Oh I'm so sorry, don't feel guilty for feeling happy, would she really want you to be upset? I highly doubt she would she'd want you to be happy so don't feel guilty about it. PM me anytime.

'Cause there's no pride to be found when you follow sheep around..

I knew the anniversary was around this week.
Please don't feel guilty love. I think a lot of us still miss seeing Sheri around the place because she was such a great person, but remember life still goes on, hard as it may be to believe, and if no one could ever feel happy again after someone died the world would be a pretty crappy place. I think it's great that she was able to help you so much but I don't think she'd want you feeling bad for being happy now.
Take care love. *hugs*

Hey there, Jenny.

Sheri's loss affected our community in a lot of ways; it's never easy to lose someone, even "just an online friend." She helped a lot of people here and I think it was very difficult for a lot of people to say goodbye to her, so suddenly and unexpectedly.

Losing someone to suicide can be a tragic and heartbreaking experience, but there comes a point when we begin to make peace with even the most saddening of losses. I don't think you should feel guilty at all for being happy. After all, I think Sheri would want for you to be happy, don't you?

It can be hard to understand why someone who fought so hard to give others hope could lose all hope, themselves. Try to remember that she is at peace now, finally at rest. Although it may not make things better, maybe it will help to keep that knowledge in your heart. And as hard as it can be, try to remember her and smile. Remember all of the good she did in her life and on TeenHelp. Remember her as (I think) she would want to be remembered; someone who loved helping others and who left her mark on the lives of so many people.

Take good care of yourself and never be afraid to talk about things. Please know, too, that I'm always here if you need someone to talk to. I'm just a quick PM away.

Someday I will be strong enough to lift not one but both of us.
I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
