Your life is falling apart, and you feel there’s nothing you can do to stop it. You want to just give up. You can’t go on anymore. Life has become too painful for you. The pills and alcohol are calling your name….or however you might choose to do it. You feel unwanted and horribly alone. You believe that no one cares about you because people treat you like you’re invisible. You scream for help, but no one answers your cries. So you write that note… Then you down that bottle of pills… You’ve tried to end it many times before, but they’ve all failed. This time though, it finally works. You’re dead.
Life can be very cruel and painful. We all know that. Life can be horribly unbearable sometimes. But killing yourself isn’t the answer. That won’t solve anything. Your problems are temporary, remember that. Your circumstance won’t always be the way they are. Regardless of how shitty things are right now, IT DOES GET BETTER. You just have to give it time. Things will eventually look up. I know, that sounds like a bunch of bullshit at the moment. You’re asking “I’ve been waiting for things to get better for a long time now. When the hell are things going to get better?” Well… here’s the thing, you have to WANT things to get better. If you don’t want things to get better, they won’t. In fact, things may get worse. You have to keep a positive attitude instead of believing that things will never get better. No matter what your mind tells you, you have to believe otherwise. Our minds viciously attack us and try to get us to do things we would never do otherwise, like attempt suicide. We can overcome our minds and win this battle we’re all secretly fighting. We may look fine on the outside, but inside we’re screaming, we’re dying, we’re crying… So be kind, you never know what someone is dealing with.
One final thought: You can love life again. You may hate life right now, but you won’t always feel that way. One day, you’ll look back and think, “Damn, I’m so fucking glad I didn’t give up.” 🙂
