Three Reasons Why Suicide is Not the Answer

In my recent book, Let That Shit Go: Learn to Process Loss and Be Happy, I share my frustration with the fact that in spite of the advances in modern science, there are more depressed and suicidal people now than ever. A reader asked, “You mention in your book that you have had a lifelong struggle with anxiety and depression. Did you ever get to the point where you just wanted to end it all? If so, how did you get past it?”  Yes, I’ve considered suicide, and I’m past it for good. Here’s how I did it.

I considered suicide when I was in my twenties, but it never felt right. Since it wasn’t my ego’s decision to be born, it didn’t seem like my ego’s decision to die, and that some higher power must know more about why I’m alive, as in “there must be some reason I’m here.”

… even cardboard boxes?!”

Rose responded with a nice little version of the simple process described in her book, Let That Shit Go: Learn to Process Loss and Be Happy

Fine Wherever You Go: Anthony Bourdain Afterlife Interview

Anthony Bourdain Afterlife InterviewI’ve done work as a medium (and wrote a book, The Afterlife of J.D. Salinger: A Beautiful Message from Beyond) but don’t do it often. However, I felt very connected with Anthony Bourdain after his death, as many did, so I thought I’d try to contact him as a kind of “afterlife interview”. 
 
I’m not claiming this is him speaking, but I know it’s not me, and will leave it open to each reader’s interpretation. It was inspired by him, which is why I’m including his photo here. My feeling is that it’s an energy that represents him in a “soul sense” as he makes his transition, as is discussed in esoteric information.
