What Suicide Really Means

7ED90DDE-03FE-4183-BC5B-7E06746F4E28.jpegWhen it has crossed a man’s mind to put an end to his own existence, he should be aware that three things eagerly press him.  1) He hopes to escape his feelings; 2) He hopes to escape his circumstances; and 3) He hopes to escape himself.  “Suicidal” can then be perceived for its true meaning:  a call for a person to change and recreate themselves.  When we hear someone say the grievous words “I want to die”, they are expressing an intense plea for a new reality.  Unfortunately, many have misperceived this sign as a want to end their physical lives. Our feelings of despair can serve as the point where we make the decision to leave the old self behind and embark on a journey towards living a deeper and more meaningful life.

Purpose

414A2A90-7FBA-4FB5-A713-0D76E7C75DD8Separating our identities from our work is contradictory to nature.  Like any species, our dispositions should always be a reflection of what we do-our life’s work. When we examine a living thing and become captivated by some of its features, we find these parts to be a vital component to what makes its function unique from other animals. The wings of an eagle enable it to soar at high altitudes; the oil of a mechanic’s hands never seem to fully wash away, giving him an advantage of day to day manual labor.  Similarly, what we occupy ourselves with will always manifest in our demeanors.  The man who spends his years in caring and guiding others, by nature, exhudes a psychological and spiritual aura of genuine love.
