Today is World Suicide Prevention Day. Which means that it is time to acknowledge a massive problem which exists in our society.
Suicide is unfortunately surprisingly rampant in a modern world where it seems like we have everything and where life is comparatively so easy in relation to the daily burdens characterisic of many previous generations.
Yet we see it is not so simple, for when things seem fine it is even more of a struggle to deal with those things that aren’t. Since humans have always relied on social support, which can be hard to get when others do not know what you are going through.
So a goal of today would be to think about those who struggle with suicidal thoughts and to ensure them that they are not alone.
