About 2 years ago, I was in a very heavy depression due to alot of things. I separeted 5 years ago from my ex husband, then I met Jon Baudys who I dated for about 2 years on an off. At that time I didnt know anything about Buddhism, he was very depressed and I didnt know how to help him, because I was depressed as well. One day he message my name 8 times and I was sleeping and I couldnÂ’t wake, then he never reply.

I waited 2 days and nothing. I went over to his house at night with my friend Alex, I was able to see his feet thru the window and he wasnt moving. I call the police and the worst has happed he was dead.

He kill himself and I found him. I became very depressed like a felt in a hole and I had no exit,

I was drinking going out and didnt care about anything not even my daughter. I was so tired of life, the sun was bright but my life was dark, sad. I tried killing myself twice. The second time I tried killing myself, was when I realize that my family care for me, my friends care for me, my daughter care for me.

I dont know why or how I came across Buddhism, I got a book explaining to me how everything works. I was very heavy medicated for depression and anxiety, but I stared to maditate, and live my present, staying in the present was very hard because I was always in the past and I had no future. I learn to stay in the present and learn how to appreciate the small things, like flowers, trees, the small animals, the sun.

I lean not to lose hope and love myself. Buddhism remind me to be myself and learn about the myself. I came across a book awakening loving kindnesses, and that book is one of my favorites because it was so many stuff I like and I get very motivated. I love life now, I dont know how I tried to kill myself before. Buddhism remind me of everything is out there and not to hold anything back. I cant change my past, or predict my future, all I know is that I should enjoy my present and open my eyes to enjoy the little things puts across my path.

And this is my story I want to share with everybody. Buddhism for me is away to see things different and to have a different way to look at life, to believe, to be happy.
