---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
. Or selfish
