Maybe I shouldn’t say this, but sometimes when I’m down and life gets too hard, it helps me to say aloud, with no one around, that I want to die. How can this help? It does, and a lot.
Saying and acknowledging this feeling, this wanting to die, is like choosing to live. I let it out and somehow, the feeling subsides. I don’t ignore it, I accept it and let it go.
Suffering is a part of life and being human. And while it could be worse, pain is pain and when you are feeling it, you just don’t compare your situation to others because you can’t measure pain.
We break, repair and recover. Sometimes it just takes longer for some. Be patient, feelings pass as long as we’re aware that life is not always nicely paved but a bumpy road.
