Single And Over 40 And Not Suicidal About It

Single And Over 40 And Not Suicidal About ItThis tagline has given me a lot of attention, all positive. I’m a little surprised by that because every time I see it, it actually bothers me. I don’t want anyone thinking that I take suicide lightly or think that it’s funny, it really isn’t.

I have known people who have killed themselves and I still know (and see) the people who loved them. I see what is left when a loved one kills themselves.

Suicide sucks. Worse, it’s kind of contagious, it leaves the people around them depressed and never the same. They start a downward spiral of their own, it’s a horrible and brutal cycle.

I hope that this tagline of mine hasn’t hurt anyone. Consider it gone. I’m changing it because it just damned well hurts.

Sorry, my friends.

  1. This is very considerate. I never saw your original posting, and if I had, I’d probably not have taken it badly. However, it’s nice to say this for those who may have needed/wanted to hear it. What nice thing.

  2. Ther’s a saying, ‘life begins at forty’…you’ve chosen to live life in your own way. Don’t know about others, but I find it appreciable enough. … 🙂

    And, also, I never looked down or think of the word ‘suicide’ as derogatory, nor it’s a cowardly act. We love our life and it needs a lot of courage to end it… ( my personal way of thinking, of course)
