For those who struggle, it is a nightmare.  For those who have had their lives torn apart because a loved one committed suicide, the pain continues.  The questions continue.  Suicide of a loved one often destroys the lives of those left behind.

Please join me for a free online webinar as we discuss a mother's promise to help prevent suicide.

I'm Not Okay

All too many try to hide the difficulties they face in life.  I've done it and I know many that have been there in those same shoes.  In fact, I still do it at times.  To say, "I'm Not Okay" is a difficult thing to do.

There are many reasons we do this.  Some of it is what we were taught growing up.  Some of it is because of shame.  For guys, it is about having to be in control and not show weakness at any time.  In some cases, other people in our lives don't want to hear the difficulties we face because they are too uncomfortable around it.

One of the YouTube vloggers that I follow is in the following YouTube video.  In this video, Dan (Mallow610) talks about how he suffers with depression, anxiety and other mental health issues.

The YouTube video is very open and honest.  I am glad he found the courage to share this.  He is most definitely not alone even though it may feel like that at times.  Thanks Dan for sharing this!
