BLOG: Suicide Blah Blah

Suicide, what a joke?

If you’re reading this and asking yourself “Is he going to bash people who commit suicide?” then I suggest you click the X in the upper right corner of the screen, because that is exactly what I am going to do.

Suicide is out of control!

If someone believes that they’re better off dead, then who are we to convince them otherwise. However, if you think for one second that I would show any remorse for someone who is coward enough to run from a world simply because it’s hard, then you might be as misguided as them.

Of course these are my own personal views, the reason I say this is because of backlash.

The United States is all about its ongoing Anti-bullying campaign right now. That’s nice. Considering the citizens of this country have been bullied for the last ten years with threats of terror and a hostile depression.

What ever happened to never say die?

Instead families and friends are forced to deal with the aftermath of some dumbass that chooses to take their own life.

Wait, I can almost hear some objections.

Before you form your argument against my point of view, realize this, none of the individuals who take their own life care enough about the repercussions of their actions.

So why should I?

So if your argument is that I don’t know the individuals circumstances, I will immediately agree with you.

BUT, someone does!

Suicide isn’t a gay thing, or a straight thing, a nerd/geek thing, an emo thing, or a last ditch effort.

It is an assumption that leads someone to be an ass.

I’ve known a lot of people who have died.

Some, who’ve been murdered, died in car accidents, others who’ve undergone serious health issues, and then those fools who have committed suicide.

All of which are sad, and many could have been avoided.

Each of the suicide cases were not cries for help, they were pathetic attempts to stick another individual with a lifelong guilt that they would never be able to live down.

I hate the over use of the words Epic Fail, but boy does it fit, because it did just that Fail at it’s attempt.

Let’s not forget that some of these individuals had children.

The unbearable torture that led these individuals to commit such a heinous act tugs at heart strings for those willing to care about someone’s woe is me tale.

Well Boo Hoo for them!

I am not referring to Japanese war pilots who flew Kamikaze style into ships or terrorists who run with bombs into buses.

As much as I hate to admit it those individuals are fighting for a cause.

In some misguided way their deaths are too further a cause or to further a dream, not to put an end to their own life because life is too hard.

Everyone has it hard.

Everyone has problems.

If you’re problems are redundant, it’s because your patterns are redundant.

If your life isn’t turning out the way you expected then guess what?

You’re living life.

Life isn’t easy, and it was never meant to be.

If you’re seriously thinking of taking your own life, and I mean seriously, and not looking for the sickest attempt at attention, then I suggest talking to someone.

Because taking your own life is Bullshit!

I have to address the individuals who kill themselves because of a bad breakup, or that someone doesn’t love them the way they do.

That is the bottom of the suicide barrel!

No props, that’s right, no props.

I might have to explain to these individuals that Romeo & Juliet is fiction.

While heart break is one of the most grueling and torturous things to deal with, it is still the dumbest reason to commit suicide.

Look at it for a moment. Someone doesn’t want you, so you kill yourself. That only makes the person who didn’t want you even more appealing.

I am addressing you Mr. /Mrs. Deadperson, hell I’m even addressing the individuals who are convinced that this is somehow a good idea.

You’re plan is doomed to fail. It is doomed mostly because of people like me who will mock this plan.

Before I end this let’s look at two definitions.

Bully – a person who uses strength or power to harm or intimidate those who are weaker.

Coward – is a person who lacks the courage to do or endure dangerous or unpleasant things.

If you don’t have anyone that you feel comfortable speaking too, then find someone, anyone.

If that doesn’t work then contact me because your life is only as bad as you want it to be.
