Sometimes I have random memories of moments that were very painful to me when my brother Matthew died by suicide. I’m not ashamed of my grief, my brothers suicide, the darkness that I had to walk through to get to the light. I experienced it for a reason and now its my purpose to share the light with others.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
After Matthew’s suicide, I had terrible panic and anxiety attacks. As a way of coping, I used to punch my fists over and over again on the concrete, it was my way of making my internal pain make sense at that time😢Of course now, I’d never do that but I extend my past self endless compassion and love and I’m extending the same to anyone dealing with a loved ones suicide or feeling suicidal. It is a dark, lonely road. But you are not alone. And as cliché as that may sound, it’s true. Check out my project @roses4mb to learn more about my story and what I’ve learned from my brothers suicide. Our journeys aren’t as meaningful if we don’t help others along the way. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Peace and Love💜 #suicideawareness #suicidelosssurvivors #mentalhealthawareness #stigmafree #roses4mybrother

At any moment, no matter the circumstance, there is so much to be grateful for. Even in the darkest moments of our lives, when everything seems to not be working out, give thanks that you are still living, breathing, and moving. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
‪Did you know that the odds of being human are 1 in 400 trillion?😳A human life is truly the most precious thing. You have the ability to feel, think, create, love, inspire and connect with others. Give thanks today for the fact that you’re here in this physical reality and have the choice of free will. Create wisely and with love always, that is how we make the world a better place. Remember gratitude and kindness will take your further than any talent💛Peace and Love

This happened today as I was heading back into my office. I am overwhelmed mostly but ultimately thankful that I was able to help this man from potentially losing his life. His name is Anthony, his mom died from cancer and he is homeless😥Please donate (if you can) to help Anthony. (Link below and in bio). Everyone deserves compassion, love, and somewhere to stay at night. Bit by bit we can make the world a better place

I love it when my mom sends me random pictures of Matthew, especially ones of him smiling🤗
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Matthew had a quirky sense of humor and was super random. He was always down for an adventure, whether that was playing manhunt in the woods (I grew up in the country lol) or stuffing his clothes with more clothes like the Michelin man😂The smile in this pic means he was probably trolling my brother Delante and was in a good mood. I cried when I saw this pic bc it hit me that although I’ll never see this face physically in this plane, we will meet again in the life to come🙏🏾And it most definitely will be a movie 🙌🏾 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is the joy that Matthew has now. This is why I don’t want you to ever tell me “Sorry for your loss Grace”, because there is no loss when you know/overstand that life is never over. And there is no separation, that is the greatest illusion. Everything is connected and everything vibrates and I am more closer to my brother now than I ever was when he was alive physically. So please, no apologies🙏🏾
⠀⠀
Peace and Love to you all💜

Two years ago today my brother died by suicide. Two years ago today my life was changed permanently to what I thought was sadness and depression that would last forever. Since then, I’ve been on an indescribable path of healing and self-discovery. Two years ago today I knew I’d never experience joy again. No one could convince me otherwise. But here I am, living and I am genuinely, deeply happy. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
In honor of my brother Matthew, it’s time to share @roses4mb (IG account) with the world. This project will share my story of healing from my brothers suicide and my personal experiences with suicidal feelings and mental health in general to support people dealing with the same things and those looking to support. Send me positive energy and supportive vibes💜I love you all ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
