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.
