Since about 45 in my case. The prime directive has been met 4 times over, they are out of the house and on their own, the world certainly doesn't give a [expletive] about my political opinions. Time to die.


Joe, I am old ( I watched Kenny Boyer play ball) and you are young, C'mon man.

I'm just an old bum.

You are far more than that.

That might have sounded more dramatic than meant. I'll enjoy the grandkids (first in September!) and all that but as far as having ANY ambition, that fire is gone.

Somehow this suicide thread got darker.

It's never too late guys. Trite and cliche, sure, but holds. I quit a corporate job in my 30s and did improv for 6 years. Then I quit doing improv and started a restaurant in my late 30s. I'm in my 40s and planning my next career in which I hope to incorporate parts of my experience doing something different. At my 42nd bday party there were a bunch of restaurant and bar kids there in their 20s who insisted "speech! speech! speech!" and I told them simply: "Always take the risk in life. It's worth it. Don't worry, your intelligence, hard work, character and values will be the safety net that catches you when there's a snag, and it will bounce you right back up."

Go get 'em.

Love,

Tony Robbins

Isn't that kinda the philosophy that Bourdain adopted, though.

Is this an attempt to tie risk-taking with suicide?

No.

It feels like you're side-stepping suicide depression by recommending risk-taking. I'm not sure that's great advice.

I think he’s suggesting giving living the life you want to live a shot.

Sure.

That's got nothing to do with depression OR suicide though, I don't think.

Living the life you don’t want to live has nothing to do with depression?

Disagree

Edit to add: not the root or only cause but certainly can be a big factor
