"We are very good at preparing to live, but not very good at living. We know how to sacrifice ten years for a diploma, and we are willing to work very hard to get a job, a car, a house, and so on. But we have difficulty remembering that we are alive in the present moment, the only moment there is for us to be alive."
Monday is the most common day to kill yourself, whereas Saturday is the least popular. The idea that most suicides take place over thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year’s Eve is a myth. Most suicides happen during the springtime. The thinking is this: people expect the winter months to be more depressing; so when cheerful summer appears, and things have not gotten better, they feel a greater sense of despair, and thus take their own lives.
