folks are forever shocked when someone kills themselves.
i guess since i’ve suffered with depression,
i know that journey all too well.
i’m not one who is surprised anymore,
especially when it came to the well off.
i use to be confused for selfish reasons.
“this person has all this money,
can go anywhere in the world,
and probably has no worries…”
again: i was looking from a material perspective.
i get it now tho…
so why would someone,
like kate spade for example,
hang herself and leave her world behind today?
Suffering doesn’t stop once your dreams come true
matter a fact,
that’s when it really amplifies.
they’re the most depressed and emotionally broken.
many of them got to where the are,
not off the strength of passion,
but success became another form of prozac.
they challenge themselves to be “the best”,
but once they reach that point,
they are left to ask “so what’s next?”.
this is when thoughts of “still not good enough” start to sink in.
don’t even throw in how mean other folks can be.
we should be a little nicer to each other,
but we live in a “dragging” society now.
the moment you aren’t as great as your “competition”,
society lets you know how much of a “flop” you are.
this is why those with mental health issues should limit social media.
not only are folks fontin’ tough behind a phone,
but it’s a fake world we can get caught up in as if it was real.
everyone in it is suffering in their own way.
i don’t know why kate spade killed herself.
she left behind her daughter,
folks who loved her,
many who bought her products,
and others who are simply asking “why?”.
whatever the reason,
she chose today to be the day to stop the pain.
the only issue is the hurt that she left behind.
rip to kate spade
lowkey: what if her daughter discovered her body?
if you’re thinking thoughts of suicide,
please: reach out to someone.
talk to someone before making such a big decision.
