FEELING SUICIDAL?








If you are feeling suicidal …

 

Although this page is not directly concerned with energy psychology, I have written a few lines to give hope, or pause for further reflection, to those who may feel in the depths of despair – particularly during the night when many may search online.

 

I know, from my own experience, how it is to feel suicidal – to feel that it is unbearable to continue with life – when each minute of life feels like an agony – when all hope is gone – and trust and love are shattered.

 

In this state of mind, you may feel that ending your life is the obvious and only solution to the anguish that you feel. This is because, in a state of severe depression and despair, a person’s consciousness becomes narrowed. There is no thought of other possibilities. The consequences for others are not considered. It is a state of mental illness – driven by emotional pain - but the person in this state may not realise he or she is ill.

 

Here are some of the reasons you may become suicidal:

 

One common feature of the severely depressed and suicidal state of mind is a feeling that previous states of feeling well were delusional – and that the depressed and despairing state is the reality. This can feel true but it is not true.

 

For almost everyone who feels suicidal (and does not actually die), this is a temporary, albeit very dangerous, state. Given time – sometimes even just a short time – you will feel better. A small event – such as a kind gesture from a stranger – may suddenly shift your mood in a more positive direction.

 

Here are some points that may help:
