Okay, fast question.
What do you think about suicide?
Like, is it bad, or necessary, or just another facet of daily life?
I mean, you get that word thrown all around the place in any occasion, whether it's a parenting seminar or just some conversation in a cafe. Trust me; in any event, there will always be a little snippet of conversation about suicide.
And the weird thing is, they always keep the distance when the word pops up. Like it's some kind of deadly disease that's ready to erupt once your ears hear the word. And then you kill yourself in some conventional fashion, and it'll be all over the news. Then, the news is brought up, and the cycle repeats.
It's stupid really, with all these people talking about self-harm like it's some "newfangled monstrosity these young-uns been up to".
I mean, we've been harming ourselves ever since, even in the dawn of time. Just by waking up.
Suicide…it's just another step forward.
Honestly, I'm not feeling too good. Everything's just fuzzy, like bad radio signals.
I'm just cuddling with Little Mongrel, trying to put back some sense into me, but nothing works.
I'm running on fumes, to be honest.
I can't take this emptiness anymore.
I just want a restart. Another chance to put things to rights.
That's probably why the idea of suicide feels so appealing for me. It's like a big restart button out on the other side.
I just need to be brave enough to reach it.
