Grieving


A dear friend of mine took her life on Monday night. She had been struggling for a long time.

In a way I can't even be sad that her pain is ended.

But she was only 25 and such a bright spirit in some ways.

I'm not at a place to say anything thought-full about it. I'm pretty much all emotion.

OH, dear, how awful. It is so sad when someone kills themselves no matter what the experience or reasons. I'm sorry to read of your loss. My own family has experienced a lot of loss lately, including a younger member of my extended family who suddenly died this past summer (he was 42). Ugh! My thoughts are with you!

Oh boy Pam, I'm so sorry; I only saw your post today.

I am so sorry to hear about your friend. Words can't do justice to what you must be experiencing right now. I hope that when you connect to the great web of souls during Meeting, you will find hers and find a measure of peace.

In the Light,

Claire

I'm so sorry, friend. Peace to you all.

I am sorry to hear that.

Fortunately, I have never known anyone who did that, but I have met many women who have told me the had wanted to die, or wished they had never been born.

I think it is a terrible tragedy because I firmly believe that every life is a wonderful experience and needs to be cherished. I also recognize that many have had hard lives (far too many in my opinion) and dark shadows hang over them.

Take care.
