I love your blog so much and wanted to show my appreciation right now. But I do have a question as well. This may seem troubling to you, but I was wondering what your stance on suicide is. As in, if it's acceptable or not. Thank you.
I think it’s acceptable if you’re on the verge of death anyway, like if it’s the end of the world, or 9/11, or you have cancer and you are in too much pain and you have no real chance of survival. Also I understand if you got raped or were somehow brutally mutilated and were no longer capable of being comfortable in your own skin. (That doesn’t include just being self conscious about your nose or your weight).
However, suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. If you or any of my followers are contemplating suicide, don’t do it. I would never bash someone who killed themselves because they felt trapped, depressed, or whatever it may be. But with that said, I don’t think it’s justifiable to end your life because you are sad or your life isn’t going how you want it to. There are a lot of ways to get help and solve any issues you may be having.
But with that said, you might as well just wait it out. There is all the time in the universe to be dead, but your time to be alive is limited. What do you have to lose- a few years of rotting in the ground? You might as well use that time to make the best out of your life, reading good books, watching good movies, and having a good laugh. Do you really never want to laugh again? Things are always changing. Why would you want to end your life when you have the chance to be happy? Bottom line is: No one is sad for their entire life. I’m not going to promise things will get better, but if they do- I think you should be around to see it.
