Suicide rates may multiply in Nigeria, Not because times are hard. Times were HARD during the Biafran war. The problem now is that adults are increasingly immature, the society is increasingly frivolous and People no longer have true friendship.
Most friends see themselves as rivals, the race is measured by wealth and nothing else, Set backs are mourned as wasted life’s by those who should give love and genuine support. So a troubled man becomes the butt of jokes by those in whom he has reposed his trust.
When calamities befall men, their friends shed tears in the morning and run them down at night; Adults are now children. The Troubled man can’t even tell his wife because he is sure she won’t understand. He has seen her divulge little details to her family.
The pastor can’t be trusted because he has conceded to flashy cars and worldly ambitions. He rates men by their earthly successes and wealth. He can’t be trusted because wealth he says is the ultimate blessing from God.Everyday he celebrates only the rich
So the troubled man walks around with his troubles in his heart, smiles at all the children masquerading as adults around him. One day, he would weigh it all over again and say no.
But let your solace be in the words of God…..
True mature friends are now very scares.
