It is never easy to accept a suicide note, especially when it is written by someone whose presence has had an impact on so many people. Suicide in itself is considered a selfish act, especially because those who commit suicide will in most cases take the easier way out, leaving the rest to deal with their departure in whichever way they find best.
Suicide leaves a lot of unanswered questions, and those who are left behind never know what to do, or how to begin the healing process. One of the biggest questions that the bereaved are left with, is to wonder if there was something they could have done to prevent the individual from committing suicide, if there was something that they were doing wrong in their lives that pushed their loved ones to such drastic measures.
While we have a lot of time to think about all these questions, unfortunately suicide takes place so quickly. In a matter of seconds, someone might be gone, so fast that there is nothing you can do to even change their minds. The following are some suicide notes that were left behind by celebrities, with a touching parting shot.
10 Pennsylvania State Treasurer R. Budd Dwyer
9 Clara Blandick, American Actress
8 Leslie Cheung Kwok-wing
7 Kurt Cobain
6 Nancy Motes (Julia Roberts’ half-sister)
5 Aaron Hillel Swartz
4 Wendy O. Williams
3 George Eastman
2 Hart Crane
1 Robin Williams
There are reports that Robin Williams left a series of suicide notes, which perhaps might come to light sometime in the future. For someone as accomplished as he was in life, there was a lot of sadness all over the world when news broke out of his death. However, perhaps the person who felt this the worst was his daughter Zelda Rae, to whom he wished a happy birthday before he took his life. His final tweet: “#tbt and Happy Birthday to Ms. Zelda Rae Williams! Quarter of a century old today but always my baby girl. Happy Birthday @zeldawilliams Love you!”
