I am sure I am probably too late to post anything related to the practice of Anti-Depression or suicide prevention day, but, am I?
Half of the population, or maybe more than that, is nowadays suffering from depression which can be a result of anything ranging from the death of a close-one to bullying to the stress from school or office. Seriously, anything! This depression, however, leads people towards making one of the biggest mistakes in life, Suicide.
The moment you are planning to take a nap, there is someone out there trying to cut his/her life off, in order to walk away from the pain, the issues, they are dealing with. According to the stats, there are approximately 800,000 people dying every day for no natural cause. Astonishing!
Only if I or anyone out there could have known the way to stop it, to help them practice anti-depression! Anyway, I am doing my part by sharing some helpful quotes on suicide prevention, because words DO HELP A LOT!! At least, I believe that. Okay, so I am not really going to stuff you up with uncountable quotes, but yeah, some wise words, that might make any suicidal person reconsider their option between life and death.
1. You have the power to say, “This is not how my story will end.”
Every story is special and so is yours! Remember how, in our earlier days, we never appreciated a story with a sad ending? We always wanted it to be a happy ending, we still do. Then, what is the point of making your own story so terrible? Why are you even thinking of doing this to yourself? See, everyone has got their own story with their very own twists and turns in life. But know that the twists and turns you face are not supposed to make you feel terrified. In fact, they are there to make your life interesting! Now, who the hell likes a story with no turning of events, every now and then? Come on, buckle up and be the hero of your life.
2. “Place your hand over your heart, can you feel it? That is called purpose. You’re alive for a reason so don’t ever give up.” – Unknown
Know your purpose, for god’s sake. See, I don’t know any better way to highlight this, but if you can seriously think of attempting a suicide, then, my dear one, you can definitely shape your life according to your own terms and conditions. It definitely takes too much guts to walk away from the life that has been gifted to you, then why not use this courage for better, without killing yourself? Come on, man! Choose happiness, practice anti-depression, choose a better life and not death, because death would definitely not bring you anything good.
3. “Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.”
Have you ever heard of the saying “Dhobi ka kutta, na ghar ka, na ghat ka (a rolling stone gathers no moss)”? It should actually be translated as “The dog that belongs neither to house, nor to waterside”, but anyway. My point is that, Problems are like a “Kutta (dog or rolling stone)” in this saying, who have got no permanent residence of their own. They might stick with you for a little longer, than usual, but know that, they are not going to live there, because obviously, you don’t have any space for them. They just don’t belong there! Okay tell me, would you leave your home permanently, if a guest came by? You got it!
4. “Even the darkest night will end and the sun will rise.”
Alike universe, we all have got an equal amount of days and nights in our lives, but neither does the day stay for too long nor the night. Countries like Alaska go through 30 days of night, once a year. Did you know that? But even after those terrible days of darkness, the country glistens with the new sunshine on 31st! Isn’t that amazing? Well, so is your life. See, the dark might stay for a little longer than usual, but at the end, the sun is going to show up, because that my friend, is the rule of law. That is how everything works. Do not kill yourself for something non-existent.
5. “God only gives his toughest battles to his strongest soldiers”
Soldiers are always found to be one of the boldest human beings alive; so are you. While they fight at the borders for the sake of their countries, you fight at your own personal space for the sake of your life, which is definitely not normal. It is time for you to get up and feel good about yourselves, because you, my friend, are one hell of a heroic person alive on this earth. Don’t let these temporary problems fool you towards cowardness. Giving up is never an option, it never was and it never will be and God is so proud of you to not quit during this-worst situation.
That is it. I don’t know how to end this, but I just want to let you know that there are so many people to help you out in case you need it. Please remember that they won’t know your problem until you tell them. So, reach out, ask for help, talk to the good listeners, practice anti-depression and just live, please live. I am sending this little smile towards you, in case you need it 😊
Ask for help before it’s too late! Lots of love 🙂
You guys, please keep your heart as well as your eyes open for the people suffering from sadness. It might be anyone from the person living next door to the person sitting right beside you in your office. Please help as much as you can, a little act of yours can save a person’s life!
