Clarification: she died from an irresponsible, avoidable accident, not suicide.
thank you for this.
Thank you so much for this.
That was beautiful – you can be wonderfully meaningful for someone who has so many fart jokes in her comics.
Thank you for both.
(yep, above post was mine, just got my name wrong – it’s been a long, long day).
i have trouble not getting mad at suiciders. you made this comic real good.
I can’t tell you how many people tried to say “helpful” things like that to me, after my brother died. Not a suicide, but an accident.
I often felt like telling them to cut the crap, but I think they felt like it was comforting to me somehow.
i myself have often tried to come up with a reason, and you’re right.. there isn’t one. its been two years and it still hurts.
thank you. your work is beautiful :)
In terms of suicide, I do believe senseless deaths are the worst; meaningless, purposeless. Still, I can’t say anyone is truly obligated to be here. Its certainly the noble (and some would say honorable) thing to do, enduring the seemingly endless annoyances, frustrations and anger for the sake of those you love. But for all the selfish reasons a person can find to die, I really find it hard to believe people have selfish reasons for wanting to live, aside from fear of death.
Hey guys, she died from a stupid, totally avoidable accident, not suicide <:)
my brother died before his time too. it all started with a car crash and ended two weeks later in an inept hospital….
I have been on the other side of that coin. My death would have been a suicide, not an accident. Thanks for helping me see the other side once more.
This made me tear up. I lost one of my best friends to cancer this year. I found out on my honeymoon. He was 21. I have felt all these EXACT things.
I needed to read this. I might save this image to my hard drive, if it’s okay. I find myself in very dark places all too often lately, and I need to be reminded that I need to live. Regardless of how it seems.
P.S. I’ve set this as my wallpaper on my main monitor. It keeps helping, little by little, every time I toggle or minimize a window. Thank you.
No, there isn’t a reason.
Sometimes dying is just better than being trapped here.
People saying things like this to me never helped. “You’re here not of your choice, now you have to abide by our rules and our laws, and if you don’t like it, too bad.” It just… drove home to me that they were never willing to do anything.
They said, “Come to me if you need help.”
But they never would try to change the world for me.
And all the world was why I wanted to die.
I don’t really know if you meant it this way, but people who say things like this have only made more clear their untrustworthiness. They weren’t just willing to make me suffer so they didn’t have to; they wanted to make me suffer so that they didn’t have to change.
Raevyn, reach out to someone close and hug them.
Jen, that is some childish shit right there.
“But they never would try to change the world for me.
And all the world was why I wanted to die.”
Wanting to kill yourself because someone can’t change the entire world for you is like wanting to kill yourself because someone can’t change water into wine for you. Get over yourself.
Mourn not those who are dead, for they are beyond all pain, mourn for those whom they leave behind.
Bill, you only say that because you don’t know how it feels. It’s impossible to explain.
