One person’s first-hand experience surviving suicide

Our guest featured in this video reveals this year marks the 30th anniversary of their failed suicide attempt. I had asked our guest before joining what brought them to want to share:

“Well to begin with this, Grounds For Clarity has proven to be a safe space on this topic and you Kim have shown yourself time and again to be deeply connected to, and honorable in your dialogue about this subject. Never once coming from a voyeuristic, sensationalist or patronizing place when talking about suicide; I thank you for the respect you have shown me and others.
I believe that you will give me an open and supportive platform from where I can share feels, my hopes, and the story of my lifelong struggle with suicide and those emotions that trigger those thoughts.
I am looking forward with a certain sense of dread in sharing my experiences and telling my story of not only surviving with thoughts of suicide but thriving in my life.
Finding new hope today,
V.R.R. Virginia Moore nom de plume”

Guest of Grounds For Clarity”

I ask that if you do recognize this person that you do not reach out to them personally or make any attempt to identify them publicly or online.

Thank you.

I want this to be a safe space to share my goings-on while I dig deep into my journey of self-discovery. What brings me to my desire to share my journey? I wish to provide life-coaching services to others. I coach to help others uncover what it is that is holding them back from accomplishing what is dearest in their hearts, spirit and minds. I am currently a student at iPEC, Institute of Professional Excellence in coaching. I am determined to disseminate my coaching services to all those interested. While I coach, I also would like to share bits and pieces of what it is that I do as a life coach-to-be and inversely, what I do not do. I am an imagineer, at your service. That is the best way I can describe a life coach to you. As a life coach-to-be, I can teach you how to think outside the box, consider alternative perspectives and reflect on what influences your thoughts. If any of this sounds like something you are experiencing, what is stopping you from moving forward? A space to message me may be found on the middle menu option on my home page. I acknowledge, appreciate and embody gratitude for each and every one of you and the struggles which you endeavour each and every moment. No one is a stranger to adversity. We can all overcome adversity because of our combined diversity. Thank you for contributing your time into our growing and collective, worldly diversity. Endearingly yours, Kim
