and death i think is no parenthesis” —E.E. Cummings
People want you to be happy.
Don’t keep serving them your pain!
If you could untie your wings
and free your soul of jealousy,
you and everyone around you
would fly up like doves.

How in any way, shape, or form is this question okay to you? I’m friends with Kyle because he’s a good person, he’s nice, funny, great just like any other friend. Kyle has depression, so he gets urges to kill himself. I DO TOO. I mean, many people who deal with depression have that urge. They feel like it’s the best plan, and that no one cares or appreciates them enough for it to matter when they’re gone. I feel like him too, I want to die way more than what’s deemed normal or sane. That’s what happens when you have an illness like that. But just because he gets those lows, and is verbal about them, doesn’t make him a bad person, or an attention seeker. It’s how he feels. And I don’t give a fuck what any of you think. I’m not going to stop being friends with him because of it. If anything he needs as much support from anyone as possible. And I’m here to give him that support. Despite his flaws he’s a great friend, and he’s not pathetic whatsoever. So if you think he’s pathetic then you are calling me pathetic as well. So that anon, is why I am friends with him.
Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun;
Pour away the ocean and sweep up the wood.
For nothing now can ever come to any good.” —W.H. Auden, Selected Poems
