#Suicidal Thoughts

There comes a time in our lives when we feel really at the edge,want to give up all struggle and slip into eternal oblivion.We are consumed by the now woes,cannot find a way out,and have no hope of a better future.At such times,instead of throwing in the towel,it would help if we gave a thought to the following thoughts:--

1) I am stronger than any calamity.
2) I shall find a way out of this problem.
3) Every problem has a solution,let me look for mine.
4) Life is larger than any misfortune because it is a mixed platter of    
     good & bad.
5) I beat despondency in the past,i shall do it again today.
6) If times are bad today,they could improve tomorrow or the day 
    after.
7) I shall concentrate on living one day at a time.
8) I have to live this day through.
9) This too,shall pass.
10)Most of the problems get resolved with the passage of time.
11) Only if i live,can i see happier days.

Now for some true life stories where people as disgusted with life as anyone,lived on to find happiness.Please give this a good read,then decide.One sobering thought-sometimes suicide attempts misfire horribly;don't do this to yourself.

  2. Indu, very useful post. Though not suicidal thought, sometimes everyone feels alone and can't struggle anymore. Thoughts you have written are very useful in that case.

    A very well written and helpful post. I have been in such situations lot of time in the past and each of them you have mentioned above had come to my mind. And that prevented me to take any action. Nowadays I don't get any thoughts where I wanna do suicide.

  9. Nice inspiring read.Many of us think that life is only a bed of roses. So, when we are in the eye of a storm, we always succumb to it dictates and we never try to take it by its horn.

  12. Agree with all that you have said Indu ji

    and yes "this too shall pass"---is the mantra

    but personally when I was a kid and get bad marks in maths I would contemplate suicide but refrained ----for the fear of being left maimed if death played truant ---because I always thought of jumping from the terrace HAHAHA LOL

    sorry to give such a frivolous comment on such a serious post Indu ji ---but remembered my child hood suddenly---bachpan ki yadein

    1. Really Rajni?How innocent childhood can be.And how very deeply certain issues affect them--we adults would never guess.

      I am reminded of a classmate in junior school who stood weeping because she had come third--her mom was sure to berate her.Now i realize she too might have had similar thoughts.

      But in the end,i sure am happy that you chose to live;or i would have lost a good friend!

  15. I remember a friend's words. This is just a phase. True. Every stage is a phase..it shall pass soon..for good or worse. We need to keep moving. The biggest problem could be treated as worse. There could be nothing worse than that. Great words of encouragement.

    1. Oh yes ,if we take it as a phase which will pass,we would be less stressed.
      Thank you Latha for adding this.
