Death of a celebrity~*~

Thursday, August 22, 2013

This week I heard the very sad news about a reality tv lady's death by suicide. She was 29 years old, absolutely gorgeous, sweet, sensitive etc. Her name was Gia Allemand.

This is Gia, so beautiful but gone way before her time.
And before you think is Shell into women, the answer is no. I love people,I'm attracted to men and I am heterosexual all the way. But even as women we know and can see when another women is gifted with looks. And yes Gia was beautiful to look at and had that personality that just draws people to her. I first saw her on the batchelor, and then on the batchelor pad two. Gia decided the deviousness and nastiness from many of the contestants wasn't for her on the batchelor pad. She basically was too sensitive and sweet to be as sneaky as they needed to be on the batchelor pad. So she left it.
She recently commited suicide and I found it strange in a way that it really upset me so much. I have been thinking about it all week. I mean I love people and of course I would think how sad it was. But I was really saddened by it. This lady had her whole life left to live and she made the decision to end her life. And that is just another reminder that life is short and we don't know how long we have here. Or if we will see another day and if our loved ones will be around tomorrow or the next day like they are now. None of us have immunity from the "final curtain" and our exit from this world-to where ever and whatever we go to. We don't know what tomorrow will hold. Whether the world will have blown up and scattered into pieces across the sea or what. We have right now, and so does everyone here at this moment. What we have is "this moment". Which is a good reason to let our loved ones know how we feel. Don't hold a grudge against people you care about. Say "I'm sorry" and move on, don't fester and avoid people you love. You might never see them again. Forgive, forgive and accept that we all make mistakes.
Rest in peace Gia

    This was so incredibly sad. Depression so often goes undiagnosed and/or ignored as in "she'll get better". My heart goes out to her family!!

    We never know what really goes on in people's lives. We see the outside, glitz, glamour, bright lights ... but not the inner turmoil and despair. So sad. Just saw a Rizzoli & Isles episode where they dedicated the episode to Lee Thompson Young who apparently killed himself.

    Thanks for the comments. Suicide is such a sad and unnecessary way to go. But there is no way of telling sometimes where someones mindset is at. And I don't think that it has to be just depression to make someone that way inclined. I tried as a teenager and I don't think I suffered depression back then. And I got involved in a differcult situation some years back where I felt that I totally understood how a person would be in a position to attempt/commit suicide, because I felt that way myself. That was being locked in a police cell. No, I am not a crim guys!! I got myself in trouble over some drunken fight and was locked for hours in the cells. I think everyone needs people to love them, care about them and know that they are wanted. They need a person or people to be able to open up to, and to be there for them. Some people don't know where to turn. And I think one thing a suicidal person can fell is how bad life is at that moment. They don't always see that things will change , as they are stuck in a difficult situation. They can't see past that particular moment in time. I believe every life is important. It is so precious and it is short enough.

    Also goes to show that being skinny and beautiful does not ensure happiness.

    It's hard for me to hear about people committing suicide. Like you, I see these people as loving, beautiful, meaningful people. It reminds me to always reach out to others - even if it is just to give a smile or a hello. You don't really know how long people are here, what they are going through, if you could help them. It's good to know you are a caring, special person.

    Yes, I thought this was very sad. So hard to believe you would feel so bad that you want to end your life. So sad that she did not get help. RIP Gia! emoticon

    What a shame. You are right she is a beautiful young lady. I always find when I hear of a suicide it makes me reflect. Sometimes it doesn't make sense, sometimes it does. There is nothing really rational about suicide, pure emotion. emoticon

    You never know what the people around you are going through. Too bad she couldn't (or didn't) get the help she needed.

    Anytime anyone takes their own life you wonder what was so bad they decided to make the ultimate decision. You have to be really sad to do it~
