Prayers and good thoughts please
My GF called last night to tell me her 12 yr old grand daughter tried to commit suicide. She has been in counseling as they knew she was having difficulty and they were being proactive, but obviously they weren't prepared for this. The entire family is shook. Seems to be around school and classmate issues. Children can be so cruel. And at that age, no matter how much your family loves you, you need acceptance from your peers, and if they don't give it, it can be so devastating. With hormones raging and everything at that age seeming so totally important and life critical, it's a huge load to bear on little shoulders. I'm sometimes amazed that any of us have survived adolescence.
Please send loving thoughts to Samantha...she sure could use them.
