A Light in the Dark: Talk About Suicide

I write about suicide a lot. You’ve probably noticed this. I purposely bring it up. I talk about it a lot, I write about it. I make it a topic to talk about. There’s a reason.

Due to the title alone, I decided to not even send this to HeadStuff. because articles I’ve written in the past that have been ‘alternative-to-the-left’ have been rejected outright.
