Suicide Doesn’t Make Sense — Mental Health Post #14

 

Today, I write with a heavy heart over the loss of someone I never even knew.
He was a friend of some of my friends, and he was acquainted with my brother.
He was only seventeen years old, and now he’s gone forever.

 


They say he was bullied to the point where he didn’t want to live anymore.
Tell me again that “the world we live in is beautiful”, and that people are “inherently good”. That’s 100% horse dung.
To bully someone into taking their own life is pathetic, disgusting, and physically sickening.
It’s 2016, teach your kids to stop being such morons (“moron” isn’t a strong enough word, but neither are any of the curse words that are coming to mind, so. I’ll leave it at that before I get myself in trouble!) And while you’re at it, make sure that YOU know that it’s not okay to degrade, put down, or abuse anybody. Ever. For any reason. FULL STOP. This is non-negotiable!
What do we, as humans, gain from hurting people? A sense of pride because we’re “bigger” than somebody else? If you bully someone into suicide, you have essentially committed murder. Congrats, you’re a murderer! I bet your parents would be so proud! 🙂 (The smiley is sarcastic, obviously!)
Seventeen years old. I just can’t wrap my head around that. He was younger than I am.
Rest in peace, Friend, though I didn’t know you, I know for a fact that you didn’t deserve this.
Seventeen is far too young to be gone, especially by your own hand.

  1. I feel for you, although I have never known someone who committed suicide. I was bullied heavily as a young kid and although I was not, when in my mid-teens, I contemplated suicide many times. Something always stopped me… a little voice in my head. I blame parents, for bullies. Pure and simple. Either they are not present enough into their kid’s life to see what kind of kid they have, or they themselves are bigots and bullies and have passed this learned behaviour onto their kids.

  2. Yes very sad. I blame the education system and also society for not controlling bullies and giving them consequences for their actions. Something has to be done about it. Rip to the 17 yr old kid. My heart is heavy.
