“Wanting to die, is a sin”
Our English teacher read that line. I was in shock. I could hear people whispering and laughing. No one seemed to care. How could she say that? How could the author of the book write about that? How do they want people to admit that they have been wanting to die when they are being taught that it is a sin? Telling us that, would only make us wish we were dead already. We have already got the sin, haven’t we? Why wait around and collect more sins by thinking the way we do? Wanting to die isn’t a choice, it is forced upon us by our feelings, by our thoughts. I don’t know how I’ll be able to go back to class and sit there pretending to be fine as if everything is okay.
