Beautiful. I used to volunteer for LifeLine too, when I lived in another city, and I felt so much admiration and wonder for the people who picked up the phone, called, and shared their difficult stories. For someone to affirm their own sadness about feeling suicidal is for them to affirm, in fact, their love for life, and the spark of hope that they still feel about life’s beauty and potential. Making that call — or, really, doing anything healthy to help yourself avoid suicide — truly is a magnificent act of bravery and humanity, and it benefits us all.

Love, sex, dreams, soul, adventure, healing, feeling. I kinda experience life as magical. Memoir is my jam.
