Today I was having a conversation with a friend of mine and we got on the subject of depression and suicide.
Now both my friend and I have had struggles with drugs, depression and life in general, but we both dealt with our issues in our own way. Luckily we both are still alive. However we both have friends who have not been so lucky.
We got on the topic of suicide after depression gets to be to much. We discussed our friends and how they must of felt before killing themselves. We talked about how Robin Williams must of felt as well.
After a long interesting conversation he says something that left me thinking…..he tells me:
“A lot of people are quick to call someone selfish when they commit suicide but I think those people are the real selfish ones. They don’t stop to think about the demons those people fight on a daily basis. I don’t agree with suicide but I understand what they go thru.”
Hours later I’m still thinking about what he said.
What do u think?
P.s. How was your day?
