World Suicide Prevention Day: Encouraging Quotes

Trigger warning: This post discusses suicide.

According to the World Health Organization, close to 800,000 people die every year due to suicide. Suicide is the second leading cause of death among 15 to 29 year olds around the world. As you all know, I’ve struggled for years with my mental health which ultimately led up to me attempting suicide not once but 4 different times. It was a cry out for help. Since today is World Suicide Prevention Day, I thought I could share some encouraging quotes that may help get you through your day.  

 

If you or anyone you know is having suicidal thoughts please reach out for help. Check out this website, National Suicide Prevention Lifeline for more resources or call 1-800-273-8255.


As always, thanks so much for reading! Questions, comments, and feedback are always welcome. If you enjoyed this post, please comment, like and share! Make sure to check out my Instagram; @tianiangela_ and my latest video on Youtube💋

  1. I love these quotes especially the Obama one because so many times people are afraid to ask for help as they think people will judge them or it’s a sign of weakness. But it’s not- it takes so much strength to speak out and ask for help. I used to self-harm for like four years before I stopped and I wish I had gotten help sooner but I also saw it as a sign of weakness and didn’t get help till I realised just how much I needed it.

  2. Thank you so much for sharing your story! The stigma makes it so hard for people like us to want to share and get help. It’s so great that you can come out and share as I know someone will really appreciate your words. We must keep spreading awareness!
