A MESSAGE TO THOSE WANTING TO END THEIR LIFE- You Are Strong and Powerful

“…there is something you must always remember. You are braver than you believe, stronger then you seem, and smarter than you think.” – Christopher Robin

I felt a very strong urge to write this post, I’m not even sure why. I was a little hesitant at first, but I had something that appeared on my “memories to look back on”  on my facebook, and I just knew I had to write this post. Maybe there is someone out there that needs to read this. And if that someone is reading this, I am praying for you.

What trigged me to initially write this blog was a story about a young girl named Katie Stubblefield, who received a second chance at life. A second chance at life is an extraordinary gift that many do not receive.

She is a suicide survivor and her story is miraculous. It is sad. It is heartbreaking. It is hopeful.

…….that girl is going to and is changing so many lives. I wish her and her family the best in all that they do.


When someone chooses to take their own life it raises many questions and many fingers are pointed due to the horrible and tragic event.

It’s heartbreaking.

We don’t know how to react, we don’t know what we can do…… we begin to ask what are the signs to look for, how can we help these people in our lives that may be hurting…… what if this…what if that…..

Those that are suicidal I can imagine are scared, feeling lonely, numb, confused, feeling unworthy to be present and living…

YOU ARE NEVER ALONE IN THE WAY THAT YOU FEEL

This post is directed to anyone who has had or is having suicidal thoughts. I have faith that this message will find who it needs to find. 

I hope this message comes across as genuine and trusting. I know you can overcome this.

These are things I would like to remind you of….

YOU ARE LOVED SO MUCH

You are loved so much. You really are. You are loved so much. I want to emphasize that as much as I can because it is true.

There are so many people that care and love you. Sometimes, it may not feel like you are loved. But you are. We all display love differently and the signals can be hard to interpret. However, the love is there. There are people in your life that want to see you succeed, they want to see be happy, they want to see you smile, they want to see you enjoy all that life has to offer. You are someone’s world whether you choose to believe that or not, you are. They live and do all the things they do because of you. Your existence gives life to those around you. You hold such value, that is why you are here to begin with. You are loved.

Love yourself.

Please love yourself and recognize how much life you have in you. You are loved so much. Believe that because it is true.

THIS PAIN WILL NOT LAST FOREVER

It hurts. It hurts so bad. I know you are in pain and it hurts. I don’t know exactly how you feel and those around you might not know exactly how you feel either. But I can tell you, it may seem like you will never escape this pain you’re in, but you will.

On the other side of your struggles there are great things that await you. This is apart of your journey, you have the strength to push past this.

You have to push past this. There are people that need you, that count on you, that love you, that can’t imagine a life without you. You are strong. There are others who have experienced what you are going through and they conquered THIS…..and they didn’t think they ever could. You will get through this too. Please believe that you will get through it.

Acknowledge it, face it, and conquer it. You are stronger then this pain you feel. You are powerful.

HELP IS AVAILABLE

This battle does not need to be handled by yourself. Do not be afraid to reach out for help. Please reach out. There are so many people that want to lend a helping hand. There are so many resources that offer help and assistance. Those that may have been in a similar situation can provide advice and guidance. Hear them out.

Remember, you are not alone.

The help you need is right there. Do not face this demon by yourself. Reach out to your family, close friends, a support group, a stranger even! Tell someone what you are going through and you will look back, and be so thankful you reached out. Don’t go through this alone, ask for help.

YOU HAVE A PURPOSE

Your existence is a miracle. I will say that again, the fact that you are present in this life, right now……is a miracle. You are a miracle! Your life is a miracle!

You are something so special and so unique. You are a gift to this world and the world needs you.

You make a difference, you have a purpose, there is value in your life. You have been given life and opportunities. Someone looks up to you, someone admires you, someone is wanting your life that you are living. Cherish this life that you have. People are praying to be where you are. Be grateful and recognize this beautiful gift that you have been given.

There is more waiting for you. Have faith and believe in yourself.
