News services of late have reported an increase in suicide, we are becoming more aware of mental health. On CNN it was suggested a reason for this increase was communication, “suffer in silence” is a thing of the past. The western world has always been individualistic. Identity was established in Human Intelligence by ancient Greek philosophy and so privacy was created. As a consequence we regard some ideas as private, “suffer in silence”. To share this suffering might require a change in Human Intelligence, a move past identity. We have so many ways to communicate these days, you can be very expressive and not remain silent.

If considering suicide try communication, discuss your problems with anyone for a different opinion. Someone you trust or a complete stranger. Life itself is pretty amazing, even hardship can reveal things about existence. Perhaps hardship reveals more.
