o many people suffer from such severe dis-ease that they lose their will to live. They live with constant "pain" never believing that life could and can be better. I know this to be true because I used to be one of them until I made the choice to embrace life and all that it is. Easier said then done right? Right. Wrong. It just depends on you and how badly you want to feel better. Some people do not want to feel better because they are in their comfort zone. There is fear of the unknown and believe it or not there is fear of actually BEING happy. Why? Because you are then afraid you will lose that happiness so you remain stuck where you are - unable and unwilling to move. The one thing to remember is that once you become truly happy, you will never want to go back to being unhappy so you do what it takes and yes it takes time and practice for most. There are a select few who have had the ability to "change" overnight but again, it just depends on how badly you want to live life the way you were meant to live life.

I certainly do not take dis-ease, depression, and / or suicidal tendencies lightly for I have experienced all of them and more. I know how painful it can be and I know there is not much that can be said that will help take the pain away. But what I do know is that the pain can go away if you make the choice to live rather than die. There were plenty of times throughout my life that I lost my will to live but I always knew there was something more; something more to ME and that is what I kept striving to discover. At first I did not believe true happiness really existed but it does. The great thing about it is that you do not have to go anywhere to "find" it for it lies right inside of you. True happiness is being, breathing and living as who you were meant to be. You are pure positive energy radiating unconditional love at all times; if you ALLOW it.

It is when you are disconnected from who you really are; your true-self, that you will feel the most pain. Your true-self knows nothing but joy, happiness, peace, love, and well-being. When you take this part of you "away" from yourself, it creates such a discord that yes, you will feel as if you have nothing to live for. You will feel sadness, despair, depression, hopelessness, ugliness, and unworthy of anything good. You will want to get rid of your pain by ending your life, but it does not have to be like that.

I truly believe that we can and do create our own reality and with that comes creating happiness or unhappiness for ourselves. Remaining in the present moment and doing only what you can do right NOW to make yourself feel better is all that it takes. You are the one who is in control of how you feel, not your MIND. Empty your mind and you will find some peace and quiet from all the garbage that you allow to run through it.

If you want to feel better and you want a better life, you have to do the "work". You have to do whatever it takes to get you to where you want to go. No one can do it for you. My words and experiences can guide you, but the actual work has to come from you. If you feel your life is in shambles and you have no idea where to begin, start by breaking it down. Look at each part of your life that you would like to change and beginning with the most important, take one step at a time to change it or in some cases, get rid of what or who is taking you down. Believe it or not, one tiny "shift" away from how you are feeling right now can make all the difference in the world. But you have to keep building on it. You have to keep moving forward, focusing on the positive aspects of your life and do not think for one minute you do not have any because we all do.

I realize that this particular subject is a sensitive one and again I do not take it lightly. There is so much more that could be said but each individual is different and each situation is unique to that particular person. The first thing I would do is to ask yourself WHY you feel you are losing your will to live. What is going on in your life that makes you want to end your life? What part of your life do you believe you do not have the power to change? What would be the worst outcome if things in your life did not improve? Do you really want to do the work that is needed to move yourself into a better feeling place or do you just want to depend on others to try to make it better for you? What are you doing right now to feel better? How much effort are you willing to spend on your happiness? How much is your life worth to you? And if it is not worth much to you, then ask yourself why.

You are the only one who can change your current circumstances. The more positive energy you send out the more your life will change for the better and the better you will feel.
