Suicide Prevention Can Help You Think More Clearly!
Suicide is a serious thing. And if you know anyone who is suicidal, you need to get them help. No one should be in pain. Everyone should love themselves. ~ Gerard Way
Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.
When I was a junior in high school, I had thoughts of suicide. It was a very hard time in my life. I did not want to die, but I lost the desire to keep on living and was struggling with the pressures of school and the death of a very close friend, not to mention that I was using marijuana and alcohol and other drugs more and more to escape reality.
Contacting someone from suicide prevention would have been a wise thing to do but I was unaware of it, so instead of dealing with my thoughts and feelings on my own, I self-medicated myself with marijuana, alcohol, and other harmful substances.
I remember not wanting to go shopping for clothes in high school because I did not want to waste my parents’ money since I emotionally was ready to check out for good. It was very fortunate that I got medical help in a hospital and support from my family – mostly my mom – who did everything she could do to help me, and make things the best she could for me. Thankfully I have been able to help by repaying her by taking care of her in her old age, similar to how she took care of me in some ways.

Pastor Rick Warren Thoughts Will Be Helpful to You!
Continued – I was what you would call, superficially involved with a church at St. Gregory’s the Great when I was in grade school, but even so, I knew that God was there for me. Though life was somewhat difficult, it was also scary and drained me emotionally and physically. I did not wish to be necessarily dead, but I could not deal with life the way it was, because of all that was going on. These feelings came to a head when my best friend Steve Mader died at age 17 when I was 16 years old.
Thank God that I pulled through – it was worth all the effort it took. The same results can happen for you or someone you know, as long as you get the help you need like I did. Life can be very painful, and problems can seem to be overwhelming at times, but I have learned that God has a plan for each and every one of us. Sometimes it takes some extra effort and faith to get to where you want and need to be. I would strongly suggest calling 1-800-273-8255 to at least talk to someone who cares and can help you sort through your problems.
