Suicide is often associated with depression. This is one silent killer that robs the lives of many young people and mostly goes ignored.
Recently, Singer Wahu made a confession which looked like a classical narrative of how she once cocnsidered to take away her own life… This was one of her lowest point in life, Wahu revealed that she had lost all hope for living and wanted to end her life.
“When I was 19, I suffered from depression. I thought my life was meaningless. I thought I was such a failure and a massive disappointment to my parents. I wanted to do myself (and the world) a Favor and just die. I remember walking past my dad’s medicine cabinet and just thinking how easy it would be to just “end this”.
I remember thinking that I would never live to celebrate my 25th birthday, and if I did, I’d be nuts. Like literally a Mathare case. Looking back now all I can say is the devil is a liar!! Look at ALL what he didn’t want me to enjoy! A career that I love, a family I adore, and an opportunity to encourage so so many young people. Don’t believe the -ve whispers that sink you into depression. Don’t believe them at all. You have to know that your future is absolutely bright. And the bigger your struggle appears to be, the greater your future is. So give thanks even in times of hardship because success and happiness is just around the corner. I love you all, and wish you all the very best that life has to offer.’’
