Suicide -Only 25 cents!

๐—œ ๐—ฏ๐—ฒ๐˜ ๐—œ ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜‚๐—ด๐—ต๐˜ ๐˜†๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—ฟ ๐—ฎ๐˜๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐˜€ ๐—ฝ๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐˜๐˜‚๐—ฟ๐—ฒ!


Let's talk about ๐•Š๐•Œ๐•€โ„‚๐•€๐”ป๐”ผ. It is definitely an uncomfortable topic, and my words are meant to provoke discomfort and conversation.

Should someone in an altered and negative mental health state be criticized for "attempting suicide", "completing suicide", "committing suicide", "un-aliving themselves"? ๐Ÿ†ˆ๐Ÿ…ด๐Ÿ†‚ and ๐Ÿ…ฝO.

I put those terms in quotations because the "appropriate" terms are forever changing. Just call it whatever feels more acceptable for yourself. No judgement!


So let's talk about why we ๐˜€๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜‚๐—น๐—ฑ๐—ป'๐˜ criticize someone who has attempted or committed suicide. ๐—ง๐—ต๐—ฒ๐˜† ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ฒ ๐—ถ๐—ป ๐—ฎ ๐—น๐—ผ๐˜ ๐—ผ๐—ณ ๐—บ๐—ฒ๐—ป๐˜๐—ฎ๐—น ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ/๐—ผ๐—ฟ ๐—ฝ๐—ต๐˜†๐˜€๐—ถ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—น ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐—ถ๐—ป!

Suicide is the ๐—ข๐—ก๐—Ÿ๐—ฌ way out of feeling pain every day. Now, chronic illness and severe mental health struggles ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐—ป lessen the blow to those left behind the ๐—ฆ๐—Ÿ๐—œ๐—š๐—›๐—ง๐—˜๐—ฆ๐—ง bit, but not by much.

We know our mental health system and medical system may have failed them repeatedly, so now we are left with a lot of anger too. We do understand that death was a ๐—น๐—ฎ๐˜€๐˜ resort. It was your choice.


Why should we feel ๐˜‚๐—ฝ๐˜€๐—ฒ๐˜ with those who have attempted or committed suicide?! ๐——๐—ถ๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐˜† ๐˜€๐˜๐—ผ๐—ฝ ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐—ฑ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ธ ๐—ฎ๐—ฏ๐—ผ๐˜‚๐˜ ๐—ต๐—ผ๐˜„ ๐—บ๐—ฎ๐—ป๐˜† ๐—ฝ๐—ฒ๐—ผ๐—ฝ๐—น๐—ฒ ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐˜† ๐—ต๐—ฎ๐˜ƒ๐—ฒ or would have ๐—ถ๐—บ๐—ฝ๐—ฎ๐—ฐ๐˜๐—ฒ๐—ฑ ๐˜„๐—ถ๐˜๐—ต ๐˜๐—ต๐—ฒ๐—ถ๐—ฟ ๐—ฑ๐—ฒ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ต?! How many parents are left wondering what they could have said and done? How many kids are left behind without their parent?
