  3. People should learn to confide in someone when they feel frustrated or depressed and not just taking their lives just like that. Leaving the family to suffer the pain of losing them.

  4. Another one gone. Is suicide really the only option? People should learn to communicate more

  5. Most people think suicide is the end of their sorrow and pain, forgetting suicide transfers the pains to other people who are their loved ones!
