I know it's like 4 am pst, but I honestly don't have anywhere else to express myself currently, so funny pics is my last resort. Christina Grimmie was murdered earlier today. She was 22 and seemingly happy and healthy. She has helped many people I know, and she has helped thousands of others with her music. I know that people die on a daily basis, and it's tragic. However, this death has hit me extremely hard since I am about her age and have felt very suicidal lately. I feel ashamed that I have wanted to die, while she, a wonderful human being, has been killed. I'm honestly drunk right now and don't know where I'm trying to go with this. I guess just appreciate the time that you have, even if you don't have much to appreciate, because it can end at any time, whether you want it to or not.
@Definitely Not a Cat, Mate, do not be ashamed to speak to one of your parents, friends or other family members about it. More blokes suffer from depression than women do so its not just you who's going through this struggle, tell your family and then a doctor. There is absolutely no shame in it
@Definitely Not a Cat, hey recognize people are there for you, I have been there and what stopped was how much time I have left. When you want to die you at the bottom it can only get better. I am not promising happiness for the rest of your life but i am telling you there will be times of happiness, every suicide victim who choose life in the end never regretted it I know don't regret choosing life. So when you are feeling down give yourself a day. Literally take no responsibility and do what you love watch Netflix and eat an entire tub of ice cream and don't feel guilty
@Insane Chuck Norris, I've seen a few psychologists. None have seemed to help. I think I'm just in a rough patch. I promised an old family friend that I won't kill myself. I just keep thinking about it. I guess this death makes me feel embarrassed. I know it isn't possible, but I really wish she could still be alive, especially since her life has been proven to be meaningful and helpful to others. I wish I could give her my life. She deserves to be here, as do many others who have died much too young. I wish I could sacrifice myself to save them.
@Definitely Not a Cat, I understand I've lost a few family members, but think of your position in the world. You have sooooo much time left on this earth to see it and experience new things, don't end the journey before it's even begun
@Insane Chuck Norris, I won't. I honestly can't think of a circumstance where I would kill myself. My mom has told me that she would commit suicide if I died, and I promised a family friend that I won't kill myself. It's just weird to want to die and then see someone who wants to live get murdered. It's a weird position to be in. I feel like I'm partially responsible for her death, in a weird kind of way.
@Definitely Not a Cat, you can't change what has already been done, but you can always be the next Christina for someone. Depression is hard, being suicidal is harder. There's only so much you can tell others about it, some just don't understand. Just know that there is always someone that cares about you. We don't want you to be sad, we don't want you to leave this world behind, we want you to enjoy life. @NSA is watching you is right: give yourself a day. I've had to call out of work when feeling suicidal, I gave myself a day to deal with it. I stayed home, cried, hated myself, slept, cried some more, ate everything I wanted to, and watched YouTube videos (I like watching gamers like Vanoss and Chilled Chaos). Don't try to keep it all inside. For me, it's easier when I accept that I have these thoughts and feelings, but I always give myself a day to let them pass.
@Definitely Not a Cat, as someone who has attempted suicide, I am relieved and happy that you chose to speak about your feelings. Remember these 2 things - your feelings are never 'wrong', and don't ever be sorry about what you have to do to survive. Love from CT
@mattswife, thank you, everyone. I feel a bit better. I'll provide a more coherent response in the morning when I'm not wasted. I can't really explain how I feel about the situation at hand, but I love and appreciate all of you from the bottom of my heart. Thank you for helping me through some of the toughest times I've had. You're all beautiful people, and I hope you have a wonderful night/morning
@Definitely Not a Cat, I totally feel you. I went thru this when Cory Monteith died. It's a strange grief. Take care of yourself, respect your emotions. They're real, and they're normal
@Definitely Not a Cat, I am 52 years old I have been a computer engineer for 34 years. I can say with certainty that the friendships cultivated online are just as strong as the ones offline. We are a community much like a village or town, as such we care about each other. We would be saddened deeply if something befell any member. Take care of yourself and take heart in knowing we all share a common bond in laughter. I wish i could say more to help you in these trying times. You have a place here with us.
