Life is Precious

Three weeks ago we came across a body of a young man who just committed suicide. He was a 24 year old engineer. I do not know why he committed suicide at such a young age. However, he fail to realize the anguish his death has to his family and those who loved him. Imagine the amount of sacrifice a parent has to go through to pay for his further studies.

Sometimes when we are lonely and have no one to talk to, our mind starts to wonder and ending it seems to be the easiest thing to do. This is especially true when we are also faced with other problems like owing money or being rejected by someone we are in love with. At that moment, everything is all gloomy and sad and we just want it to go away. I felt like that for a moment while in college. At that moment it was very tempting to end it and call it quits.

The best movie to illustrate how a person can have impact to others without realizing it is the 1946 movie, “It’s a Wonderful Life”.

I recently came across an article of someone whose life fell apart but managed to bounce back. It took her seven years. Seven years may seem like a long time but seven years is a short time if we compare it to a typical lifespan of ninety years.

Each of us are provided with the tools not only to survive but to flourish. It is up to each of us to find out how to develop ourselves and reach our full potential.

Suicide is not the answer, the ending is too abrupt, you cannot let your life story to end so suddenly!
