So, I’ve recently looked into the Golden Gate Bridge suicides quite a lot and the stories of the victims, and it’s something that’s really really touched me… For those of you who don’t know, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco is the world’s most popular suicide site, with many people jumping off to their deaths every year… I’ve looked at some absolutely heart-breaking suicide footage too and I’ve got a new dream that I thought I should share with you all :)
Basically, I hope that one day, whether I find myself living in the USA in the future or not, I want to do my own ‘Bridge Patrol’ for a month… This is just a dream remember, not a promise of any sort! But I’m sure I could make it work!!
On average, at least 2 people commit suicide off the bridge each month and it would be the most amazing feeling to think that I’ve actually saved someone’s life or even given them a small shred of hope to keep them going. I don’t know exactly how I would go about it… Maybe by looking out for anyone straying close to the railings and giving them a smile, or spotting someone who looks alone and wandering and striking up a conversation… I don’t know, but it’s worth a try, right?
I mean I’m still at school now and I have years of education ahead of me before I can even think of doing this. By then the suicide numbers may have gone up or down and many lives will be lost during that time… But if I get there and if I can do it, boy will I be happy :D hehehe
So just something I thought I’d share with you, my lovelies! If there’s anything you want to ask me, don’t be afraid! I’m always here to listen :)
Much love and stay strong ♥ xx
When you go outside or even look outside your window, make it a point to find something to smile at my lovelies. Even if it’s just a flower you’ve never noticed before in your garden, try and find some beauty in the world around you :)
This way we’ll soon learn to see that even in the darkest of times there’s always something beautiful in life to smile about, no matter how insignificant it may seem! Be positive and look beyond the obvious pain to find some hope to carry your forward!
I promise you my lovelies, life is most certainly worth living and although it might not seem like it, there are definitely definitely better times ahead if you just hang in there a little bit longer!
Stay strong and remember that you are AMAZING!!! ♥ xx
