No matter what you are going through, how hard your life might seem, suicide is NEVER the answer. You might think your pain ends and everything will be alright, but the only thing that suicide does, is leave holes in so many people's hearts that can't ever be filled again.
Suicide IS preventable. Know the warning signs for suicide and how getting help can save lives.
Warning sings can be talking about wanting to die or wanting to kill themselves, talking about feeling empty, hopeless, feeling guilty, ashamed, feeling unbearable pain (physical or emotional), drug and/or alcohol abuse/use, acting anxious, withdrawing from family/friends, changing sleeping habits etc.
If you or somebody you know are struggling, please get help immediately. Even if your friend wants you not to tell anybody, I'm sure you'd rather have an angry friend than a dead friend.
Suicidal thoughts or actions are NOT a harmless bid for attention and should not be ignored.
