Your periodic reminder that telling someone who struggles with depression and/or suicidal thoughts to reach out. The thing is, when you're hit, you want to be silent, reaching out is the last thing you want to do. If you want to help, don't be passive. Be active. They're already caring a burden that feels too heavy. Help where you can. If something seems off with someone, send a text, drop a line, write an email, slide into their DMs. Let them know you're there and they are not alone. Check in.
It's really hard to stare someone in the face when they are checking you out in a very crude way.

I've been really wanting to contribute more to the Open Source community, because I rely on and use Open Source tools greatly but it's a bit overwhelming on where to start.
I just came across this resource called "First timers Only" https://www.firsttimersonly.com/ and itself is such a great resource but they list, Up For Grabs which is a tool to find #OpenSource projects that are actively seeking help https://up-for-grabs.net/#/
