59 thoughts on “Question of the Day – No. 432

  1. Faith in knowing that while this may be a terrible time, I’ve been able to get thru every bad day of my life before this. That and a lot of prayer and trust that a Higher Power wouldn’t put me in any situation that I can’t get through.

  2. Thoughts of suicide ironically kept me alive. I would “cheer” myself by thinking that if things got really bad, I could always kill myself. Once I gave myself permission for an out, life became bearable because I had a plan.
    I was suicidal for 2 years even while I was on anti-depressants.
    Slowly though, medication and therapy and my growing up all helped and I didn’t need suicidal thoughts for comfort anymore 😊

    1. That sounds very tough, but I’m glad you found the proper support that helped you get out of that dark situation. What helped you the most during that therapy?

      1. 1. The therapist had a beginning, middle and an END for our course (my greatest fear was turning into one of those people like Woody Allen who can’t get through a single conversation without saying, “my therapist said ….”)
        2. There was simple homework everyday
        3. There was evaluation of my homework and that helped me chart how my mind works and the progress I’m making – it was all extremely tangible
        4. Right from day one, I was preparing and being prepared to un-need therapy in 6 months
        5. I was more or less disciplined through the 6months 😊

      1. Txx so much! 😊 it’s a good thing. I’m just working through things by taking one small step at a time. Meditation, prayer, mantras, psychology, writing, nature, focusing on health and positivity, getting enough rest… it all helps with the process. Just step by step.

  3. It wasn’t so much “the most difficult moment of my life” as a general funk. Lots of stuff happened all at once that left me very angry and bitter at everyone, at the world, at God, you get the idea.

    Then I read “Lone Survivor” and watched the movie based off of it. That put everything in perspective for me. I wasn’t up on a mountain in the middle of nowhere, getting shot to pieces, watching my best friends in the world die in front of me. The stuff going on in my life was peanuts in comparison to that. And if Marcus Luttrell could come through that and keep a positive outlook on life, I had zero right to be whining about my own BS.

    1. Even though it’s strange, we somehow find strength in other people’s difficulties. When we see how bad life is for others, we re-evaluate our own.

      1. I had change my atmosphere because I had no choice. I would probably be dead if I had stayed. It was very hard to do but it’s getting easier.

  5. My family has been the pillar of support in my life. Music has always been my secret helper. And if you know BTS; they’re songs always consoled, inspired and motivated me.
