Remember You are Not Alone: The Thought of Suicide
A Painful Time for Most People
Has everything become too much to cope with in your life?
· Do you feel there is no way out?
· Like when nothing matters anymore?
· Have you lost all hope and faith that things will get better?
· Do yo have no hope for the future?
· Do you blame yourself?
· Are you going to prove to yourself that you don't want to die?
You are just exhausted and at this moment feel you can't cope with the pain.
Sometimes, the pressure gets too much and individuals can be convinced that nothing matters anymore.
Suicide comes to mind at that point of their lives feel it is the-only way out of their miserable state of minds.
One can take their own lives and not even know how that would affect others. That sounds good and an only option to get away from their ruined lives.
· There is no way out life’s hassle.
Before individuals decide to take their lives they should first think of designing their own gravestones, complete with epitaph.
Start with the following:
Here: lies the name, Born; the date of birth. Died on a specific date, then the epitaph meaning a term written in regards to the dead person.
· What will others say about your life?
Leave a space for this and make a few copies of your headstone design. Give them to colleagues, friends, and your partner, kids or whoever else is close to you.
· Don't say you have no one.
· What about your doctor, or the shopkeeper where you buy your milk or bread?
You touch many people's lives whether you realize it or not. Let them fill in the blank space and return the photocopy to you.
Someone once did this who was in a problem.
This person who thought of suicide was amazed to discover what others thought about her and the role she played in their lives.
One never knows how much they are appreciated and needed. Once you start asking you will find it could give your life anew meaning as it did for this person.
· Do you have children?
· Do you have a mother or father?
· Can you imagine what Tom’s kids would have felt if he had taken his life?
Sometimes you can lose perspective, but your loved ones never do when it comes to what you mean to them.
Strangely enough you are not alone. At some stage you all fell hopeless and unable to carry on. Maybe that is how your neighbor or your boss is feeling at the moment.
Yes, it can happen to anyone, even those around you who look as though they have it all.
People get to a crossroads where they feel alone and isolated; they do not know in which direction to go or feel they can’t go on.
That is when you got to be there for one another when you need to be there for your neighbor or boss.
It is good for you to know what it feels like to be desperate and hopeless; it makes you even more valuable. Now you can help others when they get to this point.
If you persevere now you will be able to tell them of the day you lost perspective but woke up and came to your senses in time.
You will be able to mean so much to people to know how to change their lives around for the best and positive way.
· Think of anyone with exceptional skills and talent who committed suicide.
What a loss to the world!
It happened only because the person temporarily lost perspective. Look at the situation objectively and you realize it is so unnecessary. They had so many choices; so many ways open to them.
· You have choices too!
Off-course it is your right to commit suicide that is if you really want to go ahead with the plan.
Just remember to have that epitaph completed first.
While you are waiting for the photocopies to come back to you ponder a few things.
· Can you remember a time when you had an appetite for life?
· When things looked good and the future was hopeful?
· When everything made sense?
Take yourself back there and ask yourself what is so different now.
You might have lost someone or experienced a deep trauma.
So things can never be exactly the same as they were, but if you have once experienced happiness you can always find something new in life.
If not something then someone can make your life exciting all over again.
· The possibilities are endless.
The world is yours for the taking. There are things yet to be discovered or created that really can make you feel happy again.
· Still not convinced?
· Think about a time when things were really bad. You survived and overcame, did you not?
You have always been a survivor.
· Why is it different now?
Perhaps the only thing that has changed is you are older, wiser, and more experienced so you are in an even better position to handle things that used to upset you.
If you really want to commit suicide set a date a week or a month from now, and then think about what you would achieve in this time, your last opportunity ever.
You want to kill yourself so consider this: what would you do if you were told yo had cancer and had only one month to live?
· Does this begin to give you a sense of worth and perspective?
You have so much control over your life. You can end it or you can regard your problems as challenges to which you can find solutions.
· Remember you are not alone.
There is always help. You just have to ask. If you don't have a particular person in mind there always the choice of the church and many churches. The many organizations that wait with open arms to help and support you.
Wiggle your fingers and curl your toes. Go for a walk and listen to the birds. You are very much alive and filled with potential just waiting to be realized.
You will discover suffering and pain contain a message that can make your life even more meaningful and make you a more mature, richer person.
Crisis provides a chance to grow; you will miss that chance if you give up now.
· If you are contemplating suicide this letter is a must read.
· From a friend with lots of love.
The many thoughts suggested here are more than just an eye-opener for many who consider ending their lives so soon.
There is not much thought given into their situations you would surely find this information helpful.
· How often do parents say ''If only they had seen the signs?''
The signs are sometimes not seen by parents but only by the individual.
No sense in blaming others for not fixing the problem you got to prevent the suicide.
With deep thought the suicide can be prevented and one can move on easily with no issues.
· Why should you think in the attempt of a suicide and that you are alone when you are not alone?
There are many people around you who love and appreciate you. Don't forget that even those who don't show you love they care for you deep in their hearts. They just don't know how to express such feelings to you.
In taking your life it can shatter many people's lives around you and it is too late to try and save what is no longer there for you.
Live and let be experience life and faces up to challenges always remember you are loved and cared for by someone in your life.
· People can be selfish about quotes.
