I really wanted to talk about this Blue Whale app for a while now. For those of you who don’t know what the hell this game is, I’ll explain. This is basically a computer game and I have no idea how you can even find it and to be honest, I don’t even want to know. What happens is, that you register on this game and you are given a “curator”, who’s mission is to FUCKING KILL YOU. So, how does this work? There are fifty missions or levels or whatever the hell you wanna call it, at the end of which you die. These missions include cutting yourself throughout the whole game under 30 times, it also includes watching scary psychedelic videos and listening to creepy music. In some of those creepy missions curator even tells you to wake up at 4:20 and go to the highest building you can find, or go to the nearest rails etc. Also from mission 30 to mission 49 what you do is you basically wake up at 4:20 and listen to the scary music and watch psychedelic videos that curator sends you. The last mission (number 50) is to jump off a high place and commit suicide.
Another important thing to mention is, that you can’t just stop playing in the middle of the game. Things are complicated. At the very beginning curator tells you, that there is no way back. So what does that mean: “no way back?!” The curator somehow hacks your personal info and blackmails you if you quit the game.
Yeah, I know… THIS IS FUCKING TERRIBLE!!!
The saddest thing about this is, that this game has unofficially killed 130 teenagers. Yes, TEENAGERS.
Teens get absorbed in this kind of stuff very easily. Even though a teen has to be more suicidal than others in order for him/her to download this kind of game and “WIN IT”, horrible results can be prevented.
Do you remember yourself as a teenager? What was the meaning of your life back then? Just think for a sec. The only thing that mattered, were your friends and your family, right? Because you didn’t have a career or a serious love or anything like that. The only serious values were friends and family. (I understand, that this can be not true for many of you but still, it’s legit for most people.) Now imagine being a teen with no friends and no family. This basically means: no life meaning or no value.
So, what this statement has to do with blue whale victims?
More and more parents these days give their kids way too much freedom. I’m not trying to say, that they need to lock them in a dungeon and watch them 24/7. What I want to say is, that they need to have more quality time with their kids. Lots of parents will just give a smartphone or ipad or laptop to their kids to “get rid of them” for a while. Maybe they are too lazy to play with their kids or they get annoyed…. Whatever… When teens lack attention from their family, they start looking for alternatives and what happens then? BAM! They find a curator and obey him in order to find at least some kind of life goal.
The same thing goes to friends. If a teen doesn’t have any friends, he/she is trying to find someone who will understand them and with whom they’ll share their feelings. And what happens then?…You guessed it….Curator.
Why is this necessarily connected to friend and parents.
I do not want to insult anybody at this point, but I’m going to say everything straight. WHAT KIND OF A FRIEND OR A PARENT DO YOU HAVE TO BE NOT TO NOTICE THAT A PERSON WAKES UP AT 4:20 EVERY DAY, SNEAKS OUT OF A HOUSE, LISTENS TO FUCK KNOWS WHAT AND CUTS HIMSELF FUCKING 3O TIMES?!?!?!?!!?
Besides, lets not forget about psychology. I cannot even imagine what kind of music or a video the curator sends to those teens. This changes a person mentally and they become darker, more depressed and their mind gets fucked up!
AGAIN, how the hell does nobody notice that?!
Enough of screaming and swearing. Lets get to the serious stuff.
Parents, please respect your children. Go to the park with them. Talk to them, play with them. Share your experience and listen to their opinions. Hug your children, kiss them, tell them, that their life matters. It matters to you… Every life is precious. Don’t just avoid a person you CREATED. Depression is the worst thing that can happen to a teenager. It can be avoided by daily contact and showing love. Don’t lock your child in a room with a computer all day just to avoid talking to them…
Friends, I know, that you might not like that one strange kid in class who has weird interests and hobbies. Just because someone is different, doesn’t mean that that person is bad or unacceptable. It can actually mean the opposite thing. Maybe that one person needs the most support from others and maybe by bulling or laughing at that person you are basically writing a death sentence…
Whoever you are, a parent, a friend or even that one strange kid in class, don’t forget, that love and justice always wins, no matter what. There is nothing in this universe, that can be cured by suicide. Nobody can convince you, that your life doesn’t matter.
That psycho, who created this game and those curators are not the main problem. They have their own issues and their own fucked up brain. They will hopefully burn in hell for eternity after doing all that… The main problem lies inside of us. If we don’t share and accept love, then we are sentenced to death. Sad fact is, that, if the game was unpopular, nobody would even try to find it and play it. The problem is, that people seek for this kinds of games and stuff themselves because they don’t have anything else…
Love your children, love your friends, and do it unconditionally. Even if you don’t get anything in return, your “inner me”, your soul, you aura or whatever you think there is, stays bright and clean and there is no blue whale on this planet that can take that away from you or from a person you give love to…
