When you are thoughtful or kind or attentive towards other people you help them. Build people up. Care about how your actions impact others. We hear often from suicide attempt survivors that they made a pact with themselves... “If someone asks me if I’m ok... I won’t do this... I’ll get help”. Ask people how they are feeling & care about the response you hear. You may never know it but you may save a life. Because of you that person will have had an experience that if shared could save another. Many of our volunteer responders & grief facilitators have their own stories. A ripple of support often starts with a small action.
Feel how you need to feel... understand why it happened... take a deep breath... make a plan & then get on with it. You are capable of overcoming disappointments & choosing to move forward. Put the knowledge from past experience into action... Try again. Do better. Rise to the challenge. Believe in yourself. Learn from what you’re exposed to. Focus on where you are going and inform it with what you’ve left behind. REMEMBER: Just when the caterpillar though his world was over... he became a butterfly 😉
As we all prepare to celebrate the women in our lives. We’re mindful that Mother’s Day can be a difficult holiday for a multitude of reasons. Please be remember tomorrow (and each day) that everyone has different family circumstances & consider reaching out to those you know who could use a little support with compassion, respect & understanding. Our 408-HELP line is open 24/7/365 if you are finding this time difficult or simply would like to talk to someone.
Ever had a situation like this too? ______________________ Hey.. I’m so sad and tired rn but I can’t sleep and it’s about 1:30am and I’m going to be so tired tomorrow. I literally hate myself bc I’m annoying to my family and they’re just worried about me and I’m a fricking unthankful kid. I don’t feel good in my body since any weeks/moths and I think that my legs are too fat and I just don’t like my stature, in the beginning it was just a little bit annoying so I didn’t told anyone but it’s only getting worse so I thought: Let’s go on a diet or something so I can be thinner. So today I started with my diet and I didn’t ate anything in the morning and also nothing in the afternoon so dinner was the first meal I had today and after meal I wanted to exercise but my condition is bad and after 12 minutes of the 38 I couldn’t do the workout anymore. I tried to do other exercises like push ups and wall seat but also after any seconds I gave up. But later I was like: fuck it I’m just gonna eat so I ate but I ate way too much and rlly unhealthy. But you probably can’t live with only dinner on a day so I’m going to make a better plan. Actually I just want to stop with everything and I have no motivation for anything. I just want to die but I hope it will get better soon. ______________________ #depression#mayholidays#tiredandcantsleep#feelingsuicidal#sadteen#selfharmmm#wanttoloseweight#wanttodie#killmeplease#imannoying#hatemysef#suicidalthoughts#wanttorecover#night#145am#sadness#weak#weakgirl#badcondition#wanttokms#depressedquote#hungrybutdontwannaeat#whydoiexist#🖤🌙
“You are not born with a fixed amount of resilience. Like a muscle, you can build it up, draw on it when you need it. In that process you will figure out who you really are—and you just might become the very best version of yourself.” - #sherylsandberg
