Day 254 by ErinBird Day 254 by ErinBird
Name : Suicide awareness ~ 254.366

Today (Monday , 10th September) was suicide awareness day . And technically it's also suicide awareness week . A lot of people were supporting awareness of it by writing 'love' on their wrists and taking pictures . I did take a picture of my wrist with the word love on it a while ago , but I really didn't like the picture so this is a better one (:
The objects around my hand are: a knife , 2 razors , rope (well , shoelace) and matches . Someone I knew commited suicide , so I just feel like I should also post this photo so more people are aware of it . If you know someone close to suicide , help them out . You might just save their life .

Enjoy , comment & fave ! ☮

What about survivors who still don't know if surviving was the right choice ??

Wouldn't it be nice if instead of becoming suicidal, victims of abuse and rape and crime and bullying just naturally rose up against their attackers and killed them? (I know this will not be a popular comment, but just think how much better the world could be.)

I do agree with you actually .. if they turned on the people who were causing them harm , life would be so much better . Thanks for sharing this :aww: it's made me think differently about it now .

Hi Erin (Sci-Fi-ish thot) what if everyone in the world had the power to kill someone just by wishing it ? I think this may actually be the theme of some feminist fiction. Unfortunately, that power would be just as abused as every other power people have ... but certain kinds of crime could just be... stopped, and might disappear

That's true . Have you ever read or watched Death Note ? It's an anime/manga about how a 17 year old boy finds a book , and if he writes anyone's name in it , they die . He tries to make the world a better place by killed off all the criminals .. and as you can imagine he loses his mind with all the power he has haha . If you haven't seen it , I defiantly recommend it :aww:

"Death Note" definitely a concept worth thinking about :bulletblack: Not the usual "power corrupts", but "power destroys"
:bulletblack: I actually have recently been thinking that a person with a few god-like powers would become quite alienated, maybe become "far less" than a person instead of more

Yes, I've seen quite a few pictures of people arm's with "Love" written on them and that's it. I'm glad you decided to make it more interesting. :)

And I suppose that saving a life may be just as simple as talking to someone about it. To show you care, that they're not alone. One can look at it as a subtle way to be a hero. :)

My friend has tried to commite suicide a few times already. I think I might make a picture of the sort as well. ^^

if you can give that friend some time, maybe an hour a week away from home in your house, away from the stress of home, that might help her. not time to engage in forbidden behaviors, just a little relief from her situation -- tho it might mean you have to personally stand up to her parents and tell them she needs some mental health time away from them ... if her problem is at school then she may need some non-school adult to explain something to ... please don't give up on her

Not sure that love is involved in suicide... I cut down my best friend who hung himself in my shed, I can still smell his deodorant and see his eyes... his girlfriend is still scarred from the event, no one knew he was going to do it, one minute he was having breakfast then 5 minutes later he ended it....he had 3 young children....love??? I am not sure.... just my feelings on the subject...

Well , I had a friend who commited suicide too , so I know what it is like . But I guess the reason why love it part of it because you should love yourself instead of seeing the bad things in life . Like , love the good things that you have been given .

All dangerous things that cause suicide .

Not to be too picky, but while these objects are used to commit suicide the objects and the ownership of them don't cause suicide. I don't mean to be a jerk about it but that statement can be inferred that the objects are to blame.
