You have a choice

When people talk or read about suicide, there are various reactions to it. Some may just shook their heads and say, " What a stupid thing to do. .." whereas some just feel a sense of remorse thinking how a life could’ve been saved if someone had just listened.

A life is wasted just to end their suffering or for some, other people’s sufferings. Sufferings that people often say that it could be solved. They always say that after the person has taken his life. They alway say " we’re here to help…"" blah blah blah..
By the time, it’s too late.
Living in regret after they’ve killed themselves will not rewind time.
You think if the person is alive and well, people around them will really come forward to help? Chances are .. VERY unlikely. Becos the problem to one person ( who is normal) may seem trivial but to one ( who is severely depressed), it may be deemed dead serious. Hence they will brush aside like many others will. To you, it may be ridiculous but to them,.. it’s not.

When there is a call for help, please don’t ignore it becos it is something preventable. Like I said before, blaming yourself afterwards won’t bring him/her back.

If you choose to ignore or rejest that call.. inevitably you will feel responsible for his/her death becos you were the last person he/she thought of, whom he/she felt reliant on and thought could possibly help him.. but unfortunately.. didn’t. And that is the saddest part.
Remembering them after their death is painful but relatively pointless becos they won’t know anyway.
As anyone who has been close to someone that has committed suicide knows, there is no other pain like that felt after the incident.
And for people who is thinking of committing suicide __ You have a choice. Live or die. Every breath is a choice. Every minute is a choice. To be or not to be.
