I have never contemplated suicide,
but goddamn

have I thought about contemplating it.

About this Bitlet

This is me examining our morbid curiosity with why someone would inflict their own death upon themselves: only those who attempt such a tragedy know why, but, for the rest of that can't fathom ever doing such an act, this is as close as we can get to understanding their emotions.

Browse Bitlets

Bitlets are about quantity, not quality. Free-write at least one a day about what is on your mind, going on around you, or the state of your life. Ignore the urge to edit; it's not about being profound on purpose, it's about stumbling on it by accident.

:nod: Took the words right out of my mouth, you did. I've never been able to explain this.

This one bitlet has seemed to resonate with a LOT of people. More than all the others I'd say. Which is sad in a way, but also, good that they never reached that point.

This one is brilliant. A bit deep and a bit humorist—perhaps even a tiny bit satirical.

Thanks. And thanks again for taking the time to look at these, it's greatly appreciated. =)

how meta.

we have quite the fascination with death in general but yes, suicide especially.
