    Former Disney star Lee Thompson Young commits suicide at 29

    Former Disney star Lee Thompson Young commits suicide at 29 - NBC News.com

    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.

    Has LTY been accused of child molestation, or are you just free associating?

    Are you saying he was facing decades in prison? I didn't see that in the linked article

    just saying that is the only thing I can think of that would make ME consider suicide. The concept baffles me. How ****ty must your life be to consider killing yourself?

    Artist are a moody bunch, whether its acting, singing painting it doesn't matter.

    It's too bad of course.

    Perception is a lost thought process that can make life so much easier.

    I thought that might be the case.

    And a person can have all the outward signs of a successful and happy life, yet still be depressed

    It's not that life is actually ****ty - it's that they perceive it to be intolerable.

    It's how one views things that's the difference.

    Yeah, unfortunately, you can't really "get it" until you've been there, and hopefully, once you get to that point, you can still rationalize enough not to do it. It's a very dark place to be, indeed.

    I'm not wired that way either. It baffles me as well. People are different though....some see a bad situation in life and think that's the end of the road.

    We don't know jack from the article, as nothing was said about any motive. The OP did say that they could think of reasons that would "justify" taking their own life but certainly did not attribute those same reasons to LTY. Apparenty LTY made the decision to end his own life so one can safely assume that LTY thought he had reason to do so.
