Seems I have much to learn on this subject matter—thanks for the clarification.

Self-hatred can certainly play a role in suicide, but I don't think it was the decider, in this case. I think it was more that she just wanted her life to be over with—after the choice she unknowingly made, she decided that ending it all was the better option. It was that unknowing choice—that event or sequence of events—rather than who she was as a person that led her to suicide.
And since this thread is taking this turn, I'm just going to have this be my last response—we can continue this in PM, if either one of you like.
“Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent. We would not dare to conceive the things which are really mere commonplaces of existence. If we could fly out of that window hand in hand, hover over this great city, gently remove the roofs, and and peep in at the queer things which are going on, the strange coincidences, the plannings, the cross-purposes, the wonderful chains of events, working through generations, and leading to the most outre results, it would make all fiction with its conventionalities and foreseen conclusions most stale and unprofitable.”
