From the reports we read everyday, suicide is certainly on the rise in Nigeria and more lives are being lost to suicide than ever. It is time to talk more about it and address issues that are causing this increase.
Mavis Amarachi is a young woman who has attempted suicide a few times but survived, and now she is sharing her story to encourage others.
5-12-18 was the day I gave up on life.
I gave up on my mom, my brother, and my friends. I was tired of Life, Family, Everything. I have tried overdosing myself with series of drugs twice, but God will always send my mom to my rescue. I have been battling with depression for the past 6months. At first I tried cutting myself with blades to feel better, it helped a bit tho. One, two, three till it became a habit.
Yesterday I took the worst step of my life, I headed to law school bridge lekki to end it all. When I got there I said to myself “yes this is my final bustop”. But my Gracious God said No that he has plans for me. He sent his Angels to take charge over me, two policemen and a brother, they came at the peak of time. Then I realized God’s purpose for me. I realized I was selfish I never thought about the pain my mom would go through, what about my brother.
I realized I only have God to talk to, the Almighty who is faithful in his words. I have learnt to talk to him when I’m down, he would listen and won’t judge me, he would give me peace of mind and solution to all my problems. I alone knows what am going through and I have only God to turn to.
Please try and reach out to your loved ones, call and text them people are going through a lot you know nothing about. Help me share this in every way you can, media, group chat, Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram. Help me save a life. No problem, No one is worth stressing nor dying for. GOD IS THE ONLY WAY
