Many news services of late have reported an increase in suicide. We are becoming more aware of mental health and so I consider. On CNN it was suggested a reason for this increase was difficulty communicating, “suffer in silence” they said.
Indeed the western world has always been individualistic. Identity was established in Human Intelligence by ancient Greek philosophy and so privacy was created, secrecy. As a consequence we regard some ideas as private, “suffer in silence”. To share this suffering might require a change in Human Intelligence, a move past personal identity or the individual. We have so many ways to communicate these days, you can be very expressive and not remain silent.
If you’re considering suicide communicate, discuss your problems with anyone for a different perspective. Someone you trust or a complete stranger. Life itself is pretty amazing, even hardship can reveal things about existence. Life is profound and best explored despite hardship. Perhaps hardship reveals even more about existence, discuss.
