Here at 40-sec, we are passionate about helping you live your best life possible.
There is always someone ready to listen and let you know you are going to be okay.
When a person wants to die by suicide
All they really want is to escape the pain or anxiety that is inside of them. Often times people sabotage what's most important to them because mentally, they are not okay. Alot of times a person is also unwilling to admit that they are not okay until it is almost too late. The perpetual anxiety that they may feel and are unwilling to deal with gets bigger and bigger. It grows and grows until they are on the edge, about to make a decision that will hurt themselves and others around forever.
This all happens because the sufferer feels ashamed, weak or embarrased that they are feeling this way. We need to create a culture around the sufferer letting them know it's okay that they are not okay. Let them know you love them and you'll always be there for them.
