Your Suicide by linnyxito Your Suicide by linnyxito
In memory of my friend. A true story... It's been a couple of years since it happened, so it feels good to have finished this... A very personal project :)
(Hope I'm not offending anyone - I don't mean to. And you guys don't need to comment unless you really want to. I know this sort of deviation may make people uncomfortable...)



EDIT 3: This is harsh of me to say, but it's important, so I'll say it: If you are thinking about committing suicide, stop it. There is nothing "romantic" about it. A very select few of you may scoff at me for saying this and think, "Why'd you make this into art, then?" but I'll have you know I made this hoping to reach someone and maybe make them change their minds to the better - not the other way around. Suicide is only hurtful, to absolutely everyone involved. If you think it will fix things, you are wrong, and if you're thinking, "What do you know?!", I'd like to be so bold as to ask you to rethink things from scratch. And if you still intend to go through with something like a suicide attempt, then at the very least go do everything you have ever dreamed of first; It may seriously change your mind into wanting to live. I hope it does. This may sound dark, but suicide won't run away; You could still do it later after you have tried to enjoy life to its fullest.

Don't let the hard times get to you. Even if the bad stuff seems huge and never-ending and the good things are few and suuuper-small, try to only look at the good things. A life changing surprise may be just around the corner. Just gather up your strength and wait for it - or work for it, if you want it to come faster than that. Now that I've gone out of my way and said all that, let me finish up by saying one more corny thing: Go live!

And if you happen to be one of the people who've tried suicide, but failed - attempted suicide but then decided to give life a new try: Seriously friggen' amazing job! You're amazing and I look up to you.



EDIT 1: I can't believe I got a daily deviation... I really have no words... And all those comments, whoa - you people are so amazing - I really am super-grateful. This means so much more than you know.
EDIT 2: Minor edits, plus I added a rather important line ("Told us to remember you").

As always, send me a note if you want to talk. I'm not dangerous, although I may be slow to reply sometimes. (:
And some of you asked if you could share this... Of course you can.

Thank you for this. 

I was too late too. Or no, I knew it was going to happen, I was just sunk so deep myself I didn't know how to pull her up. 
We said we'd go together but I never had the time, I was drowning in life and tried to drag her along the best I could. Keep us both in the surface.

It's funny, 16 years and the guilt is still eating me alive.

I'm so sorry to hear that... I hope you know that ultimately, since it was her decision, she would never have wanted you to feel guilty for it. I think she would want you to let her go and be at peace. And for what it's worth, I think she's glad you made it through and are alive even now, so many years after.

Again, although it's been a long time: I'm sorry for your loss.

Stay strong!

You really shouldn't apologize for posting this. It's totally acceptable and if anyone were to bash you for that, then they're a horrible person and I really hope you don't let them get to you. Second, this is an amazing piece. It moved me to tears. It's a very powerful piece.

I haven't shed a single tear since I was 15. But this really brought out so many emotions in me. This hit way too close to home.
