Well done for sharing this video on a topic that has so many people down. I wish I understood it more and saw the signs faster when my dad lost his life to Depression and suicide and you’re so right, most people live with it who you’d never thought even had it that when it strikes you’d never say they are depressed. Had I seen the signs maybe I could’ve helped him, 13 years on and it still feels like yesterday that this total bomb hit our family. You never forget, you never give up wishing for 5 more minutes just so that you can tell the person you love them and that it’s ok. The hard part is that they didn’t see the tears that was cried when they took themselves from this life, they don’t realize the impact of their death in this way, how 13 years down the line still affects the ones they’ve left behind. So for a space like this where you can reach out or even just listen, is great. You touched on post natal depression…..again something so real! I never knew how complex it can get until I suffered from it. Trying to be the perfect mother, showing everyone that you know exactly what you are doing when you have no clue, listening to everyone’s opinions on how you should be raising your child, confusing the shit out of yourself about what it is that motherhood is and coming to terms with your body once you’ve brought your baby home, all these things affect your mental state and it can get really bad, and worse if you don’t have a support system. It’s so real and it’s so hard. I commend you for speaking out Marette, it’s tough and I know that you are in a safe place. You have an incredible friend in Natasha, and I know she will always be there for you. Allow her in because she will keep your heart safe. Know that you are loved in many ways and that you can always count on her. I’m sorry you had to experience the hurt of loosing someone close to you to suicide, it’s horrible and it’s hard. We, who are left behind have to deal with this loss and just dealing with loss in general is hard in all its forms. Wishing you lots of love and big hugs, you girls are creating a better place for many young girls and that’s incredible!
Yayyyy for the one’s with big hearts❤️
