What an attractive young woman. She appeared to have it all, but the ability to cope. Quite a flaw that led to her demise apparently.

Can't imagine why anyone would want to end their own life, no matter how bad the world seems or how bleak the problems of the day appear.

While it's a great way to look at it (with the normal mind), the problem doesn't seem so temporary when you're stuck in clinical depression. For the person whose depression has lasted weeks, months, or years...it seems like it is (and feels like it will be) forever.

Who said anything about depression? You don't know if she was depressed its only one general possibility and from the article not a very likely one. No one mentions her ever being depressed or seeming depressed any time recently. I agree that depression is a clinical illness and the term gets thrown around all the time when really people may be just really unhappy. People think if you've been unhappy for a long time you must be depressed but that's not so. Many people feel trapped by their lives, their choices or lack there of. They can be unhappy for years because their lives actually do suck. Not the same as depression.

Not saying that was the case here but the article mentions sadness at the death of a friend. I think being with an older man might say something. The sadness of the friends death, the fight with her lover, made her feel no one left loved her. Perhaps coupled with other worries about her life, her future, maybe she just felt overwhelmed, and yes, took a permanent solution for a temporary problem. None of us will every know.

The problems I had at 28 , a heartbreaking divorce and other heavy issues of the day, are things I can laugh about now or at least let go. The promise of a brighter day is there for everyone who lifts their head up. I feel for this poor girl whom I do not know at all. I had a very bad year at 28 as well...now a distant memory as my life is filled with people who truly love me, when you end it all you never know these people.

I think about opening a health club, day spa, or something that has to do with yoga, since I practice this in my spare time. It has trimmed me considerably and I'm much thinner than ten years ago. I think about Colorado or even Nevada because I would love the sunny skies, fewer rainy days, and just slower pace of life. I don't blame this girl for just snapping and ending it all, especially with what is happening in our world.
i am on the same boat as you, bro!

A young, pretty and fairly successful actress who had a lover and a loving family who decided to end her own life. Apparently no drugs were involved either...if indeed so, then really weird.
The only logical possibility is that she was mentally not OK.

Either way, I feel no sorrow or pity for those who end their own life. I feel/think nothing, good or bad.
