On Depression and Suicide!

On depression and suicide:

Every Dick and Harry hit the internet, sermonizing folks and pontificating on the steps to take out of depression so as to escape suicide whenever there a fresh case of suicide. It is when there is suicide that you hear their “gospel”: ‘Depression is real. Speak to someone…’ A very useless and monotonous cliché it is to me. I remember in 2016 when the Punch News paper published its sensational useless news of ” Uniosun Sex Scandal” on me, some of the same ‘Isi-Ewu’ lamenting depression and suicide today were the first set of people to hit the internet with useless and unprintable comments even on the Ojoniyi and the story they did not know… Some even wished me destruction and death… But, since I have always known, by the special grace of God that is upon me, that it is completely useless to take emotional decision at the expense of reflective rational decisions, I decided that I had nothing, I mean ‘no thing’, to do with depression or suicide. The dead don’t represent the truth, not to talk of fighting for truth and justice. I made up my mind to fight for the TRUTH. Of course, a lot of friends who thought I was finished, distanced themselves from me. A lot of fake people walked away from my life. Some would not even pick my calls again thinking I was sinking…
But, my mind was made up on fighting back. So, I started fighting back: in poems, essays, short stories, plays, memoirs and speaking… Finally, I hit a court of law… Now, I am happy that the Uniosun Cabals lost their PO, preliminary objection, to my case against them. I am happy that the cabals would now defend their actions before a competent court of Law… If you wish to see Professors crying and weeping under cross examination in a witness box, contact me for the date of the court sittings…

I only hope folks will find little courage in my story not to allow depression or suicide to rob them of a glorious adventurous life of impact God has for them if they would confront their crisis and problems, forcing such to yield and give way to testimonies and success…

As for fake folks who love to pontificate on depression and suicide when they are part of the corrupt system and the cause of depression in others, please, keep your stinking mouth shut!!!

Finally for now, I wrote my PhD thesis on crisis of consciousness, dealing with crisis and conflicts at intra and inter personal levels, situating my arguments within phenomenology, psychoanalysis, existentialism and deconstruction/reconstruction of human intentionalities… If you want us to discuss the reasons you are predisposed by circumstances to certain actions like depression, suicide etc, feel free to talk to me…

Note: Don’t completely believe the content of a suicide note, for it may be to sell a dummy to the audience to preserve the pseudo integrity of the victim. The truth is that many people also commit suicide to escape the consequences of their indiscretions. They commit suicide when their secret lives threaten to deconstruct the false public image they have built over the years.
In essence, we owe ourselves a duty of truthful living. A sincerity of intent and purpose. We must know and accept that we have a responsibility to be sincere, truthful and open. There must not always be any problem in reconciling our secret life to our public life. That is integrity and we must embrace it. To reject it is also to predispose ourselves to crisis of wanting to escape reality when our circumstances force or threaten to unveil our secret lives… Please, let us also accept to live responsibly…
