My bother committed suicide

For absolutely no reason that anyone can think of my brother ended his life. He had a really happy marriage and 2 beautiful girls that he adored, no money problems and lived in a beautiful home… i just dont understand why? It doesn’t make sense

It is extremely difficult what you and your entirely family is going through, but there are some answers you are never gonna get in life.

Nobody really knows what a person is going through or feeling. He must have been an absolute expert at hiding whatever was making him sad. No matter what our lives look like from the outside, we all have our secrets and something had got so bad, he felt this was the only way out. Like the previous post says, you will probably never find the answer. It is so sad that he was unable to share what was worrying him to such an extent, but he obviously did have his own reason and this wouldn’t have come out of the blue.
I have been close to doing the same, and to everyone else, my life is also perfect. Family, house, holidays, no money worries, the whole shebang. But I lost someone who meant the world to me and in the beginning I could see no way out. Nobody would have known why. I do send my absolute sympathies.
