According to the World Health Organization, in 2015 about 788, 000 people died by suicide.
An individual who drives herself to suicide believes that there is no choice left but to end his life.
They genuinely believe that eternal oblivion is much better than being here and constantly dealing with the turmoil within them.
They believe that they have exhausted all efforts in trying to live this life, but in the end, they concluded that this life? This thing called living? They aren’t carved out for this.
But just as fear consumes us when we are inside a dark tunnel that seems eternal, there is still, and there will always be an exit where the light pours in.
There are still people out there and even organizations ready to help out when you’re prepared to take that one step you can never take back.
Give them a chance.
