To think there can be a painless suicide is a contridiction. Whilst one might be thinking of the physical pain one forgets the emotional pain. And here, in the question lies the answer to our depression, our emotional disconnection, a wall has reached above us, a no man’s land, a void, so sad how pain of living can cause such grief that one might consider taking their life. The only thing that is truely precious.
I know, I’ve been there, yes I know that pain, safe in a non world, nights of sheer emotional pain, emptiness, pointlessness beyond control. And the answer, how to get out of it? Apart from taking anti-depressants and seeing a shrink I see this. I assure you its not death. But a choice, to face oneself and the shadows that imprison your heart, put never better I feel than by Shakespeare’s Hamlet, the most famous of depressives..
To be, or not to be: that is the question:
Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer
The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,
Or to take arms against a sea of troubles,
And by opposing end them?
Well enough of my heaviness lets move on. I hope you deep down know there is no painless suicide but what there is from someone who’s spent the last year practically staring at a wall, is hope. I hope to give you a little of it below:
All the best!!
Anyway, look, I’m not a pyschologist, and dont listen to me, but I’ve got some videos for you just so you know you’re not alone at your computer screen. We care for you so please live and do the best with your life.
To give your tired eyes a rest we’ll kick off with our first video, this one is David Bowie as Ziggy Stardust, damn when I use to listen to this album, I never had a friend in the world. Anyway its “Rock and Roll Suicide” and it presents a sentiment of community in times of strife.
I hope you enjoy these vids!! - LA
Good to see good old David Bowie again there..still alive and making songs.
Below are two great musical creatives who died too young. Suicide can never be painless, to yourself, and to others, I know depression can be painful yet suicide is not the answer. Relax and take a few minutes just to watch these following videos.
In the early hours of Sunday, May 18, 1980, in his kitchen after having viewed Werner Herzog’s film Stroszek and listening to Iggy Pop’s The Idiot, Curtis hanged himself. Many rumours surround the possible reasons for his suicide, with his poor health and failed marriage most often suggested.
Curtis was cremated and his ashes were buried in Macclesfield Cemetery. The inscription on his memorial stone, “Love Will Tear Us Apart”, was chosen by Deborah Curtis, and is a reference to the Joy Division song.
In the early morning hours of September 18, 1970, Jimi Hendrix was found dead in the basement flat of the Samarkand Hotel at 22 Lansdowne Crescent in London.
Whilst his death was a tragic accident its path had been set in motion, if only that path had been turned, such talent, gone, burnt out!!! What a waste.
Well sad that the above talented people all died, what a waste, whilst to youngsters it can seem cool what a waste, what’s the answer, when this world does so much to drag us down. Yet suicide isn’t the answer, those that make the world bad will only continue, they must be stopped. Please don’t die.
The two videos below are just a couple of helpers, they’re just opinions from a couple of chaps so take them with a pinch of salt, just give them a go…..
