I am still finding the loss of Chester Bennington extremely painful. I will confess, I have not been a consistently loyal fan all these years, but from 12 to around 16, Linkin Park was my world, and I can still sing, word for word, pretty much every one of his songs.
As you may know, I’m not a huge fan of social media, Here’s an example as to why: Chester Bennington was found dead in his home of a suspected suicide. His whole career he has been open and honest with his struggles with depression and addiction. He sang a song about it that still touches the entire nation to this very day. A friend of mine (who has social media) let me know the news as I was visiting her home. She read allowed a “meme” that people are sharing and laugh at that read “He tried so hard and got so far but I guess in the end nothing really mattered.” If this was you, please don’t read my blog. Nothing about this is funny.
Disgusting, This world makes me sick.
I, myself suffer from depression. I have lost people close to me from depression and addiction. Mental illness is the most tangible thing there is in this universe. To see people, be so disrespectful I have very limited words about the situation. It just says so much about who they really are. Seeing things like this is why I refuse to interact with people on social media. People have forgotten how to love – it’s not that hard. This man felt so bad that he felt the only way out was to end his own life. God willing, no one should ever have to go through that. My heart is broken for his family and friends.
You are not good people, not nice people, not happy people.
Chester’s story really hits home to me at this very point in my life. I can not even begin to imagine how Talinda must feel. I would be broken into so many smashed up pieces I don’t know if I would be able to pick them up at all put them back together. It really makes me think If I lost the one person I love most in this world to a battle I couldn’t help him fight It would kill me. My condolences to her.
Have you ever just had one of those months where things weren’t turning out like you planned? The hasn’t been one of my good months. I’ve been slowly meditating my way through it. Since I heard the news of this tragic event yesterday it’s been nothing but staying in bed, pizza and girlfriends guide for divorce. I just can’t bring myself to believe this. I can’t believe how much it relates to my life at this very moment.
Knowing there are some things you just can’t do for the one person you love more than anything is one of the worst feelings in this world.
Rest in peace sweet angel – we will miss you, we will miss you.
