Suicidal intentions are prompted by a desperate need for relief from intensely painful feelings. Surviving suicidal thoughts is about learning how to find relief without resorting to suicide. Simply having suicidal thoughts does not mean you will act on them. However, the habit of repeatedly thinking about suicide is a risky one. Though it may be difficult, hold on to the belief that there ARE ways to resist depression and find relief.
Suicide not only affects the person who died, but also their family and friends- "Suicide Survivors" - who cared deeply about the person. The shock and grief that consumes you after you lose someone to suicide is overwhelming. Our life, as we have known it, is forever changed and we find ourselves in an unexpected struggle, first just to survive and then to move forward. We hope that you will find practitioners and articles here on Begin to Heal to help you deal with, and eventually heal from, what may well be the worst pain you will ever feel.
