How someone reacts to the news/idea of a suicide is an interesting reflection on people’s personalities. To generalise, I’ve seen women get upset in a destructive sort of way and men act dismissive and express contempt.
For me, it’s as if I was reading a compelling novel only to find that somewhere half way through the book the pages went blank and we never got to find out what actually happened. Inspired by this short story.
One thought on “Abrupt endings”
Such a heartbreaking story. I think the general attitude of the dismissal of mental well-being is to blame as well!
