People who take their own lives are in a lot of pain.
One's suicide affects us all.
Even this one about a lady none of us have
ever met is causing some of us to argue
over a cliche.
I have learned that there are as many opinions
about suicide as there are clovers in the field.
It's tragic no matter what you believe.
Especially during the grieving process, everything
that is said becomes sensitive and under question.
It seems to be all part of the stages of grief.
There's denial, anger, bargaining, depression and
of course the conclusion of acceptance.
It's not etched in stone and some people might
dwell and camp out on any one of those emotions.
It's okay. We are all just trying to understand from
our own perspective how others can end their
existence here on this planet, in this realm.
There are some who believe in an afterlife and
others who don't. None of that makes losing a loved
one any easier. It just seems like the person who
commits suicide has just dumped their internal
world of hurt on the heads of those who loved them.
I think we can all agree that suicide is not painless.
Yes, and not my place to try to understand 'why'. What is unfathomable to the outside world can seem so 'correct' to the depressed.
As always, an awful damned thing.
RIP L'Wren Scott
That's just really sad. I wish some kind of peace for those she left behind.
Money, fame, and success clearly don't guarantee peace of mind.
The first thing I hear many people say is, 'she had everything, and everything to live for'. They simply don't get that what happens in someone's head bears no relation to how great their life appears to everyone else.
Until you have stood on that ledge, don't judge.
I saw them (the Stones) on Saturday night. Really sorry for Mick right now, as well as for the whole monster that is the tour.
They were going to play in our town in WA tomorrow night. Cancelled, obviously.
Not cancelled but postponed - they'll be back when they can.
what they need now is ... time.
The Rolling Stones are deeply sorry and disappointed to announce the postponement of the rest of their 14 ON FIRE tour of Australia and New Zealand following the death of L’Wren Scott.
Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood wish to thank all of their fans for their support at this difficult time and hope that they will fully understand the reason for this announcement.
The Rolling Stones are planning to reschedule these postponed shows at a later date.
The postponed shows are:
Perth Arena – 19 March - postponed
Adelaide Oval – 22 March - postponed
Sydney Allphones Arena – 25 March - postponed
Melbourne Rod Laver Arena – 28 March - postponed
Macedon Ranges Hanging Rock – 30 March - postponed
Brisbane Entertainment Centre – 2 April - postponed
Auckland Mt Smart Stadium – 5 April - postponed
Australia/New Zealand promoters ask ticket holders to please hold on to their tickets until further notice. A new schedule of dates is presently being worked on and will be advised as soon as possible. Information will be made available via rollingstones.com and frontiertouring.com as soon as available.
it is a very deep thing, when you feel you can't even talk about it
Messages from Keith, Charlie and Ronnie
Keith, Charlie and Ronnie’s messages to fans on the postponement of the Australia/ New Zealand tour.
“No-one saw this coming…Mick’s always been my soul brother and we love him…we’re thick as thieves and we’re all feeling for the man…we really hate to disappoint our fans but we’ll see everyone really soon.”
“Needless to say we are all completely shocked but our first thought is to support Mick at this awful time. We intend to come back to Australia and New Zealand as soon as it proves possible.”
“This is such terrible news and right now the important thing is that we are all pulling together to offer Mick our support and help him through this sad time. Without a doubt we intend to be back out on that stage as soon as we can.”
Yes, no-one knows what's going on in anyone else's head. And, even apparently 'perfect' lives are not always what they may appear to be.
On a slightly different note, can you imagine all the work that's involved in the re-organisation of these shows? It'll be nightmare for the promoters! Hope everyone had enough insurance for such a situation........
Looks like Mick may have dumped her, but his publicist disputes that. She lived in one of those buildings with a "sky garage" elevator that parks your car up by the apartment. Left a message for her assistant to "come by" right before hanging herself, which the assistant did, only to be faced as soon as the door opened with Scott hanging there.
Sorry, but folks who do this get no sympathy from me - only their family and associates get my sympathy. Look at all the folks she's harmed.
She must have been ill, mentally ill.
You have no sympathy for the mentally ill?
Suicide is one of the undiagnosed byproduct of mental
illness we have globally. Even some people who
are getting help can't overcome the feelings
sometimes. Even certain meds can make one
I don't think L'Wren was looking for your sympathy anyway.
You can keep it.
JMHO, not looking to argue.
Have a good night.
