Right now, this very moment, someone is thinking about suicide. That friend who is telling you they are ‘okay’..’fine’.. is possibly far from allowing you into their actual reality. They aren’t revealing their true feelings because you won’t understand and will brush it off. Listen to them…hear them…and if nothing else, verbally let them know you are there for them, you care about them and that they can talk to you about anything. Hug them. Severe depression takes an otherwise healthy brain and evokes thinking patterns of loneliness. They cannot visualize any other option. Verbal compassion can help your friend silence these negative thoughts and begin to think differently. It’s a start. If you aren’t sure how to talk with someone who has thoughts of suicide, it’s time to learn. What are you waiting for? The time is now for tomorrow may be too late. Reach out…listen…save a life.
