Series: “The Self and Suicide”
Are You Suicidal?
The progression of suicidal tendencies varies.
When we’re going through a hard time, passing thoughts like, “I can’t take this anymore!” or extreme thoughts like, “I wish I were dead!” may have popped into our heads, once or twice. For those who are fairly content with life, these ideas are fleeting, declared in a moment of intense emotion.
What’s tricky is when we start to contemplate their validity…that’s when the warning signs pop up!
At this point, we must take note…
If you feel things are becoming too difficult, speak up! If you see someone is struggling, reach out! The longer we fester within the filth of our anguish, the more likely we are to put ourselves in harm’s way.
