10 years ago I felt Suicidal, Overwhelmed and Depressed.
I remember the day clearly, I was cutting the grass with a pair of wellies on and I thought will I just find a way to end this awful pain?!
I was a single Mum, recently divorced, the kids were 7 and 9 years old and my X Husband declared he got a job opportunity in the West Coast of the US and was moving there. I had just thought that I could get my life back on track a little bit more, I had made plans to join a hiking club, to meet some likeminded people, to go places and focus more on my career but alas that dream was shattered and once again I held the responsibility to care, mind and parent my kids on my own which was a daunting and exhausting task.
You see I already had a glimpse or taste of having some free time every second weekend and for it to be taken from me again I felt I had taken one step forward and 5 steps back!
What did I do? I sought help! I got counselling support and other supports that helped me through those times. What I have always found is getting professional help is the best course of action when I feel that down or life slipping away or my mindset is not in a good place.
Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
Look at what I would have missed if I carried through on those thoughts:
❤️My beautiful kids growing up and my life with them.
💥My life now as I know it, fun, full of life and finding happiness.
❤️My Mum, brothers and sisters and close friends.
🌻My own journey that has taken my on a path of personal development and growth that has been transformational.
❤️My wonderful partner who is my gorgeous handsome man that I love with all my heart.
If you know of anyone who feels suicidal or if you feel this way yourself then PLEASE get help, it is there and DON’T FORGET Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.
Live, Laugh, Love.
Prosper In Your Life. 💙 🌈
