Death by Overwork

By the great Kally.


Today, I came across a very sad and disturbing news. A young woman of 24 years old took her life due to work related stress. Some may think it is silly or out of this world to lose your life to something tangible like your job but I think it is one of the saddest things  to happen to anyone, to any parent. But it is very real and not restricted to just Japan. This is not the first time I came across such news as well.

Whether it is the pressure of the job, the management or even the culture (sometimes it’s the combo of all three), it is not worth to commit suicide. Words and advice are easy when it comes out of the mouth of those uninvolved but to those immersed in the depressing situation, it is an endless dark tunnel with no guiding light.
