Letter - Suicide is not a solution – seek assistance
Top of a Page

George Sand once said, “We cannot tear out a single page of our life, but we can throw the whole book in the fire.” 

The news of young people in our country committing suicide is now on higher level. 

Students are committing suicide, which is becoming everyday news. 

Suicide is not a solution to the problems, but a problem on top of others. 

Suicide is not an answer; it is a destruction – just remember the reason why you held on for so long. 

Dear students, we are making our lives difficult ourselves. The question is, why do you have to commit suicide? Why?

Life is full of ups and downs, and we have problems circulating among us. Depression is dancing with our lives, but remember, in life, nothing is going to come from an easy path. 

All things are difficult before they become easy. Family members may ignore you or distance themselves from you; friends may move away from you, but don’t ever lose hope of what you are striving to achieve. Pray to God; seek for assistance; find the trusted friends, church leaders/counsellors or social workers – and share your problems with them.

Life can be so unfair and discouraging a times. Battles and loads may be so heavy to carry and fight, but our God is an overcomer. I am pretty sure we have enemies; some people don’t like you at all, but suicidal thoughts should not be your focus. Let some things go and focus on your own life. 

People might come to you with negativities, with a reason to discourage you, but never lose hope. Let’s stay strong and fight our own battles. 

You might think the phrase ‘stay strong’, has become an anthem or a cliché – but honestly speaking, when we say stay strong, we truly care for you, and not giving you another motivational speech. 

Life is a mixture of good and bad, but put in mind that every challenge has a lesson and every success is a gift. Think of all the good times, recollect positive moments, and talk to people whose company you enjoy. 

Make a commitment to take care of yourself. Our real blessings often appear to us in the shape of pains, losses and disappointments, but let us have patience – and we shall soon see them in their proper figures. Those who are deeply depressed and considering suicide usually have difficulty realising their life can get better. 

The aforementioned author Matt Haig is a great example. He was about to kill himself – but now, he has a successful career and a loving family. If you choose suicide, then you’re eliminating future hope and the possibility of finding happiness and enjoyment.  Stop worrying, it is going to be okay. Close those eyes and pray!

Though an army encamps around and against you, your heart shall not be afraid – even though war shall rise up against you, you shall put your trust in the Lord! Why? He is the rock of ages, the ancient of days, and your salvation. Let us be strong; seek assistance from social workers or other relevant offices. 

Do it, even though it is not easy; one day you will celebrate with tears of joy. Finish what you have started, encourage yourself and have faith in your self. Never give up. It is not over. The universe is balanced. Every setback bear with it the seeds of a comeback. No matter how stressed you are, God will do something to make you happy. Be humble.

Hope is a necessity for normal life and the major weapon against the suicide impulse. Believe in yourself and all that you are. Know that there is something inside you that is greater than any obstacle.
