The CEO of Hero radio Sam West has opened up about his personal life; revealing that he lost his brother to depression a few years ago.
Through his Instagram page the fella went on to share a well detailed post advising those who have been struggling with depression; but never get to talk about it. He went on to open up saying;
As someone who lost a brother through suicide I needed to weigh in and speak to someone who is contemplating on suicide at the moment.
According to Sam West so many people struggle on the low but never push themselves to committing suicide; because every situation in life is temporary no matter how painful it is!
No matter how much pain you’re experiencing right now, you’re not alone. Many of us have had suicidal thoughts at some point in our lives. Feeling suicidal is not a character defect, and it doesn’t mean that you are crazy, or weak, or flawed. It only means that you have more pain than you can cope with right now. But with time and support, you can overcome your problems and the pain and suicidal feelings will pass.
He went on to add;
Some of the finest, most admired, needed, and talented people have been where you are now. Many of us have thought about taking our own lives when we’ve felt overwhelmed by depression and devoid of all hope. But the pain of depression can be treated and hope can be renewed.
There is always a solution
In Sam’s post he makes it clear that a person has the power to choose or not choose what he wants to even when depressed. However death has never been an answer; therefore it is important to face whatever life throws at a person.
No matter what your situation, there are people who need you, places where you can make a difference, and experiences that can remind you that life is worth living. It takes real courage to face death and step back from the brink. You can use that courage to face life, to learn coping skills for overcoming depression, and for finding the strength to keep going.
He then concluded by reminding people that pain and unhappiness is part of life; but is always temporary!
Although it might seem as if your pain and unhappiness will never end, it is important to realize that crises are usually temporary. Solutions are often found, feelings change, unexpected positive events occur. Remember: suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Give yourself the time necessary for things to change and the pain to subside.
