2020 will be my third Beyond Bitumen Rally, an organisation I am very proud to be part of. For the 3rd year in a row I am asking you to support the many thousands of people living with depression and anxiety. Help them to find HOPE. STOP them moving deeper into their darkness and help STOP suicide.
Suicide is easy.....Ive heard people say this. Its the easy way out.......Ive heard this too. Having been very close to the final cut, I will tell you its NOT easy. When you are that far down on your life you become tormented with the thought. You start to consider how and where and when and why. Thoughts are going through your head constantly pulling you further into the darkness. Talking. Sounds easy. But the thought of talking brings on further sadness. The thought of talking has you reliving the sadness. It hurts so much, just talking. Suicidal thoughts then bring on guilt and more sadness. Thought of the ones you love and how you will hurt them if you were to take your life, makes you more depressed. Society, Machoism and Pride work so well when you are on top of things however when you are depressed they work against you. Too Proud to talk and share how you are feeling. Too worried as a man to talk to your mate and tell him how you feel as you dont want them to think you are week. Too scared to tell society that life is too hard.
AUSTRALIA LETS TALK. oh yeah donate a few dollars too, please.
