Introduction:Suicide is growing in today's fast speeding world. It needs people like you and I to take notice of the world around us and join hands and help each another.
People who suffer from mental illness often commit suicide due to the trauma within their brains. They tend to have racing thoughts; some may include violent ones. Mental illness causes many fears and frustrations to have to battle. Many battles and fears have ended by the quick act of suicide.
People who have no friends get lonely and depressed and feel they are useless and don't deserve to live. They feel the world would be a better place without them. Loneliness in my opinion has causes many suicides. They feel they have no one to turn to in times of great despair.
Severe guilt about someone's past may cause someone to commit suicide. Human beings make mistakes everyday. Sometimes the mistakes have lead them down roads of total despair. Many people can't seem to live with their mistakes; they commit suicide.
Anger is an emotion that spells trouble for everybody concerned. Many people have bottled up anger for too long. They explode onto others, and then on themselves; committing suicide many of the times.
Many People in today's society are lost in world around them. They have no money, jobs, food, cloths, or friends.They are homeless! They starve and see the world around them suffer for scraps of food, or bits of clothing someone may have thrown in the trash. In my opinion this has caused many suicides.
Take the time to notice people around you. If you think they could use a smile, a dollar or two, a warm bed, a shoulder to cry on, try to help them any way you can. One day someone may return the favor unto you.
I feel so sorry for some people around the holidays. It really is the hardest time of the year.
It is our duty as good stewards to extend empathy and compassion to potential suicide victims. Kudos to you Jenny for writing about a tough subject.
Thanks for the list. We all need to sit back and remember to say an easy hi or a quick smile. It doesn't take much for us to acknowledge people but sure goes a long way. Great job with the list!
Xmas is the worst time of the year for suicide just so much pressure. Well thought out with a lot of compation 5*
This is a heartbreaking topic. You have handled it with compassion and care. A generous list.
Suicide is a very real problem that many people don't think about unless they have been personally affected. I have lost friends to suicide, and I have helped friends who were thinking of suicide, and the thing that I want people to know is that you CAN help, and you CAN make a difference... so please do! But know that you alone cannot save someone if they don't want to save themself, so if they make the decision to end their life, even after your help, you cannot let it make you feel guilty, especially if you have given your all to help them. If you or anyone you know is thinking of suicide, and you live in the U.S., please call the suicide prevention hotline at 1-800-273-8255.
Great information Jenny, you never know when a kind word may save someone's life.
