World Suicide Prevention Day 2013

Hello all

Today i'd like to make a special mid-week post, to address a topic that speaks to me as a very not only personal but important issue.

Depression & Suicide.

Its something I feel that is not talked about enough. Some may say its a act that its selfish, bitter and self-loathing and others who will just settle and say i've tried and thats it - I give up. 

No matter how small, big, long or short you've been feeling depressed, suicidal or just in general sad and lonely its a problem. The negative mind set and the bad thoughts will eventually get to you and you'll become frustrated and angry and things start happening and you'll feel irrational and helpless. It might sound cliche but honestly, your not alone. Get help; from your friends, family or doctor. If you don't feel comfortable telling those around you, resort to writing it down in a diary and letting out your feelings. Please just try? Because even if you don't feel it at all there are people who care (and if your like me that is one of the hardest things to deal with, because you even know they care but you still dont feel like your cared about and its a constant battle but please know there are people who feel the same way as you and if you don't have anyone to turn to, contact me because you are not alone).

Everyone has different issues, reasons and lives that make them who they are, but what we all have in common is the ability to think that no suicide won't solve my unhappiness, it won't make my surroundings better and I won't be living to my full potential. So please. I know there are times when you feel so helpless and that you've tried all.. XYZ avenues and forms of help to try and make things better and nothing happens. BUT IT WILL GET BETTER. STICK IT OUT. EVEN IF YOU RELAPSE. EVEN IF YOU CAN'T STOP THE BAD HABITS. EVEN IF THINGS DON'T CHANGE YEARS LATER. BECAUSE GUESS WHAT?


I hope everyone has been having a great week so far and i'll be updating again on friday!
