This Is Why I Share My Story

Yesterday, a friend reached out to me because they worried their sibling may be suicidal. This friend felt comfortable reaching out to me because I've been blogging and sharing my experience about recovering from my own brother's suicide. I don't know if I offered much, but I hope I offered something.

Last night was the first time I felt like my brother's death was not meaningless. It remains a terrible tragedy, and one that will forever affect me, but if my brother had to die, at least I can use the experience to help someone else.

This is why I share my story.
