I know you feel like there is no hope! The feeling is temporary, even if it has been like this for a long time. There are so many examples of people who have lived wonderful lives surviving their own darkness and thoughts or even attempts at suicide. Your thoughts are fooling you. You are strong, you are loved. You are important and we need you! We need your voice and your experience. We need your help to save the world from learned safe hatred. You will get through this and learn to love yourself.
People can be so clumsy when they talk about suicide. It is not stupid - you are not stupid for having the thoughts. You are definitely not a coward for wanting to quit. Is a normal reaction to inhuman amounts of emotional or physical pain and not yet seing another way out of the living hell you are experiencing. They don't understand. But let's not punish the world for their lack of understanding. Stay. Help people understand how they can be a support for you and others. You are strong - it's not always like this! Depression is temporary! Although it feels like it's forever - it is not! What will be forever is the pain your loved ones will have over loosing you and the ongoing torment of their own thoughts that they maybe could have done something to save you - but they didn't know or know how! We need your help to see you and understand you and reach out to you. You must let us in. I know its really, really, really hard - but there is no shame in feeling this way. If someone would tell you that you are wrong, stupid or tries to "guilt" you out of it - first of all, that simply does not work! Secondly, that is a reaction coming from fear and a lack of knowledge and understanding! You are probably smarter than most, more courageous than most and are already so full of self imposed guilt and shame for being where you are. Talk with someone else. Talk to someone professional. You are worthy of life and we need you. Maybe you need a hand and a uplifting today and for some time to come, but I know that someone will need that from you in the future - when you are a survivor. A true hero - because there is no battle grater than the one we fight in our minds!
We need you. September is Suicide prevention awareness month. I don't know what more to say right now in this episode. Someone in our group of friends, father to a girl our daughter plays with, just hanged himself a week ago. We are sending all our love to the litte girl who s just 8 years old, her mother and all those who just lost a friend or piece of their heart.
