SUICIDE & STAYING SAFE

“If you were born, you have a purpose. If you lived to be a certain age, you have a purpose. If you’re a human being, you have a purpose. Don’t kill the quest of finding out that purpose prematurely.”
-Unknown

Amidst everything going one, I’ll going to take the liberty of keeping this post shorter than usual.

There is one difference between this post and my other posts. I have not one but two messages of advice for readers.

Firstly, I unfortunately lost a friend to suicide last week. I know I have talked about the topic of suicide before but this time around, it’s obviously coming from a much more personal space than before.

Let me say that if you have ever felt like nobody cares about your problems and how you feel during your worst times, I’ve been there. There are more times than I’d like to admit where I felt like speaking my feelings will be futile as no one will understand.

I was wrong. And so is anyone else that feels that way now. No matter what you’re going through, someone somewhere cares. SOMEONE understands. SOMEONE out there feels just the way you do. Even if you don’t find that person immediately, get some kind of help.

The National Suicide Prevention number is 1-800-273-8255. Please take advantage of it.

I would also like to remind readers that we here at Daily Wisdom Words, we also have an advice section where you can get in touch with me or Samantha for any problem you feel you need guidance on. It is a strictly confidential interaction and completely free of charge to all members of the site.

Either way, if you’re feeling like you’ve hit rock bottom, please talk to SOMEONE.

The other advice I have for everyone is to stay safe and well. I know these are trying times for the entire world and optimism is very difficult to maintain. As I always say, if you need to vent, do it. If you need to complain, do it. Don’t hold back. Just make sure that you couple that with safety measures. As always, keep a balance of emotions.

My prayers and good wishes for all our readers and members of this site.

Thank you, Neel. There are people out there who really care, and if you haven’t been able to find them lately, perhaps you are talking to the wrong people and you need to find new friends, or even you may need to find a whole new family. I know that my own biological family horribly abused me when I was at my lowest point. So I had no choice but to leave them for awhile. It was a life or death matter for me, and it was my funeral I was looking at so I had to take decisive action… Read more »
