        lol
        They wont. Most people that comment after my articles dont have the attention span to go 1200 words. At least 5 of the words they likely have to google and they cant wait to post something shitty. It is funnier because I dont read even one comment anymore or respond but they feel heard and that is important. lol

          A great outlook on death - and more importantly on life. I hope it inspires people to get more out of their everyday lives.

          The idiots that stop at ''..is it really sad that he passed?'' Will probably never get any quality life lessons out of that article and instead just find anther reason to bitch and whine. lol

            I feel sad when someone young passes because it means that was another person who didn't get to live a long life. They had less opportunity to live a full and fulfilling life, and I think for any person, that's sad. Personally, I think his situation is sad because he regretted (or seemed to) his choices that most likely led to his early death.

            More generally,

            No man is an island, entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main. If a clod be washed away by the sea, Europe is the less, as well as if a promontory were, as well as if a manor of thy friend's or of thine own were: any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind, and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee.

              I think his passing is sad as well for the reasons Sammi mentioned BUT I agree 100%


              that we attach "knowing" to celebrity lives when really we have ZERO clue about them and their life and their lifestyle....

                  I won't argue my point or perspective because you have the right to feel sad for him - anyone has that right. My point to the article is that you (and I) don't know if he had regrets but you assume he did. If you knew he had no regrets would you still be sad for him?

                  Maybe he had regrets and maybe he hated his life and was a douche to people. In that case, it WOULD be sad. The point to the article really wasn't even about Mike Matarazzo but more the point that people should be left to live how they see fit instead of being judged by HOW they lived and HOW or WHY they died.

                  I don't read the comments section after my articles but I can only imagine that most people didn't get the point of the article. If you ever take what I write as face value, the point will be missed.

                    This is actually the typical response I would expect from my article if the person reading it gets my point. Sure, there is nothing wrong with being sad for the guy's situation but in getting my bigger point, like I stated previously, my point wasn't about Mike but about how we view a person that has passed and how we judge them based on how they died, how they lived, etc., instead of finding comfort in the fact that people should live the way they want to and fuck everyone else.

                      The article is on point Skip. He had the courage follow the path where his heart was, now the journey is elsewhere.

                      Looking forward to working with you in the future still.

                        Absolutely, I would. He died young, and had the potential for much more living. Regardless of how he lived his life and if he had regrets, I think that's sad for him. I wasn't assuming he had regrets, I was reading the quotes where people said he greatly regretted his abuse of AAS, which almost certainly caused his heart issue(s) and death. But if he didn't regret anything he did, I would still feel sad for him, yes.

                        I don't think feeling sad means I have judged him. I feel sad when anyone dies, because it is a loss. I feel the loss is somewhat increased in his case because his actions probably directly caused his early death. And the icing on the cake is that he knew that and regretted it. I'm not judging him on how he lived or died; I couldn't give a damn. But I am sad that his life was cut short.

                            Like I said: I am not sad for anyone that lives a life they were happy living. I guess we just disagree.

                            Do keep in mind, though, that you do not know if his actions caused or contributed to his death or not. You are going by what you have heard, second hand. Again, though, you are entitled to that opinion and to feel sad if that is how you feel.
