So, as much as I hate to admit that I like a David Spade movie… Joe Dirt had some great moments. In fact, I rather liked it. And ya know, Joe is right. You just gotta keep on keepin’ on.
I had therapy today and I talked to my therapist and I told her how, even though I think life sucks right now, I have no other options. What am I going to do, kill myself? I could NEVER kill myself. When I die I have an eternity of nothingness. After 70 or 80 short years, we will have nothing but… well…. nothingness. So why end it any sooner than you have to?
PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE. If anyone out there is considering suicide, don’t do it. No matter how bad things seem. No matter how many people you feel are against you. Don’t commit suicide.
I could tell you some reasons why, like, because if you do, all those people who have treated you badly will win. They will have their ultimate triumph…your life. Or I could tell you how life is short and not to make it any shorter, or I could even say something like any life lost is a tragedy…. and I do believe all of those things…but that’s not the main reason you shouldn’t commit suicide. The main reason is this:
You are better and stronger than everyone else.
So lets talk facts. A whopping majority of the population in developed western countries don’t know shit about emotion. They don’t know how to feel like we do. They don’t understand.
Most people don’t know the extreme situations. Whether your story be rape, abuse, bullying, physical ailments, self harm, loneliness, depression, anxiety, or any other major problem that holds you down. MOST PEOPLE WILL NEVER HURT THAT MUCH IN THEIR LIVES. That’sprobably why most of you feel so alone and isolated. I know from personal experience. Trying to talk to the commoner about problems like that is just pointless. It feels like talking to a brick wall.
BUT HERE IS THE OTHER SIDE OF THE STORY:
Though they may be kind of lucky that they can’t hit the lows like we can, they also can’t hit the highs. We just have the capacity to feel more. To see more. To know more. We are actually the superior beings here.
So say there is a scale from 0 to 100. 0 is complete, crushing pain. 100 is complete euphoria, and 50 is like contentment.
The commoner can Maybe feel from like 40 to 60. So they never get too hurt, but at the same time, what they know as happy, or accomplishment, or satisfaction, is only a fraction of what we can feel. And I know it probably hurts SO MUCH right now but DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!
The word needs you.
Take that pain and turn that shit around. Whip that bitch off your back and make a turn for the good. Create a non-profit. Write a book about your experience. Inspire others. Do something with your life to help others who are in your shoes but have not yet felt the spark that they need to pull themself out of the hole. That is what I’m hoping to do with this blog!
And if you ever ask yourself, “why me?”
Well the answer is because, there is nobody else. We are the movers and the shakers in this world. You think the commoner will ever do something great? You think that football jock who used to beat you up will make any great contributions to the world? Hell fuckin no! That bitch is sitting on his ass at a bar with some bunk ass wife. Still in your hometown. With kids. And no plans to change anything.
WE ARE THE ONES WHO DO GREAT THINGS.
Ya hear me bitches? The world is ours! Take all that pain and do something with it. Use it to make the world a better place. Im there for you and I believe in you.
