Wow, that took my silly story to a much darker place. Leave it to g-d'nd Valentine's Day to bring out the darkest memories.
Having that kinda guilt chained and thrown into a dark corner will grow a monster.
Remember, we absolutely cannot be responsible for what other people do... but I get the "what ifs." All I can say is that suicide, except when in
extreme circumstances like terminal illness, is the ultimate in selfishness. The person is taken away from hurt (as far as we know) but the people
left, especially those the act was aimed at, have to deal with the guilt through their lives IF they have a heart.
It doesn't affect the heartless... only the people who DON'T "deserve it."
I would guess that she would say to forget it, she was young and made a stupid, irrevocable gesture and even if you were daring her to do it, it's her
responsibility and I doubt you were a trained therapist... right?
Either way, talking about it to a trained therapist isn't a bad idea... kinda like a psychological purge. Also remember, people are crazy and it just
gets milder as we age... but never goes completely away.
And it wasn't your fault... even if you think it was. Edit: Which is exactly what Night said, except far more succinctly and more lovely a manner.
