I Think That Suicide Is Not the Way to Go

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 350 People

    I have thought about the easiest

    and fastest way to kill myself. I looked up on google and I read to drink bleach. The things that stopped me from doing it were my pups, mom, and God. My life isn't where I thought id be and haven planned it this way. I'm taking it one day at a time.

    To Relive Again?

    Screw having a new life. I don't wanna live anymore. If you suicide out you have to come back and do it all over again.

    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

    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...

    If you had asked me anytime during the first part of May, of this year about my 23 years of marriage, I would have told you almost without hesitation I'm a happily married man. There was one thing I wasn't happy about, but it was something I had been struggling with for some time...

    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 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...

    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...
