“If you learn anything… please learn to ask for help. It is a sign of wisdom and strength.” – David Skorton, Cornell University President
My family has been touched by suicide.
You never think it will happen to someone in your family, because you never really think. You hear of other people taking their lives and you wonder how they could ever bring themselves to do something like that and then you think of their families and how devastated they must be but you never really think. You never think of the real feelings of a broken heart that is spreading around the family who woke up with one less member than was there when they went to bed. You never think of the brother who woke up and was no longer a brother. You never think of the mother who woke up to find that one of her children is gone. You can’t imagine the hurt and heart ache the daughter feels when she finds that her father isn’t alive anymore, that her daddy wont witness the rest of her life, that her dad wont walk her down the aisle when she gets married. You can’t even begin to phantom the pain and absolute heart break the wife is feeling now that the love of her life is no more.
There are one million questions without a single answer.
Memories and pictures are all that remain. There is no chance for goodbyes.
No holiday, no birthday, no moment will ever be the same without him.
Nothing in life is worth ending your life. Nothing is too hard to get through. Nothing is too bad that someone can’t help you through your problems. No issues or problem is worth killing yourself. Talk to someone, anyone. Don’t think that suicide fixes things. IT DOESN’T! Suicide does the complete opposite of fixing things. Suicide messes everything up. No one is ever going to be the same again. No one will ever feel whole again without you. Even if you don’t feel like people love you, you are WRONG. You are important. You are beautiful. You are important. YOU MATTER. The devastation that remains when you are gone is so beyond your understanding until you go through it. Think before you act. Love yourself more than that. Love your family and friends more than that. Value who you are and what you CAN do. If things aren’t good, they will be! Think about your life. Think about how often and how much things change! It wont be bad forever.
