Chester Bennington Hung Himself This Morning.
<hr> 

## <center> I was not actually a Linkin' Park fan ever, even in my youth but the details of this death are so tragic that I find myself depressed.</center>

Chester Bennington and Chris Cornell were very close friends and today would be Chris Cornell's birthday and is also the day Chester Bennington chose to take his own life by hanging. I definitely feel the two were connected but Chester had struggled with wanting to kill himself in the past which he said was a result of being abused by an older man as a child. He struggled with addiction like most other adults that were abused as children. This is absolutely tragic and heartbreaking. 

I myself was abused as a kid, struggle with addiction, and had my best friend die tragically so I have a huge amount of empathy for what he was living through. It breaks me into pieces when someone with a similar battle loses and winds up dead. The only way they saw out of their suffering. Chester Bennington was only 41 years old. 

Most people would say he is selfish for leaving behind a wife and 6 kids but they clearly have never been pushed to that place. I have and I can  tell you that no amount of loved ones can make it go away. The voice in your head will convince you that nobody loves you or that they'd be better of without you. The feeling of sorrow and wanting to die overpower everything else. I nearly successfully killed myself just a few months ago because I couldn't take the chronic pain I am dealing with and when I was at that place my friends, my cat, none of it mattered. I can't fully explain but it's just impossible to muster up any amount of caring once you are pushed to the point of wanting to be dead. 

I am not trying to make this post about me I am just hoping I can make people have a  bit more empathy when talking about people who have committed suicide. It's the sort of thing where if you haven't been there you just can't get it. 

### <center> My heart goes out to his family, friends, and fans.</center>

Thank you for sharing these thoughts. My Mom and 2 aunts (her sisters) committed suicide. I was 36 when she died. I agree that if you don't live it, don't judge it... I know my Mom loved me...she just could not do it anymore.
