Why does a person commit suicide? When one feels that life is not worth living. When one doesn’t find any purpose in life. When one doesn’t get what he wanted in life. When one feels no one understands him. When one starts feeling lonely in this world. When the pain becomes unbearable, suicidal thoughts start coming and one commits suicide.
Most of the time, suicide is the buildup of all the pain and suffering in your life. Sometimes, it is just an instant decision. Sometimes, it just takes someone a few seconds to make a decision to commit suicide.
Many children commit suicide just because their parents scolded them. Many children commit suicide just because they failed or got low marks. You can’t end your life just because someone scolded you or you got low marks.
Many people say suicide is not a solution. It is easy to say, but the person who is suffering only knows what he is going through. Every story has two sides. We can’t judge someone by knowing only one side. We have to listen to his side also, then only we can say anything.
There’s a part of a Ghazal by Wakil Akhtar
वो जो मरने पे तुला है ‘अख़्तर’
उस ने जी कर भी तो देखा होगाWakil Akhtar
I tried to interpret it to my best knowledge. The meaning is that
The person who is so desperate to die
he would have tried living too
I have no intention to justify suicide, but the fact is that no one wants to die, it is the suffering, failure and pain that made someone to commit suicide. It is the depression and anxiety made someone to commit suicide.
Life is full of ups and downs. You have to be mentally strong to survive in this world.
Suicide can end your pain and suffering, but it gives endless pain and suffering to your family and dear ones for the rest of their lives.
Be strong and fight.
