Is It Really Worth Taking My Life?
Posted by Trained Parrott on 22:04 in Depression | Comments : 0
Happy Mothers day to our beautiful mamas out there.
In light of the suicides and attempted suicides happening in the country, i want to assure us all that All Is Well. No matter how hard you think your situation is, have it in mind that someone is going through worse.
I know that the situation of the country is enough to make one depressed,i know that you feel that all hope it lost, it feels like the world is crumbling at your feet..Suicide isn't the best way to end it, I promise you that a worse fate than death awaits you in hell.
I'm not trying to be harsh or pretend that at one point in life i haven't thought to just end it all, we all have our moments but then you think of the things that make you sad and you ask yourself "Is It Really Worth Taking My Life?", is it really worth an eternity of torture?
According to Wikipedia, people with a depressed mood can feel sad, anxious, empty, hopeless, helpless, worthless, guilty, irritable, angry,ashamed, or restless. They may lose interest in activities that were once pleasurable, experience loss of appetite or overeating, have problems concentrating, remembering details or making decisions, experience relationship difficulties and may contemplate, attempt or commit suicide. Do these symptoms sound familiar? I know you are probably rolling your eyes at me but we have all been there.
Some people are lucky enough to overcome their depression by seeking help while others are not so lucky as they take their own life. When you feel this way,how should you handle it?
Seeking God is the first and most important way to heal, talk to Him because He listens.
I personally don't buy the idea of going for counseling because I feel they exploit us and make us feel that they are helping...I'd rather talk to a friend. But different folks with different strokes, counseling might save another person's life so please visit a counselor today.
Set Goals.When you're depressed, you may feel like you can't accomplish anything. That makes you feel worse about yourself. To push back, set daily goals for yourself.
Take on responsibilities. When you’re depressed, you may want to pull back from life and give up your responsibilities at home and at work. Don't. Staying involved and having daily responsibilities can help you maintain a lifestyle that can help counter depression. They ground you and give you a sense of accomplishment.
Challenge negative thoughts. In your fight against depression, a lot of the work is mental -- changing how you think. When you're depressed, you leap to the worst possible conclusions.
I hope my article has been helpful.
Stay healthy and stay blessed.
