Wow, it’s been a hard week. Two tragic losses and I’m devastated by the news. Kate Spade was such a light in the design world, and Anthony Bourdain an inspiration to so many, especially those of us who love to travel. My heart is so heavy.
I struggle to understand how this happens, to find the right words to say, and to learn as much as I can about depression and mental health. We lost a family friend to suicide a month ago, a death I’m still trying to wrap my head around and why he made that choice. My sister lives with a chronic pain condition and she has educated me so much about why people consider and ultimately choose suicide. She shared this article on the reasons people attempt suicide with me this morning and some personal insight I found so helpful.
We must as a society reach out and help those who struggle, to give them the space to open up about it so we can support and hopefully save them. I welcome your thoughts on this issue, and any insight you may have too.
Because I traditionally share these, some favorite links from the week:
