Thoughtful Tuesday

I have never really understood why we all say that our dead dear ones are at a better place, (no hard feelings to anyone’s believes)
Its also said that the richest place on earth is the graveyard,
Does it mean that all good things are with the already dead?

Look at that person who think they can not take it anymore So they decide to end their misery by taking away their lives 🙁
How do you prefer the unknown while you can stick around and work things out?
If this life was too much for you, what makes you think that you can make it through the other life?
Once a quitter always a quitter.

Maybe its a better place, we will never know for sure till we get there,
But what I know is that we can make it better here while we can still breathe,
You are a better person at a better place doing a better thing,
Just code it into your system and you will be better programmed.

Its okay to believe that there’s a better place after this life, But that should not hinder you from serving your purpose and enjoying the current life. Think about it.

Live one day at a time,
One step at a time,
Its much easier that way and well accomplished,
Live, learn and succeed.

Enjoy the present, forget the past and avoid worry too much about the future. ☺🙂

  1. Well depends how are lives are going,are we having more problems or we have more luck.For instant if you ever read about Lamar Odom-basketball player is surrounded with death.His mother past away while he was a kid,his grandma-who raised him past away early,his good friend died in a car accident,his son past away after three moths of life and so on.How someone who has so many death around himself wish to live any longer.Nobody is a quitter,but our mental health is the strongest link and if that link breaks it is hard to continue further.I agree life is the best reward,but sometimes is torturing you by crossing the limits.Good post by the way !

    1. Thoughtful indeed but I also think we can be able to withstand the extreme difficulties that may face us if we handled them correctly. Death is not the answer but an escape plan… Thanks a lot, life can offer tough times a times

  2. You have presented a lot of food for thought and reflection. I cannot imagine what goes through a mind that has decided that it is better to be dead but unfortunately I know that a few friends and one family member made this fatal decision and the mystery is never really solved. We were devastated and surprised. We did not see any of what professionals call the warning signs. I believe that people deal and manage pain in different ways and no matter what we do to prevent the tragedy of suicide we are helpless when a person is so deeply hurting and perhaps disturbed. I believe we just need to bring the conversation out in the open and truly be honest about mental illness and the depression. We whisper about it most of the time. We need to communicate more and be mindful of what deep pain truly looks like. Thanks for stopping by Poemattic and thanks for your post.

  3. People who commit suicide are trying to end the pain. It is also a mental health condition not mind over matter. They have no control over their thoughts or actions if they did they would not try to kill themselves. People are more sympathetic to somebody suffering with cancer, heart disease, diabetes or any physical illness as opposed to mental illness. As long as the stigma is there people under intense physical strain will not be able to get health. And Yes I do believe those who endure endless suffering on this earth are in a better place once they die. For some people This Earth, This Life is hell. Hell is not a place you go to for you’re already there. Suicides are not cowards. They are Not Quitters. After all you don’t know what they’ve been going through for years and years. More than likely they have tried to get help unsuccessfully. They have reached out and there was no one there. For them there is only one way out. Mental illness just like cancer or heart attack often ends in death. Thankfully I believe God is a lot more merciful than human beings. God knows that you’ve done all that you can do so the door to Heaven is open.

    1. That’s why its important to take care of our mental health. As much as they may be unable to overcome the suicidal urge, am sure if they are timely helped, they can survive it. I know a friend who almost killed themselves but was saved after being rushed to the hospital on time. He admitted that its very fulfilling while making that decision to finally end their life but when he finally hung down and felt life escaping him, he wished he could reverse the process. He was able to see life at a different angle. Nowadays, he spend his time speaking to the youth especially those who seems to have given up.

  4. I know a lot about the subject because my mother tried to commit suicide and so have I. Believe me if there were some type of magic pill to cure mental illness I would have found it by now. And Yes I’ve been through years of therapy. Sometimes intervention works. Other times it does not. Now that I’m older I understand a lot more and have compassion for those struggling. I know the Struggle on a personal level. Also the Mental Health situation in the USA is a mess. It is very difficult to get the help you need plus all the doctors do here is give you pills. Yes I know the situation on a very personal level. I’m sure now you have a different opinion of me. But the face of suicide are the people you work with, go to school with, your neighbors and the people you sit next to in church or your house of worship. But we have to hide because we are always being judged. The Judgment is worse that our internal struggles.

    1. In Kenya , the support is next to invisible. A lot has to be done. Am happy your mum and you were able to overcome it. Lets keep showing compassion and helping those in need to understand that there’s always a safer way out. Thanks dear for sharing, you have saved many souls . Thanks a lot

  5. I am also a United States Army Veteran. I’m a Peacetime Veteran but I understand the struggles of Combat Veterans. PTSD is no joke. You’d think the USA would be more proactive in helping all Veterans but that is not necessarily so. People look at the surface and don’t see the iceberg underneath. Veterans are Thanked for our service on specific holidays but Veterans also have a high suicide rate. Where is the help that many Veterans so desperately need? Only Lip service very little practical help. So there are many factors to suicide. Many. Even in a country as rich, wealthy and powerful as the USA services go lacking for those who need them most.

  6. I was in the mental ward of a local hospital for two weeks back in 2015. It was like being trapped inside a prison horror movie. Every day I was terrified and afraid. Believe me I was glad when I was released. Yes in the USA there are therapists, doctors, hospitals and of course pills, America is big on pills but the entire Mental Health Field needs a complete overhaul. I’m sure some therapists and psychiatrists are honest but some are only in the business for whatever the insurance companies will reimburse them.

    My Mom was also hospitalized for schizophrenia way back in the 60s when I was a little girl. Thinks were even more primitive then. In 1998 my Mother died from pancreatic cancer. She was only 68 years old. Finally her mental and physical suffering was over. As much as I miss her she truly is in a better place.

  7. We all should be the best people we can be and appreciate the lives we were given. While we shouldn’t stress over the future, we need to take care of things to ensure the future (this planet) is a good one for generations to come.

  8. Some good points you have. However, personally, I’d say my sister is well rested. She was just 19 and I had to watch her suffer for one whole year deteriorating to the point I couldn’t look at her without shedding a tear. Her kidneys were chronic and doctors couldn’t save her despite the dialysis and medication that she followed religiously. She suffered so much and nothing could be done. You could clearly tell doctors were just buying time as ruthless as it sounds. She didn’t deserve to suffer at such a young age. When she passed away, it was so hard to stomach, but till date, I’ll say that she’s in a better place. In the hands of her creator who gives us bread and butter… who we pray to every single day. She’s well rested.

    1. In this scenario, she us definitely at a a better place. The rest brought an end to her suffering. Some people use death in a bad way like an escape plan from the life challenges, if someone is of good health I would advocate they fight through the issue.
