Suicide isn't the way. Don't let the world dictate who you are, what you are worth or what you should be doing. When you're young, its hard to battle the insecurities, the self doubt, the friendships, bullying and breakups. Its a learning process that sucks! It gets better.
Your youth is the very difficult process of finding yourself.
Your adult years are spent enjoying what you found...
Hey Crow. hope you see this. before i was finished with high school i lost 15 of my friends. due to suicide drinking and driving and other causes. growing up as an unwanted child my parents weren't present at all in anything i did. i studied engineering at NMMU South Africa, learned a lot about cars, loved it found my passion. that saved me later on. i did ok. mother said i should leave it to study business but i refused. they threw me out. my father was other side the country but he sent me away. i had no where to go. so i was homeless for a while. moving from friend to friend until they get tired and threw me out. i got my first real job at a liquor store. i did good and got promoted fast. i moved to the capital city in an attempt to finish my studies. didn't work. long story short i got a job at a photo copy place. spent 5 years there. meanwhile honing my skills as automotive tech i became really good with cars and bikes. my mother passed away eventually and lost my best friend a month later. even though two people hate each other it still hits home. then i found bitconnect. met a great girl made a ton of cash life was awesome. then the crash. lost all my savings in a day. the girl i spent two years with bailed to the UK i was pretty much out of it. was my first attempt then. i survived and realized that i dont want to die at all. so i made a conscious decision. just when i got my stuff together i was in a bike crash.. my brand new R6 was wrecked, this was February this year. everything caved in. everyone bailed. it was the end. but somehow i decided im not gona take this. my leg was pretty messed up. i defaulted back to bar tendering for a while. now i re launched by business and its doing better than ever. i chose my own hours and call my own shots. this isnt even 90% of what all happened but i was over the edge and survived. just like Kevin hines. Jocko willink and Eric thomas have been a great help too. im working on a project and one day ill have a stage just like you where i can tell people to dig in it will get better. i am so glad i didnt give in because i know im going somewhere and despite all odds im still standing. dyslexic unwanted homeless child about to make it big. but i realised money is just a tool nothing more nor nothing less the only value in life are the people close to your heart. people need to understand that. you are right it does get better. now today i can help so many others who are now where i were. the phrase it takes one to know one comes to mind. the facebook groups have been a huge help to pull me through these dark days. thank you for this video. i hope more people see this. its shocking how many people struggle with depression and suicidal and mental health issues... its staggering. each vid each quote each idea. it helps. and if you are out there reading this. you have your own story. dont give the pen to someone else. just like skipping your favorite song half way into the track just so you cant give in. there is more to this world than you know. its coming be ready keep fighting i dont want to see you give in
This happened to a 15 yr old kid here in the U.K. and it struck a chord with me as we have a 9yr old daughter who is very emotionally affected by negativity. All this has made us communicate to her the importance to share her anxieties with us and to instil this from an early age. P.S. crow your coins..
I also lost my brother(Legend) to suicide over his girlfriend braking up, if he only knew the pain he left behind to his family and many friends.The first 5 years after was the worst time ever in my life, luckily I got a son that sort of replaced that pain for me.Just hold on, life will get better!
Sorry for your loss, and your sons loss. To be honest, these dark thoughts are hard to escape sometimes, especially when you live with them daily. It's so completely and utterly exhausting. But yes... it does get better. Then worse. Then better. Then worse. The cycle continues. It's all temporary, and that's the most important thing to remember. But you are 100% right. We are responsible for our own change, our own lives, our own destiny. Thank you.
Thanks for sharing Crow. This a topic that often times gets swept under the rug and I applaud you for shedding light on it. I lost my best friend to it so it is unfortunately something I live with. I want to let you know that there are some great resources out there. The Samaritans is a non profit that has groups where suicide survivors meet and just talk. It sounds terrible and depressing and sometimes it is but it truly helps folks dealing with a loss. I am sure they have resources where you live. As a few folks mentioned mental illness like bipolar disorder is often the root cause and not something that can be easily shaken off. It is hard for people who do not have it to understand but we should all keep it in mind when we think about suicide. Kepp up the good work Crow!
