When I was 24 I had a breakdown fueled by flashbacks of childhood trauma & from that I spiraled into a severe depression.
Life became so hard. The mask I wore was tight & the nightmares were too real. I was serving no purpose & there seemed no viable solution than to just go away forever. "The pain won't stop until I'm gone," I would think.
So, I found a pretty dress to wear & pictured my mid summer suicide in a beautiful open field. I would just have to find the perfect tree to hang myself up in.
But planning & commiting to the act are two different things & I cannot speak for the lives affected by such tragedy. My soul simply aches for them.
It's a fragile fucked up situation. It's real & it's complicated. There is a lot we'll never understand, but if we take steps to love harder & practice compassion, we might discover there is power in the simple act of trying to create a positive change in the lives of others.
Courage. Willingness. These are the things. ♡; .

Players and individuals mental health is little by little starting to be recognized on how important it is and how much it affects everything. But unfortunately still majority of societies don’t accept this and rather leave the topic in the unknown. Usually the impression given is that it’s almost a sin for people say these things out loud and just suck it up “be tough or strong” “Don’t show weakness”. When in fact it shows strength that you can have he courage to deal with this kind of things head on. It’s always easier to push it aside although eventually it will get bigger and bigger rather then disappear. Also the human mind and body is very good compensator which in long run might not be the best thing.

Worth Sharing❤Regrann from @beyond_intimacy - DOES GOD CHOOSE OUR SPOUSES FOR US? The good book says... "He who finds a Wife finds a good thing and obtains favor from the Lord". Looking at this verse critically, it is made evident that
1. It is the duty of a man to find the woman & present her before Him & Her parents.
2. Not every female is a Wife.
3. There is a side of God activated over a man who finds a female who is a wife. /-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/-/ (A) Now, every time women yell that all men are the same. This is because they have either been wounded, cheated on, or rejected. This is simply true. Yes, all men are the same, they are all the same until you hide yourself inside God so that any man who will FIND you, will have to find God first to get to you. Have you ever seen a man praying desperately to God to help him so he does not loose a lady?
It's because he found something different in her. As long as you expose yourself & make yourself readily available to every Tom, Dick & Harry, all men you meet will be the same. You will always get the same result UNTIL you change the way you do things, hide inside God, & that dude will have to find God, meet God, seek God, before He can get God's daughter. Stop asking men to marry you, stop proposing to men, stop assisting the process for your own parochial interests. It is the STRESS of the man. Any other thing is again the natural order of God. Let the man find you. Mind you this isn't the same as playing hard to get. That one is a strategy for insecure women who haven't found their value yet. Value does not stress to be seen or noticed. (B) Now, to answer the big question. No, God does not choose who we marry for us. But marriage is very critical & God encourages us to consult with Him while we choose. You don't gather a list of women or men who are interested in you or you in them and lift it to God in prayers. Guess what?! God will NOT answer that, you will be met with silence. God has laid basic prerequisites down in the Bible for us to follow while choosing a spouse. - #regrann Pls continue from his page @beyond_intimacy
