There is nothing in life that is worth taking your life for

Atunyota Alleluya Akpobome popularly known by his stage name as Ali Baba has taken to his Instagram account to explain his thoughts on suicide and suicide notes. A post shared recently showing a dark background picture of a knotted rope and a hand trying to hang self. He wrote:

Lately, I have seen a rise, in the number of suicide notes left on DMs and comments sections.
_
Most of the notes always say they have suffered and they have tried everything they could.
_
Some have come up with a position that they should not be ignored. In fact that such people should be contacted immediately to stop them from going through with the suicide.
_
I understand that part of being sympathetic to the state of mind of the people who contemplate suicide. What I don’t then understand is what is the decision mental to achieve?
_
Dont get me wrong. Everybody has different thresh hold for pain. But what I am asking is, does it solve or resolve anything… truly???
_
Few days ago, I heard of a Man who committed suicide because the caught his wife cheating on him.
_
So, now that he is dead, abeg, his point is? She Will get the message? Its over his dead body for her to cheat on him? She Will live with the guilt? She will not cheat again? She will call off the relationship? She will be celibate for life? What is his dying going to achieve?
_
Another guy, recently, was so depressed with the debts he owed and took his life by jumping into the 3RD mainland bridge. Really?
_
@gbengaadeyinka1stgcon and I were told on Sunday, that a Lady overdosed because her bobo or husband said he was not doing again. The lady that told us, asked “Shey ole toyen ni?”, as in, is it that serious?
_
Now the common one I see online is, “I cannot feed my children. They have not eaten for 2 days. So I WILL just end it all”. Now, just for clarity, when you pass on, will the children eat from your WILL?
_
Let me even talk to the men who commit suicide, when they hear that one person somewhere, is planning to blackmail them, for having an affair. I think that is unfair. To you, to your family, to society and to God.
_
Except, Well, if you raped somebody… especially those who rape 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10 any Year old and decide to kill themselves from shame. Just do it. Good riddance.
_
My point is, there is nothing in life that is worth taking your life for. Even people who say, “you dont know what they are going through”, know that when there is life there is hope.
_
Live life! Live long!!

The Angel’s Whisper

A baby was sleeping, Its mother was weeping, For her husband was far on the wild raging sea; And the tempest was swelling Round the fisherman’s dwelling, And she cried, “Dermot, darling, oh! Come back to me.”   Her beads while she number’d, The baby still slumber’d, And smile in […]
