Over the weekend our small town lost two young lives to suicide. This is a small town, my teen and Tasha each knew one of them. It saddens me to see kids at the point where they don't think that there is any other way out. That dying is preferred to living.
I wrote here about my own struggles and suicide attempt when I was younger. On a certain level I understand that feeling of worthlessness. I know that if someone had told me back then that tomorrow would be better that it wouldn't have had any impact. At the time I wasn't a Christian so telling me that Jesus loves me wouldn't have meant anything either.
I think that if someone has told me that I do have worth, that I have value it might have more of an impact. I wish that at the time someone had told me...... If you feel worthless get out and give of yourself. Go to the animal shelter and help with the abandoned animals. Go to the hospital and read to the kids and elderly. Go to a nursing home and visit the lonely. Visit the home bound. Find a way to give. You can have a positive impact on someones life. If you sit at home and look at how miserable your life is then you will find misery. If you sit at home and think of some way to give of yourself to someone and then go out and do it then you will find your worth.
What have you done for someone else lately?
