Suicide is a serious ongoing problem throughout the United States. It doesn’t matter your age, race, or gender, anyone can be impacted by it in one way or another. People commit suicide for various reasons, and one of two results can occur. The first is that you try to commit suicide but survive your attempt, being left to deal with the consequences of your actions. And the second result is successfully committing suicide and leaving behind your loved ones with questions and sadness. 

We have 10 suicide prevention quotes in honor of suicide prevention. These quotes could potentially help you if you are suffering from thoughts of committing suicide or know someone else who is. Remember, time passes, and things will eventually get better.

  1. “Suicide is not an answer, it’s destruction.” - Al Green

Many of us have been dealt challenges throughout our lives. Some challenges may be more complex than others. And at times, it may seem like your world is crashing around you. Suicide may seem like the only way out. But in the end, it's not just you that you are hurting but those who love and care about you.

  1. “ When you feel like giving up, just remember why you held on for so long.” - Haley Williams

It takes strength and power but you are so much stronger than you know. There is a reason you are still here. You wouldn’t still be around if you didn’t have a reason why as mentioned in the quote above. Times get tough but there is always a ‘WHY” even if we may not understand it.

  1. “When you don’t have the strength to take another step, ask those you love to pull you.” - Unknown

Your friends, loved ones, and others around you are meant to be a source of strength when you need them most. They are there to keep loving you and encouraging you while you work through your inner demons. There will always be someone to believe in you when you need it the most.

  1. “If you’re going through hell, keep going.” - Winston Churchill

Now sit there for a minute and take this quote in. This isn’t something that many of us consider when we are going through tough times ourselves. When struggling through difficulties, we forget that everything eventually comes to an end and that whatever we may be dealing with now will as well. You just have to take it one step at a time and keep your head up high.

  1. “This life. This night. Your story. Your hope. It matters. All of it matters.” Jamie Tworkowski

The beautiful thing about quotes is that they can be interpreted in many different ways. Someone may initially have said something so that it be interpreted one way, while others may take it and interpret it another way. In a way, interpretations of what others say can be looked at in a similar way to interpretations of poetry and the meaning behind paintings. Everything is based off of what they see and how it makes them feel and think.

  1. “ It isn’t weak to ask for help. It’s like using a flashlight when you are lost in the dark.” - Unknown

This thought process is both beautiful and quite accurate when you sit and think about it like this. It puts into perspective why it's so important and OK to ask for help if and when you need it. It is also interesting to think about how by not asking for help when you need it, you may actually be making things that much worse for yourself.

  1. “Though no one can go back and make a brand new start, anyone can start and make a brand new ending.” - Carl Bard

This quote is an excellent one that all should take into consideration whether you have found yourself to be extremely down or not. Many people wish they had the ability to turn back the clock and go back in time.  Although this is something that many of us may wish for, it is a blessing in disguise that we are unable to. Some of our least proud moments can be some of the best lessons that we receive in life.

  1. “ Grit your teeth and let it hurt. Don’t deny it, don’t be overwhelmed by it. It will not last forever.” - Harold Kushner

Like all the tough times we may face, sometimes you have to learn to try and find the silver lining. At times life can be a lot and it seems that things are never going to get better. When these moments occur take a deep breath and remind yourself not to become too overwhelmed. What seems important today won’t be important five or even ten years from now. People will forget what happened and move on with their lives.

  1. “When it is darkest, we can see the stars.” - Ralph Waldo Emerson

This is meant to be a reminder to everyone that even when things seem like they are at their lowest, there is always another outer working going on that we just don’t know about. It really makes us stop and reflect on what's important in life. as well as remember that there is a silver lining when it comes to different aspects of our lives.

  1. “There are far, far better things ahead than anything we leave behind.” - CS Lewis

This is an important reminder that everyone needs to be reminded of every so often. It is easy for you to get so wrapped up in your own head that you forget that there are so many things for us to live for.
