SE 11 Ep 22 Truth And Suicide

In this episode I explore how we as individuals arrive at personal truth and how much that can differ and contrast with other people’s truths. I bring up a number of examples of times where two people have different truths and one must pick one over the other including suicide versus living out your full life.

As someone who has been suicidal before and made a few half-hearted attempts, I explain the psychology of suicide. How logical it seems and how hard and condescending it is to listen to another truth when you are suicidal. Lastly I explore why it is that suicide is considered an abnormality in western culture

If you are feeling suicidal please be open to other truths. Call 1-800-273-8255 in The United States for help. If you are close to making an attempt dial 911!
