Day 05

A time when I thought of ending my own life:

Pretty sensitive. I have never seriously contemplated suicide but there was a time during a bout of depression that I went through during middle school (entering high school) when the teasing just would not stop that I thought of how easy it is to break the body; how easy it is to break the skin or poison the blood. But how hard it must be to summon the courage to actually follow through with such a permanent decision to a temporary problem. How many people must hurt after losing you. I have never been low enough to entertain the notion of suicide being the only way out, but I do know someone that tried and almost succeeded and I thank God that that person is still here with me.
