Mark 12:31-32

Mark 12:31-32 - 'And you shall love the LORD our God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.' That is the first commandment. "And the second, like it, is this : 'You shall love your neighbor as yourself.' There is no other commandment greater than these."

Suicidal Thoughts?

Quote of the day : Tough time never last, but tough people do! - Robert H. Schuller

Life is fragile. Yes, no doubt about it. Everyday people are dying around the world. Young or old, we are ought to die one day as well. But still, we are alive now and we should make full use of the live that God gave us!

I just don't understand why some people choose to end their life when they are still healthy and breathing? Everyday, we strive to survive in this world. Many others fight for their life just to live a little longer and some even wanted to live so badly that they can't even leave this world in peace. So why they choose to end their life when they are given the chance to live a better life?

I gotten the news that one of my hi-bye friend from University committed suicide yesterday. He is working at Singapore as well, and the last time I meet him was about like 2 months ago? We are not close, but no doubt it somehow had an impact on me. He seems to be a nice guy, sporting, having a degree, a job, healthy and a life! So I don't see why he choose to end his life. Working stress? Oh come on, he is just 24 this year, haven't even work for 1 year! Just change a job! Why suicide?

Its sad that I lost a friend just like that. Why nobody know that he is suffering from the inside? Why can't he share his problem with all the friends he have at Singapore? Why he never think about those that are left in this world when he is gone? A lot of why goes unanswered.

Tough time never last, but tough people do! - Robert H. Schuller

This is not just a quote, in fact it is a book you can easily find at bookstore. I have yet to read this book, but I bet it does help when life gets tough. I have read the other book by the same author, The Be-Happy Attitude, and is one of the best book I have read so far.

Everyone faces problem no matter who you are, rich or poor, but not everyone are unhappy!

Set your expectation lower, be easy on yourself! You have the power to choose to be happy or the other way round. Don't hide at home! Go out meet people, hook out with friends, join a local church or social club, and there are a lot of things you can do to change your life! Hiding at home alone will just make the situation worse. What is the worse sentence in the world? Solitary confinement!

Shit happens, not just to you but me as well, and everybody else. But how we look at the situation determines how we will react to it. Remember, you control your life! As long as we are alive, we can make a difference.

May you rest in peace, my friend.
