Please Don't Commit Suicide!

Please do not commit suicide.

Damn! Been reading about one Chukwuemeka Akachi, a poet and an undergraduate who took his own life..
I felt bad because for at least 6 months, this guy had been giving warning signs. He posted stuff on depression and death.. but then it seemed like nobody took him seriously until he finally did it.
I don't what's moving me to write this post, but I must write it.
.
Suicide is a terrible way to go. People take their lives when they feel their challenges are insurmountable and they can do nothing about it. Their mind is made up because they only see negative possibilities.
.
But by taking ones life, one loses the beauty and surprises contained in the next moment. All around you and contained in each passing second are possibilities. Lots and lots of wonderful possibilities filled with hope and love.
.
But the devil tricks the minds of these people to not see any good possibility and then they eventually choose the easy way out to go by themselves.
.
Whatever you're passing through today, I want you to understand that you are not alone in it and you will never be alone! There are thousands of people who have passed, who are passing and I who will pass through the same challenges. Many of them will eventually survive it and it becomes a story to encourage others with in future. Why be among those who lose out the battle by taking one's life?
.
No matter how bad the devil wants you to see your predicament, the truth is that there is always a way out and you can eventually triumph over it.
.
At this point, I have to stress about the importance of spirituality in one's life. By spirituality, I don't mean that you should always be seen in places of worship or be a hypocrite. I mean you should try to seek God for your own self. Try to get closer to the creator and the infinite source of love through meditation, prayer, practice and study. It will help you go a long way and will give you direction in a world where it seems that a lot people don't care.
.
God always cares, God is always there for you. He brought you here and he has armed you with all you need to walk this earth victoriously. Seek his face and counsel.
.
I say this because a lot of people are bedeviled with depression and often contemplate suicide because they believe nobody cares about them.
.
In extreme cases, a lot of people may not actually care about your existence.. but the ultimate is when you refuse to care for your own self as a result of this.
.
Your own opinion and the way you feel about yourself is the ultimate litmus test. It is not fully dependent on the behavior of others.
.
By the way, everyone isn't meant to value, love or appreciate you. Should that now make you devalue, hate or humiliate your own self?
.
That doesn't just make sense.
.
Deep spirituality really helps. With an appreciation of God, you'll learn to naturally love, cherish and value your own existence irrespective of what any person does or says to you. Then you'll be able to find those who genuinely value you because of who you are.
.
You will understand that this life is not from the outside to the inside(you). The world is from inside to outside.
.
I think I'm typing too much.. just think about these things. Whatever you're facing, know that it is a challenge you can actually overcome. Know your maker and know yourself. It goes a long way.
.
I don't often ask people to share my posts, but please share this post of you find it encouraging and supportive. You never know whose life you may get to save as a result.

Have a nice day.
