My ex boyfriend committed suicide almost 5 years ago. He was still a close friend and I honestly never got over him. I loved him very much. I still do and I miss him more than I ever imagined I could. He was incredibly intelligent, successful, kind, and funny. I know people always say things like "I never thought it could happen to him/her" but it truly fits his situation. We were all so shocked, so enveloped in grief that it was almost impossible to even comprehend that he was gone... And he chose to leave us in the way he did. It feels like yesterday and 100 years all in one. I think about him multiple times per day. I have cried every single day since it happened. I am terrified that I will never get over losing him. I am terrified I will never be in love like I was with him. I am terrified no one will love me like he did, but I also think that he couldn't have loved me (and his family or friends) enough to stay with us. For the last 2 nights I have dreamt about him and I wake up so sad because then I remember he's gone. I am overwhelmed with grief. I used to have such a strong faith in God and I'm angry that he took that away from me. As someone who has experienced major depression (and a suicide attempt as a teenager) I can understand the loneliness and helplessness that he must of felt. But I'm angry he didn't ask for help. I'm angry he was so selfish but I'm so sad knowing his last moments were spent so alone and believing that suicide was his only option. It's been almost 5 years and I still can't move forward. I don't even know where to start.

what about when we caused it or should have prevented it?