Depression is a serious illness, nothing to ever be ashamed of. People who don't have it, sometimes don't understand the struggle. My heart goes out to your family and the family and friends of the boy. Thank you for your heartfelt words. It hurts to see you like this.
Man I soooo feel for you and your situation. Thank u for sharing this. This topic needs to be out there. My son too, was on the edge a few years ago, we got through it, but it is never easy.
Thanks for sharing.
This is always so sad to hear, I had a buddy who killed himself in high school. Life gets so much better after high school even though it can feel like the weight and pressure of the world is too much, nothing is worth taking your own life for.
RIP Tom F.
you’re a brave dude to address this topic. We the community feel for for your Son and yourself to witness this tragedy. The life we all live is sooo hard to get thru unscathed, praise the hope you’ve shared today.
You call yourself an ogre, but you're all man. I love your vulnerable and heartfelt message and I dig your humanity. It does get better, you just gotta make it through the darkness, because beauty awaits you. Mucho love to you, Jason.
Mr Jason, your points were made very truthfully.
Life does get better. There are always ups and downs in our lives since days of our birth and some of us still within the womb of our moms.
Life has many emotions that are placed within us, and sometimes, we have no real understanding how to deal with some of them.
Many of my years I have had to succumb to family and friends who believed there was only one way out. One in particular whom was more close to me than most would have in a lifetime.
I too have had the thoughts you described at your darkest times in life.
As you, I made my way out, for the better. Even now as times are a bit harder, I have my beautiful wife and children to keep me stonger than as was my youth.
Life does get better, even with the ups and downs. Day by day.
Keep your message today strong and unforgotten daily my friend.
Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a blessed gift.
Every person's life, no matter what age, is a daily gift.
God bless Mr Jason...
Crow!!! This was one of the greatest videos ever. I understand, we all understand...life can be frustrating and hard sometimes. Much love and respect goes out to you and your family. Sad to hear about your son's friend. Stay real and Honest...and keep up the great work..
You never cease to amaze me bro! Suicide is a very very real problem in the world and even in this crypto space.
I was hacked for a pretty substantial amount of money and that shit ate at me pretty bad.
I can only imagine what others have gone through with the ponzi schemes and hacks. It’s a terrible feeling but you’re right about it getting better.
I’m a long ways away from recouping the money I lost but following your channel has helped educate me and turn me on to some good trades.
Keep crushing it Crow, you are appreciated by many!
I shot myself...barely missed my eye....I have half a tongue. 14 hour surgery... and it does get that bad. And generally it is months of depression(I hate this word)/bad times stacked on with uncanny bad things that all happen at once. For me a lot of it came from my Dad and the bible my the way other people treated me. I give talks occasionally ..the best thing for me is to practice doing "bad stuff" ...like eat a giant steak or buy something I can't afford..subtle ways to stick it to life you know.. smoking..maybe not drinking unless you are with friends. Jump out of a airplane .but with a parachute ..and people always say you could just talk to me... but most of the things that cause it for me can't really be expressed and it would take like an hour to explain them and people stop really listening after like 5 minutes anyways and then sit there trying to stay engaged because they think you're going to off yourself if they take a break or something. Just be honest with people that want to talk to you or are thinking about suicide. Honesty is the next best thing you can give someone that is really having a hard time aside from fixing their life and most of the time people can't do that for someone else. It's the shadow thoughts that creep in that cause the problems..."she thinks I'm stupid" "he really just wants it for himself"... your subconscious knows when people are lieing and from that it can create all kinds of scenarios. Too bad most people won't answer yes to questions like "do you think I'm stupid" if it's true. Anyways good talk brother you did a good job.
