When you are in the middle of a negative thought stream, everything seems so dark and hopeless.
However, do you know that you can change how you feel instantly by switching to another thought?
Why Taking Your Own Life May Never Be the Solution to the Problem?
A very depressed and suicidal person may be tempted to think that by committing suicide, all their problems will be solved. Based on that belief, they choose to end their life. However, is that belief even true? What if it’s not true? Your life-and-death decision is based on a belief that hasn’t been proven to be true or not. If it’s not, you can’t be revived.
Death may seem like an escape to all the problems you have, because right now, right here, in this human form, you perceive death as something that will make you invisible. Because most dead people can’t go back to tell their story (actually I haven’t heard of anyone who was able to go back at all), living people assume that once they are dead, everything ends. However, what if death is only a transition to another state? In that state, you are invisible to the physical world, but you can see them? Will it make a difference in your decision to kill yourself?
What if whatever you think will help you escape the world, is actually only an illusion? Your death will be for nothing. Worse yet, you will be stuck in that ethereal form, with the emotional mess that you are currently in, and unable to do anything. You’ll see the people you love suffer from your death. You want to hug them, offer them consolation but feel helpless because you can’t. Is that feeling better than what you are experiencing right now? At least while you are alive, you can make changes to the situation, whether for better or for worse. And remember, if you believe you have it rock bottom, there is little chance that what lies ahead will be worse than what is right now.
Remember, after a storm, everything will become very calm and the sun will reappear.
Don’t take a temporary setback and make it permanent.
No matter how hard the situation is or how bad you feel, there will always be a way out that doesn’t involve you killing yourself.
