When I think about my friend Tyler who committed suicide in Jan., I struggle with so many emotions. I miss him and I am sad. I see the pain he causes his family by being gone and I’m mad. He had everything going for him, and yet the only thing that calms me is knowing that he was so mentally ill that he couldn’t see how good life was for him. I spent time with his family this weekend, and I hate seeing them suffer. I don’t know why people commit suicide. It truly is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. And no matter the pain you’re in, if you commit suicide, you cause a lifetime of pain for your loved ones.
