Understanding Depression/ Suicide

A friend of a friend of a friend's husband recently committed suicide. As I was looking at her Facebook posts someone commented, "I don't understand how someone would take there own life knowing that they have a beautiful family such as this!"

This person (and many, many others) do not understand depression. I love how someone else loving commented after this person, "Yes, it boggles the mind when we look at deep depression from the standpoint of happiness, stability, and decent mental health. Depression and sucidial thought turn our logic and minds away from the own positives in your life, every good thing seems a curse, every blessing can seem a burden... No one can judge the thoughts of someone in that deep state..."

How perfectly said!
