Suicide? Absolutely Not!

As I stood in the cemetery, watching the casket being lowered slowly into the ground, I listened to the sobs of despair and anguish from the mourners who had gathered for the burial. My best friend had committed suicide. She was sixteen years old. She had dreams and hopes, and now she was gone! I could only look back in retrospect and wonder why I ignored the now so obvious signs. Would I have been able to help her if I recognized the pain and turmoil she was in?

It was then I realized, suicide is not the answer. See, I too, had struggled with committing suicide. I too, wanted to end my life only a few weeks before. I did not do it then because my sister walked in just in time, so I hid my bottle of pills. I just said to myself, “I’ll wait another time”. But now I realize, as bad as things might seem, suicide is not the answer.

It was a very sad occasion, but I was glad I was there, because between the sobs of this woman, she kept saying, if only my friend had just visited the peaceful solution website, she would not have killed herself. That pricked my ears, so that night, I went to the peaceful solution website and to this day, I am very glad I did..

If you are at a point in your life where you are considering suicide, STOP and THINK. You are greater than your problems, greater than your hurts, greater than your pain and disappointments. SUICIDE IS PERMANENT. PROBLEMS ARE TEMPORARY. It’s true, our hurts and disappointments are temporary, and we can with time, diligence and effort make positive changes, or better yet put them completely out of our lives.

Overcoming suicidal thoughts can be done by first realizing that your life has purpose, because regardless of what you are experiencing, your life still has meaning and potential. Overcoming adversity only makes you stronger and more capable. Who knows, by resisting the urge to take your own life, you can someday be in a position to help someone else that is in pain, like you are now. There are many other ways you can touch the lives of others, but you have to be here and see it through. Don’t give up. There is an answer.

Although you might feel isolated, ignored, unheard or unloved, always know that there are people who are willing to listen and care, but you have to reach out to them. Do not downplay your feelings. Speak up, enough to be heard. Whether it is your mother, father, friend or counselor, find that trusted person who cares and then pour out your feelings of hurt, humiliation, helplessness, or whatever you might be feeling. Make sure they understand how you feel and why you feel that way.

Oh, by the way, that website is www.peacefulsolution.org. I learned that you can change your outlook on life by reading, studying and practicing the Peaceful Solution Character Education Program.

When life hands you lemons, make lemonade

Lemonade Anyone?

We have all heard the old adage, “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade”, but the question is do you know the recipe? How exactly do you turn life’s struggles and disappointments into something positive? The answer is the Peaceful Solution Character Education Program.

Although, there are many pitfalls and curveballs that life can send your way, today you will be primarily learning about how to positively handle rejection. Why, you might ask? Well, rejection is simply a part of life. There are many different types of rejection, some of which include:

  •   Relationship rejection
  •   Job related rejection
  •   Societal rejection

Rejection is painful and when it is not handled with positive moral character it can easily lead to depression, a lack of self-respect and even the decision to engage in risky behavior. Sometimes things don’t turn out the way you want them to, and as hard as that may be to accept, it really is just a part of life. The most important thing is to find ways to deal with rejection that will not cause you to feel depressed, or cause you to hurt yourself or others. (Acceptance Unit, page 65)

So, how does rejection make you feel? Some of the emotions and feelings that one may experience include, sadness or disappointment, one may feel unloved, unneeded or even ashamed.
Here are some points to remember when dealing with rejection:

  1.  Understand that regardless of life’s struggles, you are valuable, loved and needed. Don’t beat up yourself about something that you have no control over! (Acceptance Unit, page 3)
  2.  Be forgiving – realize that not everyone has learned The Peaceful Solution Character Education Program yet. Make the choice to practice the positive character trait of forgiveness if they have intentionally excluded you. In doing so, you will set a great example for others.
  3. Learn from the experience – take it as a lesson learned by focusing your efforts on improving yourself using the principles contained in the Peaceful Solution Character Education Program. Be satisfied in knowing you are the most moral person you can be!
  4. As important as friends and feeling accepted are, what is even more important is to make choices that show respect for yourself and others. (Acceptance Unit, page 69)

So, when life hands you sour lemons and you are struggling to handle them, remember this equation:

Rejection + Positive Character + Effort = Success in Turning Life’s Lemons into Sweet Lemonade.

Simple Solutions to Stop Bullying

Most people can share at least one experience in their lives where they were bullied or saw someone else being bullied. It is a proven fact that some people enjoy hurting others. The reason for this is that they have not been taught how to develop a positive, moral character.

There are simple solutions to put an end to bullying in schools across the nation, and in society as a whole. When these solutions are followed people can enjoy peace and safety, and have positive relationships that can last a lifetime.

  • If you are a bully think about your actions.
  • Realize that hurting others is cruel and unacceptable behavior.
  • Teasing, picking on, or physically causing injury to someone can affect the individual for a lifetime and does not build a positive reputation for the bully.
  • All people, no matter the age, social status, culture, or religion, desire and deserve to be treated with respect.
  • Every human being has value and the potential to succeed in life.
  • If you witness bullying do not stand around watching, but get help immediately.
  • Then proceed to learn the name and address of the bullies and request a copy of the Peaceful Solution Character Education Program on bullying.
  • If you are friends with someone who chooses to hurt others and you go along with it, not reporting it, then you are guilty by association.
  • If you are being bullied make every effort to never retaliate. Two wrongs do not make it right. Be determined to handle the situation in a non-violent manner.

Think Of The Consequences

You have blown your top, or you feel like blowing your top. The proverbial smoke is pouring from your ears and your fists are curled into a ball. Oh, Oh! Your mild sense of aggravation has blossomed into outright rage.

Will blowing your top accomplish what you desire to accomplish out of this situation, or any situation? Obviously something occurred that caused the upset.

Your desire should be to remain a leader. How you handle any problem can either lift you up or bring you down. You can in every case bring yourself up as being the solver of each and every problem if you follow this simple lesson and develop self-control.

With self-control you can make a choice even when you feel upset or angry. You do not have to sink into the depths of saying or doing something, out of rage, that you will only regret once you have calmed down.

Self-control helps you to stop the progression of anger long enough to choose to handle it appropriately. Yes, you can handle anger appropriately so that it does not turn to rage. Here are a few tips:

  1. Keep in mind that anger that is out of control, can lead to dangerous choices. So your main goal is to stay in control.
  2. Understand that anger and what we do when we are angry is a choice. The old, “I was so angry I didn’t know what I was doing”, is only an excuse. We are accountable for our actions whether we are angry or not.
  3. Know your anger cues: rapid breathing, and increased heart rate, should be a red flag. These cues should immediately send you into self-control mode. Self-control is to stop and think about your options and then proceed with a right choice. A right choice does not cause harm or hurt to yourself, others, or property (No, slamming the phone down and rendering it into four pieces is not acceptable)
  4. When you feel these anger cues it is time to STOP your anger progression. THINK about the consequences of your actions. Are you at work? Could venting your rage in your work environment cost you your job? Are you at school? Could venting your rage at school result in suspension or expulsion? Could someone be hurt or property destroyed because of your rage? Could your angry outbursts cause you to lose your self-respect? Really take the time to ask yourself these questions and THINK of truthful answers. Don’t downplay the consequences that can result from one bad choice.
  5. Once you have thought it through proceed with a right choice. Yes, you can experience moments of extreme frustration, aggravation and even rage and come out smelling like a rose. Try practicing self-control it really does work.

Yes you can experience moments of extreme frustration, aggravation and even rage and come out smelling like a rose. Try practicing self-control. It really does work.
