Yo guys, get ready for some dark times. Like something out of a Todd Solondz movie, self-help radio show hosts Lynne Rosen, 46, and her boyfriend John Littig, 48, committed suicide together Wednesday night, by suffocating themselves with plastic bags. The pair hosted a show called “The Pursuit of Happiness” on WBAI Pacifica radio, and regularly spoke about how to overcome depression and lead more fulfilling lives. Rosen, a trained psychotherapist, was the main host of the show, and Littig––a motivational speaker and life coach by trade and a musician on the side – often appeared with her. Together, Littig and Rosen founded the company Why Not Now, a life coaching program designed to “foster your inner strengths, identify hidden and untapped resources, and put you confidently on the path to designing the life you’ve always wanted to live.”

The couple covered things like dealing with change, challenging yourself, finding and keeping happiness, and leading your best life. So far, it’s unclear what prompted the joint suicide, but it’s sobering to think that people who dedicated themselves to embracing happiness could fall into such a deep pit of despair. Catch a rather inspiring clip of the pair below. [Gawker]
