“Her passion was as deep as her loneliness”

Saved from her suicidal urges, now she is saving the lives of others who are fighting against the same fatal desires she had to go through.

Suicidal urge is not to be taken lightly. It is very raw, very real, and very desirable to those who are feeling it. It comes like a forbidden fruit.

I still fight with that urge. It’s something I’ve lived with since I was 13. I just learned to channeled that evil desire to something healthier: to die with Jesus Christ. My self-destructive urge is still there. I just follow a different pattern now: if I am going to be destroyed, then let my destruction save others kind of way.(Here, you can read my past post about my description of one of my latest fights against my suicidal urge with the help of Jesus through the vision He revealed me. It was back in April this year as I recall.)

Dr. Linehan’s story truly showcases how evil can be overcome, and the goodness will conquer in the end. Beautifully done, Dr. Linehan!

I owe so much to people like her. Dr. Kay Redfield Jamison, Dr. Elaine N. Aron, and many great writers and authors. Of course, my numerous therapists and psychologists as well.

But without Jesus Christ as my Lord, I would still be in the darkness and indescribable pain.

Don’t lose hope. Hope is abundant, even in the darkness. Especially in the darkness, actually. That’s where I found my true hope. That’s where I found the true answer. That’s where I found my Lord. That’s where I found my life that was to last eternally.

And when I found the Truth, for the first time, I was not afraid of anything.
