Story for the Gods

It is sad, but true that we now live in a world where suicide has become fashionable. It seems people now commit suicide for the fun of it. You mustn’t take your life for any reason, should depression or whatever choke you down. It is your life, but it is not yours. This is strange right? Ponder! It all balls down to the garage of depression where problems and frustration shadows you into the vehicle of isolation whose last bus-top is SUICIDE.
Depression gives a small thing a big shadow. A good Psychologist (Name Withheld) defined depression as a minor mental disorder categorized by persistent loss of interest in daily activities, causing significant impairment in daily life.
Depression could also be lack of motivation or losing interests in things that brings you joy. Depression is like a moving vehicle in a one-way express road. It may keep the rider faster than those held up in traffic, but his life is in danger of accident and being prosecuted by the Corps. Until the Corp of suicide prosecutes some people, they would keep moving on the one-way express road of depression. Suicide is the end product of virtually all kinds of depression.
No one depressed actually has the power to break free from the shackles of depression. No matter how much or long you fell you can absorb your pain, please don’t. As longs as you are willing to come out of it, open up! Advisably, you may open up to professionals in the field of psychology who doesn’t really know you. You may open up to matured minds in the field of psychology or a responsible Clergy man so that you may be free to talk and open up to them all you’re passing through. However, just open up! Don’t ever try to swallow your bitter pills. It could choke you six feet down the earth. When you can’t handle your emotional and psychological wrecks, it may lead to suicide.
Conclusively, the popular saying; “There’s a mood for every music and a music for every mood” is the truth, but would not be a fact neither would it be a help-in-time-of-trouble when you are in the shackles of depression. Music would never cure depression. It may only give you temporal relief. Nonetheless, she could rob you of your true love. Depression could use a toy gun to rob you of your true ascetics; she had done it, she is doing it and she shall keep doing it, but don’t fall prey. Don’t be a victim. Depression is like a cesspool. Once you fall into it, you may never get out.
Speak up, O depressed! Say “NO” to depression and Suicide.
