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 thing, 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 as 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.

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. 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!



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. (:
And some of you asked if you could share this... Of course you can.

if i could cry i would, this really hits home. i have had suicidal thoughts and this reminds me of another reason to not attempt it, the people you will leave behind. i barely handled my best friend dying in an accident, i'm not sure how i'd handle any of my friends killing themselves. it makes me rethink it. you're right, it's not romantic, it should never be romanticized, but this isn't romantic, it's just...honest. it doesn't glorify it, shows the beauty of friendship and the hardship that comes with suicide without being too depressing.

Thank you for your kind words - they mean a lot to me. And I'm very relieved to hear that someone agrees that suicide is not something that should be romanticized... It creates a lot more suffering than it actually stops.

I wish i could say you're welcome without sounding terrible but you're welcome. It's hard for people who haven't experianced something themselves to understand things but that's no excuse to make things harder for people or to try to make light of something that is dark. Excuse the terrible wording in that last sentence but people need to stop making bad things seem better, cuz it's not and all it does is make it seem like something to be taken lightly. Same goes for the opposite, people need to stop trying to make good things seem bad just because they don't understand or agree with it.

Sorry i got a bit ranty but this is a very sensitive subject as i'm still trying to get over suicidal thoughts and depression while dealing with ignorance from people for being genderfluid and pan-asexual. I'm trying to feel better about myself but people putting me down isn't helping, it's hurtful. And it seems that suicide and murder are some of the only things that make people realize what they did was wrong, and that's terrifying.

Life does not get better, it only rots as we slowly decay.
