Of late people are coming out of their shells and talking about it. Suicide or causes like depression is no more a taboo in society. There are many campaigns, seminars being held. #Suicide awareness posts being put up on social networking sites.
But the question that lingers in my mind is, Is it effective?
Is it really helping in depleting the monster ( suicide)?
Yes, it’s helping, but the process is slow. People are sharing posts about depression, suicide, but the major question arises is
Are you really pulling someone out of the darkness or just doing propaganda on Facebook for getting likes.
People the major way to come out of depression or the evil thought lies within you. No counselor, no medicines will work till you are willing to rise. As the monster doesn’t lie under your bed but it lies within your head.
No matter what the reason may be, seek help, talk but ending life isn’t a solution.
