Depression (say no to suicide)

 

I have noticed that recently there has been an increase in the rate of suicide and it saddens me a lot hearing that people take their lives due to depression .

A friend of mine even told me that he never really felt the “suicide talk” until his neighbor committed suicide and I was like what???.. Your neighbor?.. He said he felt so hurt especially because the man had a wife and children, so why should he take his life and we continued talking about it and so on, it was a discussion I enjoyed because I was able to share some of my thoughts about it, which I will share with you all today.

Sometimes we hear about suicide and some people just think it doesn’t really happen in my country (Nigeria) but I tell you it does. Depression is really a bad thing. Sometimes we get depressed (I have gotten depressed too) and at that point different thoughts start coming to your mind(although I have never thought of killing myself maybe because the depression was minimal) but sometimes it’s sad to hear when people take their lives due to suicide.  When a person is depressed, no good thought comes to your mind, You just feel like the world is ending, like there’s no solution at all(in fact I can’t really put the feeling in words) .

Let’s take this scenario:
A man working for the government  is married with children and all of a sudden, government doesn’t pay salary for 6 months and his wife is a full house wife, how will he cater for his family, how will he send his children to school.. As a man, he might not really want to beg people (some men are like that). He might say I can handle it on my own or even if he begs people, hardly  is there anyone to help him(people are actually selfish in this world and it’s very bad). At that point, he’s out of his mind, he doesn’t even know what to do. He has failed his responsibility as a father, he might start thinking there’s no use living again, what do they need him for when he’s not useful. Then he decides to take his life forgetting at the point that his family will surely need him even if he doesn’t fulfill his responsibility at that point. Now he’s gone, everyone is sad.The most annoying part is that Those people that didn’t help him even when they could will cry?? (Some people are so heartless)it is really annoying. The man is gone, no amount of tears can bring him back. If they had helped, he might not have been dead…That was just an example of depression that led to suicide and there are lots and even worse depression that leads to suicide.

KEY POINTS I want you all to take note of:

**NO MATTER THE KIND OF DEPRESSION YOU ARE GOING THROUGH,SUICIDE IS NEVER AN OPTION.
**Never think of taking your life,when there’s life there’s hope!

  1. If you can help anyone in anyway, be of help PLEASE! You never know whose life you are saving and Your reward might not come now but it surely will!
  2. When You are depressed please, I beg you!! Learn to talk, learn to open up to people. You never know who can be of help.
    Research has shown that males commit suicide more and females “attempt” to commit suicide more… What does this imply?
    It implies that males commit suicide more because when they get depressed, they hold it in, they believe they can handle it alone. They don’t want to tell people who might be able to help them(I call it pride or ego and sometimes it can be really annoying). On the other hand, females attempt to commit suicide but they don’t. They don’t because they let it out, they tell people who will help them by encouraging them and so on, so In that sense, committing suicide is prevented because they opened up…
    Now all I am saying what is my point?
    My point whether you are a male or female, especially males, learn to open up, it helps a lot!! Stop that pride or ego or what Ever you guys call it. If you need help, speak! If someone hurt you, talk! Let them know.***I know sometimes you get depressed and you don’t even know how to put it in words not to talk to telling people or you don’t trust anyone, feel free to talk to God, he loves EVERYONE and he will surely hear you and also read your bible, it helps a lot(speaking from experience).
  3. Let’s Learn to show love to people around us. Love is an action word, it’s not just about saying it, it’s about showing it, doing it in the little way we can. I am saying this because some people get depressed because they don’t feel “love”. People say they love them but they don’t feel it and since they don’t, they think no one loves them and they might take their life.

P. S Please let’s try and find time to check up on people, you never know what they are going through.

  11. Woah! I’m really digging the template/theme of this site.
    It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s difficult
    to get that “perfect balance” between usability and
    visual appeal. I must say that you’ve done a superb job with this.
    In addition, the blog loads extremely quick for me on Safari.
    Excellent Blog!

    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my experience
    and views online. Please let me know if you have any recommendations or tips for new
    aspiring bloggers. Thankyou!
