Despair Suicide Despair is 1 year old! And this means that I have reached one of the two milestones I set myself at the beginning. The first one was to reach 1 year, the second one to reach 100 strips. The first one is achieved, so I guess I'll have to head for the second one. And after that? Hmmm, no idea, we'll see.|
And yes, problems happen, they happen all the time. There is no good without bad, no light without shadow, no happiness without sadness. That's how it is, so I guess we have to accept that. And sometimes we must simply try to forget about a problem and move on. There are so many problems out there waiting for us, why being stuck at one of them? That's also why the guy up there doesn't give a specific reason for his despair, in the birthday strip I wanted to be more general. Therefore he's also using all kind off different things to try killing himself. And I could finally do something I wanted to do for over half a year now: A close up of a tear with reflections on it. The green color stands of course for hope. And about the last panel: Well, it shows that sometimes we're persuading ourself to think that something is far worse than it is, and, besides it shows that this is a comic, my first webcomic.
