To get over the Mother-Father combination of depression and hopelessness, it takes more than pills, it takes a consciousness. Sure, I do not deny that the medication can help at times, but it takes a consciousness to get over the two worst things in life. Indeed, it not only takes a consciousness, but, a steadfast and patient developing and working with that consciousness to make it strong enough to win against that combination of depression and hopelessness.
I know of whence I write and talk about, because I actually suffer from clinical depression and chronic hopelessness. I take medication for depression, but I know that the medication cannot do it alone, I have to genuinely help it along through my positive, patient actions and know that there is a light at the end of the hopeless tunnels that life seems to present me with. All I can do with the hopelessness is work and reason my way out of it slowly, but surely like a “tortoise” and not try to rush through it and take it lightly like a “rabbit” or “hare”. Also, giving up is never an option however many hard spots there are. For, if there are hard spots and questions in life, they are able to be solved or the answers can always be found to the questions.
Naturally, if there is a problem to be solved there is ultimately a solution, a genuine solution as there are answers to all questions asked.
For if depression and hopelessness exist, so do their opposites as answers to them: Hopefulness and happiness/courage to live. Like I said above, for every question there is an answer and a reality that counters a horrible situation if looked long, rightly and hard enough for. Reality is a whole, not parts. Existence is a whole, not parts. So, when I say Mother and Father combinations, I mean this whole: The complete picture of reality that is not one-sided or partial to the Mother part or Father part. I mean just that, the totality of reality.
So, that brings me to a point: Suicide is always a hasty, incompletely understood action that is foolish. I am totally against it because of the total nature of reality, instead of escaping problems, they should be solved with patience, understanding and tolerance instead of foolish and destructive escape without even a genuine and real attempt at solving a thing.
Now, I am not saying suffer from a terminal illness whatever the cost, nothing like that. I am saying that problems can be solved by working with reality when feasible, possible and logical.
For example, I’ve known people who have committed suicide over easily solvable problems that only take determination, understanding and work to overcome.
But, if anyone has a terminal physical illness that involves destructive and unnecessary suffering that is not needed. That is the only time that I advocate anything resembling “escape” or assisted death.
Whatever the situation in life we must all make a choice in reality, it is that simple. Will we let our problems overtake us, or will we chart our own right course in life when we have the capacity? After all, hope is created, not born, so is hopelessness, so they can both be changed through our actions really. As long as we can create hope and take productive action, there is life, not just mere existence.
