About six years ago my outlook...

About six years ago my outlook on life and people had become so filled with hate, malice, and bitterness that I was losing weight and was unable to sleep at night. I decided the only way out was to commit suicide. This decision had been given much deliberation.

Final plans were being made when one night there came to me quite clearly a thought to the effect of these words of Mrs. Eddy's from page 291 of Science andHealth: "As death findeth mortal man, so shall he be after death, until probation and growth shall effect the needed change."

This truth destroyed my plans, as they were based on the erroneous assumption that I would he taken out of an unpleasant situation. Also the truth of this statement was so clear that I wondered where I had heard this thought expressed before. It was several minutes before realized that had been taught this while attending a Christian Science Sunday School as a young child and again for a period during high school.
