Yeah, but their idea of him being a better person is pretty questionable. Of all the possible backup plans, the one he picks is "tricking my best friend into thinking he just saw me kill myself". There seems to be this odd tendency of treating it as if he *did* kill himself or made some sacrifice, when instead he's essentially getting to skate free, no longer having to deal with reporters, the police, the consequences and instead being free to do the part he likes, hunt down criminals without interference. The 'suicide note', the tears... that wasn't him despairing or sad, it was a *performance*.
It's everyone else who is left in the shit. Sure, he's sacrificing John's company for some period of time, which is probably significant to him, but compared to the immense pain John is demonstrably in, it's not much.
