They are hurting so badly and want nothing more than for the pain to end.
Unfortunately, they cannot imagine the pain ever going away. They cannot see the light at the end of the very dark and lonely tunnel they have found themselves traveling down. Have you ever felt this way? Often times, people consider suicide because they are unable to find any reason to make living worthwhile.

Have you ever gone through something so painful you were convinced the pain was never going to go away? Many people who contemplate suicide say something like: I just want the pain to go away. I think about suicide pretty much every second of the day.
If you are already living with suicidal ideation, it is important to remember that substance abuse only works to magnify these thoughts and behaviors. Alcohol makes depression worse, impairs thinking and judgment and increases impulsivity. There is no safety without sobriety.

Some people have suicidal thoughts because they want to escape the isolation, pain, and rejection from the environment surrounding them.
They would rather not confront it because of the fear of hurt that comes along with it. I feel that when you go through times of depression and think about committing suicide, God is there by your side.
He will not abandon you. It is only a matter of whether you reach out to Him through prayer that you will be free from these thoughts. Depression is a real illness and needs real meaningful help. To learn more about depression, please read this guest blog from our partnerCenterstone.
