Jonghyun is my ultimate bias and I don’t know how to go on without him. Honestly call me over dramatic but everything hurts right now. I know bts is your blog but idk who else to turn to that’s as caring as you...I guess I’m in too much shock. Thank you for listening
it is not dramatic. this was a human who deserved better than what he felt and got. the system, the industry, the country let him and so many others down for not being responsible and acknowledging how serious and harmful mental health can become and letting it continue to be stigmatized, and pushed under the rug, as I though it does not exist. and even worse, looking down on and shaming those who do seek help. it is so stigmatized that people do not want to seek help because this information is put onto their resumes for employers or schools to see, it is seen as a sign of weakness and not a ‘stable’ person who should represent the company/school. so people do not seek the help they need, they are scared and suffer in silence
ignoring a problem does not solve it, it makes it worse and there’s clearly a reason why Korea has one of the largest suicide rates in the world
I felt these exact feelings a few months ago when news was coming out about top, only his friends, family, fans and most importantly, himself were lucky enough that he was able to be saved. and this is from two people who themselves have spoken about mental health and their own experiences with depression. yet here we are, as the list keeps growing bigger and bigger every year
it’s fucking disgusting.
