Many Believe that only experts or professionals can prevent suicide. Well, Suicide prevention is everybody’s business, and anyone can help prevent the tragedy of suicide.
4 Myths About Suicide:
A lot of myths surround suicide and depression. Often, people believe they are helpless to a person who is suicidal, or that talking about it may push the person in the wrong direction. These myths are not true. Educate yourself about these myths and share the truths with others. You may help save a life.
Myth 1: Those who talk about suicide don’t do it.
The Lie – Most of the people who either attempted or completed suicide have made their intentions known ahead of time by either talking about it or by giving other clues. Talk of suicide should not be ignored or readily dismissed.
Myth 2: If a person is really intent on killing themselves, there is nothing anybody can do to stop them.
The Lie – Even the most severely depressed person has mixed feelings about dying and most likely just wants to end the pain they are in, not their lives. Often times if a person in crisis gets the help they need, they will never be suicidal again. Suicide can be prevented in most cases and any act of kindness has the potential to save a life.
Myth 3: If you talk about suicide, you give people the idea to kill themselves.
The Lie – Chances are if you’re thinking about suicide, they’ve already thought it too. Asking somebody directly about suicidal thoughts often brings a sense of relief to the suicidal person and helps them to live, not give them ideas to die.
Myth 4: Only experts or professionals can prevent suicide.
The Lie – Suicide prevention is everybody’
You are in charge of your own life, You set the standard. If you do not like where you are right now, you have the ability to change it.
You always reflect the hard work or lack of hard work that you put in…. it is time to rise up. Commit to yourself to being better today than you were yesterday. Do what it takes and than means taking the higher road which is often tougher. You set your standards, do not conform to the standards like a sheep..
You can lead the way, get out and do it
You are not who people say you are… You are who God says you are:
You Are Valuable
You Are A Masterpiece
You Are an Original
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago… Ephesians 2:10
Today is the day to stop thinking about what could have been and focus on what will be. We cannot change the past, but we can alter our future. If you want success in life, then reach for it, do not reach for excuses. If you want Happiness, then be Happy, you control that emotion, nobody else does. You cannot rely on other people for your own happiness.
If we did, seldom would we smile. Remember, everyday we do not follow our dreams, we wake up to the same harsh reality. Nothing has changed. Not because we don’t want it, because we don’t want it enough to go after it and do everything we can to make it happen! Sometimes it takes Blood, Sweat and Tears, but know it will be worth every drop!
There is no defeat in an honest effort, but there is no victory without it either! Philippians 4:13
Try Hard! Pray Harder!
