“I just wanna lay here and let myself die…”

 

 

 

 

 

[The working introduction for my upcoming book]

 

 

 

If you’re reading this, then (odds are) you want kill yourself.

 

To which I say:

 

Good for you.

 

It’s about g☼ddamn time.

 

 

 

I mean, cheese n’ fucking rice, how long are you going to be the world’s punching bag?

 

How often are you going to seek approval and validation for every little decision you make?

 

How long are you going to keep working at that loathsome job you hate that offers no prospect of advancement, let alone satisfaction?

 

Not to mention the effort to which you go to please/placate your parents.

 

(You’re way too old for that, by the way.)

 

Seriously.

 

Just end it.

 

 

 

Oh, wait a second.

 

Do you think I mean you should force the cessation of all of your involuntary, bodily, life-support functions?

 

No, no, no.

 

It’s adorable (and laughable) that you’d think you’re getting out of this that easily.

 

But you’re not.

 

See, you’ve decided to throw your life away.

 

And I caught it.

 

So listen up…

    If this book is basically just a series of more fleshed-out posts then I’ll definitely be picking up a copy. It’s a nice change of pace from the really dense stuff I’ve been reading too much of lately.

  3. This, right here, is what a whole lotta Sunday messages should start like. Bring it!

  4. So freaking happy to see a post by you again! I was just thinking the other day that it had been ages since you posted.

    Great start.

  5. I already want to buy the book.

    Very Zen, Ace. Also… nice catch.

    One small thought re a change:

    “It’s adorable (and laughable) that you’d think we’re getting out of this that easily. But we’re not.”

    “We,” not “you.” No-one gets to escape that easily, so it’s objectively true. Also makes the turn from “I’m talking to you” to “I’m walking with you.” Which seems to be the common denominator of everyone who ever experienced Lemmy. And many who have encountered you. Let that shine.
