Yesterday I attended that old friends funeral. As far as I am aware he suffered from depression who culminated in him feeling so overwhelmed that he killed himself.
The funeral was lovely, his family was strong, the photos of him happy were many and he was sent off in a great fashion to the tune of Hallelujah. Beautiful.
Then we toasted him and his life at a personal drinks, but if I am totally honest although I felt sadness I mostly felt anger at him for going so soon and for not following his own rules to reach out and call.
I hope you all reach out and call someone…anyone!
If you are feeling low, lost or just need a friend or your mum. Please, please, just call!
Because whether you think it or not, you are cared for, someone smiles when they think of you and you most definitely will be missed.
