” Whatever you give to life, it gives you back.Do not hate anybody, the hatred which comes out from you will someday comeback to you. Love others and love will come back to you.”
Last Saturday while waiting for my Rhen to finish his dessert I was able to watch a true to life story from a local network. My interest caught by it because the main character commits suicide because of depression.
(Source thanks to Wikipedia):
Depression is a state of low mood and aversion to activity that can have a negative effect on a person’s thoughts, behavior, feelings, world view, and physical well-being. Depressed people may feel sad, anxious, empty, hopeless, worried, helpless, worthless, guilty, irritable, hurt, or restless. They may lose interest in activities that once were pleasurable, experience loss of appetite or overeating, have problems concentrating, remembering details, or making decisions, and may contemplate or attempt suicide.
She committed it because after nine long years of dedicating herself for the job she lost it and everything became rough because of it, until her mother died and all her investment gone. No family of her own, and feeling alone pushed her to jump in a train station. I feel sorry for her, for her family and for what she did. And I am praying for her that she may rest in peace now.
I knew the feeling of losing everything because it happened to me when my father died, we literary lost everything. But at a younger age, I and my siblings hold hand in hand to strive and coped little by little. I am very much thankful to my mother who remains stronger and guide us no matter how things became harder.
In our everyday life we are facing so many challenges, it is depends on us on how to face it. But I guess aside from my mother’s love and determination what made us stronger was the faith that we had to our Almighty Father our Lord our God. He will never leave us, his always there to support, give us strength and courage. Problem is always there, it is part of our life but instead of counting all the negative things, try to count your blessings, look around you and feel the wonders of being alive. There is always a way to live and be alive.
For some 2012 was not that good including some part of mine, but even if, life must go on and everyday is full of hope and promises. It is in our goal and determination to move on and keep moving. Well, I must admit it is not easy to try again and face new challenges, don’t afraid to try again, to works hard and start.
