Suicide

I wanted to post this in light of Robin Williams’ suicide yesterday.

I was just sent this by the To Write Love On Her Arms website…Please, if you’re thinking of doing something drastic, something irreversible, reach out to someone for help. Life is too precious to throw away by suicide. It’s a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Reach out to friends, family, counselors or the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-8255.

 There is Still Some Time.
 by Jamie Tworkowski

 If you feel too much, there’s still a place for you here.

 If you feel too much, don’t go.

 If this world is too painful, stop and rest.

 It’s okay to stop and rest.

 If you need a break, it’s okay to say you need a break.

 This life – it’s not a contest, not a race, not a performance, not a thing that you win.

 It’s okay to slow down.

 You are here for more than grades, more than a job, more than a promotion, more than keeping up, more than getting by.

 This life is not about status or opinion or appearance.

 You don’t have to fake it.

 You do not have to fake it.

 Other people feel this way too.

 If your heart is broken, it’s okay to say your heart is broken.

 If you feel stuck, it’s okay to say you feel stuck.

 If you can’t let go, it’s okay to say you can’t let go.

 You are not alone in these places.

 Other people feel how you feel.

 You are more than just your pain. You are more than wounds, more than drugs, more than death and silence.

 There is still some time to be surprised.

 There is still some time to ask for help.

 There is still some time to start again.

 There is still some time for love to find you.

 It’s not too late.

 You’re not alone.

 It’s okay – whatever you need and however long it takes – it’s okay.

 It’s okay.

 If you feel too much, there’s still a place for you here.

 If you feel too much, don’t go.

 There is still some time.
