response to PsyReality

in reference to Iris Chang's suicide you said:
" She isn't the first and she isn't going to be the last. It's a profession with a very high suicide rate.

She stopped living the illusion of doing something usefull. She stopped being an optimist.

She could not handle the real thing. "

I can't debate the first part as I have no numbers to grapple with.

For the second and third part, I just don't see how you could claim to know what she was thinking or her motivation for doing what she did. I am not judging her for commiting suicide since only she knows what she had to go through, but I don't think it's right that you project onto her your opinions.

And what exactly do you mean by "the real thing"?
