I was here

If you let suicide win, we all lose.

Sometimes life can get the best of us. We have all been there. I’ve dealt with depression and anxiety in the past and know how it feels to even consider it.

But suicide is a permanent irreversible reaction to a temporary problem. No matter what the problem is that you are facing in life, it won’t last forever. Nothing does. Everything is temporary, even life. So you HAVE to hold on just to see how YOUR whole story will play out, how your kids will turn out, how your family will change/grow, etc. There is so much to look forward to. You may not see it at the time, but you won’t see it at all if you go through with committing suicide.

I know when things reached an extremely low point for me, I was too curious to see how God was going to fix that mess that I didn’t make, to miss out on it.

I held on! Sure enough, I am in a much better place now. The feeling is never totally gone, especially in the state of the world we live in today, but again, I just think these crazy times will eventually end. They have to.

Please, please, please don’t do it.

Talk to someone. And if you don’t feel like you can talk to anyone, there is always a pen and some paper. Write! Grab a notebook and write until your heart and mind are clear. It may take days, weeks, months, or years but get it out of your head.

Journaling can bring clarity and forgiveness.

Journaling can save your life. I truly believe it saved mine.

Talk to someone. Or write it out. But deal with it either way before it gets the best of you. Anything that you are passionate about, stay here for it to help get you through the tough times.

If you let suicide win, we all lose.
