Monday, Monday

The reality of the situation is hitting home. Someone in our family was hurt enough to end his own life. How do you make sense of it?

OMG - I am so over blogger!

I typed a huge response and it ate it. What I tried to say is... you can't make sense of it and apparently neither could your cousin. Most times they believe they are making things better for everyone else and no one will miss them... and the fact remains that they are missed and it is never better.

Hugss and prayers sugar.

You don't make sense of it. You let time pass and you just get through it. {{{hugs}}}

No sense will ever be made of it. You and your family are in my thoughts. Please take care of you.

I don't think you can ever make sense of it, or learn to accept the fact. It is horrible to be close to someone who commits suicide and it will hurt for a long time.

I'm using to making one wisecrack after another. But this post & your last have left me speechless.

it takes years to grieve that loss of a family member - the process is worse when the death is violent and inexplicable- i am so sorry for you - and for his family, will pray for all concerned

As so many have said, one cannot make sense of a senseless situation. The mind is a vast expanse filled with demons and angels; sometimes one voice speaks louder than others, blotting out sense and reason, until the unimaginable seems like a valid option...
Prayers to you and your family, dear one.

I've had two suicides close to me. Both young men who used guns. There is very little comfort to be had when someone you care about takes their own life. It is assaultive to those who are left behind, but I have learned that the survivors must accept that it was not meant to be that, that the one lost was in some place the rest of us simply cannot imagine, suffering in some way beyond our comprehension, or they would not have taken that path.

I'm sorry this has happened, WFW. My Wish for you is that you can help those around you to forgive him.

Echoing most of the other commenters, there is never a way to make any sense out of these acts. Here's hoping you are able to cope.

WFW, I wrote a comment but I guess with the problems Blogger had the other day it didn't post.

My heart goes out to you and your family. My stepbrother committed suicide in November 2002. You never really get over it but you go on just as you do with any close family member's death. I know I have/have had regrets over it...should I have done this or said that? The only thing I really know for sure is I could never put my children through what his went through and I try to believe that in his final moments God sheltered him. I rest in the words that God takes cares of those not in their right minds and I believe Walter lost his during that time...that's how I get through it and I pray for your family as well.

Suicide is the ultimate selfish act because it makes everyone feel guilty or "what could I have done?" types of questions unanswered.

There is just no excuse for it. Even agonizing physical pain is no excuse because there are medications for it.

I'm against all forms of suicide - including the nuts in Iraq who blow up themselves and innocent bystanders, including children.

We all know people who are suffering for whatever reason. We try to help as best we can but . . . we are not responsible for their actions.
