Today, a girl who I see everyday at work, who's always the most chipper person in the office, committed suicide. MMT

Wow. That's terrible. Why on earth did she do it?

often the ones who commit suicide seem very calm and peaceful.

it does make you think, doesn't it?

Its a sad thing, those in dire need of assistance end up getting themselves in a position that they don't want those around them to worry and try to take everything on themselves... if left to its own devices it can lead to suicide... I feel sorry for her and those who knew her

this is really sad.......even i think that the ones who seem calm and peaceful actually have alot of sorrow hidden in them..........

Thats how it goes. You can never tell what's going on inside a person.

Sometimes i'm scared the only reason I never thought about suicide was because I always had at least one friend who was threatening to do it and i spent so much time talking them out of it i always had the image of what it would do to those i love stuck in my mind.

People are great at acting, unfortunately.

After giving so much out for so long, she probably had none left. Makes me worry about a girl I know

I can relate to this. When I was depressed and suicidal, I was good at keeping a friendly face. No one knew anything was wrong. This lady could have been "authentically" chipper with her co-workers, but when she was away her thoughts could have eaten away at her. I have heard we "introverts" internalize more, and sometimes dwell too much. When I have those thoughts now, I do not tell anyone because I do not want them to feel liable if I do take my life. I would say we all need something that "wakes" us up in the morning.

Yeah, a goal and some fucking weed.

the lowest people are the ones who hide behind a mask, and that causes a lot of stress which leads to.... well...

A friend of mine recently committed suicide, he hid how he was feeling well, he always seemed happy, he had more friends than ever, a job he enjoyed. It is amazing how well people can hide things, in his final week he spent extra time with his mom and two brothers, if only he told them in this time.
