You may not see the changes in yourself but I can tell you one for sure, and that is your level of endurance is remarkable! Endurance is born from the painful experiences you are enduring in this period of your life. It isn't easy, my friend, but allow it and it will be the making of you.
See how resilient you are. See how strong you are. See how passionate you are. Know that you are sharing this experience with millions of others, many of whom will take their own lives as many have. You can become a leader out of this darkness through your own life experience.
Make no mistake. You are no wilting violet. You have no need of positive affirmations. The truth of you will do very nicely.
