Suicide due to depression
The title above is quite scary, my friend! Today I want to talk about suicide due to depression. The reason I want to discuss this is that yesterday I casually opened a crime news site, however, there is one interesting news on the news site. That is a case of suicide committed by a woman aged 52 years. In the news, it was written that the woman became depressed because of menopause. So desperate to end her life by jumping from the 21st floor in her apartment. OMG!!
It is very sad to read the news about this woman's suicide. Depression that can end a person's life like this is nothing new. I read a lot of cases of suicide by famous actresses due to depression. If we trace, those who commit suicide because of a lack of respect for themselves. They feel that life is useless and cannot make the people around them happy. WTF!! Hey, the purpose of life is not to make other people happy!
But I can't fault anything like that. Usually, depression cases like this are due to a demand in their social environment, for example, a husband or in-laws who always talk about or make fun of a wife who has not been able to give birth to a baby in their family, thus making the wife feel disappointed and blame herself. for not being able to give something special to the people in her family.
Actually, depression can be cured by doing therapy so that it can prevent suicide. However, if therapy is only carried out in a hospital or a psychiatrist, it is a futile action. Why? Because, someone who is experiencing depression or stress with a high level, definitely needs support from the closest people, especially support from family. So, treatment in a hospital or psychiatrist is not enough to treat people who have major depression.
If we look at it from a religious point of view, then suicide is a heinous act and a great sin. Because suicide is an act of desperation that no longer wants to carry out God's commands. Some people who commit suicide still believe in God, but do not want to pray and ask God for help. God gives us a test in living life so that we are always close to God, not giving up and running away in the face of problems. Face every problem and ask God for help, because indeed God is loving and caring.
I hope that all of us can take lessons from the case of suicide due to depression, so that we have awareness, remember God, and be able to control ourselves from every problem in life that we experience. Thank you for stopping by and reading this article I wrote. Hopefully useful and can be a valuable lesson for all of us. Regards.
