Little, very little, of that is true of course but 'tis all I could think of.
(perhaps there is such a thing as too much music in a day. Lol)

The gist of the matter is this:
We all know someone who suicided. Do you wish they would have told you their plan beforehand? Said goodbye in person? So you would not wonder?

Serious replies appreciated and I wish you all a Happy 2021!

Hi and welcome. I haven't personally known a person who committed suicide. An old friend's older brother did when we were young, like 12 or 13 or so, and the brother was just around 25 I think. That's as close as I've been to such a tragedy, they were neighbors of mine, just a short walk between our houses.

Hello. Like the rolling stones title.

It usually seems like the people who are really serious dont give signs and leave clues.

Its always my hope anyone in need asks for help and let's their pain be known, it makes it so much harder on their loved ones if they dont.

A friend of mine, a cousin and a different cousin’s wife all committed suicide.
Nobody suspected anything.
They were all cheerful and ‘life of the party’ people.
Nobody suspected anything.

I often wonder what lay beneath the surface and what silent pain they were suffering.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

Never experienced anyone near me, I only have a suicidal friend but it’s better after getting good help. But I was once there when a person did it. I don’t want anyone to go through that.

So I always hope people try to seek help and talk. Because it can become better.

yes that is my conclusion. It would be cruel not to even if you think they would understand.
Thank you.

No Mam, I fear that is not always the case.
Thank you so much,

Sorry for last post don’t know what happened.
Ppl only tell someone as a cry for help, those who don’t, don’t want saving, unfortunately.

I, too, apologize as I thought I knew what you meant in your previous post. (When I answered, I mean.)

I am not sure the person does not want saving. It is more that every single avenue has been exhausted, I feel. One would never want to leave loved ones traumatized and totally freaked out so I kinda think I have answered my own question.
Again, thank you for posting.

I’m curious why you asked that question? No problem if you would rather not reply.
