Last week, a Michigan man came forward to claim a $337 million Powerball jackpot. The man said his entire family was retiring from their jobs. And therein lies the problem when hard working people suddenly strike it rich and quit their jobs for what they believe will be a life of leisure.

There's a saying that goes: "Idle hands are the devil's workshop." That old adage explains why so many wealthy people volunteer to work for free.

Instant millionaires find out all too quickly that money does not bring happiness or hope -- and without hope life is meaningless.

The Single Father's blog wrote an interesting post tying the recent suicides of music executive Chris Lighty, Don Cornelius, Junior Seau and others to depression.

First you get the money. Then you get the power. Then you get...Death? Doesn't even sound right does it? Well it seems as though that is the way things have been going as of late. There have been an unusual amount of high profile celebrity deaths this year. And quite frankly too many of them were caused by suicide. Too many men have decided to stop fighting, and just give up on life. READ MORE

      Did you just compare…this man working and pulling himself up from his bootstraps…literally…worked for DECADES…to somebody who became rich overnight (a lottery winner)? That’s apples to oranges.

      Its not like he hit the lotto. He WORKED. He helped make hip hop what it is today. He wasn’t no overnight sensation.

      When you lose that will to live all the money in the world can't keep u alive. That's y so many rich folk walk around looking soulless. Money takes away some problems but it brings a whole new set of problems too. And honestly not all depressed people realize that they're actually depressed so they don't seek help thinking death is the only way out. Its really a sad thing to be trapped inside ur own mind that way. Suicide may be selfish but some people think once they're gone all their problems are gone too. Prayers to anyone who lost someone to suicide. The guilt their loved ones feel must be immeasurable

      to me it seems like an ego thing with both black and white wealthy people. the thought of going back to which they came especially if they burned alot of bridegs on their way to the top, they will not be subjected to the ridicule that is sure to commence once the fall is imminent.

      So to avoid the realization that they are not superhuman, they kill themselves.

      KDub agreed. Don Cornelius should have never been included in the list. Suicides by the terminally ill should not count because they aren't done for the same reason and are often done with other people in mind ie: said person kills themself to avoid being a burden to their surviving family members

      Continue to pray for the Lighty Family.
      I am praying for the man that won the lottery. Many lottery winners are broke within 5-10 years of winning. All of their family and “new found friends” bleed them dry and many of them make poor financial decisions.
      ------------------------------
      I have only read about one couple who seemed to do it the smart way after they won. They live strictly off the interest. They said if they want to go on vacation or make a purchase, they wait until the money is accumulated through the interest and then use it to buy what they want.

      I just hate that sometimes people come up n lose their humility n humanity bcuz that's wat makes us all human n connects 7 billion people in the world. Hurt people cry, thirsty people drink water,cut people bleed. We all need food water shelter and clothing to survive. If you turn us inside out we're all pretty much the same. A poor man and a billionaire both turn yo dust wen they die. Celebs who don't lose that human side are the most troubled (think mj n wh

      Too much money, not enough love, nothing to keep them grounded and access to almost anything they could want leaves people feeling like they have nothing to work for anymore, nothing to push toward, nothing to aim for and so when something goes wrong they simply don't have the same motivation to keep going on that other people in the same situation but under different circumstances may have :shrugs: All money ain't good money and power is a dangerous thing

      ALL OF THIS! :clap: Humans need HOPE to survive. ("I hope I get this job", "I hope I get approved for this loan"). Rich people don't have much to hope for because they can buy everything they need. Without hope (and love) life is meaningless.

      Fame is a mo-fo, for some people. You would think with all the people on the payroll, the stress would be at a minimum.

      Whatever really' happen to "ERICA KENNEDY", the writer/journalist and godmother to Kimora Lee Simmons children? Her sudden demise was rumored suicide.

      My heart goes out to Mr. Lighty's children, especially the older child whom it was reported left with 4yr old when he and ex-wife conversations got heated.

      I honestly think these are all untreated mental health issues. Depression is a mofo and can cause a person to do some truly demented stuff even for the most educated, or most financially secured person. When a person is truly in a dark state and nothing but more problems seem to occur, it is easy for those thoughts to take precedent and make you believe that if you end it you will finally be at peace. I really think that as a community we need to encourage our people to seek out help because it does not make them weak or less than a person. Sometimes speaking to someone who does not know you and can shed some new light to your issues can work wonders and perhaps save a life

      the problems start when you try to support your entire family off your income, ask T.O. Can you believe he was actually supporting all those grown folks? "well if we all have to get jobs....," says his mother. BLANK STARE.

      The most I can do for immediate family is perhaps pay off your mortgage or buy you a car. that's it. I'd never expect to retire based off someone else coming into money. what is that? Even with a support system in place, who can u truly run to and ask for hundreds of thousands and not have hurt pride?
