In the last couple of weeks, two well-known celebrities took their own lives after feeling it was the only way to relieve their pain.
Kate Spade, a beloved fashion designer out of New York known for her cheerful and fun designs, felt that there was no other way than to end her life.
Anthony Bourdain a fun television host that traveled the world tasting food and experiencing different cultures was left feeling the same hopeless pain.
These two famous individuals were known for their outward lives of fun and happiness yet their inward lives were full of pain and anguish.
These tragedies have become a way to common phenomenon.
Many might ask themselves how could such a fun person with a job that everyone wished they had feel so hopeless?
In society today there has become a strong emphasis on pleasing oneself and amassing as big of a fortune as possible. Society continues to reject fundamental Christian values and any moral foundation.
These cherished individuals lacked the most important structure for one’s life— a relationship with Almighty God and a belief that they are never alone.
With technology readily available and the increase in cyber bullying via social media, it is more and more important to have a strong foundation of faith.
If you believe that amassing a fortune, earning a special degree, or driving a specific car will bring you complete happiness, examine the tragedies that are taking place every day with people that supposedly have it all.
