In the worst times when you feel you want to die,think of all the reasons why you should live. Why do you have to live? Or is it why do you want to live?
Calculate your years of existence into minutes, it is quite long right? Imagine what have you done with those minutes, did you make most out of it? Think about it, every minute you waste is a chance you throw away. Why? Because time is life itself and the moment you use time carelessly is a life you are misleading and a life you are destroying. Many people wanted to extend their lives because theirs are limited, how about yours? Why are you ending it early?
When something bad happens, don’t end your life immediately because you are not an animal and worse, you are not a machine that when something bad situates it blows off and dies! Remember that you are a man who still got options when experiencing one. You are a person with capabilities to move on with what’s happened and think of all the chances there is at hand and ahead. Life is time. Life is chances. Life is both pain and happiness. Life is when you start living with a purpose. Life is a struggle. Life drives us all crazy. There is a lot more definitions about life but one thing is for sure: there is more to life than living. No matter what life you have at present: bad or good you always need to move on because life does not wait for everyone and what hurts is, we can only have it once. Truth is life will slap you hard with reality because it is not a fairy tale at all but you will always be the lead character of your life. So this is some of the million reasons why you should see and live life positively and shan’t waste it.
Are you wasting yours right now? And if having trouble today makes you want to die already let us see what you do when something happens not according to plan. Let us assess now.
What people mostly do when something bad happens :
-You cry and cry again like a lot.
-You’ll ask: Why does it have to be me? Why!? and you asked yourself again of all the Whys in life.
-You feel like dying.
– You channel out your anger to the people you love.
– You start blaming anything or anyone around.
-You start to hate what you see.
– You start enumerating all the ‘what ifs’.
– You’d regret and hate yourself.
– You’d think there is nothing left for you to live anymore because you don’t have the life you wanted.
– You decide to stop living life and worse is, you decide to end it.
How many of these things are you doing? If you got perfect, you are a proud genuine ‘emo’ person. If you count it, its total is ten. And when you do 8 and above of these things, think that each item consumes time. My point is , the more you scored is the more percentage you have wasted your time and most probably your life. It is okay to do one or two of these things but it’s way over the line if you do more than seven. You just let the world eat you up. Each item may consume around 2-3 hours and some items even take longer. It depends on the situation how much these things will cause to drag you down but every single item consumes time. Calculate yours. How much time have you wasted?
We, humans always stumble along the way so it is normal to fail or disappoint everyone but if we tend to make it as a habit then it is now stupidity. In life, we got to see everything depending to what perspective we are using and to how we want our life to be. My point is whatever you instill in your mind, bad or good will always reflect to what life you will have. Instill positivity in you to have a positive life. Instead of doing the list above when something bad happens, why not do these:
-Pray and pray of how you feel
-cry and sleep and sleep again
-eat and eat until your stomach can’t take it anymore
-watch movies or go shopping or go somewhere where you can shout and channel out your anger
-read a novel or anything
-Read a motivation book, blogs or best, the bible
-do the chores and keep busy
-translate what you experienced into words and blog it
-watch motivational videos or start a series
-Pray every time
It is better if you just do the latter and you can be productive at the same time without wasting time. You can even customize the list according to your likes. Whatever you put make sure it gives you the good vibes which you badly need. Make a list that consists of what you want to do or any doing that can make you smile or laugh until you break. Read this list when you have a bad mood then do it. You can always outwin this problem because it is in your warrior blood. So fight it and live life to the fullest. No suicide please!
No suicide please!
That is what I decided as a title for this blog post because I consider vices that consumes the better way of living life as a suicide. When you think of all the bad things like trying out drugs or clubbing just to channel out the bad vibes are forms of suicide(my opinion). Nowadays, I have observed in the news that there are many people who commits suicide everyday and this is very alarming! People end their lives to end their problems which is so wrong. Problems should be solved by facing them and attacking them and not letting it pass. We are warriors in nature. We are strong. We are amazing. We are rational beings. We are capable of doing beyond expected. We are extraordinary because we are all the creatures of God who were given enough wisdom to choose what is best for us. We just need to use it. We are not alone because there is someone who loves us most more than any fellow can in this whole universe. He is always there to guide but just remember that God helps those who help themselves. Stand up now and be brave.
So readers take note:
No suicide please!
