This is an excellent, helpful post. Suicidal feelings and thoughts can seem so rational. It can seem like a sensible solution. But, since there is often shame attached to suicide, some people do not seek help from the nearest and dearest. And usually, people not trained to deal with a suicidal person cannot help. Professional help is of the utmost importance.
Hello, My Friends.
September is dedicated to Suicide Awareness.
Vulnerable people don’t always appear to look vulnerable. They look just like anyone walking their dog on the sidewalk, a co-worker sitting alongside you at work, a mother rushing through the grocery store picking up food for her family, a child studying for a test. Yes, people just going along their day normally can be holding in pain so devastating, yet to appear just that… Normal on the outside to the others around them.
The most horrifying thing about suicidal thinking is the feeling of losing all hope to live. You feel estranged from yourself. Your mind is spinning out of control and the only thought lingering is to escape from your own thoughts. You just want your mind to stop racing and the only way some people see this ending is if they themselves end their lives.
