2013 was a pivotal year for me in a number of ways.
The blog post I have screenshot and am sharing below was a tremendously healing and perspective shifting for me. I shared this widely then, and continues to a source that I draw from nearly a decade later.
I believe in synchronicity.
I believe in and welcome the arrival of the most perfect people, teachers, words, inspiration, motivation, products etc coming into my world.
As the Universe would have it, I was compelled to click on a link that led me to the following post regarding the language used in, amongst, around and in association with Suicide.
This post has shaken my core, in as much as I have been precipitating the very stigma around Suicide that I “wished” did not exist, however never thought to turn the language around as I have in other areas of my life. The author has given me a powerful tool to do just that.
No matter if or how you have had an experience with suicide this post may very well be a catalyst of change.
I am grateful for Joel Kobren’s, honesty, vulnerability and courage in the post “Illnesses that no one saw coming”.
The original website is no longer active or supported and the link above takes you to an archive which is still accessible. Regardless, I have taken the liberty to screen shot it below, including my comment and the author’s response, so that I have it, just for myself, and can always come back to read its wisdom.
