we face something difficult, our brain, just like a computer, will sort through all the possible solutions
to this problem. Suicide is one solution. But suicide has a built-in misconception. Since this is a mental/
emotional problem, it is not our body that needs to die. Rather it is some mental/emotional concept,
idea, old program, emotional trauma, or other bit of mis-information that we have thought to be true,
that needs to die. This misconception must be removed. It needs to go, not the physical body. Killing
the body is definitely not the answer.
If you are feeling suicidal and thinking about ways to do it, you must talk
to someone immediately. Maybe even medications will be needed for a time.
But then begin to search for the mental/emotion traumas that have caused this
thinking. When you find them, use the Emotional Releasing Letters or Emotional
Freedom Techniques to release and remove these misconceptions out of your
mind. You will then find that suicide no longer comes into your thoughts, because Since 1988
