I've been there at certain points in my life. I've never even tried, nor will I try, but the thought has crossed my mind. tehstud, I tend to disagree with you on that one. When you hit rock bottom and you see no way out, you start considering the options. I'm on my 2nd trip to rock bottom, last time I had someone there to pull me out, this time... well it's been awhile now, and I was at the point yesterday when I just wanted it to end. I have better self control then others. I try my best to look forward to the future, and I work hard on improving my situation. Sometimes it just aint easy.

My 2 cents. I think suicide is a bad idea, and I do agree it is a very selfish act. You just gotta keep pushing through, and eventually something good will come your way.

Thats why I said taking your life is twisted??? Think about it. No one Knows what its like to be dead. We only express our feelings while alive..............................I don't want to talk about this anymore lol. Bye.


You said if you kill yourself, you give up everything you have.

My question, rephrased, is what if the only things you have are shitty? Stuff no one wants?

There are too many variable situations where suicide can be seen as "acceptable" or "wrong".. and the choice between those two also depends on the values of each different individual.

My idea on all of this is that the people who say concrete/solid answers such as "Suicide is the most selfish act." and "Suicide is a good thing and only choice for some." are both correct and incorrect.

You can't just spat out one answer for the huge and broad spectrum of suicides all around the world, past, future, and present. There can be cases where suicide is honorable, where suicide is out of cowardice, where suicide is out of love, where suicide is out of despair, and where suicide is even committed for the best of someone else.

You just can't really say it's a good or bad idea for all of them. There are just too many reasons.

I don't have to kill myself... Life and nature are doing a fine job of doing me in.

If I make it to 45, it'll be a goddamn miracle.

suicide is nobodys fault. And no its not "selfish"
Its kind of selfish of anyone who suggests it is.

Suicide isnt an easy thing. It isnt something that just anybody can just get up and do. You have to be seriously in a emotional state where you feel trapped like there is no other way out. Death is scary but when you get to the point where life is scarier than death then there becomes a problem. If you get to the point where you actually commit suicide then it was not possible for you even think about your family or think logically at all because of your brain being overwhelmed with emotion.


I know for a fact suicide is NEVER the answer (emotion is just a passing thing), but i also know better than to blame the person committing suicide for being unable to see this.

Always having to point a finger and put a blame on somebody in every situation is one of the worst qualities in humans

Suicide is a cop out, plain and simple. Life just isn't for everybody, I guess.

I don't think suicide is the right way to go. If you feel unhappy with things change it. Happiness can come. Sooner or later. I never saw suicide or harming to oneself as an option. I did once cut myself. And guess what I lost friends and I Hurt a lot of people. Imagine killing yourself. Think of all The people that will be hurt. They are important too. Death is never an option when someone has a choice.

Hmm.. my closest "attemp" was when I was 10... I was a very unhappy kid
No seriously, I had alot going through in my life, struggling with anoerxia and my parents constantly fighting.
I wrote a sucide letter and made a suicide plan. I decided which bridge to jump from, measured the hight and the possibility of an instant death. About two weeks later I got put into childrens mental hospital...

I think about suicide since I'm 15, I'm 22 now. I'm not depressed, have no money/family problem, I'm a student and I have a job, I'm really smart and not in bad shape..but sometimes I just don't see the point of living...In my everyday life I calculate if it worth to do something before doing it otherwise I don't waste my time..but what if my whole life is just wasting my time..I don't know..I guess I lack motivation maybe, I'd give my life to a sick person if I could so they can enjoy it.

I never asked to be placed in the position I am.

I have never asked to live, and I didn't ask to be in any situation I am now.

So it is only fair that there is a way out. It isn't being a coward.

So far, haven't come close to attempting it, but I have given my life an expiration date... If I remain single through age 30, I'm ending it there.

Lack of love and attention isn't the only reason commit suicide, you know.

They're only trying to help, and I'm sure have an extremely stressful job.

Trying to calm down a most likely irrational person over a telephone? Sounds hard.

Then I'm sure a lot feel guilty for those who still killed themselves after calling, which is totally awful. Give 'em credit.

I suppose you're right. I've just witnessed to many fakes to keep a level head about it all.
