"Still Here" takes you on the journey of a man who struggled with depression and suicide throughout his life. He shares his experiences and gives tips to help anyone struggling with these same experiences. I suggest readers keep an open mind and be honest with themselves as they read this book. I felt encouraged by the author's positive advice. For example, someone who "attempts" suicide is not a failure - they are an "attempt survivor". Deep down inside suicide is not what anyone wants.
The author goes on to suggest that suicidal thoughts can upset you emotionally because that is not the real you. People with suicidal thoughts are not crying for help they are crying for love. What a wonderful positive inspiration to give someone who has dark thoughts - give them love. This seems so simple. The author introduces six keys to loving life. He offers them in the hopes that readers can relate to at least one or even several of these keys to realize there are many more options and choices in life to choose other than suicide.
I encourage anyone who is having suicidal thoughts and struggling with daily depression to get this book, sit down and relax with a highlighter, and read and re-read while marking all the positive points that have touched you. There are tools and free resources for readers to use throughout their lives and not just during the dark times. Get out of that safe zone. Don't be afraid to live!
Review by Monica McDaniel for eBook Review Gal.
It's a rare occurrence for me to purchase a book and read it from cover to cover within 24 hours of purchasing it. Here's the backstory, a post via Andy Grant caught my eye on Google+ announcing the launch of his newest ebook, Still Here: How To Succeed At Life After Failing At Suicide. The title instantly captured my attention, his heartfelt words connected with my soul and I was moved to order the book immediately.
I just finished reading it and I am filled with gratitude, for so many reasons. Having lost my dear sister friend to depression resulting in suicide a little over a year ago, and also dealing with depression myself, I can totally relate to the roller coaster of emotions we, as human beings, experience in this life and the need to nurture our mindset on a daily basis.
As Andy states in the quote above, the Power of Thought is one of the greatest gifts in our possession. With this gift we have the power to create our reality, and that is an innate desire we all have in common.
Yet, despite having the power to choose our thoughts, at some point in our life's journey, we all deal with limiting beliefs, sadness, grief, depression, and perhaps even suicide…
Regardless of the level or degree to which we have personally dealt with any of these feelings, the fact remains that ultimately we desire to feel and live happier and more fulfilled lives. If you agree, this book will serve you well. It sure has served me well.
One of my favorite quotes by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. says, "Our lives begin to end the day we stop talking about things that matter."
Thank YOU Andy for choosing to speak out loud about an epidemic that is costing way too many lives.
Thank YOU for choosing to be exactly who you were designed to be.
Thank YOU for reminding me, and soooo many others, that we are beautifully human, we are not alone, and we are Still Here.
Andy has been through it all. Suicide attempts and depression. He knows what it's like to struggle every day, and he knows what must be done to turn one's life around.
This book contains the most important tips and methods that Andy has used to defeat his problems. Whether you or anyone you know is suffering from depression or suicide thoughts, or is influenced by those two things in any way - you will find help in this book.
You will learn to be more positive and to see the world in brighter colors. You will learn how to apply numerous mental tricks and online resources to make the journey go more smoothly and more effectively.
The book is well written in a great, casual, blunt tone that makes it feel like Andy is right there, helping you out.
There are a few typos here and there and some minor formatting issues, but those do not detract from the message.
Well worth reading!
