Leo Tolstoy once said that “all happy families are alike, while each unhappy family is unhappy in its own way.” These words ring true for the victims of suicide, as suicide is just not related to any single problem or situation. Rather, it’s a complex problem that, most of the time, leaves few clues as to why a certain person decided to take his own life. Sometimes these reasons are clear, and many other times they leaves more questions than answers.

Any one suicide is a tragedy, but a celebrity suicide breaks our hearts. After all, all their stories are astonishing, as they achieved fame, fortune, and respect of people who want to be just like them. And yet, it does not seem to be enough, as they were still so depressed that, despite their celebrity statuses, they still committed suicide.

Still, all happy families are alike, meaning that no happy person ever committed a suicide. As such, happiness is still the number one goal we should all aspire towards even in suicide prevention. And if ever we feel unhappy, we should remember that there is always a solution to our negative feelings and we should never let them get so bad that we consider the unthinkable. In the end, happiness is possible for virtually every individual on the planet and we only need access to right information to save lives and make our life into a wonderful adventure we all wish it to be.
