A Boy Embraced Suicide… Again.

Link to first post about Justin: https://jgfairytalesblog.wordpress.com/2011/01/10/a-boy-embraced-suicide/

This is the second time in one week that a boy in my high school committed suicide. This time he was fourteen and one of my brother’s friends from seventh grade.

That’s way too young to die. Let alone kill yourself.

I just feel horrible that I didn’t know these boys, because if I did I would’ve committed my life to helping them save themselves from themselves.

Profound stuff, right there. ^

Saving themselves from themselves.

We’ve all been there before, though. At least, most of us have. And to those who haven’t, I congratulate you on living life the right way. (:

I believe that this is the most sufficient definition I could find, and I agree with it whole-heartely.

Suicide is NOT the cowards way out. If you commit suicide it doesn’t mean that you are a weak or bad person. Everybody encounters problems during their lives that may make their lives hard. But it’s not how bad these problems are that matters, it’s how the individual knows to handle these problems. Some people can’t see a way out other than suicide but that doesn’t, in any way, make them a weak or lesser person. It only shows that they haven’t been taught how to handle their problems in any better way. And that is not their fault.  

Never ignore somebody if they start to talk about ending their life. Most of the time it is NOT for attention. Most of the time it is a cry for help. They are asking for somebody to show that they care. They aren’t doing it to be called a poser or stupid or an attention-seeker or any other shit like that. They’re saying it because they actually DO want to end it…they do actually feel the need to die. And if you just ignore them, how are you going to feel when you find out that they’re dead? Think about it…just try to help the individual as much as you can.

Suicide is NOT a selfish act. You all say that they’re leaving their loved ones behind and hurting them, but that really only makes you selfish. How can you expect this person to continue living through all the pain that their life is giving them? To go through the feeling of being invisible, like they have no one to confide in? To go through feeling like everybody that once loved them has now abandoned them? And to go through feeling that everyday the walls are closing in on them and that everyday they are sinking further and further into despair? Into loneliness and heartache? How on earth can you expect someone to live with that all the time, just to keep everybody else happy? It’s not like it’s their duty to make everyone happy. So stop being selfish yourself and think of the individual for once.

Don’t think that suicidal people don’t care about you. One of the common reasons for suicide is that the individual doesn’t want to hurt their loved ones anymore. And though they know that suicide may hurt their loved ones, it stops the individual from ever hurting them again. Better once than a million more times. And deep down inside, the individual probably does know that people do care, but they just can’t believe that when they’re feeling so down and out. It’s just hard to think that people care about you when you feel that they never seem to show it and they never seem to be there when you need them most.

If you are someone who believes in fate and God and you believe that everybody has a particular time to die made for them, then you should also believe, as sad and horrible as it may be, that suicide is meant to happen. Perhaps the individual is actually MEANT to die at this time and it just so happens that suicide is the way they die?
I really don’t know…I’m just putting down my opinion. I hope it helps at least one person out there.

This definition wasn’t intended to encourage people to commit suicide, I am merely hoping that it will help everybody else to understand a bit more about suicide and why people commit it.

Commiting suicide does not make you weak. Or selfish.

THERE IS ALWAYS A REASON TO LIVE! <3

Don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. Hateful people only live to ruin the lives of others because they are jealous of what you have. Of what you’re oblivious to.

People who love and care for you. Who would do anything for you. Who wouldn’t know how to live the rest of their lives without you there holding their hand.

Even people you barely know.

My school has suffered two losses and not only has it made us stronger as a whole, but it’s opened eyes to many students and faculty who had closed their eyes and ears to it before.

And I’ll be honest with you here for a moment… There was a time when I was like this. But I thought of the consequences and realized that there were many people who loved and cared for me.

I just didn’t love myself. And that’s when I decided to turn my life around, get help, and re-learn how to love myself.

And now I do. I love myself.

I just wish those two boys, Justin and Kameron knew that people loved them. But also that they needed to love themselves.

Rest in peace, Justin.

Rest in peace, Kameron.
