Other People's Thoughts
Sometimes notes like these do more harm than good. Some people choose to keep them, others destroy them. I’m told the worst is when you feel like you could have stopped him had you only got the note in time.

My brother wrote a note to his girlfriend the day he killed himself. The only thing we know it said was “You will never see me again”. We did not need to know more.
There is nothing you could have done, he was obviously determined. He did care about you enough to say goodbye, I wish I could say the same. Suicide hurts. I am sorry.

My aunt didn’t leave a note when she killed herself, years on my family still ask ‘why?’
I’m the only one who knows she sent me a text saying goodbye, when ever I’m reminded of it it rips me up inside, I think, it might’ve been better if she’d left nothing at all.
