Rapper Reason a.k.a Sizwe Alakine writes a letter to friends who are struggling with suicidal thoughts.
Over the past months, we’ve had records of South Africans (including famous people) taking their own lives – like Riky Rick, and it’s left lots of people depressed and heartbroken.
Taking to Twitter, Sizwe penned down a note to those around him who are considering suicide.
“To my loved ones around me with suicidal thoughts & fantasies; I don’t agree. but I respect you. And your wish to leave this living experience for whatever reason you see fit. All I ask for is a conversation. If not to change your mind, then to prepare me to live without you,” he wrote.
The rapper urged these people to talk about their struggles as it helps; he also revealed that he has problems he’s battling with but he doesn’t settle with taking his own life.
“I understand that there’s a lot of situations many of us can’t live through. I’ve seen them myself. So many times; and yet, I always chose to break through because I choose to live through them. It doesn’t make me better than you. But it makes me ready to help you.”
He reminds them that their lives are precious and that committing suicide is triggering for those the deceased leaves behind.
Talk to us first. That’s all I ask. Just… talk to your LOVED ones first.
Your Loved One.
