As i find out what today is I have to wonder if today was placed directly before 9/11 for a reason. So many lost so much on that horrible day. As someone who lost my mother to suicide one day when I was 15, I know all too well how one day can change your whole life forever.
This is such a horribly heartbreaking situation that most don’t know how to talk about it, but not talking about it brings devisating consciousness. Yes the act in done in a moment but the sickness before hand is often seen for years before someone actually passes from suicide.
Signs that someone may be suicidal:
severe mood swings.
sleeping a lot/not sleeping much.
talking about suicide.
making plans for their death.
giving stuff away.
changes in physical behavior.
if you see these signs in someone you know please don’t “sweep it under the rug.” I know people sometimes shy away from situations they don’t understand. Or from situations they know are inconvenient. If you know someone that might be suicidal and can’t help personally please pass the information off to someone who might be able to help.
Please always remember that people who have lost other’s to suicide or who have faced a severe trauma are more likely to die from the disease.
Paul says in Ephesians 6:12:
“For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”
I believe that suicide is a demonic spirit that can be passed down through generations. We need to realize what we were dealing with when trying to help fight this force away.
I know from experience that finding a true relationship with Jesus Christ, meaningful and lasting relationships, and a purpose for one’s life can help make all the difference.
If you or a loved one needs help you can reach out to the National Lifeline prevention hotline, to a local church or you can always message me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I will be happy to help myself.
God bless you all! Let’s wrap our arms around our brothers and sisters that are hurting and not just for one day.
