Committing suicide is one of the fatal symptom of depression, just as a pulmonary embolism is a fatal symptom of cancer. Daniel Murrell defines a pulmonary embolism as a damage part of the lung due to restricted blood flow, decrease oxygen levels in the blood, and affect other organs as well. This one condition can be the final cause of death with some cancers. However, when someone died from cancer, they died from cancer, that was it. To illustrate, a well-known American actor, Robin William, written in myriad of articles he died owing the fact that he committed suicide by hanging himself. On the other hand, one article told us something tragic that nobody seems to be talking or having a concern about, that Robin Williams didn’t die from suicide, depression and anxiety are the engender of his death.

American Psychiatric Association (APA) defines depression as a major mental illness that need to be treated. Additionally, depression can affect negatively to the way you think, the way you feel and how you act. There are myriad of factors that play a role in this illness; genetic, personalities, and also environmental factors. For instance, when you spread egregious or fake news about other. Do you think it wouldn’t affect their feelings? Depression may commence from your words. In this case we don’t talk ‘you’ as individuals, but also institutions, organizations, group of people, and so on. To heal someone from depression isn’t as easy as writing an article, yet it is treatable. However, many people have died because of depression – that may comes from our words. You may be forgiven by them, but our words still remain in their memory. Just like a saying that says”The tongues has no bones, but it is strong enough to break a heart.” Your words can also put an end to someone’s life. So becareful. 

Suffering from depression isn’t an easy way to fight from. It is nearly unnoticeable and undetected illness that may occur to everyone that we thought were fine. The common type of depression is called Major Depression Disorder that may occur for more than two weeks, another type that similar to major depression disorder is called Dysthimia that happen to someone for more than 2 years. Someone who suffers from adjustment disorder with depressed mood need to be supported by others. Another type of depression is Bipolar Disorder that considered as ‘mood disorder’.

Just as there are plenty of fish in the sea, there are plenty symptoms of depression. We have to be more careful about what is happening in our surroundings and ourselves. Often feeling guilty, having poor communication, not able to express your feeling, alcohol and drug abuse, having an extreme sensitivity to rejection or failure, and myriad of them. All of these above are the symptoms of depression.

When someone commit suicide as a result of depression – then they die from an illness that kills millions people each year. Depression isn’t a lifestyle, it’s an illness that have to be treated well. You can’t blame someone for having a depression, it takes a huge effort for someone to recover. A treatment such as medication, self-healing and other may help them to heal, but one important thing that we can do to help other life is to be very careful for what we are going to say. If your mind can ruin your life, so does your words may destroy others. Be wise, and be responsible. (Ignasia Irene, Universitas Prasetiya Mulya – International Business Law 2019)
