You are not alone…

By Ovundah Nyeche.

Days ago I got a knock on the door of my house, I looked through the peephole, opened the and saw a neighbor panting for air…

“Oga na wetyn na” I inquired… This one you want to break my door?

“Ovd, there is an emergency oh” the breathless neighbor said…

“Which emergency” I asked in response…

Someone had slumped near my neighborhood and he had come to my house so I would help go resuscitate him… Those with unlimited access to ambulances 🚑 may never understand this.

Chai…

I thought they had forgotten I was a doctor…

I went there, to see what was going on… A a crowd had gathered around the man, with everyone suggesting all manner of things…

From the absurd to the ridiculous…

The man who needed my attention was now seating down on the floor, and on careful examination he had an empty Ventolin inhaler by his side…

And a little conversation showed the man had not eaten the day before…

A bucket of water had already been recruited by one of the rescuers and someone in the crowd was about to empty the whole content of the bucket on the bewildered man…

“Shebi” we were told when you pour water on someone who fainted the person would immediately be revived.

I told the overzealous bucket holder to calm down…This was not a comedy skit…

Long story short…

Water was not poured on the innocent man…

Pouring water on someone that fainted out of “hunger”will not address the hunger issue or even the fainting.

******

Taking your life will not address the problem.

Taking your life will not erase the problem.

Taking your life will cause more problems than answers.

Taking your life cannot be rationalized by any reason at all.

It is not even your life in the first place.

Why snuff out what you cannot create?

******

Truly speaking…

Time changes perspective…

Time changes narratives…

Every situation is subject to change…

Never make a permanent decision out of a temporary problem!

*******

Speak out if you have any issue or issues…

Open up…

You will discover first hand, that there is nothing happening to you now, that cannot be surmounted, or has not been passed though by someone else.

Seek help…

Talk to someone…

Seek help from professionals..

You are not alone…

When there is life, there is hope…

When there is Jesus, there is hope for today and tomorrow…

Because Jesus lives, you can face tomorrow…

Because He lives all fear is gone…

He holds your future and life is worth living, because Jesus lives…

You are not alone…

Commit everything in His hands…

It won’t end the way you think…

Keep hope alive…

Don’t do it… Live again…
