I hope I'm not hijacking this thread.

I was thinking a little more about this and about my friends who have killed themselves and I realised they would not be nearly so significant to me if they had just faded out of my life.

I find myself looking back over their lives and interpreting their various characteristics in view of the way their lives ended.
One was always able to leave.
Two of them had beautiful manners.
All were really bright.
All of them gave it more than enough thought.

It's more than natural to find this very painful, though I don't find it in myself to say that they made the wrong decision; or that they made the right one.

I certainly miss them now in a way I would not if they had not killed themselves, though I'm not sure how much sense that makes.
It is a long time ago now and I find it a comfort to remember them.
But it's always a worry (eg I have children), and perhaps a reminder to us all to take care of ourselves and each other as well as we can.
