Why Suicide :/
Nothing is worth ending your life for. Nothing can be so intolerable, so unforgettable that one has to commit suicide to forget it. And how can we be certain that death will end all pains?
Death only obliterates faintest glimmer of hope. What made Jiah Khan, a beautiful girl of 25, who made an acting debut with the Superstar Amitabh Bacchan end her life so ruthlessly? Fame is not easy to handle. So enjoy it while it lasts, because it wont last forever. Why did she not realise, that the pain was a temporary blip in her life. Something every individual undergoes? Life can get better, good keeps following bad and vice versa! Depression of any kind should not be a reason to end life which is God's gift. Suicide means you are kicking God's gift and proving yourself not worth it!
You are the product of whatever has been invested into you over the years. You cannot render the sum total of who you are and your achievements as worthless and exit the planet just because one in a billion cares less for you. It is highly selfish to enjoy whatever was invested into you all your life and then end the journey when the ride gets tough.
We should let the moment pass, and not give up everything in a moment of despair. Suicide is seldom decided/ attempted in one moment, it is a culmination of several moments of despair. Its like a person's been bludgeoned back on the ground before it had had the chance to stand up completely on it's feet. After a few hits the person tries to search for help in whatsoever form it gets - some try god, some spirituality, some try making friends, some try dope, some smoke, some drink and some try love - hoping that this new support system that they have invented will help them get up. No one wants to die but when all these fail and the hammering continues, the person gets pushed to the edge. Suicide become imminent, when the person has lost connection to everything real like people and relationships. Dying no more feels like a crime. The person gets numb and finally gives up. but what is worth remembering is, everything will not always go your way. She should have distracted herself of the pain. Your death cannot be a revenge! It is you who suffers. Better is, get over your past demons. Not everything that is faced can be changed, but nothing can be changed until it is faced.
There are many people who are like garbage trucks. They run around full of garbage, full of frustration, anger, disappointments. As and when their garbage piles up they need a place to dump it and sometimes they will dump it on you. Dont take it personally. Dont take their garbage and spread it to others. Life is not always easy. There is no greater cowardice than enjoying your spot in the sun and quitting the stage, the moment life gets a little rough. The pressure is immense, to constantly prove oneself. Remember "This too shall pass." When you stop chasing the wrong things, you give right things a chance to catch you. Fading lights do not mean an end to life. Life is bigger than everything! Make life matter. You matter. Get back on the merry-go-round. Feel empowered.
