“Don’t give up five minutes before your miracle . . .” (Barbara Niven)
If you had the option of letting people know the ONE thing they should know about you, what would it be?
What you must know about me, unequivocally, is that I DO NOT joke about suicide, and that if you do it around me, whatever relationship we have, friendship, loveship, godship, gunship, kinship, workmateship, clientship, acquaintanceship, whatevership… THAT ship will have sailed, never to return again. With a big “FuckYou” flag waving proud atop. And so, a 20-year friendship is suddenly gone. We have a saying, where I come from: “Guerra avisada no mata soldados” – you knew the bullets were coming. You should’ve ducked.
Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. Your shit will not remain shit. I *guarantee* it. PLEASE reach out if you’re considering taking your life (to me or to anyone you think would listen).
