I put everything that reminds me of Eric into a little box, and gave it to my best friend to keep for me. These things used to give me an excuse to be sad and depressed. I didn't want to throw them away... But I didn't want to easily be able to reach them... Today, I wanted to look at the pictuer I have of Eric... But it's in the box. Did I do the right thing?

Eric was a friend of mine who commited suicide in December 2008. I didn't know him VERY well... But his death was the first experience with death that I've had. And it's hit me hard...I'm so confused.

You know what? You are doing the best you can to make it through this difficult time, and take care of yourself. It's not easy to go through losing someone, especially the first time. You can be thankful for the times you had with them and remember what they brought into your life, but you can't wish them back forever...someday you will realize this. It doesn't do very much good to go over the things you wish you would have done or said because it's just not going to happen that way. Everyone wishes they could go back and change things, but life doesn't work that way. Every day you must make a choice of life or death...chose life!
