Hello everyone it’s Zainab here, welcome or welcome back to the blog! I know it’s been a while since I had done a ‘World Issues’ post on my blog – so I wanted to talk about a really important topic: Suicide. But more importantly, preventing it. My blog is all about positivity, and I completely understand that not everyone reading it is always positive (myself included!) so, this post will hopefully help people whether they’re in a really bad headspace or they’re starting to have these dark thoughts!
I don’t want to put just facts and figures about preventing suicide in this post, I want you guys to hopefully feel better or maybe even slightly happier after reading this post, and feel able to talk to someone or an organisation!
Why Should Suicide Be Prevented?
Suicide should be prevented for honestly one of the simplest reasons – your life matters. I understand that someone who may be feeling suicidal will find this extremely hard to believe, but it’s true! I’m not trying to use the cliche ‘everyone has a purpose in life’ but what I’m saying is, you deserve to be here in this world.
You might not realise it, but without realising, you’ve probably touched so many people without realising. Whether it’s your family and close friends or a random person you helped on the street – in your life you’ve touched one person (at least!) So, if not for you, stay for them!
There’s always someone, whether you realise or not, ready to listen to you and be able to help as best as they can!
