What are you struggling with?


Depression

It sounds like you might be experiencing some really significant depressive thoughts, that are causing you to search how to kill yourself. Living with depressing thoughts can be so difficult and draining. It can feel like there is a dark cloud over you, sucking away any positivity you could feel. I am so sorry you are going through this. Being in such a dark place makes it almost impossible to see any light through that cloud.

There is light out there though, you have felt it before and you can absolutely feel it again. What you are feeling may be overwhelming but it is not permanent.

There are people who want walk with you in the journey to find that light. They want nothing more than to join you where you are and listen to your story. A great place to turn is a local counselling agency or pastor.

Finances

When you find yourself in such significant financial debt that you can’t see a way out it becomes hard to think about anything else. The thought of that debt becomes so overwhelming that it puts blinders to everything else in your life, making it feel like there is no escape. The walls of bills and debts can get you into a canyon of despair and hopelessness. While that canyon may be deep and narrow there is still an opening above you that you are capable of reaching.

You can get out. You are not alone.

There are people who want to walk alongside you and help you find the path that is going to get you out of that canyon. You are so much more than your finances and you can bring yourself out of the canyon they have you in. Many agencies have financial coaches and counselors who are specifically trained to help you out of both the debt and the despair.

Relationship problems

Being in a relationship that is unhealthy or the ending of a relationship can put you down into a place where it is really hard to know where to turn. It can be hard to imagine how to get away or how to move on. It can make you feel like you are trapped in a room where the lights are off and there is no way to find the door. This is such a scary place to be, especially when you feel like you are alone.

Woman window

There are two very important things to know; the room does have a door and it takes only the faintest spark to be able to see enough to find it. There are people who want to help you see in that dark room and guide you towards the way out.

That door opening could be escaping the abuse or just moving on from the ending of the relationship, but no matter what the door looks like for you, you can get to it. Those people to help you find the door can take many shapes, it could be a trusted friend, a family member, a pastor, or a counselor.

Loneliness

When you feel so alone that you can’t even imagine anyone ever being close to you or connecting with you, it can feel like you are on a raft in the middle of an empty ocean. That raft can feel like it is just drifting in the waves getting beaten down by the unrelenting sun of stress and anxiety. All you can see from your raft is water and more water.

Though it is hard to see them from beyond the horizon, there are people searching for you.

The ocean is a big place and the searchers just need some indication of how to find you. It might feel like you have been putting up signals for a long time now but try one more time. There are people who truly want to help bring you back to shore.. Pastors or counselors are wanting to help and want to find you, give them one more chance.

Bullying

Being picked on or bullied, whether it is one time or constantly, whether it’s in person or online, can make you feel like people have trapped you in a punching bag. You feel unable to move away from the people attacking you as they hit you with painful emotional hit after painful emotional hit. The material of the bag is holding you in but it feels like your spirit is getting close to breaking, like you can’t take any more hits. The pain is getting close to unbearable. I am so sorry you are being put through this.

feet forward

I want you to know you are not a punching bag, and those people have no right or justification for what they are doing. I want to invite you to escape from the bag.

There are people who are around you who really want to work with you to stop you from feeling trapped in that punching bag. The people attacking you are wrong, you are valuable, you are loved, and you are special. You are a valuable gift to the world. Connecting with a mentor, pastor, or counselor can help you feel value and healing in your life.
