Suicide is the second leading cause of death for everyone up to age 45. It’s a tragedy—and a full out epidemic.
So why do so many people in our world choose to kill themselves instead of living out the rest of their days?
Well, there are several reasons. From societal expectations to social media and everything in between. But another massive problem is people don’t feel comfortable talking about it.
In fact, even though I had suicidal thoughts, I had no idea my son did. I couldn’t spot it, even after he read me a cryptic story he wrote. More recently, I caught him bawling his eyes out in his car as he tried to talk his friend down from the ledge. His parents didn’t know either.
Suicide happens all the time, it’s the second leading cause of death up to age 45, after all. Yet nobody is comfortable enough to discuss it.
But you know what?
It doesn’t have to be this way. You and I have the power to change this. Forever.
And in this episode, my two oldest sons join me to discuss suicide, why it’s such a common problem, and how you can prevent suicide in your family.
