    This song is so powerful. Coming from someone who married into a family plagued with depression and suicide, thank you Matt for making an awful disease more transparent!

    2012. My daughter died at birth, and the love my life left me 2 weeks after we lost her. A month later my dog was run over and killed. I felt so numb and alone. One night I got in my car and drove to Chesapeake Bay Bridge, with the intent to end it all. Right as I got there, I asked God to forgive me and told Him if there was any reason to live... Give me a sign. My best friend literally called in that moment... Said she was on her way to see me, BC she felt like I needed a friend for a few days. She saved my life that night. And I am so thankful someone called.

    Just know that your life matters, even if someone has told you otherwise or you feel like you can't make it another day or minute. God had a reason for you being born & that you can bet on. He loves us so much that he knows exactly how many hairs we have on our heads! I've lost 2 family members to suicide (an uncle & a cousin) & it still hurts. I know that a lot of us often let another person's opinion of us dictate our happiness cuz I used to do the same thing. But when we find Jesus, He becomes our everything. My earthly father told us growing up that we'd never amount to anything & for a very long time I let him cause me to believe it. I raised my son by myself but never felt worthy. BUT now I have 4 beautiful grandkids who I'm very close with. We live in 2 different states now but when we talk on the phone they tell me they miss me & love me so much. It makes my heart melt especially when the youngest who just turned 11 last month telss me Nana you're an angel. No she's the angel that God gave us. My DIL has asked me on more than 1 occasion to talk to 1 or the other for this reason or that cuz she just didn't know what to do or say. They know Nana doesn't play BUT they also know that Nana LOVES them very much. They're my heart. I said all of that to just give y'all a window to see thru not to get a pat on the back cuz God knows I'm FAR FROM PERFECT. But I just wanted y'all to know that you're all important!!
    GOD Bless everyone of y'all & if anyone needs a Nana to talk to, I'm here for you!!!! Love y'all!!!!

    My pastor told a story once. When he was a teenager he took his double barrel shotgun out into the woods planning on taking his life, he took one round of 12 gauge birdshot so nobody would doubt it was on purpose. Halfway there he scared up a rabbit. Being avid hunter out of reflex he shot and hit the rabbit. Realizing what he had done he prayed to God, knowing God had put that rabbit there. He took the rabbit home for dinner.
    Many years later he tells me the story not knowing I struggled with suicidal thought alot.
    You never know what your choices and actions will do for others. Always live with intention of helping others. You might save a life.

    Listen people if your thinking of ending it all you aren't alone.
    Trust Jesus he will take your burden and lift you up.

    Yeah, I've felt like that many times, but I know how it would effect my children if I did something stupid and permanent, for a temporary situation. I know what happens to 90% of pets when the owner passes. There are so many other reasons. I still fucking hate and loathe my life, and even sometimes I wish I was gone. But I'll never do it, I will never be that selfish.

    Belongingness-feeling accepted by others-is believed to be a fundamental need, something that is essential for an individual's psychological health and well-being.[5] Increased social connectedness-a construct related to belongingness-has been shown to lower risk for suicide. More specifically, being married, having children, and having more friends are associated with a lower risk of suicidal behavior.[6]Additionally, "pulling together" (e.g., gathering for sporting events, celebrations) with others has been shown to have a preventive effect.[7] For example, suicide rates have been lower on Super Bowl Sundays than other Sundays, and it is believed that the social connectedness that occurs from being a fan of a sport's team increases one's feeling of belongingness.[7] In contrast, social isolation is frequently reported by those who die by suicide prior to death.[8]

    ABSOLUTELY love this song, i personally think its the best country song thats out right now, i can relate to this so from beginning to end, i am a person who suffers from depression , up until i met my now husband i struggled with depression to the point i questioned my life daily, thinking and trying to find away out, i remind him every day that he saved my life, I also had a ex who tried to convince me that i should of gotten a abortion with our son, i choose not too even if it meant that i would be raising him by myself, unfortunately I loss my son due to kidney failure and pre-mature labor...
    this song hit home for me in every aspect, it is a very personal song and those who have experienced these situations could agree.
    some times all it takes is for someone to pick up the phone the call, people who suffer from depression or ptsd are not people seeking attention, sometimes we need to be reminded that there are people who do care and we do matter, the mind is a power tool and if you suffer from depression, the depression over powers the "normal thinking" process.

    I know its probably use my friend Laurens name on this bc she set up the phone but anyways my name is Torey and I've also be the same guy as you with a 9mm in my hand upto my head and I actually pulled the trigger I did it twice and just so happened neither one of the rounds fired every other one in the mag did except for those two but i didn't find that out until several days or few weeks later but when the second one didn't fire I just took it as a sign it wasn't meant to be then but unlike you my life hasn't done anything but seem to get worse it went up for a short period but then it started going down pretty fast and it's still heading down hill..... And honestly I'm wish pretty much every single day that it's my last or that I don't wake up the next morning I really wish that one of them had fired or that I didn't make it through totaling a car here while back or totaling a ninja that I had and walked away literally with some scraps only one that was kinda bad which is crazy considering I was wearing a sleeveless shirt and basketball short but some how I got up and walked away I did have a concussion tho... But I can't figure out why I'm still here for anything. Feels like someone is using me or keeping me here as a joke just to watch me suffer honestly..... I keep trying to hope it will change and get better but hasn't yet no matter what I do or how hard I try if I'm going to be stuck here but IDK if it ever will.....
