Why People Do Things They Do Essay

Decent Essays
Why do people do the things they do? Is it all by rational decision-making or spontaneous actions? If you were given an option to end your life most people would say no, but that’s because the ones that say yes are not here right now. In the great depression a lot of men committed suicide due to the fact they lost their jobs and couldn’t provide for their families. Being over whelmed and stressed can lead anyone to do whatever it takes to make it right. Your genetics can also be a factor in your decision-making.

The most constant question everyone asked me when I was going to the hospital was why did you do it? The same question everyone kept asking me was the same question I kept asking myself. There a lot of reasons for why I did what I did but I think the main reason was to stop the pain I was feeling day to day. As a kid you don’t really understand the things that go on around you and just do what you are told. I was very lonely ever since I was a kid I never had a friend and no real guidance in life. My dad work 24/7 to provide a good life but what’s the point having everything without anyone to share it with. So I never really understood anything when growing up why I felt so lonely and scared all the time. I was always quiet and minded my own business. I got bullied all the way up till junior year to the point where I was beaten so bad I couldn’t barley breath and bruised till I was bleeding on my birthday. There’s a whole list of things I could name that could contribute to my sadness but the one main reason to why I tried to end my life was my lack of hope. The hope that things would change and that life would get better. Seeing all the terrible things that happen to people and all around the world I have no hope the future. I didn’t want to go day to day thinking .about that with till the day I die I rather just end it all

    This crushed me, I felt alone and scared, and wished with all my heart that it was all a dream. Months later, I lost my Aunt Pam and my Uncle Omar in the same week, having so many people pass in such little time brought all of those feelings of pain, and heartache back and so did the depression. I struggled to keep it together, but when things got bad my parents did what they thought was right for me more medication, and more therapy. All this death made me really learn to open up to people. I used to never spoke to my therapist, or anyone for that matter and keep everything bottled up.…
