    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...

    Think about this. Everyone

    who cared about you realizing you died, even the ones you didn't think cared. Someone cares for you whether or not you know it. Their life is destroyed as they feel they could have helped you. All the ones who feel the same way as you lose hope if they figure out what you did...

    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...

    Suicide is forever. Whatever the current

    challenges that are in your life, there can always be a new chapter that can be written. We've all been depressed or down, but that's where we all have an opportunity to change. I strongly recommend that anyone considering suicide do the following: + Seek professional...

    suicide is the most selfish thing anyone could

    ever do to their friends and family. it's a permanent solution to a temporary problem. all it does is cause intense pain to everyone around you while you skip off into the astral plane. if it were up to me in the afterlife I would have Ammet eat all souls who commit suicide...

    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...

    I've tried it however.

    It's just not preferable. Someone killing me instead is honestly the way to go 'cause then it's not your fault that your dead. And people also can't blame you and call you selfish for not wanting to live a miserable life. That's y philosophical view on it though.

    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...

    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...

    A lot of people who suffer depression

    Don't do that guys. That is not the answer to

    fixing life's problems. It will not help. It only spreads the pain to those who care about you. There are people who care about you. It is just hard to see.
