I just found out today at work, that a guy we all used to work with committed suicide last night. I can't help but wonder why? He was separated from his wife and kids but he had landed himself a good job and he seemed to be doing well. What goes through somebody's head when they are contemplating suicide? Do they think of the ones they leave behind, that have no answers? Don't get me wrong, I think it very sad that he is gone but I also think it is a selfish, cowardly act. Especially when there is so much help available to people these days.

wow, thats no good at all? Did i know this one? If yes PM me. i have known a few people that have done this and i cannot begin to wonder what depths they must fall too, to feel so issolated and alone. Yes i do think that it is selfish and a cowards way out, im sure that his kids will wonder why they never got to really know their dad and will always question why. Its just not fair.

I thought about it many times, but I never attempted it, though I was close at some occasions, I just did not have the right pills. I am not sure if you can call it a selfish act. A selfish person is somebody who only thinks about him/herself. Though, at those moments you really hate yourself and you just have one thing in mind: to disappear. I agree that it is a cowardly act though, it would have been better for the persons who did it to face their problems.
