Why should someone commit suicide? -suicide and depression,suicide attempt,

 In the early hours of Wednesday morning,in the 23rd day of May 2017,the cold bloody news has it that a young man committed suicide in an uncompleted building at the Ijaiye area of Lagos state. Residents of the area woke up to find his body dangling from the ceiling of the building. Why on earth should someone commit suicide in this world?  For those who do not know,''Suicide is the act of intentionally causing one's own death. Risk factors include mental disorders such as depression, bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, personality disorders, alcoholism, substance misuse, and use of benzodiazepines.''


The reasons given above as the causes of suicide are not enough for someone to take his or her own life. How can someone suffering from mental  disorder know that everything is not alright with him and the next thing he thinks about is to take his own life? This risk factor is so risky,and unbelievable. We in all our researches and studies have not seen a mad man who takes his own life,even when these are the kind of people that we may call the most hopeless individuals on earth.

On the other hand however,the major reason why people commit suicide is to end their shameful life. Yes,while finally hanging themselves,most of them would usually drop some written notes to whoever it may concern to tell why he has chosen  to end his or her life in suicide. ''My boyfriend abandons me for my best friend and I can't take the shame and embarrassment''. Others would say ''I was told how my body was picked in a gutter as a mad man,only to be taken to a psychiatric hospital for treatment. I can't face the embarrassment and shame of ever knowing that I was once a mad man''  These are some of the reasons why people commit suicide. Read more: why suicide cannot bring a course of justice
