Yesterday was a typical day for us. As usual, I was just being my busy self. The kids were in the other room while I stayed at ours, enjoying the serenity of the house. I love it when they don’t bug me for a few minutes because the quiet time gives me time to think things about. I could pray and sometimes, it is the perfect moment to cry.
I was tweaking my Facebook fan pages when I came across this video. It’s like WHAM!, the topic hits close to home. No, I am not suicidal but I have my share of depressing moments. My life isn’t always sunshine and butterflies. With no fixed income and a mountain-full of financial obligations, I am always thinking how we could make both ends meet. Still, I would like to think that I am more than blessed because I only have money for a problem. This I prefer over relationship or health issues, that’s too much for me to bear.
Moving on, here is a video on suicide experiment. The great guys from fouseytube (I’m a fan LOL) has made another successful social experiment once again.
The words from the cab drivers brought so much tears in my eyes. Hagulgol to the max. And I will forever remember their encouraging words. For some, life is too much to handle. We cannot judge them. Our cross differ from other people’s crosses.
I admit that I get depressed from time to time though I was never suicidal. But just the same, I am surprised to get kind and encouraging words from people who I think would never care. They are the people in my circle who I don’t get the chance to talk to often. They just don’t know how their simple “are you okay?” made me feel better.
Recently, we lost someone to depression and eventually suicide. It was so painful that I never would want to wish it to any family. No one deserves that kind of death and no one deserves that kind of grief. The ones left behind will forever be guilty because somehow we could have helped her IF we were brave enough to break the wall she has built over the months she was struggling. We never knew and we never thought that she’d go through that. The girl was strong and a known fighter. But as they always say,
You see, people who go through so much just need someone to talk to, someone who would listen to their endless problems and someone brave enough to pull them out of that sink hole.
There is probably one in your circle who needs a tap and a simple “are you okay?” PM, tweet or DM. A note would be better.
