On the surface, it might seem there’s little connection between “meaning and awareness” and suicide. But if you take a step back in time, before the suicide, it makes perfect sense that a person struggling with addiction, depression and suicidal tendencies WOULD seek meaning and awareness.

Kind of like a drowning man reaching for something that might save himself. And maybe it works, and maybe it doesn’t, but it makes sense when viewed from the pocket of time before he ended his life.
