Opinions on Suicide Jul. 2nd, 2012 @ 01:50 PM Reply

What do you think about people commiting suicide? Is it excusable given the fact that ti may harm other people in their daily lives- i.e. upsetting loved ones, etc? Do you think that suicide makes someone a bad person, or is it excusable in certain circumstances? Also, do any of you guys have personal experiences with suicide?

Discuss.


The preceding post was probably made when I was wasted. Only a fool would think of it as fact.

People who commit suicide are cowards who can't deal with how tough life is.

I think they should kill themselves if they want. It's their lives. If they're not happy with it, let them off themselves.

I knew a guy who killed himself over a girl, he posted some shit on facebook and then went out in his backyard and hung himself from a swing set. Not sure what I learned from that...

But I guess it's subjective. Every individual incident is different. I'm sure many suicides are senseless, many are greedy, many are cowardly, and so on. But I'm sure many are fairly understandable: terminal illness, horrible pain, HIV positive cellmate won't stop raping you, etc...

I also had a friend who's mother was a cop, and she sat down on her front step and shot herself with her service revolver. I met him not long after that, I think he joined up with me and my friends because we never knew her and he wouldn't have to think about it around us.

It's hard for me to judge how badly it effected him, because I didn't know him before it happened, and he never talked about it. The only time he ever brought it up was after I had an argument with my mother on the phone. He said something along the lines of "I regret every bad thing I ever said to my mom." I don't think I'll ever forget the way he said that.

I doubt you can even imagine what a 'tough life' is. I doubt many of us here can.

It's a way of fearing reality and seeing no positive way to deal with it, mostly performed by desperate people who think too irrational.

i meant what i said

if someone commits suicide, it's probably for the best

they had problems couldn't handle and they're not going to bother any one else on earth with those problems again

solved

as long as they don't have children depending solely on them to provide support, i don't see what the problem is

The only guarantee in life is death, so if a person can have some say/control over when it happens, then more power to them.
I think it's very patronising and arrogant of people to tell others that they shouldn't commit suicide. Nobody can truly claim to know and understand what another person thinks and is going through, and if someone is so miserable that they'd rather be dead than face the world then their decision to kill themselves should be recognised and respected.

I think suicide is a very selfish act personally.

Spoken like a true drone.

People who take their lives can be selfish, but so are the people who want the person to stay alive and suffer.

Therefore, suicide is selfish-neutral.

Ah, suicide! I've had way to much experience with it, basically my family (Mum's side) has a severe genetic disposition to autism and clinical depression thus my uncle (two actually), cousin, grandmother, grandfather and a friend all killed themselves for various reasons, in an ironic and cruel twist all but two of the previous (one being the friend) killed themselves because they were sad about another family member dying. As in one of my uncles killed himself because his wife cheated, the other uncle killed himself because his brother was dead, my Granddad because his son was dead, his wife because her husband was dead and my cousin because his Dad was dead and my friend killed himself 'cos he felt guilty about stabbing someone.

All in all I'm emotionally detached from well, everything really so I'm not terribly bothered but do find them to be rather the bunch of assholes for it. There's also a guy I met on the internet who I consoled quite a few late nights when he went through a suicidal phase though his was justified my circumstance and the plan is now for me to move to America and work for him as he owns an insurance company now so there's a happy twist in the story for sure :)

They are the dumbest people. Almost all ways to kill your self can either backfire or be extremely frightening or painful. Also those of you who say they are cowards, try killing yourself, I bet you don't have the balls.

WOW OH MY GOD YOU'RE SO MACHO AND COOL

Seriously, why should they even bother if they don't want to? People should just do whatever the hell they want, even if that's killing themselves.

It's just an opinion, you know...

If you're not going to kill yourself then there's at least someone in this world who is more than willing to kill you if given the chance.

This goes for every single one of us.

Suicide is irrational. You are born with a natural instinct to survive. I'm sure it take plenty of will power to override that, but if you seriously can't think of another way out of a situation than suicide, you either aren't thinking or aren't trying hard enough.

There is always another way, even if it's getting killed by someone else. Never, under any circumstance that I can mentally conjure up, is suicide the only way.

When you think about it, every waking moment of your life, suicide is an option. Don't agree with my opinion? Then killing yourself is an option so you don't have to deal with it. Ignoring it is a much more beneficial and safe option. Arguing it is less beneficial, seeing as you have to deal with it more if you're going to change it, but still, it's an option.
