    Don't Give Up!! Comment
    Bethany Morris, 4/12/04 4:34:16 pm
    Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow.
    Dorothy Thompson

    Iíve been feeling kind of down lately. Mostly because I feel helpless. I feel small. There is so much going on in my life right now that I donít have any control over. I have realized lately that I might have some control issues. I like to be in charge of my life and things that happen in it. I like to have control over situations and actions. What does a control freak do when they can do nothing?

    I was talking to a friend the other night about all of this, and the issue came up that what would happen if something really bad happened and I couldnít do anything about it. Even if I tried my hardest. I wasnít sure what I would do. You see I have prided myself on being able to help people when they need it. I feel like thatís what God wants me to do. I want to help people, anyone whether I know them or not. It makes all of my past pain easier to come to terms with. I ask God to give me wisdom and strength to get through my life so I can make a difference in someone elseís. Itís worked great in the past. I give my heart and soul so that someone else knows that they will make it. That they can have the strength to survive.

    Life isnít easy and sometimes people feel like they canít live any more. Iíve been there Iíve been in deep dark hell and I didnít want to wake up in the morning. You just want it to stop. To make the pain go away.

    What do you do when you canít give any more? When your strength is gone? When you just donít know what to do to help? Iím scared. And feel lonely for the first time in a long time. But I have to keep going, keep my chin up and dig deep for the strength. Pray for strength and courage to help fight the battles.

    If youíre out there who ever you are and are feeling so much despair. Please know it gets better. It might not seem like it, but there is light at the end of that dark dark tunnel. Iíve been there Iíve walked the same road. What ever you do donít give up. Youíre life is more precious than you will ever know right now. Just keep going and find something to hold on to. Seek help, find a councilor, friend, family member, clergyman, anyone who you trust and tell them how you feel. Donít give up until youíre tried everything. Someone out there loves you and would miss you if you werenít around!!

    If you are a friend to someone who is depressed and has considered suicide please look at these below links for help. You can make a difference. Stay strong and have a friend near by to support you too. To my friend. I love you and will always stand by you.

    Also, remember you might never know who's in trouble. So be there. Check in with your friends. Take care of each other out there!!
