“You are at the end of your rope, and you can’t take it any much longer. You are in pain, and you are suffering, and you feel there is no hope. The first thing that you need to do is to seek the services of a professional counsellor”.
Suicide, the action of killing oneself intentionally. Synonyms of suicide, self-destruction, self-murder and self-slaughter. Imagine this. Having a best friend since the year 2004, who is so unhappy with their life. They felt as though they couldn't continue. Imagine this. Receiving a phone call from your best friends mother saying that your best friend has been admitted into hospital from an overdose on multiple prescription medications. Imagine this. The feelings and thoughts running through your head as you run down to your car and speed towards the hospital only to get there and not be allowed in because you aren't immediate family.
Roughly 3 years ago I was in this situation. I had no idea that my best friend hated herself as a person, was being bullied so badly to the point that she felt as though that her life wasn't worth living anymore. She buried her sadness inside herself and talked to her notepad instead of a human. I found this notepad. I read this notepad. I flipped through the pages with violent words screaming at me. Sexual assault, drugs, alcohol, bullying, domestic violence. I now knew why she tried to leave this world, but she was yet to experience the radiant and joyful life that she had helped me experience.
