You are NOT alone…
YOU .. are .. NOT .. alone…
Less than five minutes ago I learn that a guy I helped a few weeks ago, when he fell from his delivery van and injured his ankle, has commited suicide.
The thing that makes me feel sad, a little angry with myself and wishing I could turn back the hands of time is that we spoke, chatted, laughed while waiting for the ambulance.
What I failed to realise was that he was a recent depressive who was experiencing difficulties in life.
I realise that there was probably nothing I could have done to change his path or help him in the coming days that proved too much for him.
BUT, at least I could have let him know that he was not alone.
