    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...

    falling backwards Like you're slippin' through the cracks Like no one would even notice If you left this town and never came back You walk outside and all you see is rain You look inside and all you feel is pain And you can't see it now [Chorus] But down the road the sun is...

    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...

    Unless you're in the depths of hell,

    and nothing else matters other than letting go... even then there is a better way. That way is punishing the torturer, or screaming about how hurt you are to some jerk "You hurt me" ..no violence needed, just need like to say it, you never let something go.. Let stuff go, be...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
