Applying at Lifeline to be a Telephone Crisis Supporter. Its roughly one year training and at least one year working. I really want to do this though.
Dickheads like this piss me off. Going through thoughts of suicide is the loneliest you will ever be. If you’ve heard about TWLOHA day then you’ll appreciate the fact that you are not alone and people are out there willing to do something and help you out if you need it. It stops you from feeling that emptiness inside of you that hurts you and drives you closer to the edge. Seeing one word “Love” on a day as significant as suicide prevention day means a lot. Go fuck yourselves. To all those that ever need someone to talk. Clickity Or contact a suicide prevention hotline.
thank u all for suicide awareness day writing the word love on your arm has actually stopped suicide happening altogether suicide no longer exists you did it guys
Today is the day where we should all take the courage to make sure our friends and loved ones are okay. RUOK day is a day of suicide awareness and prevention, by ensuring the little problems don’t make a bigger one by asking the question “Are you okay?”.
Spread the word, be kind hearted and concerned for the ones you love, in Australia alone 65,000 people try to take their life every year, in the UK this number is 170,000.
Help stop self harm and abuse as well as the possibility of Suicide.
A conversation could change someone’s life.
All it takes is three words.
Are you okay?
Spread the word.
Don Ritchie, i met him around a year ago on pure coincidence, having known of him through a friend.
For those who do not know of Don Ritchie, you may recognise him by the name: “Guardian Angel”.
Don Ritchie is a man who for over 50 years has watched over a cliff known as: “The Gap” the most notorious suicide location in Sydney, the worst in all of Australia with local residents suggesting that at least one person a week has attempted to commit suicide in that location.
However, this a majority of the time prevented by Don, and his voluntary service to watch over the lonely and desperate people who attempt to leave the world. To date Don reckons he has saved over 160 lives through personal assistance, and witnessed many more deciding better, and leaving.
Yet many do leave, however, upon meeting him i thanked him personally for being able to save my friends life. Three years ago my one of my friends attempted suicide at that very spot, whilst Don did not push into his personal life, he offered my friend to come to his house and talk things through.
Today marks the three years in which my friend attempted to end his life, thankfully he is still around today, all because of this man who asks for nothing in return, but the preservation of life and happiness.
It is Don who gave me the reason for caring so much, to understand that many need it, not necessarily anything major, but someone to talk to, someone to care.
And i do, still to this day, with everyone i meet, as many of you know.
To those who do not know me well, i always offer this, there is only one time where i am not contactable, and that is in 80 or so years when my time has come.
Until then you may ask for any assistance. Any whatsoever.
It does not bother me, no matter what you think.
I do it because i care.
There is always help.
