    I don't understand suicide.

    I have family members and close friends that have contemplated it, and some that have attempted it. Call me heartless, but I've just never understood it. It doesn't make sense. Why would someone do that? Do they not realize that it's permanent? are people really that ignorant...

    I have spent a good part of my life feeling

    suicidal. Everyday I have felt I need to quit life. I was unwanted, I didnt belong, I didnt fit in. I have dealt with body image issues, low self esteem and depression. What I have gathered from my experience is that I am wrong. I am wrong in so many ways that I cannot be part...

    Dont Lose...

    Suicide is not the answer...many want to kill themselves but dont want to die...they just want the pain to stop, they feel as if they're not alive. Suicide does not have to be the only option, there are people who care for u, people who would suffer, cry, and scream in agony if...

    I am writing this post to hopefully save someone

    who is considering suicide. I know that life can be so hard, lonely, and scary sometimes, for some of us we never seem to catch a break. I should know, I was a child slave to the people I thought were my family. No matter what you're going through however, dioxide is not the...

    If I'm gonna die, I want it to be

    either in a happy place, or a murder where the murderer asks me 'Got any last words?' Because I have thought about it for hours, days even, and when I die, I want the last words to leave my mouth to be... Wait for it, these are very sophisticated words you may not be able to...

    One of the Ten Commandments says this: "You shall not murder" (Exodus 20:13). That includes everyone from the youngest child to the oldest adult and it even includes yourself. Suicide is self-murder, and killing yourself is evil in the eyes of God.   Something is terribly...

    A lot of people who suffer depression

    and anxiety who hit a suicidal level don't understand it's not them at all. Life is one basic level and our body determines it's difficulty. All happiness and sadness are chemical levels of serotonin and dopamine. And an imbalance can cause depression and anger. Simple...

    Fail. There's no way category of "suicide is

    okay" I think some people should be allowed to choose suicide as a way out. It is a mentality. It is a quick fix to a problem. Sometimes life is so meaningless death seems nice. And people are quick to jump in after the people are wanting to commit suicide. It...
