WIN Emerging Proud Through Suicide Book

Emerging Proud Through Suicide Book

Recently I was invited to contribute to this amazing little pocket book ‘ Emerging Proud Through Suicide’ to help people see that we can emerge through suicide and that depression and life challenges can hold a great gift as we move through them.

In my Podcast ‘Can The Pain Of Depression Be A Gift‘ I talk more about this topic.  I feel it’s very important to look at mental health issues in a new way, as a vehicle for transformation and hope. This is where #EmergingProud comes in. They are a fantastic support and resource for anyone wanting to find the gift in the pain.

A short extract from their press release:

#EmergingProud Through Suicide, the latest book in the KindaProud Pocketbooks of Hope and Transformation series, aims to offer an alternative perspective on this sensitive issue by telling stories of hope from individuals who have been close to taking their lives describe what helped them to not only survive, but thrive.. Our society is becoming more open to normalising the struggles of mental health, and sharing positive stories is considered an essential part of the recovery and healing process as it helps people to feel less isolated. 

Everyone in #EmergingProud Through Suicide has previously hit an all time low in their life but found inner strength to emerge stronger and more determined to live a meaningful life than ever before. The transformational and true life stories in this book provide the reader with positivity and hope, as each individual recounts their personal story, sharing the valuable messages they have learnt along the way. These stories touch on how important it is to seek help and guidance at such a vulnerable point in life, getting on the path of mindfulness and learning to truly connect with oneself and others.”

    My advice I would give to someone is to ‘take a break’ have a holiday, somewhere completely random and refresh your brain. It will give you a change to escape from what ever troubles are getting you down then you never know, you may miss what you had before.. or you may want to start up your life in a different destination and experience a new way of living! I understand that some times family’s hard and ending your life feels like the only option to ‘get away’ from the struggles, But go sort your passport and travel! There is something out there for everyone!

    Such a difficult topic to navigate and yet need more books like these in the world. Being honest and earnest and vulnerable has its worth. Great job!

    My advice is to write letters to people or make a journal. Most of the letters I’ve written have never been posted but just getting it out on paper and being honest really helps x

    My advice would be to speak to someone, anyone that will listen and if you start to get suicidal thoughts because you think your a burden or that other people’s lives would be better if you was’nt there, stop, talk to these people because I can almost guarantee that they would want do anything to keep you in their lives.

    My best advice is to talk about how you are feeling, whether that is to your friends and family or a helpline like Samaritans.

    I’ve been through this, it does get better. Find a hobby, speak to those in your life and see the good in things x

    Don’t try and relate to the person if you’ve never been through it yourself. All you can do is try and direct them to someone / an organisation that knows about it.

    This is a very difficult answer, each and every person is different and has different reasons for feeling like this. The main thing I can suggest is to talk to someone you trust , this can be an anonymous person to a family member or friend, try not to hold it in.

    They need to understand others have through time got them in this position, by manipulation, belittling, force etc and need to stay away from certain people and boost their confidence by doing things they like, rather than being subjected to negative thoughts etc being forced upon them.
