What do you tell someone who is so hurt that she is ready to end it all. She feels that her kids and other family deserve better and so she is finished.

  • I would tell her that if she leaves her kids now, they will never be able to get over the hurt she will cause them. They won't be able to talk to her, or to understand what she was going through. They will just always have the feeling that she didn't love them enough to stick around and take care of them. I'm sorry if that sounds rough, but I can't think of anything more horrifying for a child than to have to deal with the idea that their parent chose death over them. Get her some serious help, please!

  • Oh that is so sad. No one should ever end their life. her family would feel awful of course kids need their mom. Also in a family where the parent commits suicide the children have a way higher chance of committing suicide. When life gets hard for them it is suddenly and option or solution to a problem. She needs to see a doctor and get help.
