It seems almost every single day there is news of someone else who didn't want to carry on and killed themselves.
It is a great tragedy not only for the deceased but for their family and friends whose worlds shatter and will never be the same from the very moment they hear about it.
Suicidal thoughts may not necessarily lead to the real act, but they will drain all the energy and life force out of the sufferer. They are usually a sign of severe or moderate depression and the sooner you get help the better.
Remember this: no matter how dark and bleak your heart feels now, you don't need to take your life, simply take it in your own hands and keep it as a great gift, and it will get better.
Because you matter too.
