Suicide is the most difficult. And our society is often lonely, at least for me.
Imagine living to be very old, everything you knew having passed. And that can be the good life.
Most often my heart feels quite full of sadness, too full for comfort, and I tell myself this is normal, whatever that means.
I had friends kill themselves. They were so young too. I dunno. The standards of what is acceptable sadness are quite unrealistic, IMO. Like you kind of apologised or warned us about this being a downer about death. And it happens to all of us, every single one, but not today we think. And then suicide is different.
