Deadly Fears


Please help me understand 'why" some people actually
commit suicide. We've all been depressed at one time or
another but how does someone get that low?


People who attempt suicide are searching for a way to
stop emotional pain. The individual is so focused on
there own exaggerated fears and circumstances that
they tragically believe death is preferable to life. Those
who do this only want to escape, find a permanent
solution to their problems and believe that their friends
and family would be better off without them. However,
the reality is that suicide effects loved ones for
generations and leaves more pain in its wake then it
In situations where someone is considering suicide,
prompt intervention is vital. Encourage or take your
loved one to a mental health professional to any
hospital emergency room.
