Rådgivning til Forebyggelse af Selvmord

“Jeg vil have, at alle skal vide, at der er håb. Vi kan ikke holde op med at håbe, eller er det for omsonst for os. Men jeg vil gerne have regeringerne at vide, vi skal gøre noget … regeringer- kom og tale med os i lokalbefolkningen, og vi vil arbejde sammen og finde ud af det sammen, fordi vi ikke længere kan gøre det alene. Så vi har brug for jeres hjælp. ”

Denne erklæring ovenfor er lavet af Jennifer Watkins, formand for National Inuit Youth Council, i anledning af dagens fejring af World Suicide Prevention Day. Health Canada rapporterede, at den nationale selvmordssats for Inuitter er 135 pr. 100.000 mennesker, sammenlignet med 12 pr. 100.000 for Canada samlet set. Selv om det selvfølgelig er alarmerende, at mange unge inuitter har den højeste selvmordsrate i landet, skal vi også overveje, at mange mennesker i dag over hele verden betragter selvmord som en gyldig mulighed – håbet har simpelthen forladt dem.

De fleste af dem i coachingbranchen er enige om, at den fælles forbindelse mellem mennesker, der begår selvmord, er troen på, at selvmord er den eneste løsning på de stærke følelser af desperation og depression. Selvmord ses som den eneste mulighed til rådighed. Men den virkelige tragedie af selvmord er, at disse intense negative følelser forhindrer folk i at se, at der faktisk findes andre løsninger.

Anyone can carry his burden, however hard, until nightfall. Anyone can do his work, however hard, for one day. Anyone can live sweetly, patiently, lovingly, purely, till the sun goes down. And this is all life really means.
-Robert Louis Stevenson

Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You’ll find what you need to furnish it – memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.

“When you were born, you were crying and everyone around “When you were born, you were crying and everyone around you was smiling. Live your life so that when you die, you’re the one smiling and everyone around you is crying.”
