Interesting perspective. Mine is somewhat different. Here’s what I just posted on another thread (I’m repeating myself.) We were discussing slow suicide, that is wholly approved by the yawning, indifferent society (listen to Eleanor Rigby, which explains it sufficiently well), versus a quick suicide. Here’s my famous quote:
Those who do it the quick method dont deserve our condemnation. It is not they who are selfish (as if the dead could be selfish!), it is we, poor things (selfish), who blame the suicides for hurting our precious feelings, when it was ultimately we who failed them!
We are all sinners, all selfish...differing only in degree, manifesting in ways as diverse as our fingerprints.
These situations are not cut and dried...I use the analogy of the many fibers and strands braided together to form the rope of one who has committed suicide by hanging.
Medicaiton or lack thereof is a fiber. So is each relationship, so is each self-perceived (or actual) failure. There may be a final trigger but that is still only one of many fibers.
