To those of you that think suicide is a plea for attention, a selfish act that is pre-meditated with the intent to maliciously and emotionally destroy the lives of those involved; not only are you incorrect in your cruel and heartless judgement, you are also misinformed. If you have never struggled with mental health issues, bite your tongue. Your criticism is futile, and not welcome. You are the problem. You are the reason so many choose to silence their pain, instead of seeking out help for it.
I urge those that are beside themselves with hopelessness, or aching so badly inside they feel like they are without purpose: speak out, and loudly. The worst of your very HUMAN flaws hold redemption. You are cherished, your presence is wanted, and most importantly, you are not alone.
