Wednesday Wisdom👇🏾

Dear Friends,

When things go wrong

As they sometimes will,

When the road you’re trudging seems all uphill,

When the funds are low and the debts are high,

And you want to smile but you have to sigh,

When care is pressing you down a bit…

Rest if you must — but don’t you quit.

Have an amazing Wednesday,

Olivia

This Is the Face of What a Suicidal Person Looks Like:

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, and I often hear people tell me ”I don’t look like I tried to commit suicide.” How does that person look?

Just because I have on makeup or fix my hair, means I can’t think about ending my life?

Life is hard on all of us, especially those of us who suffer from some type of mental illness.

We have good days, bad days, ok days, and days we just don’t give a shit.

There are days we feel life is worth living, then other days we don’t.

Just because I mask it well, doesn’t mean I don’t have those awful thoughts.

I want you all to take this month to listen to that loved one who is going through something.

Don’t let the makeup, hair, clothes, or lies fool you.

Suicide can affect many people no matter their income, color, gender, or where they live.

Get educated, know the signs!

If someone is distant, pushing you away, wants to be alone, and no longer participating in outings. Check on them, love them, hear them out!

Don’t judge, shame, or guilt them into seeing life your way, believe me, it doesn’t work like you think.

Care for them, believe them, let them know you will always be there.

Suicide can be prevented and recovery is possible, I have managed to survive several attempts and no longer have those thoughts. Lucky me!

So remember this IS the face of a suicidal person, don’t let the mask fool you!

Do You Have a Support System????

🗣Who supports you? I’m going Live to talk about the importance of support in your business and life!

It’s so important to have that someone or lots of people to support you. I’m in recovery now because I have a support system, so check your circle and make sure everyone around you can fully support your mental health.
