Suicide is not a solution

Aurangzeb Shahzad
Life is very beautiful either if you’re are in trouble or at the peak of happiness. Every stage has its own beauty and every stage gives us a lifelong lesson. It is true that there comes really hard time in one’s life when every door seems closed for him/her. But one can find a solution to overcome that difficulty if he/she acts optimistically. Mostly, it happens in teenage and one forgets his/her existence and blindly follows strong emotions that come in mind on that very moment. Definitely, when a person blindly follows such thoughtless mind, of course, the result will be very shocking and this is the moment when we extinguish the illumination of our life.
Life is very beautiful, that one cannot imagine without undergoing deep experiences of hardships. If one is in trouble today, he needs to keep one thing in mind that every beginning has an end, so he has to keep patience.
When we have a on Chitral, we see suicide cases increasing on a daily base. Every year, almost 15 people commit suicide and majority of them are women. This is indeed an alarming moment for the residents and proper initiatives need to be taken to overcome the issue. It’s a fact that this act is enough to destroy so many lives. Our administration needs to work on this and tackle the issue.
But here rises a question that if one attempts suicide does he/she find it the only solution to the problem? The answer is definitely No?
Of course, this is not the way to face problems and this is not the way to fight with ups and downs of life. Even after getting so much education, after listening to or watching so many motivational speeches, if one still attempts suicide, it means he/she is a loser nothing else, because that individual doesn’t have the courage to fight, doesn’t have faith in him/herself. He/she thinks if a failure or something else happens, how can he/she face people’s comments which seem like he/she is living people’s life, instead of focusing on oneself and one’s family. This remains the victims’ focus to ponder again and again that “what will people say?”
This short sentence has ruined so many lives, but it feels like, it is not the sentence, rather it is one’s thoughtless mind that destroys a life.
These are the ups and downs, which we call life. If one doesn’t face difficulties then how can he/she comes to know about the value of happiness. 
We have seen so many girls who were even raped and they are still alive because they know that if they attempted suicide except their cases being closed nothing will happen and the perpetrators will get benefit from it.
Personally, I’m witness to so many CSS/PMS aspirants who spent their precious time and failed to get through but are still alive and are living good lives. Moments of failing in CSS/PMS, medical/engineering tests are not the sunset of life. Apart from these, there are so many fields, where individuals can and are free to appear.
I don’t know why I feel like it’s becoming a trend in our area that if someone fails in a subject or scores less marks, he/she lacks with ways to deal with it except attempting suicide.
This is not the way to face problems. Imagine, if we lose minimum 15 people in a year, then we have to wait for a holocaust, which will negatively affect the whole society. So, what we need to focus is; life is so beautiful, which never deserves to be vanished the way we see.
Suicide should not be the solution and it’s not the solution.

    Well done for a lovely write up, a person learns more from failures than success. We should have bigger space for failures than success in our daily lives. Accepting failures than successes gracefully is the real education. Once successful we stop working hard and become lazy and static, however failures keep us working harder everyday till we achieve our goal. This is the responsibility of parents and teachers to create that space among youth. We should accept life with problems and life with out short cut. Life has to move on in processes, stage by stage, failure and successes. Ending life is a coward act.
