Not as if they were telling me to commit suicide, but their actions towards me always pushed me to taking my own life.
Sometimes they will be liking me to my age mates who had acquired massive wealth before me.
They keep on reminding me of how my mates have progressed in life and I am still there in square one.
This among many others made me sometimes conclude on taking my life.
When this thought of killing myself comes, something keeps on asking me; “of what use is it that after suffering here on earth you still suffer in hell”.
Honestly I will advise you to suffer here on earth and enjoy heaven.
How to overcome the thoughts of committing suicide
The thoughts of committing suicide comes and over-shadows you only when you give it that permission.
It is therefore very important you learn how to resist it when it comes.
1. Run away from the thoughts of suicide
To avoid the thoughts of killing yourself you must learn to keep your thoughts away from those things that make you think about them. This is important because it is exactly the thing that makes you feel like dying.
Running away from those thoughts will give you the opportunity of surviving.
We are humans and we are known for adapting and surviving in every situation we find ourselves. Any man who is scared of what he faces in life and opt to take his life is nothing but a coward.
2. Learn how to let go
There are friends who do not encourage your survival. There are friends who do not support your progress. These groups of friends are part of those who are indirectly pushing you to end your life. The earlier you cut off your relationship with them the better for you.
They can be your family members. With respect to this, I am not encouraging you to stay away from your family but learn to stay away from those things that will make them keep on reminding you of how you’ve not been progressing. In other words, park your things and relocate to a different environment.
3. Get busy
Just like it was written in the Holy Book, “An idle mind is the devil’s workshop”. You can’t tell me that you are busy with something and you are thinking of how to commit suicide.
When you are busy with something tangible your thoughts at that point in time are focused on that thing you are doing and the thoughts of killing yourself will never pop up.
Don’t wait for when the government will offer you a job else you will die of depression. Learn a trade or a handwork and become an employer of labour.
The more you sit and think of the bad government and how you have finished schooling and there is no job the more you continue getting closer to killing yourself.
Turn those thoughts promoted by idleness to something creative and profitable.
4. Let him/her go
Your boyfriend or girlfriend is not more important than your own life.
Killing yourself because your so claimed “lover” broke your heart is an act of foolishness.
Can I remind you of something? When you die, she/he will still find someone else.
Why do you want to take your own life because he doesn’t want you anymore?
Listen, as long as he is not performing the function of air, food and water in your life, then killing yourself is an act of wickedness to yourself.
Let him/her go because he/she doesn’t deserve you.
Your boyfriend left you because he has finally come to realise that the both of you are incompatible. You also need to see it from that aspect. The both of you are incompatible that is the reason why you cannot be together.
This case is just like the case of Nigeria and Biafra. These are two incompatible nations but some bloodsucking demons in human flesh still wish they remained together.
The truth is the more you stay with him, the more you face challenges and heartbreaks. The best way is that you went your separate ways.
So you should never in anyway think of killing yourself because your boyfriend or your girlfriend left you for another person.
There is no joy derived at committing suicide. It’s just like falling from the frying pan into the burning flame.
You have a great future that awaits you and to attain it you must overcome lots of challenges.
These challenges include those things that will push you into giving up.
Only the mind that perseveres gets to the final.
