Where do you think logic goes mentally when a person chooses to take their own life?
A work colleague chose to take her own life last week. This has left myself and colleagues totally devastated and shocked. She has left a 10 year old daughter…and I can’t imagine what she must be going through, especially as it is so close to Christmas.
My colleague appeared to be such a strong vibrant character, she had such a sense of presence when she was in the room…and appeared to be so confident, competent and basically ‘said it how it was’.
I understand that she was extremely stressed and was experiencing immense pressure at work. Where do you think her sense of logic went when she chose to take her own life?
When people take their own life’s do you think they experience ‘insanity’ in the moments running up to their decision?
I am not at all judging her decision…but I have 3 children, my youngest being 2 yrs old. I definitely have my ups and downs and experience frequent moments of ‘fight or flight’ but my children keep me ‘sane’ and no matter how bad things feel I have the believe that if changes need to be made we have to look to ourselves to make the changes.
So do you think people who choose to take their own life get to a point of ‘no return’ or that something happens physiologically in their brain?
