So, I had a friend who tried to commit suicide today. She's in the hospital right now and I was looking for some inspirational things to write on a card- preferably stuff that's non-religious, as she's atheist.
If you could reply to this with a nice quote or a song you would listen to to make you feel better, that would be awesome!
Even though she's not religious- I am. So I was wondering if some of you guys could include her in your prayers, that would mean the world to me.
The best things you can say are that you love her and you are there for her and ask how you can help. And let her know how important and valuable she is to you. And rest assured of my prayers for you and all involved. *Big hugs*
I don't pray, as I am atheist myself. But I wish her the power and strength of the universe to help her through this and see her value.
Remember--suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem...and given that life itself is 'temporary,' even problems that seem permanent really are not.
(There may be a better way to phrase that sentiment for your friend; tact is not my strong suit. But that is my philosophy.)
Find joy in the small things. In the sweet smell of flowers; in a gentle spring rain; in the loving purr of a cat; in the knowledge that you, alone, are unique.
Don't ever give up. Suicide is not the answer. Count your blessings and the people who love you. Try to keep busy. Meditate and stretch and exercise. Spend time outside as fresh air helps your whole body. Keep in touch with your support group. When you think bad thoughts listen to pleasant music.

Atheist, Religious/Theist, Agnostic. Out of these beliefs or non beliefs in relation to a God, which belief or non belief system is the smartest and most honest? Agnostic gets my vote because I don't see enough evidence...

A few atheists on this forum are in the habit of pushing the argument that religion causes war. Although the argument has a half a leg to stand on, I have never seen one admit that there are other causes of this...

It occurred to me, since prayer is a powerful thing, a prayer from a confessed atheist would pack a pretty powerful punch. It could conceivably bring about the miracle we've all been in agreement we'd need, if we were...
