How do you start to heal?

Posted on March 8, 2011 at 3:46pm 2 Comments

My 19-year old nephew shot himself last week. He and I were always very close, and he came to visit me the Saturday before he died.


I feel so lost. Of course I'm worried about his mom and am trying to comfort her. It just feels like I have no where to turn for comfort. I don't know that comfort exists. I keep wanting time to go back.


It didn't seem real at first. Then I started reading all the tributes from his friends on facebook. How could they be talking…

How r u? Sorry I haven't been in this website for a while. Early on I was upset with god for taking my brother and couldn't understand why god didnt change my brother sp that he wouldn't take his life. I do now have a Lil more understanding of where my brothers pain was. Cause about 3weeks ago I contemplated taking my life too. But instead I am turning to god I took myself to church and am praying daily. Because I am going thru a lot of stress at work am afraid of losing my job is the reason. But instead of killing myself I am giving it all to god cause I really want to live. God has been showing me in ways that he is near and holding my hand thru all this. The loss of my brother combined with this work stress wants to swallow me and it's very hard to be positive. But I just keep turning to god to take of me. God bless u and hopefully u will will find some encouragement out of my story. God bless richly and may gods peace surround u and ur entire family
