Earlier tonight, a coworker texted me that she has really bad news. I thought it was about me or someone at work getting laid off but apparently, one of our ex-coworkers put an end to this thing we call life. I was and still am shocked about it.
It got me thinking how horrible life can be for people who are suffering from depression. It made me cherish this life I'm having more and made me even more thankful about the people who are out there to listen to me. Like one of my friends/ex-coworkers said, if you're sad and depressed, reach out to someone...anyone. Depression is no laughing matter. This situation has brought the meaning of the quote below to a whole different level.
Now it's almost 1am as I'm typing this and all I can think about is my ex-coworker and the people that are now left to deal with this tragic situation. I already made myself a cup of sleepytime tea with the hopes of it working despite how fast my brain is running right now.
From now on, I promise to not be too quick to judge. #heartbroken
