Since you claim to be so unselfish and successful in life and worth over a million, when are you going show some humanity and offer some assistance to this person who sounds pretty down on their luck? Or does being unselfish only apply to your family?

Can I ask the OP a question?
When you've felt at your lowest and attempted/considered suicide, do thoughts of your family cross your mind at all?
I ask this because when I have had low points in my life and thought to myself, if I ended it my problems will be over and no more worrying and what a complete relief it would be, then thoughts of not seeing and being with my family again is more painful than the thought of having to struggle through life. I couldn't bear to put them through that devastation again. Cos i know what that feels like.
I don't think suicidal folk consider the people around them and what they will go through afterwards, they are too full of their own misery and unable to see past it.
Suicides always think no-one cares and no-one loves them and no-one will notice if they're dead, but you are soooo wrong.
Your suicide will affect your family's lives FOREVER, because they love you whether you believe it or not.
