Listen if a life full of heroin, fine dining, and worldwide travel can’t help someone with suicidal thoughts then I think that’s it. There is no cure. All these happy people can stop pretending like they care about mental health by sharing the suicide prevention hotline and we can just get over the fact that sometimes people feel sad and sometimes they feel so sad for so long they do some permanent shit to themselves and their family’s.
Obviously be nice to people and don’t be a dick but bottom line let’s all stop pretending to care about mental illness and depression over the internet when we all know that not one of us gives a shit about it in real life. We don’t know how to see the signals we don’t know when someone is suffering or going through a tough day/Week/month/year/etc. we don’t know shit and we keep living our lives selfishly, which isn’t a bad thing. Everybody lives selfishly, it just is what it is. Life. Don’t look too deep into it.
Now I see I’m coming off like a dick so let me of course say RIP to the late great legend of food and travel Anthony Bourdain. Perhaps the saddest part of this whole thing is that he left behind an 11 year old daughter.
He kicked a heroin addiction and led a thought to be incredible life full of great entertainment. He was a fucking hell of a story teller. He owned 5star restaurants, starred in a dope TV show, ate great food and traveled to great lands.
Now admittedly I haven’t always been a big Anthony Bourdain guy, got into him very recently actually maybe last summer and binged a couple seasons here and there. So read into this little piece however you will. It’s a sad day for the fans, it’s a sad day for his family.
The people that never knew him, we can move on without having to pretend mourn over the internet it’s cool.
RIP. Here’s a couple good clips…
