As to whether or not I have ever contemplated giving up on life, my answer is…
Emphatically no! I have never had cause to contemplate suicide. I have thought about what might drive a person to do it, but I’ve never seriously contemplated it myself. I hope I never ever do feel that way and I hope and pray nobody reading this would ever do such a thing either!
Life is far too precious, to special, to ever consider ending it.
I do know several people who have confided in me and let me know that they once thought or even tried it. All for what seemed to me to be trivial reasons. I know now that even with physical pain, what might be terribly painful for one person might not even hurt a bit for another. So I believe the same is true for emotional pain. I just tried to be the best friend, the best listener possible and I thank God everyone is still around today. Not that I’m taking any of the credit but I am happy nobody ended their life that confided their intentions to me.
