OK its a bit of a dramatic sounding title but I couldn’t think of a better way to describe it.
After having a conversation with someone at work I finally realised one giant problem with the way people handle being told that someone they know is depressed/suicidal or suffers from life crippling anxiety.
Instead of asking you why, how its triggered or if there was something that you can pinpoint that started it (questions you might not have answers too but at least it shows they are aware its personal to you and want to understand it) they tend to, with the best intentions at heart, tell you why you shouldn’t be, that things will get better and that you don’t want to kill yourself….

Do I believe in reincarnation?
I’d like to believe it, I’d really love to believe that there is something out there after we die. For my personality I guess its weird for me not to believe in it with some of the stuff I do believe in.
The thing is whenever it has been described to me it seems extremely unfair, maybe I believe in a form of reincarnation as I feel like we’re like a DVD. When we stop playing it just happens again and that is why we get Deja vu but to think that based on how well behaved you are on someones rules without the intricate complex human factor put in there you might be reincarnated seems like Santa Claus. Its like a bribe to lead a better life to get a present at the end of it.
I really do feel that people who do believe in it tend to be happier though. I guess it would make facing life in all its hardships so much easier. If you strive to do good you’ll get to be reincarnated, sometimes I guess humans need that kind of promise. It gets pretty depressing thinking that you might just end.
Of all of us here on BelieveinGeek.com though I’m pretty sure its Anna that would believe in reincarnation.
