People like to judge, Finn, especially in the “he/she had it all” category. Hasn’t our world become nothing but materialistic, in every tiny aspect? Where everything can be measured and estimated by…how much you have? How much you ARE seems not to be THAT important anymore… Everything, your success, your happiness, your level of self-fulfillment, all of it can be easily described by how much you have. And turning it all down in a blink of an eye is considered a blasphemy, isn’t it?

My friend killed himself too. And none of us could predict it. None of could foresee it. None of us could detect any change in his behavior at all. Apparently we didn’t try hard enough. We weren’t his friends enough…

I firmly believe that every suicide can be prevented – on one condition – that at this very crucial moment this person isn’t alone. Because it’s usually a moment – it’s all that it takes. People who want to commit a suicide may write goodbye letters and what not but I think they are somehow convinced that it’s not real and that nothing ‘final’ will really happen till it actually does… I’m sure that if there was somebody with them they’d just shrug, look back and maybe even laugh…till the next time.

It is very sad when people take their own life. It is very sad that Gary Speed killed himself. On many levels. My heart goes out to his family, especially to his kids.
