Suicidal thoughts are not uncommon, but they are often suppressed and very rarely spoken about.
“Did you know that it is very common for people to have suicidal thoughts at some stage in their lives. It doesn't mean they're crazy, flawed or weak. It means they're human and struggling with more emotional pain than they can handle. While it might seem overwhelming right now, with support it is possible to overcome pain and the suicidal thoughts and feelings can even become a distant memory.”
This is something that rings as deeply true for me! I am not an expert in this topic, but I have lived very real moments of this level of thinking…
I remember experiencing this cycle of thinking in my own life only a few years ago, and I am now at the place where I am able to acknowledge the thoughts that occured and look back at them with a deeper understanding of what was actually happening. The biggest gift in this process was the fact that I was able to notice the thinking and “catch” myself experiencing certain thoughts that did not align with my highest-self.
The thoughts were subtle. They were almost silent in the way that they presented themselves in my mind, and they moved as if they were going to go unnoticed.
I recall the shock and surprise that I felt when I realised these thoughts happening!
In a split second this awareness set me in motion on a powerful journey of self-discovery, with the support of my own coaches and guides, that allowed me to begin doing the work and fall in love with all of life again!
