Remember in September Post #28 – Words That May Save Your Life

Words That May Save Your Life

Please watch and listen…

The following is my synopsis of inspirational and beneficial messages, sentences, phrases, statements, truths, and words of wisdom from the video. 

“Do not go gentle into that good night.

Rage. Rage. Against the dying of the light. 

You have to save your own life. No one can save it for you. You have to do what you have to do. No matter what it is.

Whatever pain you are going through you will transcend it. It is not a matter of how. It is a matter of when. It already has happened.  You just have to walk the path.

You can stand up and fight.

Refuse to give in and refuse to let this suffering crush you with its weight.

I want you to get mad.

I am a human being.

My life has value.

Depression is not only normal, it is essential.

You need that pain, that suffering, that digging and that turmoil to get rid of all of the impurities that allow the seeds to grow to their fullest potential.

It is good for you to go through these seeds.

You evolve.

You grow.

Depression is not only normal, it is essential.

Be grateful for it. It allows you to reorder yourself at a higher level.

See it as you see winter, and winter always leads to Spring and summer again.

See it as you see nighttime. Nighttime becomes daytime again.

I am going to offer you a challenge.  I challenge you to accept your situation.

Accept yourself as you are right now.

I challenge you to get out of bed, out of your house and most importantly,

I challenge you to get out of your own head.”

I totally agree with the last thought in my synopsis, “get out of your own head.” This holds true for everyone and is of vital importance. When I finally got out of being completely absorbed in my head and realized there was a great big beautiful world I was missing out on and I could be a part of it and be a valued participant in, I finally began to recover. I had to get away from the constant thoughts of mental illness and realized that I am more than this mental illness. I had to distract myself from the constant bombardment of negativity. I was more than a mental illness and I was a good person with value and a purpose. I think it was when I finally realized this wholeheartedly that I began to live again. I began to fight to live. I began to become more than my mental illness. Every day I continue to strive to become more. We all need to become more than we are every day of our lives. Keep fighting, growing and improving…

September is Suicide Prevention Awareness Month

So, I will write and share a post every day during the month of September containing important facts, statistics and educational information about suicide and suicide prevention. The name of my campaign is called…

Remember in September.

Prevent suicide yesterday.

Today, may be too late.

Don’t let there be anymore “what if” or “if I only” yesterday statements.

Make your today never become a yesterday you will regret. 

Save lives. Talk about it. Don’t wait. Get help. Don’t let yesterday become too late.

If you have any stories or information about suicide prevention you would like me to share on my blog, please let me know. I would love to share any information you have. Thank you in advance for your contributions.

Together we can do this. It takes a village…

and this wonderful and beautiful blogging community…
