Is Suicide Really Painless

Is suicide really painless like the song says? I would like to know. In a way i feel that I am writing my own suicide note here. And the sad and pathetic thing is that it isn’t likely that anyone will ever read it. it will be lost in cyber space til well after I am dead.

It’s one of those times in life that we all must experience from time to time except this one is somewhat more decisive. It’s not so much the trauma of being betrayed and losing her but the whole complete collapse of life. It’s like for the first time I have lost my will to live. And I can’t get it back. no matter how i try.

The strange thing i have been told about suicide notes is that they are a way in which one can talk one’s way out of suicide. Like trying to reawaken one’s desire to go on living. I have often heard the saying…”I would kill myself if I had the guts.” And it’s true that suicide is a big step. It is for many an attempt to go to a quiet peaceful place for a long period of time. to a place where the noise and confusion of the world and life itself isn’t in our faces.

Granted as the bible says we are wonderfully and terribly made. we can handle a lot. Our physical and mental capacities are quite remarkable. but there often comes a time when we break beneath our burdens. A point where we can handle no more. And then at some point we snap. On different levels for different reasons.

Some get mental breakdowns and have to go on meds for life. others well they just go completely insane and get meds for life. Others life me well, we can’t lose our sanity so we choose to end our lives. I sometimes wish they would just lock me up and leave me in peace for a while. But I can never seem to lose my grasp on reality. so here i am finally collapsing. I hope I don’t go through with it. Death by my own hand isn’t all that appealing. 

No I would rather die by another hand be it man’s or God’s. But I don’t desire to be here anymore. 

Please understand that I am not mentally ill nor have I ever been diagnosed as such. No manic depression, bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. Just plain old me trying to overcome one disaster after another. Just when things look hopeful it all completely collapses. Every time. My hearts desires are placed before god and then it all comes tumbling down. Sometimes I yell at him and demand to know why. Other believers point me to the book of Job. but I digress. no one ever seems to have an answer for me. So I wait hopefully for one but who knows.

I am pretty sure I will be alive tomorrow much to my disappointment. I will continue to ask God to bless my day and maybe at some point he will.

And if by chance someone should read this at some point please pray for me. There must be more to life than this.

God bless

  1. That resolve to not resort to suicide, which can be exhibited as fear as well and which I read in another of your posts, is such a huge strength, hold on to it and acknowledge it as such. No matter what we believe or which deity we follow, we are all here together in the same journey, living in the same world. And I know for a fact that it is beautiful just as much because the reasons are hidden as they are apparent. For some people the reasons will be clear and for others they won’t, but as long as we try to stay positive by changing our own perspective, it is then that we can have control over our own happiness. It’s something I’m trying to do just as desperately as the next person but that happiness is what will then make everything worthwhile and worth living for. I really do wish you the best in life’s journey =D

    • Life’s journey can be long and arduous or not. I am old enough to realize that it isn’t always a bed of roses. And the resolve to see it through definitely came from above. Life right now is still difficult to say the least. But this journey must become an adventure. If we are going to live it, then we had best learn to love it.
