Suicide: a thought

What does suicide sound like inside the head?

- I can’t face the reality and would be better off not being alive

Even though you haven’t tried to end your life, there would have been instances when you just wanted to escape reality.

Did you numb your senses by intoxications?

Did you oversleep so that you don’t have to face things?

Did you feel that your life has no point?

Although, People won’t call it suicide, such thoughts of escapism are indeed Short-lived suicides. Because you killed your reality for some time of nothingness.

Suicide Prevention

Suicide prevention isn’t limited to saving a person who is about to jump off the top of the building or who is trying to eat poison. Because if a person is trying to do these things, then he has already short-lived suicided multiple times. Here’s how you can stop yourself from committing short-lived suicides: -

· Find a selfish reason to wake up

If you don’t have things planned for every day that will give you joy then someday your brain will conclude that you have no happiness in living. This will be catastrophic. If you realize that you currently don’t have any such thing then create such a thing.

· Learn to Handle Pressure

It really saddens me when I hear kids committing suicide because their phone was snatched by their parents. Unfortunately, many people feel entitled to support/help/pampering from others whenever they feel the pressure. Shake yourself up and build a habit to handle pressure by yourself.

· Save Others

When you notice someone losing interest to live reality, help them face the reality. Saving them will help you save yourself when you think about escaping reality

Call to Action

Ask yourself why you should wake up tomorrow and keep asking till you find a selfish answer.


Sharing I am depressed quotes/videos/photos is not cool. Hahahaha, I have no desire to live, I hate my life is not funny. Not all suicides end your whole lives some only end your days. Suicides of all kinds are to be eradicated.
