Dear Mercedes Shaday,

Hello Beautiful! My name is Brittany Robinson. I ran across your article on social media and I was heartbroken to hear the devastating news. If I had the opportunity to talk with you or even understand exactly how you felt through your silence, I would have been there for you. Sometimes we encounter situations in life with no idea as to what our next step will be or how to handle it. We bottle our emotions and feelings up sometimes, because we are too embarrassed to share with others with out being judged. So we keep to ourselves but push others that really care about us away and they have no idea. I’ve encountered quite a few things in life but I recently encountered a situation that was different for me and depression played apart of it. In our African American community we often times over look it, because we feel as though it maybe embarrassing or we are scared. I’ve learned that we can’t just sit there and not seek help. If I shared with you half of the things I’ve been through you would probably ask me “Why are you still here?!” I knew it was so much more to life than whatever situation or circumstances I encountered and I have some amazing little boys I have to live for. Nevertheless, God gives his hardest battles to his strongest soldiers! If you knew how much more to this life you had, I think you would’ve made a different choice…. Rest Beautiful β€οΈπŸ‘‘ Praying peace for your family and friends πŸ™πŸ½πŸ™πŸ½


My reason for writing this letter, was to say I understood exactly what she felt in some way. And reading that article really broke me down  in which I wish I was there to speak with her. I didn’t have to know her to reach out and help. It hurts to hear about situations like this, but we are living in a very judge mental  and cruel world its hard to feel as though we have people there in our lives to help. If you don’t know or you have no clue as to what is going on PLEASE talk to some one. Pray and ask God to help you, just do not sit there and continue to keep things or your feelings bottled up. It drains you, I know because I have done it for years. But I thank God as well as my therapist for helping me!!!
