Help those who seem okay

Help those who seem okay

Yesterday someone who meant so much to so many people took his own life. Although I didn’t know him, I grew up watching him dance on TV and then move on to become Ellen’s DJ. He had such an infectious energy and he made me wish I knew how to dance (which I unfortunately cannot and will not ever be a dancer). I was so devastated to see this article today. It’s heartbreaking. People say suicide is selfish, and I agree to a certain extent. When you look at the beautiful family he created it makes you wonder why he would go through with something like this. Where I disagree is that I think when you’re suicidal it can eventually turn into a compulsion. Even if you don’t want to leave the people you love behind, it may not be enough to pull you out of the hole you’ve dug so deep for yourself. Depression is no joke. Many people don’t understand how dark the places are that we travel to. Although I’ve never attempted suicide, I have thought about what would happen if I just drove into oncoming traffic. I’ve had that thought quite a few times in my life. If I’m being completely transparent, I’ve even closed my eyes a few times while driving. It was a compulsion. It scared me. Sometimes I wish I didn’t have to deal with life, but I don’t want to die I’d be too scared. I wonder how it really feels to want to take your own life. It must be such a horrific feeling. I wish more people wondered. Sometimes you hit the point where you just don’t care anymore. Life is so exhausting. It truly is. Who knows what was going on inside of his head, but I can bet you not many people asked. I feel like if they did, this probably wouldn’t have been the result. This is why I’m urging people to open up on this platform. Someone commits suicide every 12 minutes in America. That’s scary. That’s up to us to try and lower that number. Maybe not literally the people on this website, but the mental health awareness communities as a whole. I really hope this movement can shed light on how serious these things are. Check on the people that smile. It could very well be a fake one with lots of pain behind it. RIP Twitch.
