Whenever you’re feeling horrible, horrific, hopeless, helpless, (many other words that apply)…as if your life is simply more painful than it is pleasurable, as if it would be a relief to be rid of that pain, (many other statements that apply), think about this:
Do you have anyone, or anything…any being…in your life that loves you, cares about you, depends on your presence in some way? That would be greatly harmed by your absence, your non-existence?
If you don’t…adopt. Pets are some of the best friends you can ever have.
If you do, then your existence serves a purpose. It is necessary. And therefore, if only for that, you must exist. If you believe at all in taking care of those who love you, and who you love.
That’s what I do. You can’t abandon those you love, no matter what…or you don’t love them.
Therefore I must exist. Therefore, I do.
P.S. – Because it wouldn’t be a fully “me” post without a bit of silliness and mockery, here goes:
Basically what I’m saying is that offing myself is RIGHT OUT.
So if I ever turn up mysteriously mostly-dead, take it with the validity of this:
“No. He died. He have heart attack and fell out of window onto
exploding bomb, and was killed in shooting accident.” – MPFC, ‘The Cycling Tour’
