I personally have lost 6 people to suicide and battled suicide and depression multiple times in my life. After the dot com crash, I lost my job and lost hope. I felt so much shame that I couldn't face my friends, housemates, and felt I was being a burden to my family. When I was in my car contemplating taking my own life I heard a voice inside saying "Eiji, hang on there's something great waiting for you."
So I perservered and while I had tremendous swings of highs and lows. I'm so grateful that I am alive today with my beautiful wife Chika of 8 years and two beautiful children Ema Faith (3.5 Years old) and Taiga Ethan (10 months) I get to empower people sharing the lessons I've learned through the tough times.
Now the message is getting louder and louder to end the isolation and share a core message and dispel the 3 lies that lead to depression and suicide. Lie #1 - We are alone. Lie #2 - We are broken. Lie #3 - We are unloved.
We are not alone.
We are not broken. (Our behaviors are imperfect but our souls our perfect.)
We are loved.
