You may even find that there are gifts that come from your grief. You will discover that you are now capable of loving more deeply than you ever imagined possible. You will look at life -- and the whole world -- differently. The little things matter far less, and the people that are there for you become far more important.
know these are just a few of the lessons I will continue to learn as I progress forward as a survivor. I'm so thankful that support groups for survivors exist and the wonderful survivor friends I have made over the years who have helped reveal some of these teachings to me. Being a survivor of suicide is a title I never expected I'd bear, but I'm finding my way through this grief journey little by little.
