Hi Brooke – in a recent coaching call you mentioned one person’s beliefs do not cause someone else to have thoughts of suicide.
While I agree with this, I just wanted to flesh it out further for my own understanding.
For example, if person A is having thoughts of not wanting to be here/live anymore because Person B acted in a way that Person A is interpreting negatively (as in, Person A takes it as a negative reflection of their own worth) — are you saying Person B isn’t contributing to those thoughts because Person A has the ability to interpret the situation differently/any way they want?
Is that still true when Person B knows that Person A might not have this level of self-awareness or understanding?
Let me know if that isn’t clear and I can elaborate. Thank you!
