Suicide Shouldn't Be An Option

Inspiration from someone who knows first hand what it's like.

Suicide Shouldn't Be An Option

It's three o'clock in the morning. You're sitting on the bathroom floor, crying, trying to decide whether or not this will be it.

You're tired of living. You're in a cycle that repeats day after day, and nothing ever changes. Your depression is at an all-time high. You're tired of trying to do better, and you're tired of being told to lighten up.

I'm here to tell you, this shouldn't be the end.

You're in pain now. You may be going through a rough patch in your life. You may have had a loss in your life, whether it be from death or a simple disagreement. Maybe you're going through a hard breakup.

The pain will subside. Or perhaps it will not subside.

Sometimes the pain will never truly go away.

This is where you need to take a step back, and you need to realize you were placed here with a purpose.

You were not set on this Earth just to throw your life away. You were sent here to change the world, whether it be subtle or noticeable.

This pain was set in your life so you can rise. So you can learn from it and grow stronger.

You're probably a stranger, you probably don't even know who I am. Well, I already know that your life is well worth living.

I was suicidal from the time when I was eleven to even now. I have thoughts sometimes. It truly never goes away.

However, it does get better.

I lost my grandfather to suicide whenever I was twelve years old, and even though I so desperately wanted to die, I saw how his death affected my family.

I saw how him killing himself changed everyone's lives around me.

The thing about suicide and depression is that it's tricky. Sometimes, it's obvious in people. Sometimes, people are really good at hiding it.

My grandfather was really good. I even saw my grandfather smiling and laughing the night before he took his life.

You're not the only one in the world dealing with these thoughts, these voices in your head telling you you're better off leaving this damn world.

This world is cruel, but it's your turn to kick its ass and let it know that you won't let it stop you.

You are strong. You are worth it. You can get through this hell.

If no one believes in you, just know I do.

Don't let a temporary situation cause a permanent reaction.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe.
