Let's start with a background story... There is an obstacle course at this camp, and I'm not sure what it all is because I never got past the second obstacle, but it looked really cool. Anyways, the second obstacle was just a bunch of tree stumps you had to walk across. The pants I was wearing that day were kinda baggy, and I kept almost tripping on them as I begin to walk across. My friends who were with me kept offering their help, lending me a hand, but I refused because I wanted to do it by myself. Of course, klutzy me, I did end up tripping on my pants and whacked my left shin on the stump ahead of me. Yeah, it hurt. It hurt a lot, and I was kinda freaked out. I had kinda lifted my pant leg to look, and all I saw was white where I had hit it, so I was a bit worried I had scraped down to my bone, which isn't entirely impossible. I did keep calm though, and sent one of my friends to get our pastor, then she went to get someone who could carry me to the dining hall. My leg was pretty swollen, and it hurt to even walk, and it left a pretty good scar.
Anyways, my point is, that night we had a worship night, and I began to realise that I was living my life just how I was walking across those stumps. I was going through life kinda tripping a bit here and there, and God was always there wanting to lend a hand but I didn't want His help because I thought I could do it by myself. And I realised that if I kept going like that through life, I was going to get seriously hurt. It was that weekend when I started reaching out to Karen, eventually getting to the point where I was able to tell her I was suicidal.
Can't get much life-changing than that... =)
