Suicide is equivalent to homicide. Is a crime, just against yourself.
not usually but occasionally - haven't we had the conversation already?
you can only believe this if you are a cynic
but too much suffering makes cynics of most anyone
Suicide is a desperate plea for help, a desperate cry of deep lasting pain. If you suffer in life, you may very well also suffer in the after-life. To hang in there and be strong, despite this f***ed up world, is noble and brave.
it's most of the time the act of a very self-centered person.
'......ooooooooooo.waaaah, poor me!! poor me!!!.............."
see what I mean????????????
no it isnt'
'Precludes all suffering in this world' makes it cowardly, NOT noble. There's nothing noble or brave about stopping 'pain' or trying to run away from it.
And what do you know about death? What does anyone know on this side? A good guess would be to believe there IS such thing as hell and that's where you're going if you kill yourself.
I'm not afraid to die. I would give my life if it meant someone else could live. But killing yourself just because you think it'll end your suffering regardless of the people around you who love you and care for you is both selfish and cowardly. So your theory is wrong.
Brave is when one decided to face this fvcked world than running away from it
Then u r not brave enough to make it worth it, I've been tried to end my life two times before I finally understand why I still here , and I now appreciated all I have including air that I breath
I tend to look at it as if it were admitting that you are not strong enough to deal with it.
Noble..no. To me it's like killing yourself before going to battle, because your too afraid of someone else killing you.
Brave...no. More like childish. And un-responsible.
You want all the joys of a "high life" yet you are not willing to go through the toil of having to climb the mountain to get to them.
Only you can set your limitations.
Listen to what you just said.
It is not the adversity the other have placed on you that is making you want to give up.
But the feeling of depression that you say is "too hard to bare".
If your going to let an emotion dictate the outcome, then choose anger.
Get mad about how you are treated and force change. If the medical system doesn't want to help, then find those who do.
What are others doing?
Don't be so vane to think that you are the only one out their who is feeling this way.
GET UP! GET MAD! GET A LIFE FILLED WITH REASON!
Seek and I am sure that you will find other who will say that you are wrong.
Science has made many advances that you(as a good little guinea pig) will never be told about.
Don't just crawl into the box that was handed to you.
I'm not sure how to feel about suicide anymore. It doesn't feel noble or brave. I just think its another way to die. There's something about choosing when and how you want to die that feels right. There should be a new word to use other then suicide because suicide sounds really bad.
Its a cowards act with so many people clinging to life and have their life extinguished to early to have a person willingly take there own when others have no choice is simply a cowards act.
Are you going to die from a disease? If yes, tan do your thing. If you just got depression pick your feet up and get moving and fix yourself.
From your other question I gather you have HIV or have moved into AIDS. I would be more willing to not object to suicide when they have a life-changing disease. Depression I just dont buy into, call me blue collar with those old-school parents from the 50s but depression just doesn't cut it in my book.
Are you in sick ?
wait sick you have ?
I know someone who has AIDS treatment
Suicide is a SELFISH ,and COWARDLY thing to do. You leave all those you know alone and in Pain.
My ,My,My, as I said selfish. If you don't like the way you are being treated, Stand up for yourself. Make no mistake if you commit suicide,YOU will throw away every Chance for Happiness YOU will ever Have. Those around you will be sad for a week or a month,but Life will go on with out YOU. They will be laughing and singing again someday ,but YOU will be gone FOREVER. :)
No. It's cowardly.
My brother committed suicide, he wasn't a coward, he was so deeply in pain. :-(
No it's not. You have to get help, and just remember the pain it's going to inflict on the people you leave behind. I can assure you it's hell for them. My brother was 46. You're young and need help now. Please get it.
I've just read that you have HIV. There are millions of dollars being spent on research. Hang in there! There could be a cure any year now and you're not at the AIDS stage yet, so with medication you could live a long and meaningful life. Be brave, come on, please.
There are thousands, more, of people with HIV who are living healthy and productive lives because of the medication, which is improving every day. You sound very sorry for yourself and are giving up and that's very, very sad. :-( I wish you well.
No it is selfish.
You still probably have people who you will leave confused and heart broken.
I'm really sorry you feel that way...
You are sick :/ and you can get help
can be, mostly not though
