Question of the Day


How do I handle a sudden suicide?

Dear Mike, I just found out that my daughter's dad committed suicide. We have been divorced for years, yet we were good friends. I was probably the only person he trusted. He was detoxing from methadone and very sick and emotionally fragile. I talked with him almost every night on the phone recently to support him in this. The suicide seems sudden, yet his life has never been happy. The tragedy is that my daughter, who is 23, has not seen her dad in 5 years, and always wanted a dad. Yet, they were never able to truly be together. A miss for both of them. Lots of grief right now. Any thoughts you have in this would be appreciated.

Answer


I'm sorry to learn what you're going through. My uncle committed suicide a few years ago. Everyone was devastated.

Don't blame yourself, your daughter's father made the decision he wanted to make. He did what he wanted to do. He's already been greeted with a truly glorious homecoming, and though he may wish he hadn't given up hope, he will at least be shown other ways his challenges could have been dealt with, and when he's ready, he will joyfully try again. There is only love and acceptance from the Universe for the choices we make - even suicide.

This is an unending adventure for all of us. Death is truly the greatest illusion; don't believe in it. He is as alive now, as he was within his physical body. He is among friends, and he now understands what he misunderstood here. He is surely with you, and undoubtedly wishes fervently that those he left behind remain more hopeful for their lives than he was willing to be with his.
