If you want your loved-ones to live happy lives, then live for their happiness, even if it isn't causing you happiness. Suicide notes like this one don't seem to be about ending the unhappiness of loved ones but ending their own unhappiness, and that is selfish. Don't kill yourself lying about your motives. If you insist on doing so, be honest about why you did.
I've never read this before. Although I am interested in it, I do feel a little like I have intruded on something too personal--too personal for his still living wife--I doubt that the now dead Kurt cares.
Why the hell am I stumbling so much suicide shit today? Not fun! :P
lovelikegravity....they read this letter at his vigil. He wanted his fans to see this letter so stfu.
I've read it before when I was in my teenage Nirvana-worshipping stage, but now this just seems too voyeuristic. This is too personal, we shouldn't be reading this.
Kurt Cobain is a peice of shit that deserved NONE of the love and adoration that his fans gave him. All of his rants are full of self-pity, self centered whining about issues that every person must deal with and conquer in life.
He claims that he loved his daughter but all he loved was himself, and obviously in the most unhealthy way possible.
He should burn in hell for what he did to his daughter. People like him disgust me.
Great musician, though.
You know, long as he's been gone, this is the first time I've come across any copy of this. Heard of it, sure, but never seen it. I hold not the writ in reverence as I do the frame of mind of the man who wrote it; I find you wanting.
I've not the needs-set of a narcisscist, perhaps more a martyr, or a samaritan. I'd rather spend myself fixing someone.
I do feel intrusive too, but I still read it. Sigh.
Handling success more difficult than earning it.
