I bought a cheap set of watercolor paints today so I can try to express myself better but I’m not creative at all. We’ll see how this goes…

She reminded me of the sea; the way she came dancing towards you, wild and beautiful, and just when she was almost close enough to touch she’d rush away again.

I feel totally devastated about what has happened. I didn’t even know him. I don’t even know you very well. You’re my partner’s sister. I wish there was something I could do to help, but I know there is literally nothing.
I wish I could stop thinking about it, but my comforting partner is gone all day and it’s just me now. It’s just me thinking about how horrible your boyfriend must feel and how horrible you must feel because you know as well that there’s nothing to do to help. No son should ever have to see his father like that. No wife should ever have to see her husband like that. You hear about that stuff on tv. You don’t hear it about your partner’s sister’s boyfriend.
No one knows what to do to help.. The best you can do is to just be with them and let them know you’re there for them. Nobody should ever have to go through something like this. What are you supposed to say when an immediate family member shoots themselves..?
