suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

some things are never the answer.
i just found out that a friend of mine killed himself. he got caught up in a bad situation and i guess he just felt like he had no other way out. it's a shame. a waste of a life. he was a really nice guy. always smiling and with a nice word for everyone. i guess that there are just some things that you don't expect to happen. picturing the world without someone who was once so full of life seems so sad. and my heart aches for him, and how lonely he must have felt to do something so drastic. my heart breaks for his family, who i'm sure would have supported him through the tough time... and i'm sad to think that this is something that happens every day. there are ugly things in the world that we joke about. maybe it's our way to put them at arm's distance; or to pretend that they won't touch our world. and then when it does, it makes you stop and think about just how real this life is. how precious. how beautiful. and how fragile. and regardless of the situation, i hope that when people think about him, they remember what a nice guy he was. suddenly those afn commercial's don't seem so funny.

I'm so sorry for the loss of your friend. I've dealt with depression since I was a teenager, so I can understand how someone can seem perfectly fine on the outside but falling apart on the inside.
