I don't know if this will trigger anyone, so I apologize in advance if it does. When I got to my uncle's this morning, he informed me that a friend of my cousin killed himself recently. Everyone was really shocked, but those who knew him had expected it somewhat, as he had tried a few times before. I felt sad for my cousin, because he had lost another friend through suicide several years ago. My uncle tried looking up the story online and couldn't find anything. That was strange, since he had supposedly done it in a public place. Well, my aunt sent a text saying the guy had faked it all. I just...I can't really wrap my head around this. Why would you fake your own death just to get attention? I couldn't imagine hurting anyone like that. I felt for him a bit, since clearly he needs help, but it also made me angry that he would do that. It made me think about my own suicidal feelings even more. One reason I haven't done it yet is because it would hurt those who care about me. But how will they know when he is really in trouble if he cries wolf like that? I just don't know what to think about all of this.
