    I lost my big brother to suicide 6 months ago and todays his Birthday,

    I'm a 26 year old male.

    I am worried that I'm not going in the right direction and also I'm not in any place long enough to
    meet with local councillors or seek advice.

    I think about him everyday and have an endless list of unanswerable questions and doubts.

    I'm not looking for sympathy or anything like that , but I'm hoping to find some people who have has similar
    loss in their life and can lead me to a more guided path.

    I have been backpacking around the world for 6 years now and began my journey with my big brother,
    recently ive been feeling less motivated and now so empowered like i used to.

    When i returned home last week for a family visit i really felt the pain and sadness hit me very unexpectedly.
    Now I want to have some more emotional direction - if that is even a word? But im sure there are others in the same boat as me and i hope to come out of this much more positive and better off than now.

    Thank you for your time

    Hmm. This has potential to lead to depression if not dealt with. I would suggest that you speak to a counselor.
