Commit Suicide

When my father died. For a long time I tried to avoid the word suicide. And when I did use it I would also attach ‘commit’ to it.

In time I realised ‘commit’ was not an appropriate word to use. To ‘commit’ suicide once upon a time was a crime in this nation.

It is no longer a crime. Therefore in my opinion I will not use the word ‘commit’ any longer to describe death by suicide.

It’s not fair on the victims of suicide nor their families and loved one’s left behind for them to carry this extra burden on.

My father was not a criminal. Far from it 😄

Break the Stigma.
