Short but sweet. I promise.
I don’t suppose to know anything about struggling with depression so deep that you consider suicide. I also don’t want to trivialize the topic by waxing poetic. I’ll give a couple of opinions and then one fact.
- I can’t imagine a pain so great that death is the only way out and the idea that someone is in that much pain saddens me.
- Although I’ve heard in this darkest hour you feel you’re alone and this act is the only way out, you are never alone.
- If you are in a state of desiring death over life, reach out to someone because someone is always there.
Call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255 because they are always available. There’s no shame in reaching out. There’s no shame in asking for help. There’s no shame in knowing your limit and understanding the ramifications of your next move.
I’m praying for all those who are on the edge…
