Anonymous asked: you know that feeling? being simply lost. well i fucking hate it. i dont seem to have a best friend, nor do i have any real friend. i walk around, searching for nothing. because i hate my life, and i hate this feeling. i know suicide isnt the answer- but i'm still contemplating whether it is.
Wow, you’re really testing my commitment to flippancy here. But this is a subject that is near and dear to my heart, so here goes…. People talk a lot about what it is to be human. For ages philosophers have wrestled with the question of what separates us from the animals. Some people think it’s our belief in religion, some think it’s our intellect, some think it’s our use of tools. Nope. It’s suicide. I know, I know, animals commit suicide too. Ants willingly die for the sake of the colony. Not what I’m talking about here. That’s blind loyalty to the continuation of the species. I’m talking about blatantly selfish suicide in defiance of all biological instincts. I’m talking about being able to imagine a better life so vividly that you can’t live in this one. Who else does that? That is fucking amazing. And the truth is not everyone CAN do that. There are millions of people that don’t have that kind of imagination. That can’t FEEL what they think. Those people just walk through life without feeling it. Fuck them. We need more people like you. I hate that the tortured artist has been so romanticized that we overlook the tortured part. It probably wasn’t any fun being Kurt Cobain. But he did change the world. I wish he had stuck around to see how things worked out but if it meant him being just another sheep, maybe it was better. So here is the thing, I’m not going to tell you not to commit suicide. Nope. I’m going to tell you that you can do it anytime you want. That’s your ace in the hole. But you can only do it once. And there’s a lot you can do between now and then. And it CAN be fun. Life has a way of changing unexpectedly. So stick around, I’d like to see what you’re gonna do. At the very least have a kid before you go. If you’re thinking about suicide that’s a sign you’ve got a fairly impressive mind. Mix those genes into the gene pool before you flush them away. We’ve got too many sheep already.
