"Failure is the best teacher."
I saw this today and it made me feel things. In recent days and recent years several young people in my town have sadly felt they can’t live or cope with the cards life has dealt them and have chosen to end their lives. In their wake, a ripple effect takes place with those closest to them. They say things like “I should of been there, I didn’t try hard enough, I failed”
You were there. Trying is all you could have done. You did not fail them.
Someone who is depressed, an addict, has mental health issues, you cannot cure, nor did you cause it. Yes perhaps you could have created the most ideal, perfect living situation for this person to function in, but they still would not of been able to function within it. They are uncontrollable not matter how hard you try and there are no mistakes in trying.
I hope that all the people affected can support each other in coping. That is all you can do. If you can’t shake the feeling of failure or guilt, learn from it and get help, talk to someone, a friend, a doctor, please do not make this a domino effect because you can see clearly in this moment the destruction it causes.
Suicide is never the answer, its a permeant solution to a temporary problem.
