Celebrities Reflect On Coping Skills Following Mindy McCready’s Suicide

The Loss of Mindy McCready

mindy mccready dead1 244x300 Celebrities Reflect On Coping Skills Following Mindy McCreadys SuicideThe world lost a beautiful, talented woman on February 17, 2013. This is the day on which country singer Mindy McCready tragically died at her own hand. The suicide took place just a month after her boyfriend had killed himself, as well as in the exact same location and with a similar weapon. Prior to her death, McCready had been grieving her recently deceased boyfriend, but in increasing isolation from her family and friends.

Drug Addiction and Depression

Although she made several attempts to solve personal issues related to drug addiction and depression, McCready found herself constantly at the mercy of relapse during the final decade of her life. While relapses are common for those struggling with mental health problems, they often can be avoided with the development and continual practice of effective coping skills. Unfortunately, McCready either never obtained such skills or did not continue to practice them long enough for them to work properly.

Celebrities Speak Out

Now, celebrities who have struggled with the same problems as Mindy McCready are speaking out in hopes that others who are struggling will learn of some concrete steps they can take to ease their distress. AC/DC member Cliff Williams offers particularly valuable advice: those with sturdy social networks are less likely to relapse. Cliff says that his children and wife help to keep him stable. Had McCready had a reliable person she felt comfortable leaning on — especially in the aftermath of her boyfriend’s death — perhaps her life would not have ended so early.

A Lot to Learn From Tragedy

Despite the tragic nature of the Mindy McCready story, there is a lot to be learned, both for sufferers of mental illness and their loved ones. Perhaps the biggest takeaway: the support of loved ones is essential in times of emotional upheaval or great distress.

    Suicide is not a solution or a way out. There are ways to remove the reason why people contemplate suicide. There are ways we can get what we really want in life, thwart failure and unhappiness. These are ways unknown by many, ways of the Old religion, forged by the gods through the hands of the universe. I know what I speak of. For 31 years, I’ve been a demonolator and I telepath with powerful Spirits to give people hope, love, wealth, success, romance, cure, health, restoration, power, fame and so on. Your problem has a solution: you just need to take the step to embrace the solution. My e-mails: cliff.mystic@yahoo.com, cliff.mystic@gmail.com

      Those ‘old’ gods (i.e. false gods or demons) ARE the ‘spiritual wickedness in high places and servants of the prince of the air (i.e. satan) that contribute to evil in this world & the spiritual states of suicide & depression. Once they no longer have need of those whom serve them (i.e. you) they will send you to their destined place with no more of a thought as someone tossing out garbage. I use to be a servant to them (unknowingly) probably like yourself…until the True Way, Truth & Life rescued me (Lord Jesus Christ) via. the Good News (Gospel-see John 3:16, etc.)
