i am so sad right now. I have a friend from my past that I'm friends with on Facebook. Unfortunately he is going through some stuff right now. It seems to be about rejection. I have let him know that I am there for him and that I understand his darkness. It hurts because I don't think he truly understands that rejection is an Adoptee's middle name. If anyone can understand and listen and tell him how proud of him for being brave enough to reach out it would be an Adoptee.
I can't bare to see another friend take his life. It seems like everyone I have ever known from my childhood has either killed someone, been killed or killed themselves. It was bad enough that this all started when I was a preteen. It keeps continuing.
The sad story of an Adoptee is that we have pain and trauma that most people can't see or won't believe is there. So in turn they don't take us seriously. It all goes back to the being 'grateful' crap...
I believe the best therapist for anybody would be an Adoptee. We know all about the pain of rejection, the trauma, the negative thoughts, the inability to attach, and the loneliness.
