Help for Self
So things have really gotten bad, yes? If we could, we would sit and sip a latte with you and just listen. For hours. Because we’ve been there, too. Many, many people have faced these questions head-on.
Do I continue living, day after day? Is it worth it? How can things possibly get better? Would anyone even care if I just checked out?’
Maybe you’ve done something you regret and the pain is unbearable. Or something unacceptable has been done to you. Maybe you don’t even know why, exactly, you have come to this point in your life. This doesn’t mean you’re crazy; it means you are feeling deeply and you’re having trouble coping with your situation.
It can be very difficult to see the sun through the clouds when they’re so thick and menacing. But you need to know: even as the storm rages, the sun shines as it always has. And there are amazing blue skies just above those dark clouds, if we will wait a little while to see them.
Can we offer you some thoughts today? If you’re really thinking about ending your life, wait. Give it time. It’s not a decision you can take back. Think soberly and seriously – your life has meaning and purpose in this world, and removing your presence permanently is not something to take lightly.
Talk with someone – get a change of scenery – put some distance between yourself and your feelings of despair. You matter, and we can’t bear to lose you!
If you need to talk with someone right now, please reach out and make a call.
