About Suicide

by: Shirley Satterfield

I’ve got something profound in my heart today to share and that is that I am so glad that I have lived a long life and have been able to share in the common human experience a long time. My mother once told me that she did not want children and that she wanted to have an abortion when I was conceived. And it’s true that I wanted to die for a long time in my life. But I’m really past all that now and I cherish each and every day that I’m here , and I take great pleasure in the little things I get to do in my life like washing a dish or baking a biscuit for my husband, and I’m equally thankful that I lived long enough to have been to help my elderly parents in their last days because the Bible teaches us to honor our parents, even the difficult ones.

So suicide is never the answer to our problems since we don’t know the extent of the joy and peace that God has in store for us in our sunset years or when the storm is over.

God bless you all my followers on DWW and Twitter.

Shirley, My heart broke to read what your mother had said to you. My mother looked my sister in the eye and said “I never wanted you. I hate you. I’ve always hated you. I wish you were dead.” She passed away in 2016. I’m a 4 time suicide “survivor” – still hard to come to grips with the fact that I am still here and what it all means. I for one, Shirley, am grateful that you are here. And, thanks for sharing.
