Every single day I wake up in the morning, and I wonder if this is some kind of amazing dream that’s gonna end all of a sudden. And, you know, I’m gonna wake up and be somewhere else.

"Post-mortem testing, which included an autopsy and toxicological analysis, found that Mr. Monteith, aged 31, died of a mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol."
im sorry but this kinda makes me mad i mean i understand the guy had a ton of addictions and problems with these things but today Talia died and she had no say in that at all. death wasn’t het fault. he fucked around with this stuff knowing the end result could be death. this little girl couldn’t really do anything about it. idk i feel like this puts everything in perspective for me
You can’t really “fuck around” with an addiction you’ve had since you were in junior high. Cory could not simply stop what he was doing; addiction does not work like that. It is impossible to just one day say “hey, I’m gonna stop doing drugs now!” if you’re addicted to them. It takes years of hard work and recovery, which is exactly what Cory had recently started doing. This man just lost his life, and you think his death is somehow justified because of his addiction?
Yes, it’s very sad about Talia, but we should never, under any circumstances, compare deaths of all things. Death is death. It’s hard, it’s sad, and no one deserves it. No matter if you are a 13 year old girl struggling with cancer or a 31 year old man struggling with addiction.
I am not trying to be rude to you or make you feel bad because that’s not what anyone should be doing right now. I’m just trying to tell you that judging someone on the personal struggles that they’ve been dealing with since they were young, is not right. Cory was trying so hard to get better. He cared, he tried, and he unfortunately did not get the chance to fully recover. Having slip-ups and relapses are all a part of beating addiction, and unfortunately, this slip-up cost Cory his life. We shouldn’t be shaming a person who was really trying. We should be celebrating the fact that he, unlike so many others, did try.
Cory was a great man. Talia was a great girl. We lost two beautiful people, and it’s horrible that we did. We need to focus on the good and the beauty that they brought into people’s lives; not the negatives or the mistakes.
Rebloging for that comment ^
you guys i just laugh-cried so hard
i was staring at an article that said “the late cory monteith” in disbelief because .. no. how is that even an expression that applies to him ..
and my friend goes “what, you thought he’d actually fucking be on time for something now that he’s passed? of course he’s late, he probably waited til god was actually calling his name to even bother getting dressed”
