Someone I highly respect tonight started talking to me about my video about suicide. I retreated into my corner and I asked him out loud “can we please not talk about that in public?” I refused to talk about my own suicide. How could I fault anyone else for not talking about it? It took balls for my friend to bring up what I’m trying to talk about and “I” let him down because I was afraid to talk about it.
I failed the first test. I promise you all I will not fail the second one.
