This reminds me of a story with this backstory. An alien civilization ascended to a higher plane of existence to prevent a cataclysm in their planet, but after millennia they got tired of living and, unable to end their own lives, went to earth, possessed people and convince them to kill themselves. However, only those that were content with living carried out the act. Those too empty inside to kill themselves gained powers.
