Today marks the 6 month anniversary of my friend's suicide that I considered a brother to me. We knew each other since the age of 2, so we grew up together, and 6 months ago I got the call he took his life. This is very personal to me so I won't go into detail, but no matter what you believe, what you think you know, whatever, don't take it for granted. You know never know you how much time you have with a person. I learned that the day I got on my phone and learned that my friend was gone. I didn't see it coming at all. I was in total shock. Over the past few months I have learned an important lesson first hand, don't take days for granted. Show the ones you love love, for you never know when their time will come, or yours for that matter, whether it's self inflicted or not. Life is precious and when that cycle is disturbed it's a major thing to deal with, especially with self inflicted things. So all I can say if you are Christian, Catholic, Atheist, blue black or purple, never take a day for granted. You think you have so much time, but you really don't. You could die at any moment, or someone you care about more than yourself could die right now, and believe me, you do not want to get that call. So live your life like it's your last, and love others like it's their last, for you never know when it shall happen. It's the truth. People hear "don't take things for granted" all the time, but I know first hand what it feels like to do so, and I can tell you it isn't worth it. Whether you or your loved one lives for another 100 years, show all the appreciation and love like it was their/your last day. I may sound cheesy but it's the truth. In the greatest amount of pain is the greatest amount of insight, and I'm giving you my insight. Live like you were dying, never regret anything, and stay true to yourself and those you love.
