I agree with this. I've wrestled with suicidal thoughts off and on in my life and attempted suicide once. There is nothing logical about the state of mind you are in. It is more like a last resort at finding some measure of peace in your life when you have been in mental pain and distress for a extended period of time and see no way out of it.

If you have suicidal tendencies, then most likely you have already been upset, depressed, unhappy, troubled etc etc for an extended period of time. In such a state, your mind is probably quite muddled and you are not able to think clearly.
As such, when you decide to kill yourself, the decision is unlikely to have been made on logical and sensible grounds.
