On October 29th, 2019, a hero was taken from this world and claimed by G-d as an angel. Having lost my father almost a year ago, I know the weight that heavy pain can leave on one’s shoulders. I know what it is like to grieve an unimaginable loss and to wish more than anything you can turn back the hands of time. I also know what it feels like to search for answers that you can never find and the disappointment that inevitably creeps up without consent. As much as I have come to understand that the world is not always in our favor, I have also come to understand that no matter how broken we feel that we are, we will not be broken forever. Even when the light is not shining so bright, we still have the power to laugh and to love and to live. This blog is meant to bring to the surface, grief, pain, how we deal with it, how we can continue on a path while also dealing with loss, how we can distract ourselves, and how we can learn to forgive the people who have wronged us. My father’s inner demons led him to take his own life, and seeing how many people were affected by his decision, I NEVER want anyone to experience the horrible reality that has now become my horrible reality. “Suicide is not the answer. It is not the only option,” my sister has said before. There are ways to get help and to anyone that is struggling deeply, let me remind you that the world is better because you are here and that you are loved by so many, including myself. I know that it can be frightening to ask for help and to let someone else take control of the reigns for once, but you deserve to be here. I hope that by sharing my story, I am saving someone’s life, as well as using my experiences to help aid other people that may be going through something very similar. I welcome you to the We Got This blog because let’s be honest, we got this.

  3. So proud of you Dylan! Not sure you know this, but I went through a horrible family tragedy when I was only 12. It sucked and it was so hard to face my peers who had no clue what I was going through and not sure they wanted to. You are helping so many by putting yourself out there. Never easy but always worth it. I wish that I had a peer to talk to back then.
    That being said, please know I am here if you ever need to chat with someone who gets it. You got this!! Xoxo

  8. Dylan,
    Thank you for your heartfelt and honest words. I lost my mom at a very young age, so even though our specific experiences are different, I know how you feel. Keep expressing yourself and keep the memories close.


  9. Dylan, I am so impressed with this blog you’ve created to let others know “we got this.” I’m not surprised by your strength, but I’m still in awe of it! As and Alexa (and your mom) continue to process this shitty situation you were handed, I’m glad that you have the ability to put yourself out there and tackle an ongoing discussion about suicide and ALL of the lives it alters. You got this, you are a badass and I, like many who love you, am grateful for your honesty. ❤️❤️


  10. You are truly remarkable. To take your pain and not only express it outwardly but creating a platform to help others dealing with serious issues. You defiantly ” GOT THIS”.


  11. Dylan,
    You have no idea how much you have touched me with your words and story. Your strength has given me the strength to deal with whatever life brings and compared to your loss, my problems are so petty and small. I literally feel ashamed of myself for being so selfish. Thanks for your articles and I am grateful for myself that I took time to read them. I have been hearing so many kinds of losses in past 6 months and want to be able to bring change in anyway I can in people’s lives. I want to hear what people have to say and make them feel less lonely and depressed. Many blessings and hope we cross paths someday.


  12. Dylan, this is such a beautiful expression of your thoughts! It’s incredibly well written…so sensitive, caring and empowering to your readers. I’m sure you are reaching people who need to hear your story so the can be comforted and inspired by you!
