@suemeilee giving a hug is the first and foremost thing that i will do to at least calm her/him and give the assurance that i do also care. secondly, i will share to her/him God's goodness and importance of life that we all should be thankful for and giving emphasis that others have been wanting to live longer, thus, we should value life. assure that she/he is loved and has a purpose in life based on what God's mission. and, lastly, encourage to seek for medical advice or professional advice so that she/he will open up further what made her/him behave like that. hope these will help and save lives.posted in Mental Health

RE: What should I do if someone came up to me to say that they are at the brink of committing suicide?

RE: Begging - to give or not to give? That is the dilemmaI do give to the poor and the sick but i do not perpetuate begging. When I see beggars but still do have a physique like an athlete, then, I really do not give any dime, but, when I see aged people I usually give alms and food as it automatically resonates in me the feeling that they are neglected by their loved ones. And, at times young children who rode on jeepneys (here in the Philippines), I don't give money but gave biscuits/bread instead. But, one great Filipino culture we have is giving without complaints the ethnic groups who usually came down from the mountains during Christmas time when they came house to house asking for food, clothes, blankets, bags, cooking pot, etc.posted in The Better Traveller

RE: Sometimes it only takes a stranger, in a dark place… to make us warm in the coldest seasonIt is has been said, that journey is always better when it is shared for focusing only on ourselves will not reveal our life's purpose. Strangers it may seem, but, they were God-sent Angels as channel of blessings for you to see His goodness and great mercy.posted in Mental Health
RE: Are you a caregiver or know someone who is one?@Mai-Tatoy Having experienced to have cared with this concern is very challenging and hearth breaking in the sense that you don't know how to stop the tears from falling and the every minute anticipation of a happy curve in its face. But, through prayers and total surrender to our Almighty God, He leads us to people who can help us. Therefore, the untiring support of the family in whatever way possible is the key to total healing.posted in Mental Health
