Jannike lay down on the railroad tracks

Episode 13,  Dec 21, 2018, 08:00 AM

Just 4 years ago, Jannike felt like a total failure. She had problems in many areas of her life, and saw no solutions. The only way out, it seemed to her, was to end her life. She wrote farewell letters to her family. Then, late one night, she found a railroad track to lie down on, and waited for the next train. Today, she is happy with life because of a couple of things that made the difference.

Four years ago, Jannike felt like a failure in every area of her life. She could not envision her circumstances getting any better, so she made the decision to end her life.

She wrote good-bye letters to her siblings and her four children, then she went out after dark one night, found a railroad track to lie down on, and waited for the next train.

Today, she’s a much happier person and loves her life.

In our conversation, Jannike told me about that night on the train track, why her life did not end then, and what she did to overcome her problem and become someone who enjoys each day.

You can see pictures of her, as well as lots of other thought-provoking content, on my Instagram, which is @whatwasthatlike.
