I don't know if there is any pride in saying I survived suicide or failed at my attempt back in 2019, but emmmmmm that's my story and journey and advocacy

Thank you for all you do, Marie. No one is perfect or has it all made, but for divine grace. You're so sweet. Sure your boys are all grown now, I suppose? 'Glad you lived to tell the story. What powerful testimonies from you and your friend, Belize. It is so awful to be in an abusive marriage. No one understand around would seem to understand and the African culture is set in stone to castigate the woman. You're very well loved, Sis...God's arms are all over you. Thank you for your advocacy. The world is a better place because of you. Keep remaining strong.

Love and hugs,
E. J.

Marie dear, there may not be pride. But there is LIFE! Tons of it. Gushing and flowing and building up. Not only life for you because you survived, but also life because, because of your survival many others are surviving too.
Or maybe there is pride. But even if there were, life is a greater trophy. Good on you for your continuing advocacy and care.
