> So, I think that suicide can be harder on the survivors because sometimes you feel that you could have helped to prevent their death.
An added note..I definitely believe that people have unendurable lives and I understand that as much as I can. One of my friends killed himself over a $10,000 debt. I spent years wondering why he didn't come to us about it. I finally gave it up because values obviously played a huge part in it. I don't believe that he would have killed himself, had he not had that debt. I had a very good sense of him.
