Are You Suffering and Not Sure if You Can Go On? Keep Talking... #inspiration #motivation #MondayMot
Are you suffering and not sure if you can go on?
Remember this important piece of advice: the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.
Over the past ten days, two celebrities have committed suicide. From the outside it seemed like Anthony Bourdain and Kate Spade were living the "perfect" lives. They had fame, money and success. They should've been happy, right?
The news about Anthony Bourdain hit me hard as I've been a fan of his for a very long time. I met him once at a book signing. I asked him the secret of his success. His response?
"Do what you love. Work hard and don't let anyone tell you you're sh*t."
We all have demons, even celebrities. We have to fight these demons at every turn otherwise they take us over. These demons want to break us, break our spirit and end our lives. We can't let them.
I've struggled with demons for most of my life. One way I fight them is to talk to someone. I talk everything out with MR N. He understands because he loves me unconditionally. Talking lets out the darkness and ushers in the Light.
Suicide is a permanent solution to a momentary weakness. You can't take it back.
Find someone to talk to, even if it is a suicide prevention hotline. Don't let the demons best you. As Pink Floyd says, you've gotta keep talking.
