    Default damn.

    I know this is a bit of downer but oh well.
    A friend of mine committed suicide. I don't know the details yet, but it's unfortunate. He was a really smart guy and I wish I could've known him better. I wasn't really close to him, but a lot of my other friends were.
    It wasn't that surprising, in retrospect. He expressed himself very strongly in his aesthetic. That doesn't make it any less sad, of course. On the contrary, it's far more tragic that he wasn't able to find the kind of help he needed when he was openly vulnerable. I can only hope that he is at peace now. If you believe in prayers, it would be highly appreciated if you could extend some wishes and good vibes in general to his family and best friends. It's really hitting them hard right now.
    Thanks guys.

    A friend of my girlfriend just off'd himself a couple of weeks ago. 16 or 60, the tragic and sudden removal of someone from your life is never an easy thing. Vibes~.

    That's very sad. I hate to hear that. I feel horrible for his family and friends. I've been in those shoes twice. You live the rest of your life wondering why they did it, and what, if anything, that you could have done to prevent it. It's a sad, yet very angry feeling, and it sucks!!

    Man, I'm sorry to hear that. I know that you know this but neither you nor your friends have to cope with this alone. Seek help if you need it.


    My condolences and vibes

    I assumed that meant he looked a bit emo, or something.

    Sorry to hear that, little bro. Best wishes to you, yours, and his.
    Every love that made me lose my reasoning. Every chord that made my conscience ache. Every day spent counting hours. Well, none of them comes close to singing back a song inside my head.

    I remember calloused hands and paint-stained jeans, and I remember safe-as-houses self-belief.

    What do you mean by this?
    He was very into goth-like and black metal culture. Spikes, corpse paint, always wearing black, heavy boots, he was very into occult and religious imagery, but not in a stupid, "i'm so rebellious guys" way. He actually knew what it all symbolized. Now it seems like that was a sign. Before it happened, it just seemed like that was "his thing." Of course, we'll never know why he did what he did, but it's hard not to feel like it could've been prevented.

    Lots of goths are perfectly not suicidal. Lots of regular looking people are suicidal. I wouldn't make any hindsight assumptions based on the way he dressed. You can't tell if someone is going to off themselves by looking at them.

    Anyway, suicide sucks and I'm sorry you lost your friend. So often it's almost a taboo subject and I feel like if more people talked about it then maybe more people who are vulnerable might get the help they need.
