It's More Than Just Asking...
...for help, if you are suicidal. You have to be willing to take a chance that the help offered is true, and you ARE worth it - and accept it!!!
We recently lost a family member to suicide. He suffered for more than 11 years with guilt, over the loss of his sister in a drunk-driving accident. He could never get past the fact that he introduced her to the driver.
He was so loved, by so many people; but was unable to accept it, over his guilt and pain. Personal demons will make you do irrational things - it's a huge protagonist in Domestic Violence, a situation he came out of as a toddler.
If you are battling suicidal thoughts, contrary to popular belief, talking about them does not make you more likely; but just the opposite.
"I wish more people would acknowledge that suicide is often in the back of MANY people's minds. That could help take away some of the power, and let you know you're not so alone." - DKH (122721)
The numbers for suicide hotlines are all over the place right now. Again, if you feel suicidal, reach out, and ACCEPT the assistance that is offered you. There is another option...
Have a good day, and be safe... #listen #ibelieveyou #doyouhear
