Giving Up: Suicide

In this episode our intrepid podcasters continue to tackle difficult subjects in a awkward and hopefully endearing manner. While there is laughter, this episode of The Art Of Giving Up touches on a very serious subject.

There are very few subjects on this planet that can draw a line in the sand like bodily autonomy. The right to do with your body and your life are yours, and no one can or should be able to take that from you. Suicide as a right, the ability to end your life when you choose, is controversial. Why would anyone want to stop living, to end the beauty that is life?

Unfortunately for some of us, life is not easy. The appeal of an afterlife or void can seem like blessed relief. Taking your life however should not be the first option. The reality of death is that unlike the possibility of life, there is no taking it back. While a choice that is up to YOU to make I implore you; if you feel the need to end your life, please reach out to a friend or family member. If there are regional resources please take advantage of them.

We need to remove the stigma surrounding suicide and self-harm.

You are Not Alone.
