Suicide is an escape from facing and dealing with the issues present in one’s life.
In many cases, suicide does seem easier than exerting energy and feeling the pain that is likely to come about from dealing with baggage, regrets, un-forgiveness, trauma, hopeless circumstances, and heavy emotions that seem better off buried, forgotten, and ignored.
The foundation of suicide is built on fear, lack of self-worth, and avoidance. When people say that people who killed themselves are “weak”, it is not entirely false. It takes strength (even an ounce) to live this life that, at times, can be filled with hurt, despair, and disappointment.
There are so many people in this world — not even mentioning the people who are dear to us — who have struggled with depression and suicide. Thankfully the people I know who have struggled with this situation have been spared and are actively facing their issues and monitoring their mental, emotional, and spiritual health.
Before you give into suicide, ask yourself some of the following questions:
1. What am I choosing not to face (what am I trying to run away from)?
2. Is suicide a reasonable solution?
3. Who can I call, see, or talk to to get help and encouragement from right now?
4. What am I allowing to make me feel like my life is worth nothing?
Remember, your life is priceless. Even if it does not seem like it, your life is worth living, you’ve just lost perspective.
