Self Confidence of youth being shattered easilyIn this age of cut throat competition,the young generation has to face stiff competition and high expectations in almost every aspect of life.
Peer pressure and deadlines at workplace are a very common issue.
Some survive because of the emotional support given by their family but some lose hope give up after seeing no way out of their troubles.
If we consider the tragic death of Bollywood actress, Jiah Khan who committed suicide by hanging herself or the recent suicide attempt of the late popstar, Michael Jackson's daughter,Paris, one is compelled to think that who is to blame for this situation -the society,the people at work, the media or seeing continuous failure in one's life.
Is it that the expectations from family and the continuous race to reach the top in almost every field be it education,business,acting,modeling,singing etc destroying the individuality and aspirations of a person.The hope of leading a content and satisfied life is decreasing day by day due to this race to prove to the world that you are the best.
A normal person cannot handle all such pressures alone and needs an emotional outlet which can be in the form of supporting friends,co-workers and family ,which can help neutralize the situation and bring relief to a person under continuous stress.
We may have heard of many cases where people have tried to harm themselves ,gone into depression or trauma ,started taking drugs and ultimately attempted suicide.Seeing the loss of lives who were so young is very depressing for us and is also a major setback for the country.
My sincere hope is that everyone will try to lend a helping hand and comfort to any distressed person in such a situation because he or she may not take the extreme step just because of you.
Let us work together to save humanity and bring back hope & happiness in everyone's lives.
