Suicide: Never an Option!

tumblr_n4nelyqZEE1tn1p2io1_500I have talked with several suicidal people who have said something like this:

“If things don’t work out I can always kill myself. I always have that option.” Suicide is not an option. And the type of mindset that accompanies this type of statement needs to be changed immediately. People who make that type of statement would never say: “If so-and-so doesn’t shape up, I’ll just kill him. I always have that option.” Sounds ridiculous doesn’t it? So, why is it so easy for some people to believe that taking their own life is okay? That suicide is an option? Because of a mental disorder–People with depression, or a similar disorder, cannot think straight because they have a chemical imbalance in their brain.

And almost everyone who is suicidal has a mental disorder. So it is critical that people get treatment so their thinking will change. If you need help because you have a similar mindset, then get help now. Do not delay. Take a step back and analyze your thinking. What is really going on in your mind? What kind of self-talk do you engage in? Do you say to yourself: “Suicide is always an option”? or “I can always kill myself if I need to”? or “If things don’t get better, I’ll kill myself”? If your thinking is even close to that, then please get help. Call 1-800-SUICUDE now if you need to. The sooner you get help, the better.

Be honest with yourself. If you need help, get it. And get it now. And remember that suicide is never, under any circumstances, an option.
