Never the solution

Life is already as short as it is, which is why we need to see it as a precious gift that we all need to cherish and appreciate. We live in a world where not only a person is in danger due to all kinds of circumstances, but we also live in a society who is always judging, criticizing those who are different. People are pushed to such extremes that they no longer see any possible solution to their problems to soothe their pain. Suicide is the third leading cause of death amongst youth of our age and for every 15-suicide attempt, one succeed in taking their own life away. I am writing this text today, to tell you that suicide is never an option and never a solution.

But what causes these people to feel pushed to act this way? Often, suicide is caused by bullying, peer pressure, and cyberbullying. Some people suffer from continuous harsh and degrading bullying which makes them consider suicide as the easiest plan.

Does this sound normal to you? That someone would consider harming themselves in order to stop the pain caused by others?

I am writing this today, to make you think about your families and friends. If you experience any suicidal thoughts please seek help. Seek help for all those who love you and want to keep cherishing you. I want all of you to keep in mind that suicide is never an option and should never be considered one. “Suicide doesn’t end the chances of life getting worse, it eliminated the possibility of it ever getting any better.” Your life is worth living, please give it a chance.
