I created this website for those that feel lost, overwhelmed, confused, hurt, ashamed, alone, heartbroken, scared, and also for those seeking the resources and tools to help anyone in need that suffers with suicidal thoughts. And to the many soldiers that are home from war and feel nobody understands their personal emotional pain.
When I battled through life's struggles and wanted the help of no one, I wrapped my emotions around music that gave me a sense of peace and purpose. Doing so allowed me to reflect on the heavy emotions I was feeling. I have never attempted to take my own life, but many times I felt so alone and lost that I struggled with the thoughts of an easy way out. When feeling suicidal you are in a state of mind that no one cares about you, understands you, or even cares enough to listen to you. Sometimes nothing anyone can say will help heal your personal pain. But being able to talk about your problems with someone that will listen and have understanding, can make a difference. Anyone having suicidal thoughts should express them to someone they can trust and are able to open up to without judgment. Just having someone there for you, even if in their silence, is important when struggling with your thoughts. When you begin to experience a mental struggle, try these few methods of calming your thoughts: Make an attempt to talk with a friend or family member, listen to music that comforts your thoughts, or even go to a place physically that you can relate to on a personal level that gives you a sense of peace. Escaping to that personal place physically or mentally can overcome your thoughts and even save your life.
If you are struggling at this moment to regain self control and need someone to talk to, contact the National Crisis Line at 1-800-273-TALK (8255). You are not alone.
