Close every door

I Heard about 4 suicides this week.  Yes u read it right! Not 1, not 2,but 4!
3 of them were women- Married women,  with husbands and kids.
Was life so worthless for these people? Was it so sad?
Did their troubles outweigh their hopes? Did they feel unappreciated,  unloved, unworthy of life?
Did they feel that happiness was evading them?
What made them take such a drastic decision?
What was going on in their head?
Why take a decision which was so selfish?
To leave sad and troubled memories to the loved ones who are left behind?
To leave them feeling helpless and in such grief.
To leave them wondering why?
Life is so fragile.
There is a beautiful song in Joseph and his Technicolor Dreamcoat (by Andrew Lloyd Webber) which talks of hope in troubled times. You may be jailed or tortured or forgotten but you must realise that there is a reason for your being here.  There is a reason that you breathe- That you have life. Just learn to believe in yourself and that God has a plan for you, for your life and you will find your peace of mind. Just have confidence and never lose hope because whenever God closes a  door, somewhere he opens a window.

"Close every door to me,
Hide all the world from me
Bar all the windows
And shut out the light
Do what you want with me,
Hate me and laugh at me
Darken my daytime
And torture my night
If my life were important I
Would ask will I live or die
But I know the answers lie
Far from this world
Close every door to me,
Keep those I love from me
Children of Israel
Are never alone
For I know I shall find
My own peace of mind
For I have been promised
A land of my own"
