Just Don’t Do It.
There is no telling why.
The reason, if any given, will no doubt lack sufficient weight to justify the outcome.
Those left behind will forever wonder “what if”?
The truth of the matter is a large number of young people contemplate suicide, and often make the decision to carry out the act without so much as a hint to anyone.
Those of us who have lived through adolescence can no doubt empathise with the stress, confusion and at times, self loathing, that comes with the times.
But suicide is a so very permanent solution, to a so very temporary problem.
As the new saying goes “it gets better”.
Whether a challenge with sexuality, social standing, economics or family, it gets better.
I had a friend who attempted suicide, in his teens, and he survived.
He remains alive today, but his struggles only intensified as a result of the attempt.
He is happy to be alive.
Because it gets better.
Please, if you are contemplating suicide, even if you don’t think you’ll do it, call this number.
There is no shame in struggling with life, we all do, every single one of us.
At one time or another we all need to be talked down, in one way or another.
There is no shame, or weakness in asking for help.
If you were in a car accident, would you call for help?
Considering suicide is exactly the same, EXACTLY THE SAME.
