Choose life. Prevent Suicide Vidya Sury

My dearest friend,

If you are at the point where you really feel it is better to die than to go on living, then you have hit bottom, and once you hit bottom, there is really no place else to go but up.

So what have you got to lose by staying for the ride back up? You have far, far more to gain by going up, and absolutely nothing to lose by taking that trip back up, to the place where your life can be happy and fulfilling.

If your life is at a place where suicide seems better than going on, think about some very important things.

Life can turn from horrible to wonderful in a very short period of time.

Your life, whether you know it today or not, has a positive impact on someone. It might be your family, your friends, your coworkers, your neighbors… There is someone that knows you in a way that you cannot see.

Suicide is permanent…there is no turning back.

The deep feelings you have today will be different tomorrow, regardless of how down you feel, you’ll have something tomorrow that can, if you let it, make you feel better.

Our problems are often so great, so real and feel so devastating that leaving life behind seems like the only answer.

But it is not an answer. It  leaves many, many questions for anyone we leave.

Please sleep.

Please cry hard, if you must, and talk to someone who loves you.

But please, also, put the idea of making a permanent end to what could be temporary problems out of your head.

Every life has purpose.

Every single life.

Please try hard to find yours before thinking about killing yourself.

No matter how bad it is right now, it can only get better – when you are down, try doing something nice for someone else.

It sounds a little lame, but it really works. Scientifically, it is called a helper’s high. It gets your mind off depressing thoughts and helps you add value to society and confidence for yourself.

Know that you are loved. Very much.

You deserve to live, and shine your light on this world.

Choose life.

With love and hugs.

Prevent Suicide.

Stop Suicide.

Everyone has a responsibility to prevent suicide.

Reach out and touch someone today.

Connect. Communicate. Care.

    My first book dealt with the topic of suicide and I did a lot of reading about it. During my research, I found a book that I suggest to anyone, even those happy with their lives and not contemplating suicide. It’s called Suicide: The Forever Decision. Even though it’s a book about suicide, it was uplifting and comforting.

    Suicide is such a big problem and I have seen it and have known people who have done this. They are in such deep, deep despair that they are not thinking of other people only of their intense sadness. The problem is that once they make the decision they appear happy no almost content so people think they are better. All they did was make the decision and they feel happy about this. One has to watch out for people who showed despair and then suddenly seem at peace, they give away things they loved, women will get their hair done and nails. It s very, very sad. You give great advice and the best is to always remind them of their family and friends and that they do matter.

    Suicide is a real problem… lots of young people commiting this… this message should be shared in social media… you should add suicide prevention helpline as well. What I feel is that… people who suicide seeing only one perspective and are tough, trust me its not easy to suicide, its a different sort of bravery and many times life feels worthless but again things change as you said. If your strong enough to suicide, your more than strong enough to fight back… and how right… someone else may see you differently, find something very nice in you… and you can do wonders… think connecting with positive people, communicating and finding peace and trying to do something different would surely help(: … My favorite rj said ‘ Life is beautiful and to be lived in a beautiful way, for that believe in youeself, believe in somebody up above and remember… never never, ever, ever give up… Good bye and god bless(:’
