I don’t know who needs to see this, but for me this really helped.
When I’ve struggled with suicidal thoughts, I heard this quote, and it has been a real game changer for me. It made me feel that everything is going to be ok, and it will be better soon.
One thing my mum has always said is “Will it matter in a year’s time? Or even a week’s time?” and to a lot of my problems that I come across no it won’t matter.
How many times have you gone through something and it seemed like the worst thing that could ever happen to you, but now you can’t even remember it?
Ending your life is permanent and once it’s gone, It’s gone. What you’re feeling today may not be the same feeling tomorrow, or next week, but you’re still here and you’re still going to have great times. Everything happens for a reason.
When we experience bad times, it helps us appreciate the good. Such as lockdowns, now more than ever people are really appreciating their freedoms. And we will get it back, we will be back to normal and lockdown will just be a distant memory.
Keep safe, persevere and remember it is going to be ok.
