The talk of suicide is always on the negative side more so in the western culture and any other conversation to the contrary is a taboo for the most part but as tragic as it may be to end one's life, it's only fair to respect the choice one made without making biased judgements. It's important to note that not all suicides are as a result of the stereotypical mental health disorders. For instance, if one took his or her own life in order to save others in a tragedy, where does mental illness come in here? Will it be called noble suicide or what name will be given to it? What about the soldiers who make the choice to defend their country at the cost of their own lives? Is it not suicidal to take up the job? Suicide can be a broad term but the fact remains a life has been taken. Therefore, we need to talk about it from an objective point and not stigmatize people who have already committed suicide or are contemplating doing so. In any case, the more we talk about it, the less the likelihood of people committing more suicides as they will have a listening ear to air their worries without the fear of being judged or stigmatized. We all know that as much as life is good and sweet, it can also give us bitter lemons that may be hard for some of us to turn them into lemonade without the help of others. It's indeed true that most suicides are caused by a major depression sustained for a long period of time until one reaches a dead end hence out of despair, chooses the 'easy' way out of it which is to escape this sometimes cruel life. Until one has reached the lowest point in life and underwent severe depression and anxiety and luckily overcame it, is only when you can relate to the pain that others underwent through until they finally lost the battle and ended their own lives. Furthermore, in this modern generation where social media has ruled with an iron fist with no checks and balances, cases of depression, anxiety and suicides will only skyrocket especially among the young 'microwave' generation of youths who want quick success at the snap of their fingers without trusting the process and the patience needed to achieve their dreams. For the older generation who take their own lives perhaps due to unfulfilled dreams or severe abuses, they leave behind vulnerable loved ones whether its children or spouses who wonder what mistake they did in order for someone to take their own lives. Such children may grow up to have the same suicidal thoughts and the toxic cycle continues. To sum it all, the earlier we embrace suicide as a disease like any other and talk about it openly with no strings attached, the better we will arrest this situation before it becomes another Corona virus. As they say, there is nothing new under the sun, and it's only through mutually beneficial discussions that we will overcome this all together and there will be no need for people to choose the 'escape route' out of the social duty of becoming responsible human beings.
