What do you think about people who commit suicide?

I know this is a sensitive topic but I just want to know what people think about this.

  • Sad, especially when it's for a reason that's really temporary, like a mentally unstable teenager going through a break-up.

    But I personally was a case as one might say. Obviously it didn't come that far but every day I was carefully analyzing and fantasizing about ways how to end it, and when to end it.

    I'd say to at least not judge about suicide until you know all the facts. Many people will tell the severely depressed things like "Oh, it'll get better I'm sure of it" but that actually doesn't help. It isn't even help, it only shows how much you fail to understand what we're going through.

    Sometimes people suffer for a very long time and it twists their minds in way happy people cannot comprehend. Certain folks are depressed for life and nothing they tried has helped them.
    Imagine setback upon setback in terms of medication, hobbies, family bonds, your love life, your self-perception and pretty much all aspects in life. Imagine going to bed every single day hoping you do not wake up the next. Now imagine that for some people, this is too much to bear.

    Don't you criticize cases like this this. It's just not right to do so. Mental suffering is not something you can measure objectively for everyone. Suicide isn't "right" either, but taking into consideration all of the above I can MOST DEFINITELY sympathize with it. Life just doesn't work out sometimes and it's sad, but fuck.. Slowly growing old while not getting any enjoyment out of life isn't exactly super fun times, either!

    Anyway. I'm doing much better now, but still.. It's something I occasionally still wonder about. Just a fleeting thought in the back of my mind. Thanks for reading.

  • Life must be really shit to have the guts to take your own life, however, it is a cowardly way out and leaves so many friends a family to deal with the grief. The parents/family/friends will spend forever blaming themselves for not being able to protect them or help them. Its something I don't think I could ever do unless I was in pain and going to die anyway, something like a terminal illness.

  • It's sad that they felt that was the only option left.

    It is not cowardly. It is an act of desperation and last resort.

  • Just keep it clean and hang yourself or take alcohol with pain killers. Don't cause your family members, friends, and others any more pain than you already are by splattering your cerebellum all over the wall or ruining someone's life by jumping in front of their vehicle.

    • nice... :D

    • Worst I saw recently (short of a mass shooting) was some asshole who called the cops on himself and killed one of them when they arrived. The officer was a father of three, as I recall.

  • I've almost done it a couple times. It's scary, but can be bypassed. They need help, a friend, something to hold on to when in that dark place. They aren't cowards, just really desperate and deserve release in the most uplifting way. If you sense someone is going through a hard time that could lead to that, talk to them. Talking does a lot.

  • I have no problem with it, world's far to overpopulated as it is & people have a right to how they feel. I'll never understand other peoples need to control/manipulate. It is that person's choice to suicide & no one else's, as long as there not physically harming others while doing it.

  • I think it's very sad that people get to a point in their lives where they just don't see anything positive anymore and that the only way to stop feeling so bad is to end their life altogether.

  • They really need some help or companionship. I've been in some tough circumstances but I know for a fact that whatever happens I'll never commit suicide. I would think of it as weak and humiliating.

  • I think they underestimate the pain they bring to those who care about them by doing that. I think they're living in a hell that only they know, and that had they opened up to someone, maybe someone could lift them back out. I think they don't necessarily want to die, so much as they want to hide - to escape a life situation they find inescapable. I know because, a few short years ago, I was there - and I am so happy now I didn't go through with it. Someone came into my life, and she's the light of my life.

    Things do change.

    There are, of course, circumstances in which I genuinely cannot blame someone for doing this. Question to ask is, are you really there:

  • They are people who've been hurt in some way. It's always possible to help them, but many people ignore or bully other people because they can only talk about themselves.

    It's easier to judge others... then yourself.

  • I feel sad for them that they felt suicide was their only option. I've spoken to suicidal people and it's just heartbreaking to be at the point where you don't feel like life is worth living anymore. I want to help them but of course, not everyone can be helped unless they first help themselves. It's just a really terrible situation any time I hear about someone taking their own life.

  • I get them, I know what it's like to just want to stop existing. So, I don't judge them. I feel sorry that they couldn't see any hope for a better future, and I hope they're in a better place now. Or something like that. There have been times where I've been jealous of them, because they have the guts to do it, but I don't. Overall, I understand suicide, but I still think people shouldn't waste their life away like that.

  • Honestly I don't know what to say because I don't know those people. I just know that it's unfortunate and and if I was given the chance I would've given anything in my power to have prevented it or to have made them feel anything other than the way that they were feeling because I know what they're going through... And I just can't believe how some people say they're wimps or they just take the easy way out when really they've reached out so many times and fought or tried to ignore it but they just couldn't win the battle and saw it as their last resort.

    People that commit suicide aren't selfish the people that say this, that don't help them, that ignore them while they're here but suddenly want them back when they're gone that are.

  • Its always difficult. Of course its their life and they do what they want with it. But they hurt relatives with it that stay behind. And it can go further if people who are not even relatives get involved. In Europe , a lot of suicides are committed by juming under a train. That train with hundreds to thousand people in it has to wait in the middle of nowhere until the police releases the tack. That may take many hours.

  • I think it's very sad that they've chosen a permanent solution to what is usually a temporary problem. Some people can't find another way out, and that is deeply sad. Better mental health resources need to be made available to us all.

  • I don't judge them because you never know what someone is going through and it is always easier to say what you would have done or what they should do when you are on the outside looking in. I believe when a person commits suicide just like any other way out whether voluntary or not, you will incarnate and whatever is troubling your soul will be there to deal with in the next life. We have free will some choose to live some choose to die or escape only to come back to this shitty place it's a karmic cycle and if you don't do the work you keep going through the same thing until you solve the problems.

  • I don't approve of it but I understand how hard life can get. I've spent a lit of time in a clinic being treated for depression and my mum has attempted suicide multiple times. It's not something you can really empathize with if you haven't been there yourself.

  • It's a personal choice of theirs and not something everyone should feel entitled to bitch or speculate about it. It's terrible and sad of course, but way too many people make someone else's suicide about their own moral convictions.

  • I know this is going to get downvotes and may be will be removed:

    But when a person takes its own life shows how weak he/she was. That he or she didn't attempted to do more and never asked for help.

  • It saddens me because, I've been there. I tried and luckily failed. Everyone says, suicide is for cowards, suicide is a selfish act. Suicide IS a selfish act, but when you're at your absolute lowest point, the last thing you're thinking about is all those that would miss you when your gone. The only thing that's going through your head is how everyone would be better off if you were gone, how much you just want the pain to end and feeling like it's the only option left to do so.

    My heart goes out to those who are suffering and hopefully I'll get the chance to talk a few more out of taking their own life along the way.
