    I’ve had some interesting thoughts.
    A friend once said that suicide is not just about yourself but that it causes suffering for family and friends left behind. The corollary of this is that there are people in one’s life that are glad that you are not dead, which is something for one to be glad about too. And one is glad that others are alive too, which is a motivator to help others be glad to be alive (compassion). And one is glad when others are glad to be alive which is appreciative joy (mudita).
    Lots to think about.
