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/failed/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.

This is the only deviation that made me cry. Seriously, I don't cry that much and I didn't have suicidal tendencies but this... makes my heart even heavier for those who had taken their own life, and at the same realize that there should've been a way for them to be saved. This deserves to be shown more.
