I'm not sure I understand why others are so surprised when someone they is suicidal makes an attempt & they didn't even try to help that person. They get mad at that person who did try to reach out & seek help. I just don't get it at all. They turn their backs, that person can't take the pain anymore, and others get mad at that person for trying to find some relief. Those other people aren't the ones having to carry the pain, and they treat that person like a burden.
