Gratitude Training Jo Englesson - All the Suicides are Hurting My Business
Date: July 27, 2020 09:35AM
Gratitude Training's Owner, Jo Englesson, who never acknowledges a single death in her community, put out a public statement about the latest "inconvenient" suicide.
Notice how she talks more about her own pain, than the victims or their families.
RIP - Rachel Heather Margolis and Leah Lamb. You put your trust in bullshit.
Jo, you left out all the others, including the boy who jumped off a bridge after graduation or the one who stood in front of a train. Or how about the murder suicide? COUNTLESS SUICIDES Your training is a cult and complete farce.
Here is Jo Engelsson "memorial letter" on the Gratitude Facebook page:
This pretty much sums up my struggles as a human being and a “business owner”
When we lose a soul in this community, it leaves a crack in my heart. With a gradbase so large, I’ve seen and personally experienced many beautiful people transition throughout the years. To me, the circumstances of their passing is never important, I simply just want to poor my heart out and let you and their families know that I care deeply. I also want to support the community with the pain death can sometimes cause, and to celebrate the good memories.
In our 1st year as a business, a Part 1 graduate had committed suicide. I reached out to mentors with over 30 years in the field and lawyers to figure out how to best respond. The fact that I had to even think about it that way was already disheartening.
The advice given to me was “stay as quiet as you can on Social Media, you don’t want anyone try to spin this and pin it on Gratitude”. So over the years, I’ve somewhat adhered to this advice, especially when I did not know the circumstances, even though I don’t agree with it from a human standpoint. Seeing people like Mark Robbins bring up 2 old incidents out of context, validated the advice.
Anyways...I’m sharing this because there are a lot of times where you don’t get to see me, just a small business owner trying to navigate the risks and responsibility from that view. It’s definitely an interesting tightrope to balance on.
So to Rachel Rachel Heather Margolis, Leah Lamb and everyone else we’ve lost. I love you and I miss you.
