Life often get tough no matter how much we wish it never happens to us.
Life happens to the young, old, beautiful, lazy, hardworking, laid-back. In short, every man born of woman is of few days and those days are full of trouble.

.
No one is excluded from the challenges of life. We live in an imperfect world, we are imperfect people, the world seems to be in a place of torpsy-turvy so, naturally, many things we dream of, labour for, hope to achieve ,the goals we set, our set time to marry, graduate, start work, be independent does not happen to us exactly the way we have pre-conceived these events in our heart.
So, when these normal milestones are not met, the human heart becomes broken, a little bit too agitated, hopeless and lifeless.

.
Anyone who has stayed long on the surface of the earth would know that there are surely seasons in life. A time to be happy and a time to be sad. There is also a time when everything you set your hands on fall into line easily and there comes another time, when everything fails.

.
When it fails, know that it is not about you. It is not that you did/are doing anything wrong. It is not about not thinking it through. It is just because life happens at some critical point in our existence. Life can happen to us anytime without giving a prior notice.

.
So many people have resorted to suicide in recent times. Suicide happens as a result of depression. When you meditate too much on your problems it can lead to a temporary/permanent state of insanity.
Fine, life is going to get tough at some point. We are going to lose people who matter to us, who we think we cannot do without, we are going to sometimes fail in business or school. But whatever the case, what should be our attitude when life gets tough?

.
1. No season in life lasts forever

.
There is seed time and harvest time. There is a time for everything under the sun. In good times, rejoice, have fun but be sensible. When bad time comes, consider, wait, ponder. Remember the good times in the past no matter how insignificant it looks and be hopeful. Be thankful.

.

There is no season in life that would not end. If it looks bad today, the story will change again if you are patient. If the future looks bleak now, its because you imagine it to be so. That problem will pass away, a solution would come. Suicide is never an option. Rather it is a waste. It is a lack of belief in the almighty. It is an act of giving up.
2. Hope never dies, it works all the time

.
A man without hope is already dead while living. Hope is the spiritual and physical temperature that keeps a human being alive. Hope shows you what you can become. Hope opens a window of fresh possibilities. Hope leads you into a time of refreshing. Hope keeps you from thinking your life is over.

.
3. There is a God that controls the universe

.
Man was not wired to exist without his maker. Man is empty, his journey is futile without God. It is only the unseen God that gives hope, fresh beginning, new life. A man’s life is meaningless until he acknowledges his creator. He fixes the dots. He makes everything new again. He controls the universe and he will always come through, no matter how long.

.
4. Joy is the electricity of life

.
Never allow the enemy, economicrecession, joblessness, lack of electricity, loneliness to steal your joy. Happiness is a choice. Happy people don’t have the best of everything. They only decide to be happy with what they have.

Have you lost a loved one? Lost a job? never found love? searching for love? do not give up. Suicide is evil. It is not the purpose of your maker.

.

Suicide is a means of preventing you from entering that glorious destiny. Suicide wants to cut you away from a great divine manifestation. Remember, after the sorrow, trials, depression comes the glory, fulfillment and joy unspeakable. It is only a bend in your journey. It is a temporary phase. This too shall pass.
