Imagine you entered into a room just to have the shock of your life. A friend, a neighbour or even a stranger, right before your eyes, lifeless, breathless, motionless. Your heart would bump, your head would ache and even if it were you worst enemy, you would feel pain and hurt for that soul.
Suicide, deeper than murder is one of the worst things that could ever happen to a soul.
Painfully but ironically, it happens, that both the heavily rich and the miserably poor commit suicide, and to our utmost amazement, people we least expect do same.
In this write-up, I’ll carefully outline, what we all do, we do not pay attention to that could cause people to feel depressed, that could cage people and get them into such situations.
Our words have immense power. During every quarrel we are bound to make very rude statements that could make us win the session or conquer our opponent. But that’s too common.
During our conversations, probably, a football argument, or any argument of a kind, we find people using statements that appear almost harmless and funny but are actually registering in the corners of a mental faculty that replays in our most quiet and reflective moments.
A typical example would be two guys in a heated argument, then you hear, ‘We gyimi Paa’, meaning ‘You’re a very foolish person’. Although that may seem harmless, every human being, depending on how well we have trained our minds to refuse that about ourselves, takes some time to forget and pretend he or she did not hear that.
The most confusing statement people make in an attempt to ask if someone is well is, ‘Ei you, are you alive?’ Or ‘Aren’t you dead?’
These are two statements I consider totally absolutely unnecessary, coming from an immature human being. Whether jovially or unintentionally, people have had to deal with the humiliating battle of fighting these avoidable mental wars to get rid of the value of these words.
For instance, you ask someone this question, and the thoughts that could come include, ‘I’m I really needed on earth?’ ‘What is my worth?’
Most vulnerable are people who have gone through the toughest times of their lives, experiencing near death events, or people who have gone through drastic diseases and have successfully made it or are still gradually recovering. You may kill their joy and put them back into their shells.
Let us understand, that our words carry weight, are swords that could build or break.
Unfortunately, for most people, although they wouldn’t mean what they said, for others it is a battle, a very tough one, dealing with letters and alphabets people have wrongly used against them.
I’ll urge you to follow this series as I carefully take us through the things we do and say that may cause an end to people’s lives.
I’ll share with you a story of someone who almost killed himself, and don’t hesitate to share a story with me too.
