    Why Would One Want To Commit Suicide Without Leaving A Suicide Note?

    People who commit suicide generally want to inflict pain on others for real or imagined wrongs. People who are forced by some circumstance such as protecting others might not leave a note if it suits their reasoning or somehow becomes a message in a way, to their loved ones.

    Not thinking clearly - or not able to leave a not due to their poor / extremely disterbed mental state.

    most people who commit suicide don't leave a note. They're usually too depressed. They figure nobody wants to know why they killed themselves anyway.

    Most people aren't killing themselves to hurt others. If they wanted to hurt you, they'd hurt you. They want to get rid of their own pain and go someplace where no one can hurt them anymore. By the time someone feels that bad, they actually imagine you'll be relieved that they're gone, not sad. This probably isn't thinking clearly, but it's how they're thinking.

    only going from my own experience, but the note left for me by my husband was part of his attempt to be sure that I knew that I had hurt him, that (in his mind) it was my fault that he was choosing to take his own life - very sad

    My 10 year old daughter tried to commit suicide. She did not leave a note, nor would she even been capable of it. Her attempt was a spur of the moment thing after a physical fight with her cousin. She has been diagnosed with depression and felt the best thing would be to die, she did not think beyond that. I don't have a lot of personal knowledge of anyone else, but I do know that in her case, the consequences of her actions and what it would do to the family was the least of her concerns.

    I think because they don't really care about whether they leave a note or not. They want to die, they aren't looking to tell people why.

    leaving a note is talking about feelings.  When we feel safe and able to do this in many not all cases we are less likely to do something drastic.  If the speaking out is cathartic, theraputic etc.

    Either he/she doesn't want to make her/his family or friends sad and leave without anything left behind or he/she feels he/she is not worthy and he/she feel alone so yeah this is from my prospective
