The Subject of Suicide 

Suicide is a hard subject for some people to talk about. Different people have their own varying opinions on suicide. Some people think that if a person commits suicide, then they’re being selfish or a coward. Sometimes this can turn out to be correct. There are evil people who have committed suicide in order to avoid being taken to prison to be punished for the crimes that they have committed. That’s a selfish way. But it’s sometimes not because of that. Some people commit suicide due to other reasons. 

Some people commit suicide in order to escape the tight grip of depression. Depression can be a brutal mental illness. I know because I suffer from depression myself. Depression can cause people to be down on themselves about anything going on in their life. A breakup can be devastating or someone dying can cause depression. These events can have a hard impact on someone suffering from depression.

I know that some people with depression aren’t vocal about it. There’s nothing to be ashamed of. But that doesn’t work for all people. Some people are afraid to reach out due to what they think other people will think of them, which there are some people who don’t know how to help someone with depression. The best thing to do is to listen to the person who needs help and cheer them up. Remind them why this life is worth living and to pursue their dreams that they have. Let them know that they’re not alone.

All people need to watch what they say. Any words can damage any soul. If there’s no nice words for anyone to say, then they need to stay hidden. There’s no need to shatter someone’s soul. I’ve seen people who aren’t afraid to talk about depression be the same exact people to say something foul that would hurt a person’s feelings. We got to learn to work together or there won’t be anything such as inner peace.

  1. You are correct Jordon!!! Depression is the devil and so many of us suffer from it!!! It can cause you to stay in bed for days not wanting to see or talk to anyone. I need to try to be uplifting to anyone with depression and need someone to uplift me at the same time while I am down!!
