What 30 countries with the highest suicide rates in the world have in common? Is it the poor government? Rough laws? Poverty? The high rate of unemployment? What is it that makes their residents so desperate to decide to take away their own lives?
All of us feel weak from time to time but we all have a reason to live. I am not some religious person that believes that God has a plan for each one of us, but I am the kind of person who believes that we all have some purpose in the world. Just because not all of us are some great influencers that work on the cure for cancer or something else that important, we are all a part of the world. We all have to live until we naturally die because none of us was born for no reason.
The world was, is, and will always be a miserable place for some people. But let me tell you a secret that you already know: the happiness is in little things. The things that we don’t usually notice because we are overwhelmed with some problems or things that seem more important at that time. But seeing a smile from some person we love is what we need. Whether it is a parent, a sibling, a friend, a lover, a child, a co-worker, a boss, or even a coffee person from the coffee shop nearby. Even smiles coming from strangers.
I admire people that are just happy. I admire people whose glass is always half-full. I admire people that don’t leave anything to the cause but act. I admire people that don’t expect anything and, therefore, they don’t get disappointed. They know what means to be alive. They know what means to know who you are. They know how to enjoy every moment of their lives.
But there are some miserable people that believe that death is the only thing that can save them. According to the research done by Insider Monkey, there are 10 biggest causes of suicide in America: poverty, bullying, mental illness, terminal sickness, domestic violence/rape, traumatic experience, low self-esteem, the death of a loved one, guilt, and drug addiction. But we are not talking about America only now. We are talking worldwide. There is a problem that needs to be resolved. We need to find a way how to keep those people in life. How to make them realize how important they are. But we can’t help them unless we find out what the biggest cause of their willingness to take away their lives is. So let’s take a look at 30 countries with the highest suicide rates in the world and find a way together to save their lives.
