You’ll probably find that some friends and family members become angry with you. They think you’re giving up; they don’t understand why you won’t expend the extra effort to keep living. First, their anger springs from love (see above). And second, they have no idea the mental, emotional, and physical anguish you’ve suffered. While their anger hurts, it shouldn’t change your decision. Ride it out, and hope they come around before it’s too late.
