About a week ago my cousin committed suicide. He had been disconnected from the family because of a fight and moved back to Arizona so he wasn’t in touch with any of us. He had been my best friend before the family got into an argument. It has been about a year since I last talked to my best friend, and now he is gone.
I’ll never have an opportunity to reach out to him and tell him I loved him despite our disagreements. No one knew how sick he was and I feel so awful because he must have been so sad. I went to my twenty-year-old cousin’s funeral. I told him I loved him for the first time in almost a year.
Never miss the opportunity to tell someone you love and care for how you feel. You never know what will happen tomorrow. Mental illness is real and no one should be left alone. Tell the people you love that you love them. Rest in Peace best friend. I will never understand why God took you so soon.
