This time of year is automatic over stress and depression. A lot have members of their family or close friends they have lost, as well as the stress of the holiday season. Try to have patience , and notice those around you. Even the strongest of souls are weighed down with weight of those they care for, even the strong break down too. We never know the battle or sadness that is going on silently in others. A moment of kindness will go a long way.
If you are feeling depressed or lost, reach out to someone. It can be someone close to you, or a stranger. Remember suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary issue.
Notice changes , usually is subtle, returning something borrowed, or the wanting to talk about something from left field. Or a gift, or simply to be close for a moment.
Other times its quick, like a snapping, quick choice to just let go, end it all. For me at 13 yrs old, it was my snapping and acting in the moment. Thankfully I am still here, but a few of those that I love were not so lucky, Remember just reach out, their is no judegement

Thanks for sharing this there sis, love ya
Calling a suicide hotline can help specially when someone isn't sure if they want to live or die. It's much more complicated when someone wants to die.
I can agree with what you have posted but also Nikki people need to watch what they say to a troubled person. Bullying, harsh words hurt people which adds on to what's already damaged inside them.
People who causes more hurt with their judgmental views, bullying, harsh words in my opinion should be held accountable for help pushing someone over the edge.
