5. A time you thought about ending your own life.Posted: April 24, 2011
I’m not going to lie and say that I have *never* thought about it.I think most people probably have.
The thoughts were fleeting and (thankfully) I know I would never do anything that stupid or selfish. And yes, it is selfish.
The last year and a half has been very trying for me – marriage trouble, husband unemployed, general unhappiness with everyone and everything around me. That can put you in a very dark place.
Then I snapped out of it and realized how lucky I really was – I have family and friends that love me and are there for me, I have a roof over my head, I have food in my fridge and my cabinets, I have a job, I have everything I need. So many people don’t have those basic things, and here I was thinking like an idiot that things would be easier/better if I were no longer here.
I am far too strong of a person to do something like that.
