This thing is getting too much

This poo is becoming unbelievable. Nigerians love their life to a fault and now all of a sudden most people think suicide is an escape route?
Is a suicidal demon present in our country?
How can we stop this?

When some of us write posts encouraging one another to hold on, in this struggles of life, a certain group of people believes that those who write motivational posts are jobless people who are not ready to work but choose to encourage themselves with motivational posts.
It's so sad to see that some people commit suicide thinking it's the solution to their problems.
Let me tell you what those that kill themselves believe in before carrying out the act. They believe that when they kill themselves, then they don't have to suffer any longer. But is that truly the case?
People are going through tough times. There's no money, no job, not even true love. When someone works so hard to succeed and things are not working for him, he's not expected to be happy. This sadness if not handled can be dangerous; the victims begin to consider suicide as an option. You can never understand the pains of this set of individuals until you find yourself in their shoes.
So, try as much as you can not to judge the victims of this act, especially when you have never done anything to help a friend in need.
Suicide is not an option. It will never be. When one begins to consider suicide and the Spirit of God is not there to caution him (that is if he listens), neither is there anybody to talk to him, it may be too late.
Surrender to God and allow him to guide you. He will never lead you into killing yourself.
Hold on to whatever it is you believe in. But please, don't allow suicide thoughts to win.
Learn to talk to people.
Before now, I have always been a person of my own. I don't tell people my problems because of the fear of being insulted. Even up till now, you will never understand my battles until I tell you. Recently, I have discovered the importance of talking to someone about my battles. This is it. People that you talk to may not be able to help you with the materials you need at that time, but they can always talk to you. They can always encourage you. Sometimes, we discover that the battles we think we are facing is nothing to be compared with that of others. I can't remember the number of times I shared my worst fears with someone, but at the end of the day, I am the one that summarizes the discussion with motivational speech because then I realized that the person needed it more than me. Talk to someone.
Don't lock up yourself indoors while you bath yourself with hot tears. Come out and have a view. I'm sure that you will see/hear something to be grateful for.
There's always something to be grateful for but the evil one will not let you see it.
Understand that without challenges, then life is incomplete. Embrace the challenges and use it for your good.
Allow yourself to be loved. Don't be the one giving out love to a particular person all the time, and when it's not reciprocated, you start considering suicide. Allow someone to love you.
Help one another. The person you refused to help even when you can, may be the next suicide victim. Help someone overcome their battles.
Check up on your loved ones once in a while; they may be going through hell and they only need your little care to be fine. You may not be able to forgive yourself when you hear they are gone and you couldn't do anything for them.
Stay strong. Stay happy. Stay blessed.

You have spoken well sir/madam. You have raised some very strong points. You have even said some things I was hoping to say.
But the fact still remains that suicide is happening.
Have you ever been angry, like violently angry, mad, in rage? — I’ll go ahead and assume you have.
When in rage, do you know how easy and relaxing it is to break things? Say some very sharp, painful words? Slap and/or fight somebody? — I’ll go ahead and assume you do.
Now that’s how powerful depression can be. Infact, it is even a more powerful force. Depression will break down your mental defenses, it will weaken your mental resolve. It will get to a point where life disgusts you and then taking your life will seem like the only option out.
Writing motivational speeches and stuff cannot help fight or treat depression. You need therapy, drugs, strong antidepressants to keep a depressed person sane.
If it was motivation and prayers, then why did the RCCG pastor kill himself? I’m very sorry to say that just believing in God alone is not enough.
Medical help and therapy is the only way out.

NAIRALAND needs to create a SUICIDE SECTION for those who are intending and also for those who have made up their minds to kill themselves.
-The Intending Ones should have a section.
-The established Ones should also have theirs.
-While the ALREADY DEAD, that’s the ZOMBIES should have theirs as well.
It’s like any bad thing weh waka for the world tire, then enter for Nigeria, dey make Nigeria its permanent Residence.
What’s all this Abeg...??
PLEASE, we need SUICIDE SECTION let’s see if we can address the problems of these SUICIDEES

Jamb is a scam, an organised extortion fraud.. why test people with School Cert for Universities that cant meet up half of the numbers of applicants.
Just another money spinner for the goverment. Many countries don't have Jamb and UTME but their students are far ahead of ours
|Re: Boy Commits Suicide After Failing Jamb PICS by wittyt98(m): 5:59am On May 16|
na wa o i used to see suicide as a White man's thing thinking Nigerians are too hard for that bullshit but I guess I was wrong.
who do i blame now? the boy for giving up too soon or the mother for forcing the child to live up to her own dreams and expectations

Every one is looking for a way out of this country.
The rich/lucky get visas and leave.
Those who can't afford visas choose suicide and peg the suicide on useless things like jamb result.
Nigeria as a nation is depressing.
|Re: Boy Commits Suicide After Failing Jamb PICS by BIGGIE121(m): 7:37am On May 16|
This is absurd, i dont why a young lad would think that killing himself would be an escape to the imbroglio that comes with failing jamb examination ,which he probably didnt prepare for , may his soul rest in peace,

Sorry bro I feel your hurt
|Re: Boy Commits Suicide After Failing Jamb PICS by Chubhie: 9:40am On May 16|
Until the Nigerian society starts seeing failure positively, the suicide rate will keep jumping off the charts. Imagine if Thomas Edison was a Nigerian? Yes.... He would have committed suicide 99 times.
This is same extreme need for materialism that's pushing our boys to Yahoo Yahoo and our young girls to marry their ancestors just to escape poverty.
Each and everyone of us created today's Nigeria.
|Re: Boy Commits Suicide After Failing Jamb PICS by Chubhie: 9:46am On May 16|
BIGGIE121:Do you know that just failing jamb would strip all forms of dignity from you in a typical Nigerian home,church and society?
Your father would question where your mother got you from,pastor will say you are not serving God enough and society will say na village people so you should go and carry ebo to appease them.

Thanks for adding an extra point to the post.
But you will agree with me that if a depressed person did not talk to someone, then there's no way a therapy can be administered.
You cannot strike out all the points I outlined above, and ofcourse, God as the number 1.
It may also surprise you to know that there's more to the RCCG Pastor's case that we know. They have been cases of murder disguised as suicide in the past. I'm not saying this is one of them but I do know that the world is evil.
|Re: Boy Commits Suicide After Failing Jamb PICS by COOL10(m): 11:05am On May 16|
Who knows how many times he must have been ridiculed for failing the exam and he might have thought: But I was somewhere before,you withdrew me,asked me to write JAMB,I failed and you're still blaming me. It's very likely he never wanted to leave that institution in the first place.
|Re: Boy Commits Suicide After Failing Jamb PICS by Johnjanrt(m): 11:14am On May 16|
LadyEsther:well said sis. Thanks a million times for the post.
|Re: Boy Commits Suicide After Failing Jamb PICS by mu2sa2: 11:19am On May 16|
Looks like suicide is being seen by some misguided folks as the easy way out. When you have a challenge and you are too dumb to confront it, should you opt for the easy route of "ending it all"? But how do you go about taking your life so easily? These days it's as easy as ABC! YouTube and other social media are your friends on this. Before now, you hardly hear of suicide - and this is true for the whole of Nigeria. Suicide was and should remain an abomination in our land.
