A-Z Challenge & Benefits

Wisdom is Seeing Both Sides

Suicide

 

Below are submissions from people regarding some of the benefits they experienced as a result of this perceived challenge:

 

My friend/family/loved one committed suicide:

I became stronger and more independent

I received enormous support from friends and family

I realized how much I value life

I realized that I manage my problems really well and my self worth increased as a result

I realized that my life is not as bad as I thought it was

I no longer have to feel obliged to look after them and have my life back

My family got closer together and we spoke about our feelings which we never do

It dissolved years of tension and resentment in our family and we now talk to each other again

It made me realise that I love my family and that time is precious and expressing my appreciation is important

I became more creative as a result and used my sorrow as a catalyst for amazing creativity

My family turned to me as the advisor and I realized how much they value me and how much I have grown

I realized that I am willing to do whatever it takes to be part of the solution

I learnt to express my feelings

I realised that if my family care that much about my sister and she didn't know it that they must equally care that deeply for me which has opened my eyes to the love that has always been there

 

 

My friend/family/loved one tried to committed suicide:

I got advice and support from people around me

I realised how much my partner cares about me and supports me during the challenge of my sister trying to kill herself

I realised how important it is to say what you would love to say to people while they are alive and not risk living with regret

I was amazingly supported by my family and friends

I realised how much I loved my brother and what I was willing to do to assist them work through their issue

I became closer to my mother and father as a result

We finally spoke about issues everyone had been avoiding

Gave me permission to realize that I need to focus on my own life and goals and that I cannot rescue someone
