Suicide would only serve to bring devastation to loved ones you never intend to hurt; emotional scars that will have to be dealt with the rest of their lives.

I have been in bad situations but I've never wanted to kill myself
I feel sorry for the people going though something so bad it would make them think of taking thier lives

i was close to committing suicide when i was 9, i know it seems really young but at that time my mom moved to another country to support us (3 other siblings total) and we had to live with my grandma...living with her was my hell. i guess maybe at that point i just thought it would be better to disappear than to be around her...yeah you might say suicide is selfish and cowardly but when someone is really unhappy or depressed its really hard to look for the light at the end of the tunnel. not all of us are lucky enough to have some type of support when people feel lonely or what not. im not like that nmore, im excited about life and the future but to this day i still carry the scars in my heart and mind that she inflicted on me 11 years ago.

Very Close, We all have issue's every now and then. People who have, or have depression will understand that sometimes it is not that easy to see a future with yourself in. But apart from that it is technically 'Game Over'. Thats not the best thing to happen. ^^

I actually came very very close , infact the annerversary of my attempt was just two days ago.As you can see though I'm still living , breathing,alive.Honestly I was fed up with everything and everyone.I didn't care anymore.I was forgotten to the world and those around me.I tried to reach out , I tried to get help but people just pulled away.So one night I took an asprin and one asprin turned into the entire bottle plus another bottle of pain relievers and some sleeping pills.Before I did so though I tried once more to get some help, I reached out to my family and they ignored me , my mother even forgot my name (which wasn't a one time thing).So I passed out on my bedroom floor that night and when my sister and mother came in, they thought I was sleeping.I was semi-concious ,I started throwing up and they knew what I had done.And do you know what they did?They laughed."You think we care?"my sister said and I can still hear that half asleep sentence in my head. "Your pathetic."my mother said. And the rest of my family said the samethings , some worse, they acted as if it were a joke as I layed there puking my guts out.And that angered me.It proved that they really couldn't care less about me.That I was nothing to them but a burden.A bug on their shoe.So I gathered all the energy I had left and I crawled to the kitchen and took all the milk we had and started drinking it so I could puke out the pills i swallowed.They never called an ambulance .I just stayed shut up inside the bathroom puking for what seemed like days.Then I returned to my room with a trash basket just in case and I layed down and I let myself rest.I decided when I heard them laughing that I would make them regret that, that I would live on in spite of them and their cruel intentions.So yeah , I tried to kill myself , yeah I failed , and yeah my family still laughs in my face about it or they completly ignore me but if you think I regret the attempt on my life by myself then the answer I have for you is no.I do not regret it because now I really know that they never cared.Will I ever try it again.No.Not because I'm scared.Not because I think its stupid but because I don't want to be like the rest of my family.I don't want to be remembered as someone like them.I want to put as much distance between them and myself without the help of death.

:sweatingbullets: okay , wow, I sound kinda weird...Oh whatever , that isn't even the whole story of what went down.there were tons more bs and screwed up things but I think this edited draft is good enough for you crunchyroll folks.

People who commit (or attempt) suicide are not sane. Anyone approaching the topic of suicide needs to understand that. If you can't, then the discussion is entirely pointless. You may later regain your sanity (if you survive the attempt), but when you attempt/commit suicide, you are not sane. Well, in western cultures, anyway. ^_~

Yeah, I went there, came back and wont ever go there again, since there's just too much to see and do in life. Besides my family always dies young anyway, so I might already have limited time and I'm no use to anyone at all dead.

It's better to be dead and stupid then being a burden to everyone around you.

I've thought about it many times. I always come close to doing it. But then that rational part of my brain kicks in and prys me away. I was admitted to the hospital when I was caught in the moment of decideing. I guess they didn't see that my rational self was kicking in and pulling the knife away from my thorat.

I really need to do this. Sorry. It's revision for Sociology.

Durkheim was a French sociologist who did a comprehensive research on suicide not being caused only by personal issues, but he believed that society plays an important factor as well; in fact he wanted to prove that social integration plays a huge role as to how happy and content a person is with regards to well-being and daily life.

His theory is that the more socially integrated a person is, the less likely they are to commit suicide. Some comparisons:

Single VS Married: Singles have a higher suicide rate.
Soldiers VS Civilians: Soldiers have a higher suicide rate.
Protestants VS Catholics: Protestants have a higher suicide rate.

Not surprisingly, the economy also has an impact. In times of ecomony recession, and surprisingly, eco prosperity, people have a higher tendency to commit suicide, as compared to Economy stability.

Also, less people commit suicide during wars, but rather, when there's peace. Why is this so?

In Singapore, Elderly and middle aged women have the highest suicide rate. I guess they're stressed out about life, but i'm not sure what yet.

I would like to ask, what are some of the reasons/causes/factors that you all have for having the thought of comitting suicide? School? Relationships? Stress? Family? Depression (caused by what?), Tired of life (why aren't you deriving enjoyment in life?)

^^I can see why there would be more suicides in times of peace. During war time the need to survive is at its highest, so one wouldn't think of committing suicide when the need to just stay alive has taken over. But during times of peace, there's nothing to stray your mind away from thoughts of ending your own life.

I've thought about committing suicide, purely from interest, and it seems like stress is the main factor. Stress from school, family, friends. Its just so overwhelming that its hard to look past. Complete and utter despair clouds the mind...
I've been tired of life before, its as if nothing can bring a smile to my face. I think (for me at least) it was caused by disappointments in life. Whether it be disappointment in others or in myself. I felt like I wasn't worthy, like someone else deserved to be having this happy moment instead of me.
