Title: Dying was the least painful part
You read her name in a news article. She had killed herself and was the headline.
You shake your head at disbelief.
She had it all, why would she have done it?
She had the looks, she had the job and she had the money.
Life was generous to her.
She didn't have the same problems as you, after all she had priviliges you can only dream of.
But what you don't know is that underneath her picture perfect smile
Was a woman struggling with her mental health.
She woke up one day feeling hollow
She felt useless, helpless and worthless.
She tried to fight but everytime she did she only felt worse than before
As days turned into weeks and weeks turned into months
She was becoming more and more miserable
She tried to seek help but no one understood
They told her she'll get through it, she was a strong person
Her sadness will just go away, she just had to override them with happy thoughts
But all her actions were just in vain
As time went by she felt like she had no reason anymore
To keep on fighting, To keep on moving, To keep on surviving
She was in too much unexplainable pain
She had no more sense of self
She had no more reason to live
One day she decided she had enough
She slit her wrists and her arms on the tub
Dying was the least painful part
Because it meant freedom
It meant the suffering was going to stop.
