Hey everyone, this podcast is an ironic one. I am currently sitting in my resort hotel room in Puerto Vallarta but received a call this week while here about a new friend that has committed suicide.
I met her while she came to our church to become a new member. I had fabulous conversations with her, including discussing her upcoming baptism. Nonetheless, I never saw the pain and struggles she had in her life to end it abruptly.
Most of the time, we never do. We assume all is well becuase we don’t ask the questions. Well, I want you to know: YOU ARE WORTH IT. You deserve to life a long and happy life.
I have often said: suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Think about that: you can get the help that you need to get through your struggles. Talk about your story, get counseling – there is hope!
