Stephen Wise strictly warned: SUICIDE IS NOT A SOLUTION TO EMOTIONAL MALADIES!

Sir I am really confused and tired of life… I feel that me, serving God is not showing in me. Sir, is suicide the best option to rest from emotional torture? This was a challenging question I received from an emotionally depressed fellow shortly before this article.


Suicide is a complex issue involving numerous factors and should not be attributed to any one single cause. Not all people who die by suicide have been diagnosed with a mental illness and not all people with a mental illness attempt to end their lives by suicide.
People who experience suicidal thoughts and feelings are suffering with tremendous emotional pain. People who have died by suicide typically had overwhelming feelings of hopelessness, despair, and helplessness. Suicide is not about a moral weakness or a character flaw. People considering suicide feel as though their pain will never end and that suicide is the only way to stop the suffering.

Bertrand Russell (1872-1970) once said: “of all forms of caution, caution in love is perhaps the most fatal to true happiness.” LOVE – to starry-eyed romantics - is a feeling of sheer ecstasy. Love, they believe, is strictly an affair of the heart, something that cannot be understood, just experienced. Love conquers all and brings everlasting happiness. And no doubt about it, falling in love can be a unique experience.
