Many people don't wish to discuss this subject matter so I completely understand if you look away from today's ranting...
Suicide has visited me on several occasions throughout my life. I have had relatives who contemplated and even went to the extent of attempting to do themselves in. I have had acquaintances and co-workers who have suddenly decided to end it all in a blink.
Last Sunday evening a friend lost her son to this menace of society. I can't understand why anyone would purposely take their own life. Is there that much despair in the world? Have we forgotten how to take care of each other? To help each other through life?
Life is not easy. It doesn't come with an instruction booklet and if it is like the owners manual in your vehicle, we probably wouldn't bother to read it anyway. Life comes with curves, drop offs, highs, lows, tears, laughing, pain, agony, joy and love. Some people cannot cope with the lows while others have issues with the highs.
As depressed as I got, I did think about it, but didn't consider it an option. Why do some think about it and see it as the only option?
