Dealing with suicidal thoughts
Remember problems are temporary but suicide is permanent. Taking your own life is never the right solution to any challenge you face. Give yourself time to change and the pain subsides. In the meantime, whenever you have suicidal thoughts, you should take important steps to stop them.
Keep dangerous things away from you
If you think suicidal thoughts are coming to your mind, or may come. And if you’re worried that you might not do something like that, the first thing to do is to remove firearms (pistol-guns), knives, or dangerous drugs from your surroundings. Every effort should be made to ensure that such things do not reach you.