@Definitely Not a Cat, dieing is not tragic, it's just the circle of life, if you accept the marvelous gift of life you should know that you would have to give it back in the end, because the circumstances of one's birth are irrelevant, it is what you do with the gift of life that determines who you are.
Sorry for this long post
@Definitely Not a Cat, I know a lot of people have already said a lot, but I'd like to give a good example of what life has to offer after choosing to not take your life. First, at 23 I had a beautiful baby boy. It doesn't matter where I go with him, someone always stops to say how adorable he is. He's intelligent, sweet, absolutely hilarious and the best thing that has ever happened to me. Next, is my husband. He is going through a tough time in his life. He's coming to terms with things that have happened in his childhood and is extremely depressed. Him and his mother have both said if I hadn't been here for him, he might have gone down a much darker path, maybe even killed himself. If I had killed myself when I wanted to, I would've never had the joy of seeing my son or been there for my husband at his lowest point. Like whiteGirlSatan said, you could end up being someone's Christina. If you persevere, you can experience some wonderful things in life.
@Definitely Not a Cat, 3 years ago, my aunt commuted suicide. It's a day I will never forget. I was never really close to her, since she lived on the other side of the united states, and I only got to see her once ever few years. However, I will never ever forget my mother waking my up, crying uncontrollably, in a pain that will be etched into my memory forever, I'm tearing up thinking about it now. Almost two years ago, the love of my life, my girlfriend for almost two years, left me, without reason, and over the phone. I was crushed. I was depressed beyond terms, and started thinking about what would happen if I were to commit suicide. But I couldn't, knowing that it would absolutely destroy my friends and family, and they would hurt more than I am at the time. Find happiness in the people around you, and know there is ALWAYS someone who cares about you, even if you don't know how much. Always someone who then go through what you did, because of you if you make the wrong choices.
@Definitely Not a Cat, it wouldn't let me write more so: Stay strong, find meaning in the little things, don't try to forget your past, or what is causing you pain, come to terms with it, accept it, and use it to build you into a stronger person, instead of tearing you down.
@Definitely Not a Cat, and one more thing, a saying from my dad, from when I used to play golf: "You never know if the next shot you hit may be the best shot you ever make." The same is applicable to life, you never know if the next day may be your best.
@Definitely Not a Cat, I will say this and it will be the most important thing you've heard all day.
You need to live.
Seriously, if you kill yourself you'll miss the next update. Nobody wants to miss the next update.
There's no Funnypics three feet under. Think about it for a moment. Imagine yourself not laughing because you missed that dank meme.
And if you miss that dank meme, you'll get angry, and pull yourself out of the grave as a zombie moaning, "MEMES... MEMES..." To be honest, no body wants a zombie going after our phones looking for memes. It wouldn't be pleasant.
And you bet it'll be contagious. One bite and now they're a meme loving zombie too, and you know what else? Dickbutt will be there to rule over all of you as the meme zombie overlord, taking over the world.
Don't let the world be taken over by Dickbutt. Live for Funnypics.
@Imaginaut, I feel like you're one of the people behind those "get rid of cable" commercials for directv.
If you have to be paid to be nice then I feel bad for you as a person.
@PeanutButterPopsicle, see I am nice to those who deserve my niceness and I am a jerk to jerks
@PeanutButterPopsicle, I don't think you've ever worked in retail...
@A Studly Muffin, or fast food
@Zodiac308, I've worked in fast food, and am nice to people on the daily, in agree with pbp. If anything, working those two types of jobs should be the reason you're nice to people in the first place.
@PeanutButterPopsicle, If you're good at something never do it for free
@A Studly Muffin, I have worked retail. Yes, customers are frustrating. Doesn't mean being nice becomes difficult.
