This is truly an epidemic. I personally lost someone very close to me due to depression. He chose to take his own life. For years I blamed myself. Sometimes when I’m alone and happy, I find myself feeling guilty and thinking of him, and wishing that things were different. When someone really makes up their mind to end things, there is almost nothing we can do to stop them, they will just wait until we are not looking. Sometimes they wait for us to helplessly watch them slip away from us. The pain is never ending, the most important thing to remember is that it’s not your fault. If you know someone who is suffering from depression, urge them to seek help or bring help to them. Someday they will thank you for it and if not, at least you know you did everything you could. There are some things that we just don’t have the power to change.
