AWARENESS POST: The inner turmoil; pain and suffering that lives in the mind every day. It feels never ending, so confusing as to why it never goes away. All you can ever say to those around you are daunting words, and no matter what others say, the pain never goes away. You start to feel like a burden and that you are alone in it all, because your constant state of struggle is just too much for anyone. Slowly, you start telling yourself that maybe they would just be better off if you were gone. You are too much. You will never get better, so why make everyone else’s life more difficult? And then, you start to believe it. You believe that being here on earth, only makes the lives of others more difficult, and you can no longer stand to suffer alone. These thoughts, impossible to push out of the mind, become more common and more difficult to ignore. So often, reaching out is impossible, because you aren’t even worth it. You don’t deserve to be here on earth and it won’t matter when you’re gone…Suicide doesn’t just happen. And it can be PREVENTED…No matter what you are going through or where you are at in life, you DESERVE to be here and are WORTHY of love and compassion and support. This world needs you.
If you know someone is struggling, reach out to them. If someone struggling reaches out to you, genuinely be there for them. Or help them find support and the help that they so deeply deserve. If you believe someone to be suicidal, ask them. People who are struggling so often want to open up, but just aren’t sure how to speak the reality of their struggles. Ask. YOU can make a difference in someone’s life.
