Confusion, sorrow, loneliness, and even depression are normal aspects of our existence, and it’s not unusual for these emotions to get the best of us and seemingly outweigh previous feelings of happiness.
However you may feel right now, chances are, there have been times when you didn’t feel this way. This suggests that something has changed in your life to get you in this particular current state, but it additionally means that changes are possible to help get you away from your present situation.
Taking your own life may seem like the only solution, but in reality, there are many other solutions available with the right guidance and support.
One thing to consider before taking drastic actions that cannot be taken back is this – just because you don’t see an immediate solution it doesn’t necessarily mean that one doesn’t exist – only that you are not seeing it right now.
Keep in mind that most crises that lead people to contemplate suicidal thoughts are only temporary. Substantial studies show evidence indicating that most issues that foster thoughts of suicide are resolvable or treatable.
Your situation, regardless of how hopeless it seems, can be resolved. All you need is the right help. Seek professional counseling, or turn to a trusted friend or loved one if feasible. Take advantage of the anonymous and confidential resources available nationwide through suicide prevention hotlines and local outreach programs.
