That’s All

Sunday, August 19th, 2012

Dear Bloggary,

Wow. This had been a busy, yet uneventful day, until this evening.

Jenny Lawson, AKA “The Bloggess” had an anonymous comment to her blog today from a desperate person threatening to commit suicide. Jenny asked for anyone who could, to offer a kind word to this person. The response has been overwhelming. I am so proud of my “Lawsbian” friends (Fans of Jenny Lawson) for stepping up and offering help. These people are such supportive and kind individuals. I hope “Anonymous” realizes that people care, that suicide is not the answer and, seeks help. We may never know.

I don’t have anything light-hearted or funny to write tonight, Dear Bloggary, as depression is serious. It lies and tells you things that aren’t true. And it is especially evil when you see no light at the end of the tunnel.

My hope is that everyone is kind to their fellow human being, as we never know what someone is going through. One kind word could save a life.

That’s all I really have to say tonight, Dear Bloggary.

Yours,

Shannon

    Jenny Lawson has done more to bring awareness to depression and anxiety then everyone else combined over the last 20 years. I pray that Anon realizes that she/he is not alone. For anyone out there considering ending their lives, remember that depression is a fucking lier, and there are people who care about you.
