Every time there’s a suicide in the news, the Courage Experts appear, explaining that taking your own life—especially if you have a family—is cowardly.
These people have something in common: They haven’t experienced major depression, and don’t care to make the effort to grasp what it’s like.
Like Ziegler, they see suicide as “selfish,” a decision reached through a self-interested calculus of pleasure and pain, with no consideration given to loved ones left behind.
You’d have to have personally been trapped and felt flames to really understand a terror way beyond falling.
Resisting that, persevering, excelling, creating art when you feel that way, like Wallace did?
