How Can It Possibly Help ?
Can They Really Help You
Over the Phone ?
Sometimes it's hard to admit...
that we need other people.
Sometimes depression & suicidal thoughts contain a component of upset & anger towards the world & the people in it.
But the truth is, nothing can really substitute for human contact - we do need people.
The truth is, just talking to someone, explaining, sharing, venting, being listened to, can often give us a temporary reprieve.
Talking to someone can temporarily change your perspective - Human contact changes the brain chemistry & opens that emotion "pod" of pent up emotions for temporary relief - and it may not be what they say, but just the exchange of emotions like empathy, compassion, & concern.
Will they cure us - no.
Will they take the pain away ?
Maybe ease it for a little while.
