God I wished I never watched Corronation Street that was awful, one emotional episode. The facts are that so many people fight stuff on the inside but on the outside everything seems fine.
Anyone battling with issues, pain, illness, depression to get that far to have to take ones life I myself can really resonate with. Only 5 months ago I came so close, with all the pain I was suffering words will never express how I was feeling. It would of been so easy to end it all, to end the pain i felt and suffering I was going through. I was at my lowest point in my life. I’ve been battling depression on and off for 24 years, I’ve battled with my hearing to then get permanent tinnitus where I don’t know what silence even feels like, I’ve battled with back issues and on top I have neck pain from an injury I had at work which affected everything. I’m not asking for sympathy or people’s pity but some people may not be that strong and not have the support network I have in my life and that I am truly blessed and grateful for.
Suicide on all accounts It’s the wrong way of doing things, some say it’s gutless, some say it’s selfish to me it’s a cry for help that went too far. I would never do anything like that intentionally as I have a family and people who love me but some dont have that support network. I think if i never had that and with the medication i was on at the time and the amount I was taking played with my head and I believe if I never had the support from my family and friends I don’t think I would be here writing this blog post and that’s the truth. Then doterra came in my life and that’s taken my life in a new direction.
I urge people to stop and think, sometimes picking up a phone, asking someone if they are ok can make a world of difference to someone who’s not strong enough to tell you how or what they are feeling.
Do one thing this week reach out to one person and ask how they are. When you see ones behaviour on the outside could be entirely different how they feel on the inside. That phone call, smile or visit could really make someone’s day.
