The problem with people nowadays especially teenagers is that they think their problem is the most extreme problem in the world. They think that their problems have no solutions or no one can help them so they give up. They give up on the people around them, their friends, and family.
What they don’t realize that there’s a lot of people who are suffering in the world since time began. Don’t get me wrong, I am not downplaying anyone’s problem or suffering, but if you only took the time to meet people in other country, culture or community.
Meet someone who is from Africa, they can problem tell you so many stories about their struggle. Try to meet the people on the streets near your community. I’m sure they can tell you a lot of things about their struggle, about their fear.
If you’re wondering why you should do that? Well, if you’re a dramatic person who thinks the world is against you are that life is hard and you want to give up already. You should be able to see the difference between them and you.
These people have experience so many traumatic events or tough and challenging situations in their life and they maybe dirt poor and they are struggling on a daily basis but they never gave up on living.
That’s right. The title of this is random thoughts but if you are someone who has been thinking of taking their own life. You probably felt that everything is just a waste and that nobody cares about you or that it is hopeless.
I want you to think twice before even thinking of taking your own life. I want you to think of the homeless, the needy, the sick, the hungry. The terminally ill. These people have nothing going on for them and their life might be meaningless to you or irrelevant or they might be insignificant to you.
But know this, they will keep on struggling, they keep on fighting for their life. They will keep on living even if living is hard, even if waking up each day is painful or challenging.
What matters is they are alive. They have one more day of existing and they take it one step at a time.
Yes, it is easy to give up on life and it is easy to just say, “Fuck it!” then kill yourself. What you probably don’t realize is, struggling is good. If you are someone who is struggling right now, please don’t give up. keep struggling, because it only means you are alive and you are living.
It may not be obvious now but at some point in your life, all this struggle will be useful or beneficial for you and everyone around you.
So if you are thinking of killing yourself, I would stop and think about it carefully.
If you think you are alone, I’m telling you now that you are not alone.
Someone, somewhere is willing to help you. You just need to ask for it first. Extend your hand and someone will reach out to you.
This think that I wrote is my opinion and it is not a representation of my organization or the people I surround myself.
If you are someone who thinks otherwise then go fuck yourself.
