- A Nigerian man wrote a post on Twitter that exhibited strong suicidal intents
- The young graduate said he is entertaining these thoughts because he is unemployed
- Many people on social media are encouraging him and telling him to find reasons to live
The line between depression and suicide is very thin. This is why the lots of people who commit suicide were once depressed and tired of living life for whatever reason. Before eventually giving up on life, many of these ones expressed their depressive feeling in several ways. One of which is writing.
A young unemployed graduate is giving many people on Twitter the chills with the suicidal tweets he posted. The Nigerian man who is simply identified as Efe wrote a distressing post that has called the attention of many to him.
The post highlighted life had been hard and how going to school didn’t make anything better. Efe who is based in Abuja said that he was finding comfort in suicide and was already seeing it as an option:
"No job, no money, life has been hard..Go to school they said..life will get better they said..lol and I actually listened! At this point the thought of suicide is a great consolation and I just allowed it in..A lot of you cared for me, just not enough! Goodbye."
Efe’s mind seemed all made up with what he said in the tweet that followed:
"I don't need you to cry or reach out..this is it!!"
Regardless of his made up mind, Nigerians are urging the young man to reconsider his decision and make another attempt at living in spite of the challenges that faced him.
The advice, shared personal experiences and pleas have been rolling out in their numbers. It is apparent that no one Nigerian wants to see another person give way and give up on life due to the unemployment crisis that is prevalent in the nation.
