    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...

    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.

    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...
