The urge to understand.

Understanding suicide.

Trying to understand what happens when a friend decides to end their life may be futile, but I find reading about it, although distressing, strangely cathartic.

The psychology of suicide, the numerous methods, the prevalence of mental health issues, philosophical treaties, all help to give a picture of why it happened. An imperfect picture, like trying to find your way in a thick fog. Or through red, tear soaked eyes.
