There comes a point in a person’s life when they are unable to escape from problems and nor do they have the strengths to fight them. In situations like these people tend to take things upon themselves and make a decision whether they want to live or die. And when it becomes intolerable they commit suicide without being aware of what grieve they will leave their loved ones in. Suicide has become a very serious and popular problem, according to the sociologist Emile Durkheim suicide rates differ from society to society, and is most common among men because they tend to have higher expectations of their roles in the society whereas women are able to build identity through their relationships with others. Suicide within the Aboriginal groups are most commonly a result of past and ongoing misunderstandings.
