WHEN SUICIDE SEEMS LIKE THE ONLY WAY OUT…

Advertisements

When it seems like the only way you can put an end to your pain…consider one thing

Your pain does not end there…when you end.

It simply transfers over to those who love you, to those you leave behind.

And it will stay with them for evermore.

It becomes their pain.

It will burn away at them from the inside out, as they wonder why – could they have helped – was it their fault?

I know that the place you’re in is dark, very very dark.
I know that you cannot see it now, but there is always a way back to the light.
There is always a way.

 

No one who loves you, will ever think less of you for admitting that you cannot cope, that you cannot find the way alone. 

No one will be disappointed if you admit defeat. Your demons are dark and horrible. They cannot be fought alone, you need a team.

The people who love you – they love YOU. Not the perfect version of you – just YOU.

They want you around.

They need you alive.

Ask any person whose loved one has taken their own life, if they are glad they did it, the answer will never be yes.

One thing we know for sure, is that they will not, EVER, be better off without you….

 

If suicide feels like the only way to end your pain, please remember, that it will in fact only give that pain a new lease of life and it will live on and on…

 

Somebody somewhere needs you alive…

 

Ladies, pass it on…
