There are a number of reasons why people take their own lives. It can be caused by extreme depression, brought on by feelings of low self-worth – money issues – the fact that your life isn’t going the way you want . It can be the result of impulsive behavior – a cry for help – an actual psychotic disorder, like schizophrenia.
We all may have thought at some time or another that the world would be better off without us, but God has a different way of thinking. He wants us to live a rich and full life. He doesn’t want to see us as hopeless individuals who just give up. He has a plan for each life that exists on this planet and He has even given us the faith to trust in Him for direction in our lives.
When we try to control our own destiny, I think God must feel very sad, for He wants us to lean on Him in every trouble. Suicide is in fact a selfish act, which affects everyone who has been left behind.
I am sorry to hear of another unnecessary death of one of the world’s celebrities, but my sadness extends to those who lost this talented man as well. May God give them peace and comfort during this difficult time.
