Suicide

Suicide occurs every day. In one way or another, it has touched us all.

Sometimes, it is done suddenly and unexpectedly.
Sometimes, suddenly and expectedly.
Sometimes, it is done slowly, over time.

No matter the how or the why — it leaves those left behind with many more questions than answers.

It leaves those left behind with grief.
It leaves those left behind with remorse.
It leaves those left behind with unimaginable, unending and undeserved guilt.

This story is dedicated to those who could no longer survive, and to those who remain behind, and have no choice but to do so.

For every one person who overcomes their demons, there are hundreds, if not thousands, who do not. This is one of their stories.

“Who am I?”

I am an independent, self-published teller of tales. I am an author of scarcely any renown. However, as a storyteller, I know who I am, and with that persona, I am both confident and comfortable. I invite you to visit my website,  ShortStoryScribe.com and/or Amazon Author Page, if you are so inclined please purchase a copy and leave a review.

Thank you,

Joe

      1. I wrote the novella for those left behind. It is written in first person narrative and may have been one of the most difficult writing endeavors I have undertaken.
        However, in doing so, my mind opened quite a bit and made me question my own preconceived thoughts and ideas, while also making me grateful for what I do have and taking the obstacles as they come.

      2. If I didn’t know how triggering it’d be I’d buy it, but unfortunately I can’t, and will just have to believe in how awesome it is (I don’t read most mental health novels as they send me spiraling, which I’m way too close to the edge as it is)

      3. I would never want that to happen. We must do what is best for us and keep ourselves safe and protected.
