A Bully Takes His Own Life,Suicide Is Not The Answer
There should be another way
He had a boat, a nice fishing boat, his favorite pastime was fishing from that nice expensive boat. He had a job, money, a beautiful home, a serene, beautiful place to live, a place many people would give an arm and leg to just vacation on. He had more than most people dream of.
But sadly he was severely depressed. And that my friends doesn’t make all that perfect stuff in the world a happy man. If you can’t pull yourself out of a deep depression your beautiful life might as well be a pile of mud. The beautiful town he lived in soon becomes boring and ugly, and eventually the beauty invisible to him.
Fishing on his prized boat is now forced, no matter how much he loves it. His boat sits docked because his heart is not in it anymore, it is a shell waiting. His parents don’t understand, nor do his friends, because he has everything he ever wanted, no matter who he picked on to get it.
They also don’t understand why their son, best friend, girlfriend took a bullet to his head. And who if anyone understands that, except those that know exactly what he feels in that deep dark place.Because that pain of sadness and sorrow have overtaken his brain like a tightly wound clock. He bullied his way all through high school, what comes around goes around is not always fair and just.
Pretty things can’t always pull you back from the brink of darkness. Sometimes suicide is the only answer to a workable problem. But at the time they cannot see that there are other solutions. It isn’t the easy way out, it is grief, sorrow and the end of the world.
In 2007, it was the tenth leading cause of death in the U.S., accounting for 34,598 deaths. So suicide is not something to be taken lightly.
Leaving those left behind in the living world full of confusion and heartache is of course unfair isn’t it? Wondering why a perfectly happy man took his own life. Many people think it is THE easy way out. But if you sat and thought about it for a bit, there is nothing easy about killing yourself. It is probably one of the hardest decisions of your life to make. To end your life, leaving behind all those you love. Knowing you will never see your family and friends again. All you loved means nothing now. All because your heart hurts and your head cannot sort out the pain.
So, no easy way out is that decision made easy. Inner demons of darkness fight within on how NOT to give into the end of your life. Because being that depressed there is no light, there are no words of compassion to pull you back from that decision to stay where you cannot. If it were so easy more people would be able to do it more often. Remember suicide is an act of desperation, an act of pain beyond intense, an act trying to flush out the darkness.
Ending the darkness and letting go the pain he believes will never cease. He BELIEVES FAMILY AND FRIENDS WOULD BE BETTER OFF WITHOUT HIM. HE IS CONVINCED. He believes it will be easier for them, but that myth is baloney. The only way they would know the carnage left behind is to be able to see. Those who choose suicide want to live, but find death a way out of problems they believe will never go away no matter how hard they try. So they instead choose the hardest decision of their lives, hoping it leaves peace with their friends and families, when it only confuses and devastates them for the rest of their lives.
