Rest in Peace

Your pain has vanished.
Nothing will hurt you again.
Rest in peace, my Love.


Yep, I admit it.  I am a Glee-addict.  It’s enjoyable, sweet, and a lot of times tackles pretty tough subjects.  It’s one of my guilty pleasures that I allow myself.  I wasn’t prepared for this week’s episode, though.  In fact, I’m still watching it as I type this, to try and relieve some of the pressure I’m feeling by watching.

One of the minor characters was being teased about being gay; so he attempted suicide by hanging himself.  His Dad found him in time, though.

The episode has shown some of the emotions, guilt, ect. felt by those who know him.   Will talked about how EVERYONE has something that feels like the end of the world to them at some point.  He asked everyone to talk about something they were looking forward to, and each person went around saying something they looked forward to in the future.

It’s really hard for me to watch, and bringing up so many emotions that I keep thinking I have started to overcome.  The “why’s?”  The “what-ifs”; the guilt and the pain.

Earlier in the evening, I had also run across a story of one of the actor’s from Seinfield had attempted suicide by gunshot.  He survived. That brought up another feeling I sometimes have.  An almost jealous feeling -“Why couldn’t *my fiance* have survived like so-and so”?

So many emotions.  This post is all over the place; without much of a focus – but it’s just one of those moments where all of my emotions are spilling over and too much to hold in.
