First off, this is a touchy topic. I apologize if anyone is offended.
After having a discussion last night on suicide and why people would really consider it, I wanted to post this. This is from 4chan of all places – if you don’t know what 4chan is, it’s basically the bottom of the internet. But every now and then a gem is posted like this:
“I never got why people would kill themselves.
So if you want to die you obviously don’t give a shit. Like, about anyone. ‘Cause if there is anyone who loves you, you don’t give a FUCK about them, or hurting them, and if there’s not, there’s no one to give a shit about.
So instead of killing yourself, why don’t you just get the fuck out? Leave the basement, leave your house, leave the motherfucking country. Go on an adventure. Spend your time doing something awesome, like tracking down some terrorists. Go be James Bond. Go fuck up a shark with a harpoon. Danger? Fuck that, you were going up against 100% death rate before, you’re being safe now. Fuck EVERYTHING, man, the world is your oyster.
Sometimes I wish I was suicidal. I’d pull the barrel out of my mouth and point it in the air, start a revolution, LIVE. Move to Barcelona, hit the bars, band some chicks. STDs, who fucking gives a shit?
And then when I’m done, maybe I wouldn’t want to kill myself, ’cause I’ve seen how beautiful this world is.
TL;DR op is a faggot”
That last sentence is what a normal post on 4chan is like. But the rest of the quote is meaningful in my mind. If you feel like there is no point to living, that its worthless because you’ll never do anything, why care about continuing what you’re doing at the moment? Go out and wrestle a bear or something, it’s still safer than suicide.
So go out and do something different. If you think everything is worthless, then go do the one thing you think you couldn’t – it may be sky diving, mountain climbing, or learning how to handle a motorcycle at 200mph. But LIVE.
Here is a screenshot of the original post, which obviously has a few capitalization errors that the OCD in me couldn’t ignore.
