    It's too bad of course.

    Perception is a lost thought process that can make life so much easier.
    It's really not a thought process that is lost, but a difference in the perceptive faculty of an individual, which appears to be facilitated by some neurotransmitter functional changes and chemical balance abnormalities. In my usual state of mind, you'd never have a hint that I can be inclined toward serious depression or any other mood disorder, but when I have been in periods of depression, they have been relatively severe, and not understandable to my mind, even though it's happening in my own body. In my case, it hasn't been brought on by bad life experiences per se, but by an overload of stressors within a relatively short time frame of a few weeks or so. It doesn't even have to be "bad stress", just an overload of stressful factors.
    "God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."

    Too many people on this planet anyway so if someone can't handle it and wants to check out early then that's fine with me.

    wow. so sad. I've never gotten "suicide", been through some pretty bad times and never thought about doing it. Maybe if I had been caught molesting a kid and was facing decades of abuse in prison, maybe.
    Maybe if you had been caught? Hmm, Freudian slip? lol

    just saying that is the only thing I can think of that would make ME consider suicide....
    Now I really have to wonder.

    It's not uncommon for child actors who grow up being adored and getting all that attention to suffer extreme depression when they become adults and are no longer getting all the attention they once had. Hollywood is notorious for using people when they're young and then throwing them away like garbage when they get older.

    except this guy had not been thrown away. He was starring in a prime time show.

    I know the feeling of wanting to go. For me the tipping point was almost when my wife left and took the kids. In my mind, my life was over, at least the life I had constructed for myself. And I was right - it was over. Now I'm trying to figure out what kind of new life I'm going to re-construct.

    I'm not always sure I'll be able to keep from doing anything. I'm OK now, but I just have this gut feeling that someday...well, someday I simply won't win that battle.

    some of us are born with some seriously self destructive wiring. it's almost as difficult to put into words as it would be to describe the color blue to a blind person. my guess is that the risk lowers with each decade. teen to age 30 is the absolute most dangerous period.

    Not that this had anything to do with it, but apparently, he played a roll in which his character committed suicide....

    I don't get why anyone thinks this, or any suicide, is a tragedy. If someone doesn't want to live anymore, why should they be forced to, so long as it's their own choice in the matter?
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Because in many cases the decision is the result of flawed thinking.

    In your opinion, of course. One less person on this overcrowded planet is hardly a big deal in the scheme of things. If they want to die, let them.
