    Since I have been viewing several forums like this lately, I am not sure if it was on this one that I read a post that put some sense into my head. The post was addressed to someone else, but the message made me think. I really can't take my life. Not with the pain it would cause my loved ones. I have to stay alive, even though it's painful for me right now. Thank you whoever explained in the post the effects it can have. It's so hard to step out of ourselves in a depression.

    Hi Hopeful, and welcome to SF :) I second what TE has said - this is what we're all trying to do here, stepping out of ourselves to look at our situations more objectively, gain deeper insights and find our real selves - and most of the time, human nature being what it is, it takes our trials and tribulations to get the job done - but it's worth it!!
