Suicide is an unfortunate reality that many people may have a connection with either because they have faced suicidal thoughts or they know someone who has attempted to take their life. People with suicidal thoughts (the idea of killing themselves) typically feel like suicide is the only choice. Those individuals might feel desperation, an overwhelming, constant emotional pain, and a belief that their life has no worth.
It is a difficult reality to face and it can be due to a multitude of factors ranging from genetic to environmental factors. Suicide claims more lives than homicide and war every year.
A reminder that you are never alone and if you are experiencing suicidal ideation we encourage you to seek help immediately.
