SUICIDE ATTEMPTS AND SUICIDE DEATH
Suicide can be preventable since infancy. Having caring parents and relatives who really love their children and look out for them, creating an optimal and loving environment for their healthy and happy growth.
However, this almost seems like a difficult dream in the world we live in. But it is not impossible, we have to have hope, always, and have love, for ourselves, our children, our family and friends.
But, even when we have had been raised in loving homes by caring parents, in a healthy social and mental environment bad things happen to good people as we all know: a failed marriage, the death of a loved one, the loss of work or income, a traumatic accident; things that could trigger an acute depression and if not treated immediately it could develop into a severe case of suicidal depression.
When a friend, a child, a patient, anybody tells us that “I don’t want to live anymore”, or that “I am going to kill myself tonight or tomorrow”, we have the responsibility as human beings to believe him/her and help in anyway possible and as soon as possible.
“There is a critical window in which depressed patients who are suicidal need rapid relief to prevent self-harm,” said Michael Grunebaum, MD, a research psychiatrist at CUMC, who led the study.
“Currently available antidepressants can be effective in reducing suicidal thoughts in patients with depression, but they can take weeks to have an effect. Suicidal, depressed patients need treatments that are rapidly effective in reducing suicidal thoughts when they are at highest risk.
Currently, there is no such treatment for rapid relief of suicidal thoughts in depressed patients.” — Read more here
“Take the pain and grow beauty…You know I’ve always loved volcanoes. I love how they spew searing, deadly lava that goes on to nurture the most beautiful landscapes on earth. It’s from searing pain that the deepest beauty can sprout”
― Carrie Firestone,
I certainly have no doubt that life is beautiful and the majority of humans are and want to be kind with one another, and every moment – a celebration of being alive, but one should be always be ready to face all kinds of adversity and transform them into challenges. A person who has not encountered difficulties in life can never achieve success. So, cheer up!
Dear reader, think more about your own life. We have to make ourselves conscious that we have a great opportunity given and that we should take every step necessary to make our lives even more beautiful, instead of constantly dealing with the negative aspects of our lives. If we risk an even closer look onto our lives we might even notice that it is already really amazing!
I am wondering what the prevailing opinions are on this topic. In my opinion the possible options are:
1) An afterlife of some sort.
3) Karmic reincarnation.
Personally, I hope there’s an afterlife of some sort. But nothing has been proven. The First Law of thermodynamics: “Energy cannot be created or destroyed, it can only be changed from one form to another.”—Einstein, would only “prove” that even mosquitoes would have an afterlife? Or maybe that energy is just different, human energy more evolved, recycled/transformed?
There are so many areas to explore, in physics, medicine, biology, chemistry, philosophy. I am currently studying quantum physics, space-time, and these theories make my brain wonder even more about life and death: 1) The Parallel Universes Theory and 2) The String Theory
So, scientifically I don’t have any answers, But I hope there is something amazingly better “out there” that our brains cannot comprehend yet, something that science still needs to explore and discover. Some sort of evolved energy we are transformed to after we die, maybe?
Our earth is beautiful indeed. The human body and all living organisms are amazing. But the behavior of humanity can be so disappointing and harmful to many that it would be pointless if this life were the only one we have to.
And if it is, then we should all make the best out of it: treat each other with respect, dignity, kindness and loyalty, I would like to evolve, to continue to live, to extend my and others’ life,
To me, every moment of my life is sacred, I live deeply every emotion and thought, pain and joy, I don’t waste my time believing in unicorns, in fairy tails. I hope, because I don’t fear. But I live, and I do it intensely,
Do you know that when we die helium is released after a very interesting and complex chemical decomposition reactions of the human body and it -helium- goes up to the atmosphere and then to the universe? That is a fact.
That being said, I trust science, but I love philosophy and I love my life too, so I will be a life extension for as long as I live and then, I hope, I can only hope… there is an afterlife of some sort.
But there might not be an afterlife after all. Who knows, nobody does.
Lastly, I want to point something out about Dr, Stephen Hawking, whom I have great admiration for his research in science. However, I respectfully disagree when he referred to computers no having an afterlife. I laughed when I read this, I thought that he was joking (he was a funny guy) so I did some research and nope, he wasn’t being funny at all, he was death serious.
How can anyone compare the human brain with a computer in terms of living or dying? But I will give him the benefit of the doubt since he was a very smart guy… I must be misunderstanding his quote?
When it comes to medicine and biology, I have noticed that most physicists make statements I disagree with, Dr. Neil deGrasse Tyson included. Anyways, here is the quote:
Don’t hold yourself back. Embrace your light. Seek your life’s mission. Live your purpose and your life will be full of meaning and joy.
Your purpose, your life’s mission, your calling, whatever words you give it, as long as you’re alive, you have one, and as long as you have one, you might as well pull it out, put it on, and let it shine.
What is YOUR Purpose? What gives your life meaning? If you’re not sure yet, then good for you! You get to discover it! (Exciting, isn’t it?) Ask yourself the following questions:
1) What gives my life the most meaning?
2) What is my passion? What gets me out of bed each day?
3) What do I feel most “at home” doing?
4) What are my strengths/weaknesses? What do these tell me about my purpose?
5) If I have a sense of my purpose, am I actively seeking to engage in it? If not, what is holding me back or standing in my way?
“Finding your purpose” is more than just a cliche or a dream that will never be fulfilled. It’s actually a tool for a better, happier, healthier life that too few people attempt to use.
I know firsthand that nothing else matters if you aren’t following your soul’s purpose. Once you’ve found it, you can align all areas of your life to point in that direction. It is possible to do what you love and live in flow — you just need the right motivation and mindset, and to take the right action.
Stress in your life:
It is important to note that not all stress is bad. Everyone experiences a certain amount of stress on an almost daily basis, and it cannot be completely eliminated.
Stress becomes a problem when too much is experienced, and it has a negative impact on behaviors, relationships, and health.
The term “eustress” refers to positive stress that is associated with improved performance and productivity. “Distress” is negative stress that is associated with performance decrement and negative health consequences.
The individual’s perception of the stressor and coping resources determine whether a situation is eustress or distress.
Some physical signs of stress can often be mistaken to be symptoms of some other issue. So listen closely to what your body is trying to tell you.
Hypocrites have “taught” me to be more careful about trusting so easily.
They have shown me that the world can be beautiful without them in my life.
I am stronger because of their hypocrite self-righteous judgement.
I love it that these people get offended by the truth.
I have learned to appreciate and love the people around me who are truthful, straightforward honest and never deceive me.
The cause of hypocrisy originally stems from insecurity.
Selfishness is a form of insecurity because an overly selfish person needs to take advantage of or withhold resources from others, since they don’t believe they can live their best life being generous and honest.
That implies that they have less trust in their ability to live a comfortable life, meaning they are insecure about their skills.
According to this logic presented, hypocrisy really only originates from insecurity if the two mains causes are insecurity and selfishness.
“People dislike hypocrites because they unfairly use condemnation to gain reputational benefits and appear virtuous at the expense of those who they are condemning –when these reputational benefits are in fact undeserved,”
Explains psychological scientist Jillian Jordan of Yale University, first author on the research.
