This week I learned the spouse of my friend wanted to end their life.
The spouse took 30 sleeping pills.
Luckily my friend found their spouse and got them to the hospital.
Thank goodness they lived.
But we don’t yet know if there will be long terms effects.
I also learned this week another acquaintance mixed mood-elevating meds with alcohol.
Both people in these incidents were struggling with personal issues.
It breaks my heart because:
- I know I could help them.
- I know there are many professionals that could help them.
- They have been offered help and have refused.
So often struggles with:
- Failed relationships
- Failed businesses or employment
- Abusive relationships
Causes the person struggling to isolate themselves.
The shame is too much.
The need to look good is too much.
It is easy to hide behind phrases like:
- I just had a bad day.
- People are judging me.
- No one understands. They haven’t walked in my shoes.
I get it, really I do.
In the past, I too have struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts.
I didn’t even want my family to know.
I tried so hard to hold it all together.
To look good.
To keep going.
But in the end, it didn’t work.
It never does, not for anybody.
Eventually, your unresolved struggles will consume you.
So please stop trying to go it alone.
No one, not me, not anyone, will judge you for:
- Admitting your problem and
- Getting help.
Please I beg you,
I can help you.
But it doesn’t have to be me.
Find a professional you trust and get help.
No one should go it alone.
