Warning Signs of Suicide

While interviewing for this book, many people revealed that they no longer wanted to live. They said they felt like strangers or misfits on the planet. In spite of having a relatively good life and not wanting to cause other people to grieve for them, they just wanted to go Home.

Since this seems to be such a common thought among stressed out people living in a chaotic world, I addressed the topic with an entire chapter in More Than Meets the Eye. For now, here are some warning signs that someone might be depressed enough to be considered suicidal.

• Talk about suicide or death
• Withdrawal from family and friends
• Sudden behavioral changes
• Wanting to “tie up loose ends” or give away belongings
• Reckless behavior
• Withdrawal from regular activities
• Sudden change in sleeping patterns or eating habits

If you or your loved one express these behaviors, please take it seriously and get professional help.
