40 Reasons Why Suicide is not an Option

TW: Mentions of Suicide, Death, and Trauma


Suicide. This is a term we heard extensively last year. It came into light after what happened with the Bollywood actor Sushant Singh Rajput. Whatever his reason for taking such a big step is still unknown but what I do know is that suicide is not the option. The actor must be going through something terrible that drove him to do this. Just like 800,000 people that pass away from suicide every year.


It would be greatly inhuman to say that what happened to them was just because they weren’t “brave” enough to handle it. They might be driven to do this because “They had no other choice” and that they felt it was easier than enduring the hardships they were facing. Although, the stars do shine the brightest when it’s dark.


So, I’m here to tell you that there are 40 reasons why you shouldn’t take this major step.


  1. It would break your parents and siblings

  2. Your best friend will miss you greatly

  3. Your pets will feel empty and will be devoid of their owner

  4. You get to tell your story and inspire others struggling with the same thing as you

  5. You can seek a therapist and get professional help which will help you over time.

  6. You get to travel the world and do things you’d never be able to do if you took the step.

  7. You get to graduate and go to college or start work!

  8. You get to marry and have your own children
