I created this website to help anyone feeling lost, overwhelmed, confused, hurt, ashamed, alone, heartbroken, or scared. And for the many soldiers feeling nobody understands their pain or is willing to listen.
When I battled through life's struggles I wrapped my emotions around faith, which gave me a sense of peace and purpose. Doing so allowed me to reflect on the heavy emotions I was feeling. I have never attempted to take my own life, but many times I felt so alone and lost that I struggled with the thoughts of an easy way out. While feeling suicidal you are in a state of mind no one cares about you, understands you, or even cares enough to listen to you. Sometimes nothing anyone can say will help heal your personal pain. But being able to talk about your problems with someone that will listen and have understanding, can make a difference.
Anyone having suicidal thoughts should express them to someone they can trust and are able to open up to without judgment. Just having someone there for you, even if in their silence, is important when struggling with your thoughts. If you experience a mental struggle, try any of these methods for calming your thoughts: Pray, make an attempt to talk with a friend or family member, listen to music that sooths your thoughts, or physically go to a place you can relate to on a personal level giving you a sense of peace. These are just some of the ways you can help overcome your thoughts and even save your life.
If you are struggling at this moment to regain self control and need someone to talk to, contact the National Crisis Line at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