God Bless ya Crow! May the Lord comfort that family & your step son in this tragic time of loss! You had me balling! So sad! This is one of the main reasons I love your show because you post very informative info & your a very down to earth giant who seems to really love & want to help people! Keep up the great work & please tell your step son that we are so sorry for the loss of his friend!
I was there too at 15 from abuse and neglect. I had a gun to my head crying, same kind of scenario. I didn't really want to die I just wanted it to stop. I don't know why I didn't pull the trigger but I'm glad I didn't. I married at 16 to get out and then things changed. It does get better.
Hello Jason, I'm sorry that your family have to go thru that. I know what it feels like I thought about ending it myself a few time. Everyone keep strong...I'm in a shit time at this moment but I know is temporary.
My stepson committed suicide 15 years ago at the age of 14. It all involved a young girl and bullying. It was one of the saddest days in my life. It's truly not the answer, and it hurts very deeply the ones you leave behind. You just have to suck it up, live your life and things will get better as you develop a better positive attitude.
Bless you mate. I lost my partner to suicide and i doubt i will ever get over it. Not a day goes by when i don't think of her. As you said, "we/you just have to push through it". It gets easier but it's always there. My heart goes out to the boys girlfriend. I can imagine how she feels but no one is to blame. Unfortunately we can't control another's actions that's why listening, talking and understanding our kids is so important. Problems come and go but death is so final. My advise would be to anyone with these kind of thoughts, talk to someone, don't feel a wus, we all get down, just talk to someone and let it off your chest. It definitely helps. Take care
break up at that early age could be devastating that is why parents gotta monitor that process as it unfolds and be there ... I would have called a professional escort to baby sit him in lingerie and suck him off till he is anew again for at least a week, now with that experience he is set for life, I mean that's an estreme measure to take but as a parent if I see my kid going down fast then i have to bring him up even faster...that shit is crushingly hard on a soft bone... I wouldn't blame it on the kid...at all! Parenting people!! help these young bones be men and women and don't ignore them like they are dumb and stupid...these are nuclear bombs in emotions and feelings you got to watch them!!
The cold reality is no amount of advice or reasoning is good enough for the affected individual. The only thing that truly matters is Joyfulness and play. We are all too busy telling each other to just get through it like it is some kind of military exercise. Nature works differently. Cryptocurrency can set us free. Give it away! We are on the verge of a new paradigm on the planet. The current form of capitalism is so oppressive to our biology that suicide makes more sense. Time for society to change.
Sad video but touching so sad tho 14 years old man words can describe what to say I've been couple positions in my life that thought you know what f*** it, but light is at the end of the tunnel and it does get better hold on and be strong crow your coins and enjoy your life love your videos man truly
Idk - i think the idea of having to make a lot of choices and be 'independent" doesn't sit well with these kids. it adds to the fear and uncertainty. these kids today lack a sense of protection and nurturing, also lack boundaries, core values, and a sense of support/unity (tribe). lack a stable, unconditional mother figure and an alpha father figure. i think the future scares the shit out of them. and - they're growing up WAY too fast!!
also can't leave out blue light from electronics, and the studies that show a correlation between the rise in smartphone use and the rise in suicide and depression amoung children!!
maybe your charity should be something closer to home? supporting a local crisis center - funding a summer camp program, or something through a church that offers children guidance and support? *i'm very sorry for your sons loss!* xox
Male suicides are a very real problem. Watch out for boys and men. Don't be a rescuer or enabler, just be a brother where you can. You might save a life.
Suicide is permanent solution to temporary problem. Unfortunately substance abuse plays a major role as well and its tricky as hell to overcome.
