If you are someone battling depression, or it had grown to the level of which you wish to ease your pains, wherein you no longer feel alive or connected to the world of the mortals, when you look at the world and believe all hope is lost, or you feel too broken by the reason of a stigma you you believe will or had turned the world against you, or you get betrayed by whoever you have loved or trusted even with your life and soul, or you find it difficult to continue to struggle with the situations of life while all your efforts seem to always go down the drain; Or you are under a kind of feeling of pressure wherein you feel your efforts are not being appreciated or ignored while you gave your all, I want you to know that GOD understands your kind of pains. I also as a victim fighting for survival very much feel what you are going through even though I may not be able to help much. But what I want you to know is that there are solutions to every problems, but the inability to find or locate these solutions at the right time we expected them are what makes us think there are never any solutions anywhere. Therefore, before you ever consider or attempt suicide, I want you to think of those you will hurt by your demise. Think of your loved ones. Think of the tears you will bring to your whole family, friends, neighbours, acquaintances, coworkers and all those who surrounds you. Even those hypocrites who never gave a damn about you will come to say good words about you all in the name of eulogy/dirge. That is about those you would leave behind. Now think about yourself. Think of yourself wishing to wake up again but all the struggle to wake up is now impossible. You jerk vigorously at your body, tried to open your eyes but you couldn't. You wished and cried and crave someone shake your body perhaps you could wake up but neither could your voice not your cries be heard by the living any longer. Think of it that, what if after you killed yourself is when your solution comes around? So do not kill yourself. Suicide is not an option. It has never been an option. It brings with it no solution, rather, it makes you end up being an unrepentant killer, which has no method of forgiveness before GOD. Instead, talk to GOD about your issues. Try to see true men of GOD who can join in the fight for your freedom. Also, try talking about your problems/issues to someone who you know will understand you. GOD wants you to approach Him the right way through prayer that He might help you out. Just as in one of my comments on this platform, reacting to a lady who committed suicide, and I quote: > I used to lash out at whoever I heard committed suicide until I found myself in that evil shoes, then my view about them changed from disgust to pity and sadness whenever I read someone committed suicide. I wish she got the help she needed on time. I wish she got the strength she needed to keep fighting on. I wish there was someone who could have stopped her and just say, "You'll be fine." I wish there was just one person to always cheer her up whenever she felt depressed again, because not everyone has the strength to overcome depression. Every depressed person appears cool, fine and healthy, but believe me, they're dying slowly from within. I know these, because I'm there, but I'll overcome mine…. Though going to 15 years now…. But I will overcome it. I believe I'll overcome it. Wherein many reacted to it, yes. Many wished me well and I really really did appreciated them all. But I noticed two people reached out, while another offered to to give a listening ear. There is no harm being a brother's keeper, which I have seen in many members on this forum. But yet, among whom I still see the people behind the monikers as lovely and caring people due of their level of understanding and how much they're willing to lend a hand out even if their hands cannot reach out to you physically, their words did, which I really appreciate their kind gesture. Cooljul, Gentlebuka and AbbynHummy. Even though I have never met them before, which I can't but mention their moniker. May GOD bless you all. Therefore, you never can tell whose heart just some caring words can heal. I know I'll survive it despite counting years over a decade. And I believe you reading this too, who have been contemplating suicide can make it too. You can survive it too. You can beat that pressure to end your pains by transiting to the other realm by force. I've been fighting and I believe I'll overcome by the grace of GOD and the support of His Holy Spirit. Which I believe you can do too. So you must not give up either. Trying times comes. Yes! They sometimes last for so long which made us feel or conclude there is no more way(s) out. But if you can try giving it the patient it requires, ignoring whatever anyone might be saying to make you feel more miserable, and hence damage the broken you from within, if you can ignore whatever they do or say against you, you will be fine. Just keep that thought of ending your pains by transition to the other realm dead from your head amd heart. You will one day be fine. Suicide is never an escape route dearie. It's never been and would never be. Therefore, don't do it. Please, don't do it. Don't commit suicide. Don't end you. Don't off you. GOD loves and cares for you.
