Chapter Member Share: Jenn's Story
Jenn made a promise to take her own life with her friend Lucky. He kept that promise. She didn't.
At this month's chapter meeting, Cleveland chapter member Jenn told her story of a promise she did not keep. Feeling ashamed for not keeping her word she distanced herself from the movement.
However she learned through our 7 Elements of Honor that it is more important to do what is right than to keep a promise. A promise to commit suicide is never a promise someone should keep.
Every day she wakes up and struggles with the guilt of breaking that promise. However her guilt and struggle with the loss of her friend led Jenn to make a new promise- one she was able to keep.
Jenn made the promise to join the Crisis Text Line, a text messaging service that helps provide support and intervention for people in crisis. Jenn kept that promise and continues to work to help others in need.
Thank you for sharing your story with us Jenn.
