Define Suicide Meaning

hey, why did you look this up? i know shit gets hard and you feel like you can’t go on, but trust me, you can. you aren't alone. some people might not understand you or your problems, but there's other ppl who understand you even better than they ever could. talk to the right ppl. you aren't alone. no one deserves to be on their own. not even you. i know it's hard to keep on keeping on sometimes. i'm proud you for waking up every day. think about this: do you want to end your life, or do you just want to end the way your life is right now? because i can assure you, you can change your life, you don't have to end it. it's another challenge but you don't have to go through it alone. tell yourself everyday you will hold off for one more day, one more hour, one more minute, whatever you can manage. and please get help if you can't deal with it alone. it should never come this far. suicide is not the solution. talk to someone. talk to a helpline. we need you around because you're important. don't listen to what others tell you. you're beautiful. you're valid. you're strong. you matter. please don't hurt yourself. don't commit suicide. I APPRECIATE YOU. THE WORLD WOULDN’T BE THE SAME WITHOUT YOU. the greatest thing i have ever done is kept going, so please; stay alive.

please don’t commit suicide, if you need anything, send me a message on my podcast’s instagram; @100percenterin.pod

An act which, despite its distaste to many people, is not to be judged. The most notable of the outcomes is the death of the practitioner - however there are other things to consider. It could be done to prove a point, to end personal suffering, or in other extreme circumstances. Consider, for instance, if one had cancer and knew it to be both incurable and excruciatingly painful - and to make things even simpler this person eighty four years of age - suicide would be justified and probably not looked down on. Many who commit suicide may look on their death as a sort of martyrdom (whether it be a delusion of grandeur or realistic is not my place to decide) and believe that it will prove a point. Then there are those who make what many consider to be a mistake and do it in a fit of passion or rage. As I said earlier, though, it is an action that is not to be judged by the living (or in my mind, by anyone). It is a matter of personal decision as to what is best for ther person considering it. While many would say it is an act of selfishness because of the supposed depression it inflicts on others, one might also question what debt we carry to others? Does meeting someone mean that I must live for their happiness? While it is a selfish act in the truest sense of the phrase - an act carried out in self interest - I would contend that this isn't something to condemn as our bashing of it would be in our own self interest. It is an act of self-indulgent hypocrisy to require someone to live through their sadness because we want to limit our own.
Similarly, one who is considering the act should consider others. Other than in the instance of proving a point, it should be done discreetly and not in an overly dramatic fashion so as not to cause others undue or excess pain. As someone who has considered it many times in the past, I have thought it through very thoroughly, and while some may consider suicidal thoughts a sign of depression I would like to note that it has always cheered me up in my moments of despair as it reminds me of my impermanence and that my troubles will all be over one day. It has allowed me to cope. I speak, mind you, not only as the "melodramatic self-piteous emo goth freak" but also as someone who has been on the other end.
Most notably, one should consider just how irrevocable the act is.

1. My elderly neighbor commited suicide three years ago, and now his suffering is at an end.
2. A friend of the family took a bottle of pills and commited suicide, in a moment of regret she left an appology.
3. Suicide, like many other things, is not ours to judge as right or wrong - but the decision should be weighed heavily.

p.s. saying to god, "you can't fire me, I quit!" lol - that was a good one.

---Suicide is NOT the cowards way out. If you commit suicide it doesn't mean that you are a weak or bad person. Everybody encounters problems during their lives that may make their lives hard. But it's not how bad these problems are that matters, it's how the individual knows to handle these problems. Some people can't see a way out other than suicide but that doesn't, in any way, make them a weak or lesser person. It only shows that they haven't been taught how to handle their problems in any better way. And that is not their fault.

---Never ignore somebody if they start to talk about ending their life. Most of the time it is NOT for attention. Most of the time it is a cry for help. They are asking for somebody to show that they care. They aren't doing it to be called a poser or stupid or an attention-seeker or any other shit like that. They're saying it because they actually DO want to end it...they do actually feel the need to die. And if you just ignore them, how are you going to feel when you find out that they're dead? Think about it...just try to help the individual as much as you can.

---Suicide is NOT a selfish act. You all say that they're leaving their loved ones behind and hurting them, but that really only makes you selfish. How can you expect this person to continue living through all the pain that their life is giving them? To go through the feeling of being invisible, like they have no one to confide in? To go through feeling like everybody that once loved them has now abandoned them? And to go through feeling that everyday the walls are closing in on them and that everyday they are sinking further and further into despair? Into loneliness and heartache? How on earth can you expect someone to live with that all the time, just to keep everybody else happy? It's not like it's their duty to make everyone happy. So stop being selfish yourself and think of the individual for once.

