It is very difficult to believe in the greatness of life from where you are right now, but you must have the courage to persevere and believe that this pain you are in is but a stepping stone on your journey towards reconnecting with the whole and being in the state of joy. Look for beauty within you and outside and you will find it. Every situation is different, and you must find your inner light to guide you out of the darkness.
When I was on the brink of taking my life, I found the courage not to hurt my family and friends who loved me and relied on me. Later I discovered that I have the power to help others and to change their lives for the better, and I decided that the type of person who quits on their purpose is exactly the opposite of what I stand for and who I am. But again, you must feel this shift of consciousness for yourself, from your own perspective. You will find no easy answers here. You will find the greatest source of power, and equally large source of resistance all within yourself. The decision is yours whether and how to overcome your resistance.
There are "conventional" ways to temporarily solve your problem with SSRIs, but be careful with them, as they may leave you in a state of greater confusion. Professionals in that field will be of better advice if you choose to go that route.
Good luck, and never give up!
