Thanks so much...the lyrics were cool and a great outreach for the young and really any age...very well written and positive!
To the person who said suicide is not selfish, I respectfully disagree. I had a cousin who committed suicide because he had a mental illness messing with his mind. He didn't want to to take his meds. He went to my uncle's house and after my uncle told my cousin he was going to get him back to the mental health center for help for recovery cause my cousin was freaking out cause he didn't want people thinking he was crazy, my cousin went upstairs and put a gun to his head oblilerating all he could have been. I used to be like a little sister to him. I looked up to him. To this day, and it's been almost 20 years, I cry when I think about how he took his own life. Sadly, suicide and drug overdoses have been a normal occurance on my dad and even one on my mom's side of the family. They left behind people who feel pain through their actions. Now I get people in that much pain they don't think straight, especially if they have the burden of a mental illness. I know for a fact they don't think right cause, like Scott, I too have sunk into a horrendous depression (various times in my life) but the last time was the worst. I would barely get out of bed. I put on like 20 pounds. I didn't give a crap about my life, didn't think God had a purpose for me really. After a while, and with the help of my Lord and family supporting my decision, I got up and took my butt to the local mental health place. Found out I'm bipolar, and now I am on two mood stabilizers to help me. So far, thank God, they are working for me. My point is that I too, like Scott, have been through the hell in my mind, and strangely enough, now I have discovered my purpose cause of the pain I suffered. God said He will take everything that was meant for our harm and use it for our good. I have told Him plenty of times that I know He's gonna take all the things that brought me down and use it for good purposes. I know in my heart He will. Life is hard. For some, it's even harder than it seems like others face, at least from what we see on the outside of them. But nobody gets out of this life without going through pain. God, our Creator, never promised life would be easy, but He does tell us He will be there during the bad times too if we as Him to and I think He still sends each of us blessings even when we don't ask. Like for those who don't talk to Him, He still sends the sunshine to them too. Scott made excellent points. I totally get what he's saying. I also believe we shouldn't let the enemy take OUR life away from us. We were made to serve God and we do that by loving Him and each other. Our purpose will be made known to us, but something that valuable isn't easily made known unless we go through adversity cause how can we be passionate about our purpose unless we didn't have the struggle to gain it? Can't see the rainbow without the rain. People listen to us when they know we can relate to them. Otherwise, why would they trust what we have to say. Scott said we can't lead men without leading ourselves first (paraphrase) . He's right. Gotta take care of yourself before you can take care of others. His awesome rymes say it well. I think he put his honest self out there, and that's admirable he shared it with us. That can be so difficult to do.
Very good. Could relate to everything. Favorite phrase is " success is the best revenge..."
I have really bad depresion issues and i read this book and has helped me. my parents never cared about me my father left when i was little my mom lets my stepdad beat me and i just didnt know what to do but this book and my friends helped me stay alive when i got depresed
I liked the part that said the devil attacks important people. The ones that have an important mission....something to give. And it also reiterated the selfisfhness of suicide. You only pass your depression on to others. Thanks for sharing this part of your heart. Godd bless you!
Whats selfish is hurting someone so bad that they CHOOSE to end it all
