Open Skies . . . Closed minds . . .


      A few days ago, my friend took his own life. He was considered friendly and funny, many loved him for his kind, lovable and humorous nature. Unfortunately, his depression and despair grew quietly and he felt compelled to commit suicide. There are many options for him it is like an open sky but his closed mind made him to commit suicide. He is not an anomaly; he is actually lecture in polytechnic college. No matter whom we are what our position in life, how happy we look or what we have accomplished; suicidal thoughts can come to anyone. No doubt, we all have had thoughts of ending our lives.

      I've been in that place many times. In fact I used to fantasize about how I'd do it and when. I used to wish I'd get hit by a car or lose control while I was driving and it would kill me. I completely understand how and why people feel like this. But I'll tell you's not the answer.

    So why to opt the permanent solution to your temporary problems? Especially for young adults, the problems they face may seem massive and unsolvable. But everybody has problems; nobody goes through life without it. As an individual, you are defined by your reaction to the hardships you face and how you choose to overcome your suffering. Suicide is simply escaping from your problems, not the solution to them.

       You might think that by killing yourself, you are outwitting your problems. But by taking your own life, you are making the decision to lose in the game of life. Suicide cannot be called a personal choice since it does not only affect the person dying. If a loved one commits suicide, the people around them are left with a lifetime of guilt and remorse. They will constantly blame themselves for not preventing the death or wondering where they went wrong. You will be leaving your family and friends with a lifetime of emotional trauma and unanswered questions.

       Fighting for survival is one of the core program every human being possesses.  Taking  the  cowards  way  out  is  not  the  right  way  to  deal  with  your problems. Remember that other people have faced tougher situations than you, fought for survival and succeeded. As long as you stay and fight, you always have a chance. Choose to be a survivor, not a failure.

Life is VERY worth living. It's a gift...truly a gift...don't take this gift away from'll regret it. You will regret it more then it'll do you any good. That I promise you.
