On suicide - Page 9

post #121 of 153
While I understand the sentiment and I suppose it's true in some technical sense, the idea that suicide is a selfish act is incredibly simplistic. It does not speak to the state of mind of a depressed person and discourages real understanding of their thought processes.

Someone taking that decision ,especially if it is premeditated, is on an incredible degree of mental suffering..

We cannot just judge through a rational behavioural lens or simplepreconceived idea /mental stereotypes because we haven't walked their life paths.

It is always a tragedy..

A friend apparently shot himself in the head last month. Initial reports were that it was due to financial issues, then marital issues but everyone that knew him can't believe he actually did it. So a private investigation has been opened. I hope they find otherwise, even tho it wont bring him back. I miss my dude.

Maybe his wife had marital problems and decided to act on it...

Sorry for your friend..

Found out a friend of my best friend committed suicide this past weekend. He saw his wife off in the morning. He stayed behind. Drank tons of liquor. Walked into the backyard. Pulled the trigger. My friend is taking it extremely hard. Feelings of guilt, that he thought he could have done something to prevent it.

Wow, that sucks man, sorry to hear that.

Not much to be said that isn't useless platitudes, in my experience the best thing you can do is keep your buddy company. Rough times.

Thank you Blackhood. And you are right, just keeping him company. Letting him talk. Letting him not talk.
