Just Be … Kind

We all know life is short, but sometimes it takes a famous person’s suicide to bring this home.

I have been lucky, just one troll in all these years, and they were swiftly dealt with.

To die at 40 is horrendous. There are no words for her family.

And her family is all that matters at this point – not the usual suspects popping up to give their opinion on daytime telly.

Bit late?

Why am I saying this?

Anyone who is in the public eye, who voices an opinion, is culpable. I don’t want to hear about her last Instagram, her last photo. Her last meal.

She died alone, as all suicides do, without their family and friends.

It breaks my heart that someone so full of life could feel there was no other option, when all around them, they were surrounded by love.

We’re not here for long; if you know someone who is struggling, reach out, if you can.

They are not manipulative, seeking attention or playing games. Suicide is real, for far too many people , who are left forever wondering WHY.
