It’s one of the easiest yet one of the most difficult things we do.
Imagine you’re an airplane pilot coming in on landing in the midst of a heavy cloud cover.
Your instincts tell you you’re coming in the correct way, but when you break through the cloud, you’re actually upside down.
In the midst of that cloud, you lost your bearings and had those clouds be low hanging, something disastrous could have happened.
This is similar to the human mind impacted by depression. Thoughts can build up in the mind that seem logical – such as how ending your life can be rationalized – but in actuality, that mind has lost its bearings.
This is why we MUST talk.
Talking removes these thoughts from the mind and puts them out in the open. That openness can provide the perspective needed to avoid suicide.