---Don't think that suicidal people don't care about you. One of the common reasons for suicide is that the individual doesn't want to hurt their loved ones anymore. And though they know that suicide may hurt their loved ones, it stops the individual from ever hurting them again. Better once than a million more times. And deep down inside, the individual probably does know that people do care, but they just can't believe that when they're feeling so down and out. It's just hard to think that people care about you when you feel that they never seem to show it and they never seem to be there when you need them most.

---If you are someone who believes in fate and God and you believe that everybody has a particular time to die made for them, then you should also believe, as sad and horrible as it may be, that suicide is meant to happen. Perhaps the individual is actually MEANT to die at this time and it just so happens that suicide is the way they die?
I really don't know...I'm just putting down my opinion. I hope it helps at least one person out there.

---This definition wasn't intended to encourage people to commit suicide, I am merely hoping that it will help everybody else to understand a bit more about suicide and why people commit it.

Commiting suicide does not make you weak. Or selfish.

an act of taking your own life, usually conceived through extreme emotional distress. Most people call people who act on their decision cowards looking for the easy way out while it is just the opposite, these people who have gone through so much in life they are willing to throw it all away in hope of ending their suffering, which when i thought of it took the most courageous act of ending their lives. While most look down on younger people who go through with this act, while the people who should be looked down on are the people who caused such emotional trauma to the person.

Suicide is a very complex thing that should not be used until all other means of improving your life have been used.

Humans began to question why they existed in this seemingly endless area that we call the universe. Some people answered that question with religion, family, labor, and love – but others saw these only as ways of coping with an apparent lack of objective meaning and purpose. The people that found absolutely no purpose turned to suicide to end their emptiness – and continue to do so to this very day. Suicide exists as a response to societal illusions of goals and purpose, and not as the actions of deranged or sad individuals.
Society does not concern itself with the individuals that make up the whole, but rather that the whole functions. If society loses a large portion of its members to suicide, it will be unable to sustain itself.

Along with lack of meaning in the universe, suicide also correlates with an individual’s level of socialization. Individuals with low socialization realize that in the eyes of society, they do not mean anything. These people may not have jobs, families, or friends. They believe that whether or not they wake up the next day, the world will keep on turning. An individual with a high level of socialization becomes disillusioned with societal expectations that once kept him going. He can no longer cope with the pressure of the day to day routine of going to work, bonding with friends, and raising a family. He wants out; he wants to let someone else take his place, because he knows that he is absolutely replaceable.

I can no longer function in society with purpose, I may commit suicide

The act of taking one's own life. Sometimes the only option for people who suffer endlessly with emotional and/or physical pain. The Swiss suicide clinic, Dignitas, should be applauded for allowing people with terminal illnesses to easily and painlessly free themselves from their ongoing suffering. The clinic should also allow people with depression and other debilitating mental illnesses to die peacefully in the same way. At the end of the day, if a person really does not want to live in this world any longer, and if freedom really does exist, then that person should have the right to end their own life, without any kind of judgement or intervention from others.

He committed suicide to free himself from his unbearable emotional pain.

what people do when they start to fear life more than they fear death. After this point the only thing that will keep them alive is a feeling of responsibility (which is total bullshit) or lack of will-power

Suicide is the act of a person killing their self. Many people say that suicide is selfish and the "coward's way out". That is pure bullshit. If it really was the easy way out, then everybody would be doing it. What is just as cowardly is living a life you hate just because you don't wanna die. Even if someone is killing themselves, they will never know what is on the other side until they pull the trigger. Eternal damnation? A never ending void? They will never know. That makes suicide a pretty brave thing to do in my opinion. And suicide is NOT selfish. It is selfish of the person that doesn't want someone to commit suicide, but instead have them keep on living and feeling like shit for their own comfort and amusement. Suicide is a choice, and people should not be judged if they get sick of life and want to throw themself off a building.

The people that spew the same "suicide is the permanent answer to a temporary problem" bullshit are the people that don't know what it's like to be depressed. And to the people who call others that commit suicide "cowards": Let's see you try to shoot or hang yourself. Do YOU have the balls to do it?

Please consider someone's feelings before you judge them. Suicide is a completely personal decision. It is NOT a joke.

People say suicide is selfish and cowardly. That's bullshit. It's more selfish to expect someone to go through life feeling like shit, just so you can keep them around because they make you happy or some shit. It is not they're duty to keep you happy whilst they go through hell, you fucking morons.

Someone decided their live was no longer living, so when they killed themselves, all the sensible people who loved them felt very sad, but realised that it would be selfish to expect them to go on living, just for their own pleasure.

1) The act of taking one's own life. 2) An ill-advised act causing irrevocable harm to one's reputation: political suicide, social suicide, intellectual suicide.

Comparing rape to bad traffic would be considered political suicide, especially considering women are consistently swing voters.
