Looking at suicide from the point of view of the person committing the act
September 7, 2016

One of the most difficult beliefs for survivors of people who are successful in ending their life is that the act of suicide makes sense for them. It is a choice in the sense not of an “insane” person, but someone who is thinking clearly within their internal motivations and assessments of what is right for them. A suicide bomber may sometimes fit this; someone who is subject to daily pain, and medical hopelessness may fit into this; someone who has a deeply perceived self-analysis of meaninglessness, can also make a choice for death, that at some level of their soul, is a sane choice. Suicide may be something that may represent a pure, final moment of personal control and self-expression.
