I could spend this post mindlessly mentioning the anniversary of Revenge, but I won’t today. Instead, I’d rather talk about suicide prevention. I haven’t made a serious post in a while, but that’s because I’ve been burnt out myself. I’m not here to give you a hotline number and pretend like I’ve done something for you. I, myself, can’t possibly give you the support you need without directly being there, and I can’t be. And that’s something that I had to accept in my life - that I can’t possibly save everyone. But I want to remind you all that a lot of you have friends or acquaintances, people you follow on social media, and they could be hurting. You could be hurting. I want you all to reach out to your friends, extend a hand, do something. I have gotten more meaningful support from an acquaintance checking in than I’ve ever gotten from a heavily retweeted suicide hotline number. That’s not enough. Nobody wants to realize that the only help they have left is a stranger who does not care anyway. Talk to your friends, make sure they’re heard. You don’t have to be their therapist, don’t treat your friends like your therapists. Remember to take care of yourself first, but always extend your assistance to those who need it when you’ve got both feet on the ground. If you feel upset, please reach out. If you feel that something isn’t right about your friend, even if they’re always sad and it seems to you that it’s safe to leave them alone, reach out to them anyway. Tell them you hope they are doing well. It’s not the solution to suicide but it sure as hell helps. Don’t forget that you are all meaningful beyond what you can possibly imagine.
