A note to anyone who has no experiance in feeling suicidal. It always shocks me when some people say they have never felt this way. For me, it is summed up as this:
Just because someone takes their life before you are prepared to lose them does not mean that they went before their time. Neither does it mean that they were in any way selfish. It simply means that they are not suffering anymore and the pain you are feeling now may never even scratch the surface of what they had to endure for probably longer than you will ever know. They are at peace now. It is not selfish to end one’s suffering. It is selfish to insist one keep suffering when you have never felt the magnitude of their pain.
Lucky are the few who have never been close, courageous are the many who have pulled through and continue to endure, at peace are the ones who are gone.
