A moments reflection

I've hesitated before making this posting, but it's important and it gives me a way of letting out some sadness and shock.
Someone I know, not someone I can call a friend, but certainly a friend of friends of mine, took his own life yesterday morning. We don't know why, though the gossip and rumour mill is starting to crank its way into operation already.
I've put lots into this blog about how sad I am, and how hard life is, but today I'm thinking different thoughts.
This person had many of the things that I felt I didn't have and so what do these things mean - in fact what does anything mean?
Its easy to over play this, but it should cause everyone a little pause... it certainly has made me

The same 'things' can mean worlds of difference to different people.
There are people who will do anything for money, where I personally think (tho money is nice) it is not money that makes you happy.

I could go on and on - so I won't.

Sorry for your loss and that of your friends. If he didn't leave behind some kind of note, there will always be a gap in understanding, but, however sad, that's life. I know, sadly from own experiences.

Like Goddess, I'm sorry for your loss. However people take their lives for different reasons. Personally I feel it's an easy way out and leaves others behind in confusion and hurt.

It has made me pause.

"Things" don't mean anything, but people and feelings do. Many people do this from feeling they are burdensome on others. But I agree with EE, and the ones left, are the ones who must deal with the loss. My sincere sympathy to you and your friends, and warm hugz for your trying times.

Sorry for the loss of your friends friend.We always tend to think the grass is greener on the other side and how we percieve people but do we really know.
I disagree to take your own life must be one of the most difficult things to do,maybe felt it was there last resort.No one really knows.

Some times wish we could walk a day in some elses shoes maybe not is all rosy with tham as we think.
Chris must have been difficult for you to write.Take care.xx
