Not being able to kill myself.
Everything in life went wrong. I was working at a dead end job. I lost my lover. I was betrayed. I was sleeping on a sofa. I had nothing. I was completely defeated. I didn’t want tomorrow to ever come again. I thought that life just couldn’t get any better and I was going to end up being a failure for good. I couldn’t even fathom my life getting better.
I was so certain that my life was hopeless that I bought life insurance. My insurance policy to make sure my family would have the financial resources to move forward if I had decided to go again. My two year suicide clause ended January this year.
Then it seems, I was completely wrong. As now my life has turned completely around.
