If You Leave – The Daily Post Prompt – finally found it

If You Leave

Life is a series of beginnings and endings. We leave one job to start another; we quit cities, countries, or continents for a fresh start; we leave lovers and begin new relationships. What was the last thing you contemplated leaving? What were the pros and cons? Have you made up your mind? What will you choose?


I contemplated leaving this earth 3 years ago. I was terribly unhappy, in terrible pain and no one could do anything about it. So I did. Luckily I didn’t succeed. Being hospitalized was no fun. I was thrown in with the people who tried to hurt others not just the attempted suicides. Who wants to trust going to sleep with dangerous strangers. A little rough for me and I spent a good bit of time crying.

I promised my family and friends I would not do that again.

And I promised God I would not do it again, that I would be here to help him with his plans for me.


About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    I checked out in other ways.. not good choices..But I have come around and seek God for my decision making. Our Father collects our tears in a bottle..He has a plan and purpose for us and it is good. Now we can share our testimony and encourage one another.. I thank Him for each day.
