    Did you ever try to talk with him? Its no ones fault. But he must have felt so alone to do this

    I guess even family should take responsibility,becoz u never understood him...if u ppl would have understood...u could have taken him to psychiatrist and got treated him....nobody can do suicide in period of half an hour...unless he is very depressed

    As a therapist I can tell you that individuals who have a plan to commit suicide are typically happy right before they follow through with it : the reason is they know the pain is about to end for them. It's terrible...because there is no outward sign of being distraught. The days ..hours ....minutes leading up to the suicide are a relief for them. Just heartbreaking & unspeakable.

    In these overwhelming times sometimes I feel this void as nothing good can ever happen. It's very hard to come out of that void. Being a man from a middle class family there's a mountain of expectation from me. And sometimes I feel like I am failing them.

    My sister's husband too did commit suicide end of August, still we are looking for reason... don't know how to identify people when they are depressed... God would have shown us a way, so that we could have saved his life...

    As per my experience haveing fight with depression. The person who do suicide before it he done too much struggle to not do but one stage he tried not do but fail to stop himself. In this situation no one can help him except medication but medication also some time no results. Socity family affairs are the main cause of person go i such a situation

    Dear Rashi, as your words are very truthful and whatever pain Raghav felt, he ended by his side, but fact about this worlds and people are so mean. A few people behaved so badly and allow a person to live worst life. As a sensitive and Human being you can't change your approach and there only you came in fault. People are getting right to hurt you times without number. Result , though you are living your life but unwillingly. But for some other who are your near and dear ones for them you have to fight with people, may be you have to prove yourself right , which genuinely you are right. We have to work with great strength and have to shown courage like nothing,

    It's so sad but only that person knows how he or she feels at that moment. I know many a times when I wanted to end my life.. It is not easy to cope at times. Please understand these ppl are not cowards or selfish they just can't handle life.

    I’m literally in tears 😭 I lost my dad at a very young age he committed killed himself it’s very hard to come in terms of what happened and how you could have changed it’s very sensitive part of my life . It’s great that you’re a bigger person to help others who need help and show them positive impact of life.
