Question of the Day


How do I overcome feeling suicidal?

Dear Mike, I am a 26 year old girl. I have been alone throughout my life because people don't like me. I am a beautiful, well behaved, and good, but I can't understand why others hate me. After reading The Secret and your books, I have decided to be positive. "Thoughts becomes things," is what you say, but I want you to guide me. My dream is for people to love and respect me. What actions should be taken? Will you please help me. The fact is that I'm suicidal because I am tired of loneliness.

Question of the Day


How do I overcome feeling suicidal?

Dear Mike, I am a 26 year old girl. I have been alone throughout my life because people don't like me. I am a beautiful, well behaved, and good, but I can't understand why others hate me. After reading The Secret and your books, I have decided to be positive. "Thoughts becomes things," is what you say, but I want you to guide me. My dream is for people to love and respect me. What actions should be taken? Will you please help me. The fact is that I'm suicidal because I am tired of loneliness.


Answer


Hello dear!

I'm sorry to learn of your pain. I know what it feels like to be ignored. Have you heard my audio program, Infinite Possibilities? In the first of the 12 hours I relay what that was like for me at Price Waterhouse, and how I dealt with it. We can send you a free downloadable mp3.

I want you to understand, however improbably, that you are the source of your pain. Others show you what you are thinking of yourself. It is much easier to change things than you suspect. Here is what I recommend:

1. You must learn to be your own source of comfort. Love who you are, with your unique world perspective that no one else has. With your own accomplishments that no one else has achieved. Your accomplishments may not equate to blue ribbons or gold trophies, but from where you came from, you have achieved more than you have given yourself credit for. It is time to start appreciating your own amazing triumphs and successes. You have a job! Many who write me can't get a job. Do you know how lonely they feel?

2. You chose this life AND THE CHALLENGES you are now facing. You knew what you were doing. It doesn't matter that you don't recall this, or that you don't agree with me. You must not feel sorry for yourself. Instead, feel sorry for the people who only dream of having a place in the world such as you have created. Go and help them. In the shelters, jails, and rehabilitation centers. Maybe consider my Train the Trainer program, let us know if you need help attending, financially. You need only spend some time with people far less fortunate, though more hopeful than yourself, for a total life adjustment. You have it within you to see that you have a lot to offer, especially to the lonely.

3. As above, do not focus on what is wrong, develop a habit of focusing on what is right. You think. You are needed. You have two arms. Two legs. Clothes. An apartment. Start a gratitude journal. You must do this. You want to live and be happy, do this! Every day before bed write down 10 things you are lucky to have; that you are grateful for. If, instead, you continually focus on what you do not have, you will become blind to all else.

4. Life is short, yours and mine are almost over, no matter your age. It will all be done soon enough. To prematurely end yours would be the silliest thing. Even if you were faced with starvation and not a soul in the world to write to, I suggest you honor your deeper choice to live. You are here, therefore your choice to live is far greater than your fleeting choice to end this gift because you now find yourself alone and depressed. Please reconsider and don't ever be so foolish again. Your comeback from despair will light the way for many more who follow. Names you will never know, but who will know you through our deeper celestial connection. You feel alone because you use your physical senses to judge the entirety of reality. Don't be so shortsighted. You know what I am telling you is true. You are a spiritual giant who has chosen a very, very demanding course-load. See that challenge through no matter the mortal cost. And better, rather than suffer through it, rise above these challenges for which you are so capable of transcending... that was the whole point of choosing them. Learn to be happy in the simple things and you will attract greater things. Please do this, if not for yourself, for others.

None of these suggestions will be "easy" at first. ALL of them will take time. You have that. It has been gifted to you. Be thankful, say you are sorry, take the initiative again, and again, and again, and I promise you the time is nearer than you think when you will wonder if this was all just a bad a dream and you will wonder if you were really contemplating ending your precious life.

Thank you for writing me. For sharing this journey in time and space. And for doing what you know to do, however tall the task.

I really do love you,
Mike

P.S. Now please, before the week is out, make one phone call to help someone else.
