What we're about
Anyone should join if they have suffered from suicidal thoughts and want to overcome them, have attempted and did not succeed and no longer feel the urge to leave this planet, and for those who simply want to talk with others in a supportive group environment. I am a suicide survivor and want to help others overcome the hopelessness they may feel inside. I hope this group will provide hope and motivation that we are all loved and life is worth living even though it can be very painful at times.
I started this group because I wanted to be a better and happier me so I started working on improving myself internally as well as externally, not an easy thing to do when you feel hopeless, but the outcome has made me grow in ways I always hoped for.
You are loved and be well.
This weeks Over-comers weekly words of wisdom:
~By Doe Zantamata
Compassion dissolves anger. Understanding why someone behaves the way they do allows for forgiveness when they have mistreated you. Maybe they are insecure, or in pain, or maybe they even suffered some type of abuse in their lifetime, and you can see why they are the way they are. But when your compassion extends to excusing them for treating you poorly, over and over, it not only damages your self-worth, but prevents them from healing as well. Refuse to allow it to continue, for everyone’s sake.
~By S.C. Lourie
You could have grown cold, but you grew courageous instead. You could have given up, but you kept on going. You could have seen obstacles, but you called them adventures. You could have called them weeds, but instead you called them wildflower. You could have died a caterpillar, but you fought on to be a butterfly. You could have denied yourself goodness, but instead you chose to show yourself some self-love. You could have defined yourself by the dark days, but instead through them you realized your light.
Have a wonderful week and be kind to yourself and live your life selflessly not selfishly.
