A Candle in the Dark: The Impact of Coping Methods |...

TEDx Talks Follow
  • Video description
  • 3 years ago
In the years of therapy and healing following her suicide attempt, Drew Ford came to recognize her own self worth and learn about coping mechanisms. The idea that she could find peace in the midst of storms by redirecting her thoughts and engaging in healthy, cathartic activity, something she once found offense with, soon became a life-saving tool she used in her crisis. In telling her story, Drew hopes to provide hope for those in similar situations to hers and to provide an alternate perspective to the pessimistic view she herself was once in. Although happiness may not be a choice, seeking positivity can be, and this can make all the difference. Having learned the importance of doing what you can in the midst of darkness to find light & hope, Drew Ford hopes to inspire others to light candles within their own lives to one day see the future they deserve to reach. Drew Ford is a senior at Clear Brook High School. She is the current President of Clear Brook's theater program, the Clear Brook Players, and works as a Student Leader and a regular volunteer at her church. She is a hopeful poet and aspiring social worker. She is also the survivor of her own suicide attempt. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
