      Yes my dear at 22. If I had followed life I may have killed myself before I turned 13 and again at the age of 23.

      People face so many trials and tribulations that affect them so severely death looks like the perfect escape not minding what is on the other side.

      Life happens differently for different people. Some people are in so much pain and hopelessness that they lose faith in God and life looks like a prison they must escape.

      Let me tell you this, a lot of people have not gone the suicide route because they’re afraid of hell fire. Imagine a person who life has hurt so badly they don’t even believe there is a God anymore. Almost nothing can make that person reconsider their decision to commit suicide. Sometimes it takes deep therepay and close monitoring to stop such a person. How many Nigerians can afford that?

      When SOME people commit suicide I don’t judge or call them foolish. I just pray to God for forgiveness on their behalf, thank God for seeing me through the dark times and ask God for mercy on us all.

      If you’ve not walked in another’s shoes, don’t ever judge.

    1. Its not just becoming rampant, I think it has been there but our society has surprsessed the emotions and made it seem like anyone with mental illness is mad and must be confined.
      IMO

  9. People go through a lot that you would never suspect on a daily. Most of these people are well-spoken, well-dressed people in an enviable position from all sphere of life. These are people You may envy when your paths cross. People have struggles you know. I am a clinical psychologist and at times I become weary after some sessions. It does not also help that I am an empath. I am honestly thinking of changing my field. Sometimes I feel I am not so strong to handle some cases and then you really the saying "Just be nice to everyone you meet for everyone is fighting some sort of battle" is no joke.

    4. @ KIKS for you to be a clinical psychologist you must have gone for your phd. So you don't have to know the person before you automatically know they have their phd or PsyD degree. It is common knowledge

  13. Depression is real..I made very bad life choices in 2004...I was so depressed and could not bear to live with myself....I remember driving on TMB, stopping and it took all my will-power not to end it all in the murky waters.I was a beautiful,vibrant 31 year old back then,self employed with a few staff..an office on the island but very very empty and I could not forgive myself..It's been 16 years and I am gradually rebuilding my life..A thriving empire,2 sons and life is good! I thank God He gave me the grace to pull through
