Before you act, think of your family.


Recommended Posts

I recently attempted suicide. You may or may not have seen the post here which was intended to be my last.

Anyways, I was found by a neighbor who rushed me to the E.R. If it weren't for him I wouldn't be here now. My wife was beside herself when she found out what I'd tried to do. Especially considering the fact that we have a one year old son.

Before you think of taking your life, please....think of your family.

I wanted to take my life because I am suffering from situational depression and felt like an unfit husband and father. Now when i think about my poor wife and my son growing up without his daddy, I feel worse. Suicide is a big copout. Now because of my actions my wife is constantly fearing for my safety now. It will take a long time for her to trust me again. When I look at my son I now just want to cry because I feel so ashamed. This wonderful little person would have had a difficult life growing up without a dad. I would have missed out on so much. First day of school, his wedding, and when he himself becomes a dad.

So if you are contemplating suicide please think of the ones you love and the pain you will go through.


No matter how difficult things get, always keep in mind that darkness doesn't last forever. And always remember the most important thing of all: You are loved.
