Have you ever thought of committing suicide? Thinking of taking away one’s life is a brave thought because it just means you value happiness so much that without it, you’d rather die. I hope your thought would propel you to do something otherwise and creative in order to find a beautiful reason of your existence where inner joy is truly experienced.
There are people when they know of their terminal sickness, they choose the method of assisted dying. I commend them. They have two things in their minds. They can’t take anymore the physical discomfort and agonizing pain in their bodies. Second, they don’t wanna be a burden anymore to their families. The second one is truly praiseworthy.
For those who are planning to resort to suicide even without terminal illness, do you think your emotional and mental pain will finally end? I think you’re opening up a new dimension of negative repercussions. It might not pose any problem if you leave no one in this world but if you have a parent, spouse or kids, your suicide might cause a depressive environment for them. Other people might think they are contributory factors to your death. Their guilt would bother them for the rest of their lives. What if you got young kids you leave behind? What message are you trying to say to them? That they can give up without trying again in order to succeed? That there’s no hope anymore and that everyone seems to be bad? It could be worse if your kids will just stay alive and bear the pain in their hearts. What kind of life would that be? It’s a life of depression causing successive failures until their bodies wear out leading to death anyway. It’s the same suicide. The latter is just prolonged.
Since I believe there’s life after death, I wanna ask… Will your soul be at peace seeing your family that way? I think your soul will be stuck here in this world, trapped in deeper anger, regret and pain. I think your soul can’t cross over. It’s like hell but temporary. Your soul can only be freed when your loved ones learn to forgive you and move on with their lives.
P. S. Talagang importante na meron kang mahal sa buhay kagaya ng anak dahil sila ang iyong inspirasyon na patuloy mabuhay dito sa mundo.