Crow, I love your channel and you as a person, but I want to say that I hope you understand that people who commit suicide are neither weak nor hopeless as you call them. It is not as easy as just "getting yourself together" (I am not saying you said it was easy btw). Childhood neglect and/or abuse has detrimental effects on an individual and societal level and can manifest itself in many ways, one of them being lack of emotional coping mechanisms to problems. If your "base" and sense of self is underdeveloped or askew, events such as break-ups can hit hard and trigger other unresolved emotional issues. It is not easy to dictate tomorrow if you lack the emotional tools. It is like being asked to build a treehouse without a hammer. Most of the people who commit suicide don't really do it because they want to die, but rather because they can't bear to live. Big hug to you Jason.
Ur a good man Crow. Watched my kids suffer through a half a dozen suicides in highschool. As a parent its heart wrenching. I try not to even imagine how the famillies feel. Or how that child must have been suffering. You dont want to give the kids trouble for anything. My wife is afraid to raise her voice at them. Thanks for this my friend. Mb it will change someones path. We can only hope. Love and light.
Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem, we’ve all had that thought cross our minds going through tough times growing up. I lost my little brother to suicide just over a year ago, so this hits home. Thanks for sharing crow.
My 13 year old daughter came to me yesterday wanting to watch the Netflix series 13 Reasons Why. A show about a ten girl and her "reasons" for committing suicide. We had a long discussion about why I didn't want her to watch it. Why giving life to those kinds of thoughts is counter productive to her life, and why there are no "reasons" to give up on life. We talked about some real life stuff yesterday. I have 5 adult children and 2 still at home. Kids today are exposed to so much more than they were just 10 years ago. Life is harder now than ever for young people. I hated having to have that talk with my girl, but I believe it was a necessary one. I'm sorry for the loss of your son's friend. I understand the shock and pain written all over your face in this video. Parenting sure isn't for sissies.
So true! Guys spend time with your kids, not money. Like Les Brown says it's possible. No matter the situation it's possible that you can do better. You can become better. Hardtimes come but they come to pass. They don't come to stay.
I hope you're not contemplating anything bad my friend. As hard and hopeless as things can feel sometimes, even when you feel you have nobody that cares or understands, I assure you, we do. Its often these most difficult times in our lives that become the building blocks for tomorrows greatness. Dont rob yourself of that potential. Learn from it and become stronger. I wish you the best.
The miners are interested in finding a nonce which will create a hash with certain characteristics. Lastly, they have to find a random value that they included in the header, which makes the computed hash over that header a value below a particular target. In other words, they do not have to agree to change the protocol. Though there are a few gold diggers attempting to fill their pockets and certain projects that aren`t viable and shouldn`t be encouraged in any way. For users running a complete node, it is a fairly painless procedure to upgrade the software to the newest version. The process of locating a new block to extend the blockchain is known as mining. Proof-of-Work systems utilize cryptographic hashing algorithms to create the action of mining a block a complicated computation. Our software is totally incompatible with altcoins. Changes and modifications to how that it works need to be approved by consensus and every CPU gets a vote. To start with, it`s essential to realize that hardware wallet users control entirely their private keys. Whether you`re bullish or bearish on Bitcoin Gold, you ought not lose your coins as a result of careless mistakes! On the 1 hand, it may result in making a coin that solves all the pending issues. There`s no currency or digital asset named Bitcoin Core. Bitcoin Cash increases the range of transactions that may be processed per block. You could send any quantity of money, any place in the Earth, almost at no cost. You`ve made some great money already on the market, but you want more. For a wealthy individual, BTC`s price premium may be viewed as a plus. For someone without lots of money, BCH`s low price may look like a great deal for Bitcoin. If you have some concerns about the worth of Bitcoin after all forks, you need to be ready for a drop. The distinction is that not all of these suffer the chain split. The primary problem is Bitcoin imposes a hard limit on the magnitude of a block, the location where transaction information becomes stored. The end result is many straightforward wallets, called SPV wallets and very commonly found on your phone, will be quite confused about which chain is Bitcoin. In Bitcoin, the most important reason is known as the network effect.
