“It always crosses my mind, but it’s just a thought”.
Everyone has their own opinions when it comes to suicide (well for everything really), some thinks its an act of the coward, some say “only weak minded people commit suicide”, some say its a selfish act.
Really it’s looked at as an “easy way out”, but it isn’t. Your temporary situation may be ongoing right now but it doesn’t require a permanent result. As i’m writing this i’m having to soak in every word i’m writing for myself because i too have suicidal thoughts. Its been ongoing for years but i like to think of myself as an strong individual. I know whatever i go through i will get through. I respect that not everyone has the same heart and mind as i do but i refuse to allow my situations to define me, you should too. Everything happens for a reason which you may not be clear off yet but it will make sense to you soon.
It’s important to be kind to everyone you come across because you never know what they’re battling with and a simple dispute could be their last straw. I’m not a therapist nor am i professionally experienced in this field but i can only advise anyone dealing with mental health from my own personal experiences that journaling and praying is what keeps me sane on a day to day basis but for long term, i would recommend therapy. Simply speaking to someone who you don’t know and who doesn’t know you and who also has the mental capacity and patience for you and whatever situation you’re facing.
⁃ Find your purpose to go on & love yourself through it.
⁃ Daily affirmations
⁃ Cry if you need to, prove nothing or explain yourself to no one but yourself. Crying isn’t a sign of weakness it’s a release.
⁃ Take time out for yourself whenever you need to.
These are what i use to get through hardships without explaining myself to anyone.
My bounce back will be amazing, your bounce back will be amazing and we will look back to this and be grateful we never gave up 💕
