A semicolon is used when an author could’ve chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to.
SUICIDE IS A TOUCHY SUBJECT
This is something I don’t really talk about, but there was a time when I wanted this life to just be over. I was numb to the world. I felt like no one would care if I was gone, I felt like a burden to those around me.
Ending the stigma against suicide is a goal I have now. Depression is real. The way a persons brain thinks when they are depressed is not the way a healthy brain thinks. Let me repeat that last part for everyone to hear. WHEN YOU ARE DEPRESSED YOU ARE NOT THINKING RATIONALLY.
I would listen to Car Radio by Twenty-One Pilots on repeat, relating to it. How the quiet would drive me mad, how easy it would be to pull the steering wheel as I was driving.
Suicide is Not the Answer
It takes work climbing out of the hole of despair. It can be done though. Reach out, ask for help. It will get better. Check out my article on 6 Ways to Help Overcome Depression or if you are in need of some good self-care tips click here.
Remember ending suicide starts here with you. Bringing awareness to the subject. Being there for your friends and family. You never truly know what someone is going through.
