I’ve been public about the hard time of Trent’s passing, but this one, my first really hard time, I’ve kept private. I was ashamed about this part of my history, but not anymore. Thoughts of suicide are common—too common—and I hope talking about them will help someone, even if that someone is only me.
Heads up: This episode references suicide. If you or someone you know may be struggling with suicidal thoughts, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255 or text TALK to 741741.

“I like that the trees were so creative… With different kinds of leaves… My favorite ones were shaped like mittens.“
Trees like the music, the gospel music you heard that brought you to the light, have spirit and presence and can heal us as much as music. It’s so beautiful that you found both on your journey, embraced them and they brought you in, welcomed you in their arms, brought you back to earth.
A beautiful episode, so much courage to share this part of your life/heart/spirit.
Thank you, Didi for your beautiful message! I hadn’t thought about trees being like music or taking me into their arms… now you’ve got me thinking!
