What a great question Dave.
I dont care how many of people think people are weak for commiting suicide or even contimplating it.
We have never walked a mile in their shoe's ,so,,,,, we cannot judge them.
I have lost many friends to suicide.( drugs, depression, post natal depression, family issue's ect)
Yes,,,,,,, i had moments where i didn't understand my friends for making this decision , but there were other times when i did understand. I never
once have hated my friends for their choice, nore have i ever stopped loving them either. And i miss everyone of them. I think about them all the time
So I think that there are many many reasons that people experience during life's sometimes unhappy journey that could lead a person to feel that life
is not important anymore and by ending ones life might just stop all their heart ache and pain.
1) If they had a terminal illness. ( i have a friend that has a terminal illness and has talked this senario)
2) the loss of a loved one, family member or partner either through death or divorce ect.
3) suffering from a mental illness like Post Natal Depression, ect.
4)----------------------( insert your own thoughts here)
Heres why i thought my life wasn't worth living anymore.
I have just gone through a divorce and ive lost the beautiful little lady that was my life for 14 years. We were together nearly half our lives. She
was the only good in my world. She was the angel that helped me get of the streets, and showed me that there was a reason to life. She showed me what
love truely meant. She was the one that i thought that would be there always and would love me unconditionally forever even after death.
But i was wrong.
When she left, well,,,,, I ,,,,,,,,,,, not only contemplated ending it,,,,,,,, But,,,,,,,,, nearly succeded and for some unknown reason It didnt
happen, it should have,,, but didn't. And im glad now it didn't.
I was in a bad place in life and also in my head.
I was lucky, and after that i asked for help, and when i did, i got the help that i needed or who knows what might have been after.
Some people aren't lucky enough to get help, some people have to journey through life with no one to help or even care.
I now work security, mostly in pubs and clubs. Last week we had one of our locals ( patrons) he was drunk and upset, he was crying and told me and my
fellow work mates that he wanted to kill himself as he has no friends and no one that cared for him at all. We kept him there talking to him telling
him that people did and do care, we care. I didn't hate him for his thoughts, we contacted his family and they sent a friend to pick him up and take
care of him.
I hope they helped and i hope i see him this week or if not i really F%@ up.
So like i said there are many reasons why someone could contemplate it.
Please dont judge anyone does.
We haven't lived their life so how can we judge???
