I’ve wanted to put this up for months now, but I don’t know how to even begin to explain it.
This is a picture that someone took of me standing on the top of a car park, seconds from ending my life. The person that took this uploaded it to twitter with the caption ‘tense moment…’ and it was put in the paper the next day.
It really bothered me that this person took this, but did nothing to stop me. The last thing I wanted at that moment was to be saved, I just wanted to be dead, gone forever, away from the pain. Despite this, it really hurt me that someone could take a picture of me literally seconds from being dead, and act like it was okay. Luckily I was talked down by a woman who then took me for a coffee and comforted me while I cried for hours, but this person just stood, watching, doing nothing.
When I saw this it made me think, does anyone actually care? This person uploaded a photo of someone about to commit suicide to the Internet, probably for attention and retweets. I don’t particularly care for myself or how I feel, but the fact this person was so heartless and didn’t even care to call the police or even a member of staff in the car park just makes me so angry. I don’t understand how you can watch someone doing this to themselves and not even blink an eye.
I don’t really know where I’m going with this, but I just want to say that whoever took this is selfish and has no soul, and I hope whoever they are feels fucking ashamed of themselves.
