Suicide can be an uncomfortable topic to discuss, nonetheless a topic that needs to be discussed. As I typed this post, I must admit I felt a little uncomfortable writing about such a dark topic. However, I can only hope that this post helps someone who is having a difficult time coping with life. A person who is feeling suicidal may feel that no one will understand, they will face judgment, or any other negative feelings that are typically associated with suicide. As a person who has dealt/deals with depression myself, I know how important it is to recognize my feelings of sadness when I'm going through something. It's so important to deal with your feelings, and talk with someone etc. so you don't sink deeper into depression. Depression varies from person to person, but doesn't mean all people who deal with depression will try to commit suicide or even think about suicide.
I think one of the interesting things about life is that everyone has a story. Behind some of those stories are people that may be dealing with issues that their families, friends, etc. are unaware of. This is one reason why I try to show the people in my life that I care and that I love them because as much as we think we know someone, you may not know their full story and things they are dealing with. If you know someone who is suicidal try to be there, show compassion, and not judge the person.
I have a B.A. in Psychology, but I'm not a health professional. I found a link about suicide, suicide prevention, etc.
Remember, if you're feeling suicidal, there is hope. Life may have difficulties, but nothing unpleasant last forever. You can feel happy again.
