Have You Ever Felt Like Committing Suicide Before? How Did You Overcome? by deturla: 4:55pm On Apr 22, 2020
Have you ever felt like committing suicide based on depression before?

You'd just draw blank, after sadness has enveloped you for so long.

You'd not be able to think of anything else. Just within your shell, you'd grow cold.

The pressure of the pain, the hurt reaches a high, one that only you can feel. No one else can.

Then...

The thought of suicide filters in, and you'd come to make peace with yourself.
Shebi, death will make all the pain go away.

The peace that that comes with the realization of dying will be overwhelming that nothing else will matter at that point.

That's why it's never easy to pull someone from the throes of suicide.

For those who have won suicide, you are the real MVPs.

How did you deal with it?
How did you help yourself?

Can we learn from you?

In those days when I was a minor, life became unbearable that I drank methylated spirit, but nothing happened after vomiting form.

I was quite young then. I was trusted and tired of life. I went to the kictchen. Wrote the short suicide note. Held the knife . Put the tip on my Belle. But I just couldn't do it . I was too weak... I wished there was a way death could come with that much pain... but another voice in me said "there's another way- BECOME SUCCESSFUL!!!."

Seeing this, one gets to realize people facing soo many things, and the thought of suicides crips in. Just know it's never the best option, cuz it creates more heartache to people that care about you.

I just hope we'll never face something that will make us think about suicide as the best way out.


I've never thought about it though.

The thought of suicide is nt easy let alone the act. It takes extra strength to get done.

It happened in Q3 2015 shortly after my wedding. My ex claimed she was 5mths pregnant fr me with all flimsy excuses why the notification took so long. Things started falling apart almost immediately because i could nt stomach it.

Wifey found out somehow along the line which made issues more complicated. She left home with my Son - he was just abt 6months then, lost concentration at work and at home.

When it then appears there was no easy way out of the mess that was when I saw suicide as an option with 1000 ways to die running through my head but it was extremely difficult fr me to execute mainly because of my Son.

Gave the issue the tym it requires, continued pleading with wifey for forgiveness while taking responsibility for the unborn child and the mother till the baby was delivered.

Shortly after delivery, one thing led to another which made me realized that the baby wasn't mine.

If I had chosen suicide as an option then i would ve die fr nothing.

People who commit suicide don't want to end their lives. They want to end their pain.

I was able to overcome because I wanted to fight it. It was sad and it was crazy difficult, it was a really low period for me. If I had lost the fight I might have ahead.

Went to buy petrol one day, during fuel crises. The petrol station brought Security to put the place in order but these security men in camouflage turned out to cheat people and were beating up people with one rope called koboko.

Stood in line amidst the fights and struggle since morning was so hungry then when it came to my turn the security man on stand by put someone else twice.

When I protested that I'm the one, this man started flogging me as in merciless flogging with koboko.

I was so angry that I removed a lighter in my pocket and switched it on... Went toward the people that were putting fuel switched it on again, and before now I had increased the flame of the lighter so the fire was really blazing. Like 10 inch long from the lighter.

I wanted everyone to just burn on that day. Everyone including the Army guy and his partner ran off.

I was soooo angry

Anger is not a good thing
In fact Bible let us know that anger is also a battle of life take a look at Moses for instance
Anger broke the relationship between him and God
Not letting him enter the promise Land
You forgot that when everyone get burnt you are also not left out
Careful bro

Depression is a terrible thing, it's only if you have been there that you can actually understand how it feels. Personally I don't condemn or see people that commit suicide as being weak and coward.

It's God himself that save me because I can't really say how I manage to survive.
2018/2019 was years I can't forget easily, It all started towards the end of 2017 when a man I love and trusted so much left me for someone else. My whole world collapsed, I felt shattered and fell into deep depression. Some times I will leave the house just be roaming the street weeping with the thought of being hit by any passing car so that I can just die and leave all my pains behind me.

How I survived:

1. By God's grace, I believe God Himself save my soul
2. There's this spirit always telling me "have you not heard people saying dying because of a man or woman is a stupid decision",
3. the thought and shame of the news of me killing myself over a man circulating all over. Lol...

4. Another thought of not wanted to hurt my family and loved ones who truly love and care about me.

In summary, by thinking deeply will make you realize suicide is not the best option or way out of whatever you might be going through.
Lastly, ask God to help you and try to confide in at least one person i.e seek for help, thou this is not always easy because high level of depression will make you want to isolate yourself and not wanted to relate with people, you will just want to be alone and all alone with your thoughts. I forced myself to tell two of my friends.
Try and speak up about your situation, it helps.

Talk to him about what exactly?
Men of God have spoken to him he call them fake
So who am I ? A baby christian that need more spiritual understanding myself??

Where did you see where I judged him?
I already said God should forgive him in my quote to him

My curiosity just led me to find out more about him the reason I dug the post up...

Meanwhile whatever you are
Muslim , Christian or traditional worshipper you can as well help me talk to him
Must it be because I am a Christian ?
Talk to your family bro
