to those who don’t want to live anymore in this benign world

Your life.
Everyone is created for something.
Judging, cooking, building, helping.
Everything helps at least one person.
Judging, your giving your opinion, giving advice. Not sitting around and saying it's fine.
Cooking, feeding your family, feeding all the poor.
Building, a skill to give other's shelter with tue correct materials.
All of this, you see it at the birth of yourself. They talk about you having your mother's mouth, father's nose. Baby food is given to you, helping you stay alive. You're put under major care, a roof over your head. All of it.
Helping is not nothing. Helping is a category, of all these are important.
Don't sit in the corner. Stop giving to peer pressure. Stop being controlled. Don't become a slave. Stop being enclosed, staying in shade crying. You're passing on the pain to others.
Leaving forever, your dog or cat knows why you left.
Leaving your wife and children, no enjoyment given.
Leaving your home, your friends left curious.
Dropping your phone forever, leaving civilization.
Nothing can be done by passing on the pain. Yoh can't give up easily. The baby food whe. you were a baby, you'd never eat, but still tasted, chewed, and swallowed. Retrieving the ball from the neighbors as a child, afraid. You went over, yet the neighbors were friendly. Beating that game level at the age of a teenager, after many hours. Completing college, getting great grades.
You never gave up.
So why are you giving up? Hiding isn't the answer, you've told a secret, or somebody's secret, right? So stop hiding it, please.
I can be an acquaintance, a friend, or even step-family, anything for you.
Your dog, all taken care of. Your family, all healthy and happy. Everything will be okay.
Everything will be okay.?

Another wonderfully written piece. Again I hit the like button. So often we don't live for ourselves but for the opinion of others and when that fails we feel like we have failed ourselves and in some ways we have because we can't live for others, only for ourselves. I hope many people read this and understand that our focus determines our reality, and that the only opinion that truly matters is our own and that of our creator. Well written and another thought provoking piece.
