I have thoughts of it all the time and no it does not make me selfish. There are only two people in this world that care for me. My immediate and extended family and everyone else doesn't care for me and treats me horribly. Most people who say people who commit suicide are selfish lack compassion for what the person is feeling and doesn't know how the person feels. Also people who commit suicide, attempts it, or have thoughts of it aren't ''crazy.'' If you were dealing with the stuff they were dealing with it, you would probably be the same way.

I do get somewhat upset sometimes when someone unbudgingly views it as selfish. In some cases, the act may actually be a selfish act-- but you know what? So what if it is? Maybe they're actually thinking about themselves and doing this for themselves for once-- what about while they were here, struggling every day to stay alive for whatever reason, for those they care about or whatever-- nobody takes that into consideration. Other cases, some people do understand the impact and how it'll make certain people feel, and it kills them, but there's a fuck lot of other unbearable, painful, intense feelings. It's selfish of other people to try to keep someone in pain, as well. There's really no justifying either side, I guess. I just wish people were more understanding about the topic. What you can handle doesn't mean everyone can handle. We were all brought up differently, we all live differently, we're all different people. At the end of the day, these people in pain just want to be normal, stable, happy.0

This sounds very weak minded. I know how when a person feels isolated and it seems as if the world is against you that suicide could seem like a good option, but it's not and it never will be. It's quitting. The ultimate quitting. They don't say "when the going gets though, the tough get going" for no reason! If the whole world is against you then FIGHT THE WHOLE WORLD. NEVER STOP FIGHTING. I think that committing the act of suicide without seeking help is very selfish, there are always people willing to help! ALWAYS! NO ONE should ever feel the need to kill themselves for any reason, and if you find yourself sinking into that pit then REACH OUT! I and many other will always be there to help if we can!1
