kidnapper Ariel Castro Suicide?

I've purposely been holding off on responding to the news of Ariel Castro's suicide due to the flux in people's true feelings, prejudices, toward the topic of suicide.  When a superstar commits suicide it is tragic, horrific even, yet when a clearly deranged individual commits suicide he's labeled a coward, and he has escaped justice?  What does that attitude say about the teen today whom has been bullied for the past year and hangs themselves?  Lack of compassion, and ignorance propagates the quite suffering happening all around us on a daily bases, as we unconsciously go on about our lives completely focused on ourselves.

Suicide is suicide, just like sin is sin! Romans 3:25 "For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God".  I'm I condoning the terrible things that Mr. Castro did? Of course not! All I'm saying is that we need to not focus on how he died, but on what he did while he was alive.  His intense emotional suffering drove him to suicide, just like the teenager today that ended their life to soon.  Suicide was not a justified end for the teenager and the teen was not a coward.  I've been to the edge of the abyss, looked down, and jumped in myself!  That kind of despair, self loathing, is usually not understood until you've experienced it for yourself.

We are all going to die one day, and until that day happens, focus on how you want to be remembered by those that love you.  Lets all try to be just a little bit kinder then we were the day before.  Today, smile at a complete stranger, tomorrow smile at two, the next day three, and so on!  You'll be amazed at how much better you will feel at the end of the week!  If you need help with this new habit, I've created a new habit called "happiness is a choice" at "LIFT" free downloadable app:

Emotional experiences can trigger the survival instinct, giving you that feeling of wanting to die.

Ever wonder how we can kill ourselves? Literally, commit suicide? We have a built in program that protects us from danger, tells us to seek out food, and to find a mate.  It's called our survival instinct, and it lives in the unconscious mind.

The trigger for our survival instinct is called the intensity level of an experience.When we have an experience that is not related to sex, food, or danger, and its has an intensity level of 8 to 10, on a scale of 1 to 10, it triggers our survival instinct.  Emotions are good, intensity is bad, unless it relates to sex, food or danger.

So, what can you do to reduce the intensity level of a past experience?

A new mental health treatment is available online that reduces the intensity level of a past 'Memory Trauma'.  A 'Memory Trauma' is any experience outside the scope of a usual life experience.  Examples of common 'Memory Trauma' are bad experiences in with: Relational, Financial, and Physical.
