You are not alone. You are loved.

I’ve been seeing a post like this make its rounds on Facebook:

My door is always open, the keurig is always on and my sofa is always warm and a place of peace and non judgement. Any of my family and friends who need to chat are welcome anytime . It’s no good suffering in silence.
I have cold drinks and tea in the fridge & coffee in the cupboard and I will always be here. …You are never not welcome!!
Blue Monday is a name given to a day in January (typically the third Monday of the month) reported to be the most depressing day of the year and January the worst month for suicides, it’s always good to talk but even better to listen.
This hits closer to home than we think. I’ll always lend an ear and a shoulder…….and my heart.
Could at least one friend, please copy and repost (not share)? I’m trying to demonstrate that someone is always listening

Friends — if you are struggling with something — please hear this loud and clear: It’s no good suffering in silence. You don’t have to suffer alone.

I know it’s hard. The first person may not listen or be helpful. And Satan will try to deceive you and tell you that there is no one out there who will listen. But try again. Find a counselor, open up to a trusted adult. In a world of 6 billion people, it’s more than likely someone near you struggles with the same thing, and if you built up the courage to say something, there might be healing in more than one person.
