    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 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...

    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...

    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.

    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...
