Sometimes life just feels really hard! I want to be sure that you know there are options if you’re feeling desperate.
There’s a National 24 hour Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-8255. Help is there no matter what time of day or night you might need it. You can also call 911 to have local emergency help. If you’re able to drive safely, you can go to your nearest Emergency Room at your local hospital. You can also reach out to friends or family to come and be with you.
The important thing is that you reach out for help! There’s help available, but we need to know that you’re in need. Don’t allow the part of you that is in such distress to take a self-destructive step that could either end your life, or possibly complicate it even further than it already is.
Self-harm is not the answer! Your suffering can ease tremendously if you get some emotional and psychological help. Don’t let temporary pain — no matter how deeply profound it feels — alter your life permanently. Let someone know that you’re suffering.
Suicide is never the answer!
Until next time,
