Because suicide is just killing yourself for a selfish reason whereas self-sacrifice is for the sake of others.

but sometimes sacrificing themselfs could lead to the same outcome and why some people don't like it or girls.
also it would be honor and they could feel better about themselfs and the way they died.

I agree although its not just girls, its a guy manliness thing, that cowards kill themselves , etc. Some do it BC they think they didn't live up to the manly ideal, y know. Paradoxically.

well there has been that dilemma with wars where someones wifes don't want them to waste their lives in war and says something like "Why are you going to do this to me? so why can't I waste my life as well do you know what this will do to me in the future and the kids?"

One is for a coward, the other for either a fool, or a hero.

One is selfish the other is selfless. Still some people would like to commit suicide so their family won't have to see themselves suffer... The ending of a life is a sad affair regardless.

Society has programmed us into thinking that sacrificing yourself for another living being is a honorable deed, while suicide means inflicting pain upon the people most dear to you for no good reason. Society's view, not mine.


what is your view?
