When me and my friends used to talk about suicide as kids we would say, in mocking tones, it was weakness, stupidity or attention seeking. Ironically in our innocence was our stupidity.
I still see adults act like they are too strong to do something so weak when the subject comes up. These so called experienced humans must think so shallow.
I don’t want to quote Einstein here but hopefully you can see where I’m going with this. Yes you may be strong, extremely strong but you can only be strong in comparison to something. There is no such thing as a unstoppable force or a immovable object.
Consider your house or the wall of your house. The wall truly is strong. You could punch it all day and not make a dent. The wall is holding up the roof and the roof is keeping you nice and safe when its cold. But… that wall is nothing compared to the bulldozer. The bulldozer in turn is nothing to the crusher at the recycling center and the car crusher…. is nothing to a kid with a screwdriver.
Something in life could happen at any time to any of us. Life has shown me that things I thought wouldn’t hurt me at all would sting the most when they did happen.
People say there is help out there if you look for it. Yet when I watch the new I will soon be greeted by the name of another person who though that help wasn’t enough. Would you bet your life on it? hummm… What a world this is where people feel trying to talk about it isn’t worth their life.
I lost a little hope in humanity thinking about this today until I had to go to the hospital for a blood test. My faith was restored by the image angels in white cotes. I really did want to imagine halos over their heads. Doctors and nurses at war everyday for people they don’t even know. There truly are easier jobs for the money.
Whats cool about the whole relativity thing is your problem is only bad in comparison to another problem. Not having a place to live is your biggest problem until you don’t have anything to eat. I don’t whether thinking about that makes me feel better or worse?
Edit: Reading this back I wasn’t sure of my own point. Don’t mock the suicidal as weak and realize their death is mocking our humanity.
Please don’t be one of those people that will read this, agree and then go and step on someone just to gain something. I cant stand when I people I know are only in life for themselves share post on Facebook about saving the “Insert popular charity”. The sociopaths try to hide and although we didn’t study the same subjects at school we can still understand you.
