I’m not gonna lie, I’ve tried it before…over a year ago…but still. It can take a lot to push someone to the point where they feel like its the only way out. I have gone through this feeling myself…but so have 3 of my closest friends…you tend to get a very hopeless feeling when you find out that one of your friends has attempted suicide. One of the scariest times I can think of is when my little brother thought about over dosing on his meds…I watched him every time he took that shot just to make sure he’d still be alive.
The weird thing about this is that those friends (and myself) that have attempted this have become stronger than ever. Its not fun to fall that far down…but it takes a hell of a lot of strength to return from that depth and stay away from it. I know that I’m stronger then I was back then and so are they. I’m just glad to know that depression got replaced with strength
