The post is about a search term that I often get, which goes along the lines of “suicide, no girlfriend.” The comments are from Young Men of a Certain Age, and they always leave me with this urge to travel to wherever the commenter lives to bring them cookies and a hug.
It hurts me when people are hurting, but the comments on that post are especially haunting. Maybe it’s because my own father committed suicide, or possibly because I’ve known several people who were in situations where it seemed that the only thing missing in their lives was the love of a Significant Other. Maybe it’s because at various times in my life, I too have suffered depression so great that it seemed that no words of advice could snap me out of it.
For whatever reason, I feel that the answers that I give to people who comment on “Suicide, No Girlfriend” have become repetitive, redundant and repetitive. How many times or ways can you say “don’t DO it!”?
So, I’m asking for some help. Because I happen to have the most brilliant readers on the planet, I’m wondering if some of you might visit the “Suicide, No Girlfriend” post and leave some thoughts of your own for these guys. I can’t figure out another way to do it, besides for you to leave your advice in the comments section. Then, when people write, I can just say, “read above.”
Maybe we can work a little blog magic here. I thank you in advance for your help, you wonderful people you.
Slow brain update: I just thought of another way to do this. If you want to just write something about the subject on your blog, put the link in the comments section of that earlier post. That way, people can find their way to your wonderful sites. Who knows? Reading through some of your other posts may cheer some people up. I know it does me!
