Okay so here’s where I’m at with it right now-
I’m acknowledging that I need to try to not be sad. He was here to make people happy and he did and he’ll continue to. I don’t even want to imagine what his family is going through. So, if anything, my sorrow goes out to them.
Having been so suicidal for so much of my life, I know how fucking horrifyingly agonizing it can be to be alive when you wish you weren’t. In that sense, I guess I’m at least comforted by the fact that he got what he wanted and needed. It sucks for us, but his desperation to die outweighed his will to live and now he no longer has to deal with the absolute never ending hell that is depression.
On top of what everyone is saying about how this goes to show that depression can hit even the seemingly happiest people, I think this should be an opportunity to remind people that you can get help. We lost someone today that nobody ever wanted to lose. He didn’t end up getting the treatment that he needed, but you still can. I have a lot of disdain for for the human race in general, yeah, but that doesn’t change the fact that I don’t think anyone should have to feel the way that lovely fucking man felt when he did what he did.
If you ever feel like it’s not worth it anymore or are seriously considering giving up, please talk to someone. See a doctor. This can happen to anyone. And you can go to therapy for it and you can take a medication for it and it doesn’t make you less of a person.
Don’t let this keep happening.
It’s never too late to recover. Start now.
