(As I have said previously, I lost someone close to me recently, so this might color my writing.)
I know you are out there. I know you are considering it. We are worried about you. We love you. Even if you seem happy-go-lucky and joyful. Even if you are as boisterous as Guy Fieri or something. Please, tell somebody. We need to know. Don’t let us find out the hard way.
I’m going to tell you some truths that may be unbelievable now, but they are true:
You are not a burden.
You are not letting anyone down.
We love you. Your family, friends, other people, even strangers – we love you.
You are a pillar. Your presence means something to somebody.
There is still something for you to do on this planet.
When a person dies, by any means, they leave a hole in the fabric of humanity. They don’t mean to, but they do.
If you’re going to die, you will lose any chance of helping other people in your life.
It may seem like I’m talking out of my backside, but rest assured, everything I say in this vein has truth backing it up.
