This Common Support Group Phrase Had a Double Meaning When I Was Suicidal

A while back, I made a note about something that was said to me in a support group meeting. This happens often. In many meetings, I will find myself writing down insights others share so that I can ponder them later.

This particular phrase isn’t an “insight,” however. It’s said often in these types of support groups and the one who says it probably has no idea that it can have two meanings.

It’s spoken as casually as the more common term, “Thanks for sharing,” that several say at the end of every share. Most of the time, this expression is saved for those instances someone shares a particularly heartfelt experience.
