A Cry for Help

I stood in front of a mirror and stared at a reflection that should have been me. Yet, as I stared in the mirror, I didn’t recognize me? I could no longer see the jovial person in the mirror that should have been a reflection of me. However, the longer I stared I could see my life crumbling all around me. While constantly being attacked by an unseen enemy. I could see myself in the reflection screaming for help, but the scream was being neglected by the very people that claim they loved me. I watched as my reflection fell to her knees as she mouthed the words God, please help me as she screamed into the darkness at the unseen enemies hidden in the dark growling. When suddenly unseen hands grab her around her arms with fingers nails that were frightening. As I strained my eyes to see an unseen enemy as it attacked the reflection that no longer looked like me.  When my reflection yelled again please someone help me, that’s when I realized the scream was coming from within me. As I watched an unseen enemy carrying me into the darkness that had overtaken me.

“Don’t overlook a cry for help”

Suicide is the 10th leading cause of death in the United States. It was responsible for more than 47,500 deaths in 2019, which is about one death every 11 minutes. In 2019, 12 million American adults thought about suicide, 3.5 million planned a suicide attempt, and 1.4 million attempted suicides. Suicide is preventable and everyone has a role to play to save lives and create healthy and strong individuals, families, and communities.

Sometimes our perception will differ from the opinions of the majority, but that doesn’t make it wrong. Our perceptions are formed from our own personal experiences, values, and knowledge. When you get a proper perspective of your perceptions, you may be surprised how many other things fall into place.

  1. Happy New Year. Winston here from Iowa. I just wanted to see if you need an extra hand in the way of site upkeep/tweaking, adding emails to your newsletters from my targeted database (I have millions of them that you can use). We could even setup email campaigns for lead generation emailing at no cost to you to send out. Unique blog post material, extra traffic by getting others to start sharing your site across their own social media accounts, social media management, optimizing the site, create videos, etc also help quite a bit. I can even post ads in every capital city in the country on CraigsList for any one of their 500 categories for some immediate traffic.

    I have quite a few ways I can set all of this up and do this for you as the new year kicks into gear. I don’t mean to impose, I was just curious. I’ve been doing this for some time and was just curious if you needed an extra hand.

    Stay Safe,

    Winston
