What’s selfish, is asking someone to put aside their pain, so you don’t have to deal with yours. Because only after they’re gone, do you even discover your pain. But this “selfish” person, whom you hate so much for taking the “easy way out” has been witness to their own pain for far much longer then anyone could’ve known. For these kinds of people, the pain is constant, 24/7, which makes one day, feel like a year, and a year feel like a lifetime. Think about it, to hate yourself SO much, that you have to die, and you think this is selfish? What’s selfish, is asking someone to live with themselves, when they have nothing left but a hollowed shell, a body, but their mind- that left a long time ago, and to ask someone to “live” with that kind of pain, because as everyone says, “it does get better,” are the selfish ones, because they were dead long ago, and now you want them back? You cannot ask someone to “stick around” for your own sake, because if you really, TRULY knew their pain, you would never ask them to stay.
