Have you ever encountered people whose life is so stressed that they actually contemplated killing themselves? I have on several occasions. With each time I tell them the main objective should just be to make it through this day and go to bed early. There is a reason for this. Sometimes after a really bad day cooler heads can prevail. Yes, things might seem bad today, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it will feel this bad tomorrow. Also, by tomorrow your perspective on your problems could change, thus enabling you to view them differently. Lots of people deal with stress so bad that they ‘consider’ suicide. You may have thought about it once or twice yourself. Normally when things go bad every negative thing seems to pile up on you at once. It is very difficult to make sense of anything when you are right in the middle of it all. I just recently saw a video of an ex-serviceman whose life was so bad that he claimed he was going to kill himself. He said this to Bernie Sanders. Here is the article/clip.
The first thing is that most people who suffer from a bad existence don’t realize that there are others out there who would gladly trade places with them. Some people cannot walk. Some people don’t have a home. Some people cannot even speak. If you are able to move, talk, or express yourself in any form then there is ‘hope.’ You may not be able to see it now. There are many success stories of people who once considered taking their lives. We all can learn from them. Everyone experiences the good along with the bad. While we all prefer the good times we need to feel secure enough to survive the bad as well. Keep your composure. It won’t always be like this. If possible, seek out someone who can help you. Political people want to show that you can trust in them, and it will make them look favorable in the eyes of the public if they accomplish this. There is nothing wrong in seeking help. Sometimes we all need it. Thank you for checking out my Daily Thought, and as always I wish you the very best that life has to offer.
