For those that don't believe in God, that is not a deterrent. To say it's a sin means very little in an argument with mixed religious views.

It is not necessarily a cowardly act, the person could either by irrational or perfectly logical. Some people commit suicide because they "hate their life". Other do it for medical reasons like a chronic disease. Why fight what is inevitable? They will die so why prolong the pain for both themselves and their loved ones?

Others just rationalize their own deaths and act upon their rationale. They are able to see the world in a different way which is neither pessimistic nor optimistic and make a perfectly logical decision not to continue their lives.

i agree that committing suicide is a sin...
those who commit suicide are those who think their life is miserable....
everyone has his/her own problems...
it is our choice to be happy or not...

it is better to count all the things that we have instead of those things that we dont have...

Until that day, "Let him who walks in the dark , who has no light, trust in the name of the Lord and rely on his God."
Isaiah 50:10

I find it a selfish act, your loved ones need your presence even if you think they don't care or they detest you...someone still cares for you and it might not be obvious. Give it a few more years and you'll understand what I'm saying, I almost did it too because of so many reasons...
but the thought of my sisters who were really just kids back then, needing someone older in their lives to guide them at a stage where I felt so alone and misunderstood, it kept me from committing suicide. Erhm, I hope that made sense. But sometimes, I think some people needs medication too, since I had a friend who felt suicidal without her prescribed meds, even though she was 'perfectly normal' on the outside.

If you feel overwhelmed, meditate and pray. Celebrate things that you take for granted, and just wait for the time that you'll be an adult and be given the chance to run your life the way you want to.
It helps, trust me I've been there.


i dont think its selfish it all depends on thescenerio >< recently i attempted to kill myself for the 13th time >< and the only ppl that even BOTHERED to care were the police and the docters that revived me

3. Dude, is it THAT hard to fix your life? it's so simple... just quite all the bad things...

I used to think suicide was a "selfish act" myself because I never really understood it. To me, life could never be so horrible that you'd want to end it all. Things changed for me when my friends' brother killed himself by jumping off the balcony (we were on the 17th story, they lived one floor above us). I was 13 at the time and I'll never forget it.. years later, we found out that he had been put in jail for a month for being an accomplice to car theft (he was simply there with his friends when it happened). He was raped in jail and it psychologically and physically scarred him so much that he didn't eat for days. He was home for about a week before he finally killed himself.


This really prompted me to change my viewpoint, I also counseled at a crisis center when I was in high school and now I think I have a better understanding about suicide. It's a complicated thing, so think before you judge.


Oh...
This is why I'm scared to death of having kids, you'll raise them to be good people but you can't tell if they'll end up as serial rapists or they'll be hurt in such a way that it will hurt to breath...

Have you read the Kite Runner? Read it dear, it might help you regarding that scar...

Yup, I own it and I've lent it to many of my friends.. I almost cried while reading some parts (and I'm one of those people who never cries or reacts emotionally during movies).

It really depends on the circumstances. If your life was horrible, you were bullied, getting depressed, fine go ahead, at that moment you were probably at the lowest point of your life. But if were something less than that, suck it up.
I remember in 3rd grade, even though I was really young, I was having the worst time of my life. I was getting bullied everyday, even my friends backstabbed me. In freaking THIRD grade, I had no one I could trust. I couldn't tell anyone in my family, they would just overreact and be all like "just suck it up," and then, I really considered it. I considered suicide. Okay so now, you might have thought that's a bit much for a 9 year old, that's a bit rash or silly little kid, but at that moment it wasn't. It was horrible, probably worse than hell. (Even though I don't believe in that.)
But I sucked it up, counted out the things that made me happy and chose reasons on why to live. I just sucked it up and went on with life and life's going pretty good right now...so....:)

I find suicide is a perfectly normal phenomenon in all species not just humans.
Suicide is prompted by an individual's perception of self, they can have everything they need but if thier expectations of life aren't met, they feel hopelessness, etc. It's different in all situations, thus hard to fix.

Some people say that committing suicide is selfish. But, aren't they being the one's that are being selfish. What gives them the right to control another's mortality?
Some people say that suicidal people who accomplished their goal are cowards. But they conquered on of the most feared things: death. How can they be cowardly if they can overcome fear its self?
Some people say that it isn't fair to the families of the deceased. But who are they to say what's fair? The world in isn't fair, fair is subjective. The family could have been the problem. Why should a person live with said family if they are the abusers?
All "problems" can be solved? It always gets better? Well, the person that is willing to face death than live within their world would beg to differ. Its easy for outsiders to say that and stuff like "Is your life that horrible?", etc. but how much do they really know about the situation?
If a person cannot live to their own expectations, they should have the right to choose their own mortality. Why are outside agencies (church,government,etc.) and people allowed to decide if they can die or not? Why should the person suffer to make others content? Why should their mortality be controlled by others?

I think those people who are suicidal do not care about others and only think about themselves. Other people are going through major problems especially children where they are put into a situation they can't handle. Like starvation all over the world, they are dying from malnutrition and starvation and other stuff, but deciding to kill yourself is just playing stupid, I think they need another reality check before they go play god.
