We stumbled across this cliff side on a small hike along the coast on our recent trip. This place was very eerie. For such an incredibly natural beautiful place I’ve never felt so confronted. •
For a place that we walked to to admire the surrounding sea side and to find this daunting last hope for all those who felt that they couldn’t carry on anymore. It was incredible.
Their names have been painted and engraved in the stone by their family and friends. It’s not an easy thing to see. Knowing that where we stood, someone stood who felt like their only way out was just one last step.
If you feel a similar way, feel like you can’t take it anymore please speak up. Your friends will listen, your family will listen, a neighbour, co-worker anybody. Just talk about how you’re feeling to someone. Don’t let this beat you, you’re stronger then you think you are.
Mental illness and mental health aren’t a joke. If you notice a change in someone ask them how they’re going and don’t settle for “I’m fine” “I’ll be okay” or “it’s nothing”. We need to look out for each other, everyone’s came close to or even lost someone to mental illness.
