(2011 CDC WISQARS)
My mother committed suicide when I was 16. Obviouslly, this impacted my life tremendously.
The foundation of suicide is a sense of despair and deep hoplesness; a feeling of "it will never get better".
There are many building blocks on top of that sense of despair: low self esteem, self-hatred, depression, etc.
Sometimes, people commit an act of spontaneous suicide ending their life quickly and sometimes they commit slow suicide each day over the period of many years by repeated bad choices.
My prayer is that no matter how bad you may see your life TODAY, that you would find HOPE for tomorrow and start a new life!
