We hardly get to see the cheerful working Folk around. Depression and unhappiness among professionals is on the rise. It is frustration, increased workload, job stress, and lack of appreciation and positive admiration that make one’s working experience rough and dissatisfying. As a result, suicidal tendency among professionals is growing fast.
Here, we list down the professions that carry the highest rate of risk:
Why do the doctors who save others’ lives, kill themselves? Let’s explore the dark side of the profession. From outside, their life appears awarding and prosperous, and certainly it is!

You must be wondering, why I’ve added comedians who make you laughter, in the list of ‘life – ending’ professionals. What adds so much depression to their job that they end up their lives? It is the pressure to be more entertaining and funny that cost them heavily. They suffer from ‘sad clown syndrome’.

Mathematicians and scientists are undisputedly genius minds, residing on this planet. But they live a tortured and painful life. They go insane in an endeavor to prove theories and make discoveries. Their professional life is highly stressed and undergoes intolerable pressure. This inescapably leads them to commit suicide.
Celebrities suffer from the addiction of how others speak out about them. Their entire thought process is driven by the world’s opinion. If people desire them, they will be on the top of the world, and if their popularity comes down, their life is shattered completely. Its consequence is that they indulge themselves in depression and fall for drugs. Their lives are filled with agony and mental trauma. Actually, actors never give themselves a private time to face the reality. Consequently, they are pushed to self-murder.
“Sometimes even to live is an act of courage.”
Lucius Annaeus Seneca
