Stress isn’t fundamentally harmful. The stress hormones released by your body are only your body’s defense mechanism to make to respond quicker in times of emergency. It only makes you rise to the challenge to help you cope with a difficult situation.
The only problem is too much stress can be dangerous. This extreme stress also called chronic stress gives rise to suicidal thoughts in a person. That is exactly why chronic stress can be catastrophic.
Here’s remembering the brightest of the entertainment industry who succumbed to suicide as they weren’t able to find a solution beyond it to end the stress they were under.

He’s a legend that still lives in the hearts of many, but even the king had complications in his life and his death is still a mystery. It’s believed that the king died due to a heart attack. However, in other records, it is said that secret autopsy papers had been hidden by Elvis’s stepmother, Dee Presley, who made a promise to Vernon Presley to take the secret of Elvis overdosing, to their graves.
Best known as the Frontman of Linkin Park committed suicide by hanging himself from his LA County home. He’s said to be battling depression as a result of being sexually assaulted as a kid.

There comes a time when everything gets too much to handle and the chronic stress that led to depression takes over and the person just wants to end the pain, leading to killing themselves. And that is precisely the time when one should be willing to use all the will power they have to let go of all the negativity that surrounds them.
One should tell themselves as to how ever hard life gets it’s their duty to live it boldly. Think positive, interact with closed ones, do yoga or try meditation. The more you try to not let stress affect you, the more you take a step towards a better tomorrow.
Meditation to great lengths fueled with positive energy will help a long way.
