I thought, I’m fine, I can handle it, until the suicidal thoughts began. I mainly felt that I needed to get away from everyone, so as not to be a burden on them, I thought that if I could go out into the wilderness somewhere, that everyone would be free from my presence and then they could all be happy. When not in a depressed state, that seems silly, but when you are depressed, it is very real.
Sometimes life seems so big and overwhelming and your not sure how you’ll ever make it through. But that’s why God gave us our loved ones, whether it’s a spouse, a family member, or a friend.
