Hey, I hope your friend is okay.
"I don't understand how these people--people closer to me than anyone in my family, almost--can be so insensitive to the feelings of their friends,
they'd put their loved ones through this. This is unbearable. I can't stand seeing death anymore."
I understand that, and you absolutely have to do what's right for you, in that spending less time around them might be the tough choice that you may
need to make in order to make sure that YOU'RE okay. I completely understand and support that.
However, I will say this - suicide is a very complex thing, and people do it, or attempt it for many reasons. It comes off as selfish to the people
around them, or left behind (and maybe sometimes it is; and of course there are people who use this to manipulate other people), but in a lot of
cases, I would think most cases, the persons brain has stopped being their friend. It has stopped being rational. It has stopped being able to process
what the outcome will be to others. Sometimes it can seem (to them) that they are actually doing their loved ones a favour by ending the turmoil and
burden that they (may) perceive themselves to be. (Sure, they'll be upset and sad for awhile, but it can/may seem kinder to cut the process short,
than dragging it on for years.) Again, this is not rational.
Maybe do some research into it so you can understand where they are coming from, even if you choose to move out of their lives. Or not. But, I hope
you can forgive them, anyway. They are literally not in their right mind.
