If you are thinking about completing suicide,
Your loved ones will NOT be better off without you.
They will be shattered beyond anything they have ever known.
They will carry that pain forever.
And you, all that you are, all that you can become,
all of your incredible potential that you can’t see right now
(but that exists, nonetheless)-
all will be utterly and completely
lost annihilated erased.
Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
It is FOREVER.
There is no “do over”.
It cannot be taken back.
It changes everything, for everyone, for forever.
It ends dreams and creates nightmares.
It shatters hope and creates despair.
It steals away all potential
and leaves a wasteland of regret and pain.
It disrupts the natural order of life,
with profound chaos and destruction
of that person’s beauty, depth, meaning, and spirit.
Please stay, please try. Please call for help, please do it now.
You are important. You are significant. You matter.
Pain can be alleviated. Fortunes can change.Relationships can be mended.
We can find healing for our hurts and restoration of hope.
We can bless others by allowing them to hold us, carry us, and hope for us
Until we can do it for ourselves.
This is a part of the true meaning of being fully human . . .
Whatever has happened, whatever you’re feeling, whatever you’ve experienced . . .
This can get better. There are answers. There are solutions.
You do not have to die to find them.
Please, choose to LIVE.
