Tutor description

One reason for writing about his death is to make one aware of some of the potential signs that a person is contemplating suicide. I can honestly say we are not aware of, nor did we see, any signs in our son's death. I say that from a somewhat unique perspective and let me share a bit of my background. When I was 17, I'm 62 now, I use to go on the weekends to our state mental hospital in Raleigh, N.C., Dorothea Dix Hospital to volunteer to work with the patients. It was one of the grandest mental health facilities in the U.S. The patients worked, all who could had their own small garden and the hospital itself was fairly self sufficient using patient labor to stay clean and keeping the patients working. I would go on the weekends since I had a full time job and was in school full time. I had dreams of one day becoming a psychiatrist and wanted to learn more. Of course the real reason was to understand myself better, and what a wonderful way to learn while helping others.

How many people do you know, who stop to think what the power of positive thinking means?The following story illustrates how this power works.Allan applied for a new job, but as his self-esteem was low, and he considered himself as a failure and unworthy of success, he was sure that he was not going to get the job.
