You should tell all your friends to read the astonishing classic work on suicide ‘The Savage God’. Masterful survey of suicide in literature, but most amazing of all is the final chapter, his big Reveal of his own suicide attempt. And he ends with the most amazing line in all the reams of keystrokes ever written on the subject of suicide, basically:
“Will I ever try again? No. I’m no longer optimistic enough.”
Think about it.
