Depression and suicidal thoughts are two of the most frightening things a person can face in their lifetime. Unfortunately, acting on those suicidal thoughts is a far too common scenario for many across the world, including students. In fact, suicide is the second-leading cause of death for those between the ages of 15 and 18.
Nowadays, whenever things aren’t working out the way you like them too, we think that if we kill ourselves all of our grievances will be over. Let it be the issue of not doing well in school or to have some sort of a financial crises at home, jumping off of the cliff or strangling ourselves from the ceiling fan seems the most easiest way will thats because its easy to give up, and to run away from your problems. But let me at least tell you this, the path thats the easiest isn’t always the best option to take. These hardships are the things that make us who we are, these are the things that make us stronger. So man up (sorry if you’re a girl. I mean it’s just a phrase) and try to solve the problem instead of running.
Life is like a game, if you have the patience you will succeed and level up one day, but if u are to give up now, how on earth will you ever learn to get through any of the obstacles that life throws at you. I am no expert but there is always a choice, it’s just that you have to trust yourself and not give up.
I hate to say this, time really does heals everything, it gives you the patience u want and then the pain starts to fade away. You have to move on in life. I know it’s easier said than done, but at least you have to try and not let your past rule your present, and destroy your future.
I know it’s a lot easier said than done because at that time you might feel trapped, isolated. But than look at the pain and terror hidden in the eyes of your loved one. I can’t even imagine what a parent must feel, to see their child going through this pain.
Just don’t let this make you someone that you don’t deserve to be, because you know what, smiling is contagious and is not really considered a crime. Plus we are only given one life so let’s make the most from it. Please just don’t give up on your dreams that you once dreamt, don’t give up on your loved ones that easily
