    Is suicide a selfish act?

    I think it's an easy way out for those that are suffering/depressed. Not only that, but by doing so they also make others suffer, voluntarily or not. Overcoming obstacles in life, that's what takes true bravery, imo. What do you think?

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    im sorry but suicide in most cases are selfish that is the fact. you can argue it however you want, but it is selfish. The thing is is to argue if its right or wrong. That is up to everybody. I think it is wrong no matter what.

    The only time it is fine if it is to save someone, like going on a suicide mission etc.

    No i don't think so. Suicide is suicide your killing yourself and not thinking about how many people are going to be affected by it. You may not be having a great life at the moment but think there are some people out there that have it even worse. You are giving up your life but some lost theirs and might not have not even gotten a chance to live theirs like you have. You're lucky enjoy life while you can.

    Its someones decision, some people actually can't take the pain while others just jump the gun and aren't rational on the other hand it would be sort of in a way selfish to not let someone die on their own will.

    You can never truly understand the person until you know same pain as him/her.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    ]As someone who has lived a life full of pain, loss, and disappointment I have to disagree. I'm still here, even though I entertained thoughts like that before. There's no courage involved when taking ones life. Only more pain. The true test is how many times you get back up after being knocked down by life. I have a little girl who wouldn't be here had I made a selfish quick-fix decision like that. And to make matters worse, she is autistic so I will probably be caring for her for her entire life, or at least however long I'm alive. Yet I keep trucking because I have people who depend on me to be strong. I cannot accept anyone who thinks suicide is a OK fix to their problems.

    Please get off your high horse. Nobody needs your acceptance. Don't compare your life struggles with others.... You don't even know THEIR half of the story either. Don't be a critic. Like it or not, the decision to live or die is a choice EVERYONE has the freedom to make. Live and let live.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    Some people have had a lot of shit happen to them stuff that will traumatize them every second they are awake...i think it can be selfish when families stop peopole from killing themselves and make them live in hell just so they don't have to morn there deaths..but commiting suicide can be selfish also

    I don't think it's always bad. It just depends on the type of scenario you're talking about.

    Cowards way out. Plus the majority of people do it over bullying in school? I hope they realise school doesn't last forever... Even if they start feeling crap about themselves, they have a loving family who prove otherwise...

    If it's something like abuse at home, call your council and put yourself up for foster care... There's always an answer.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    I am of both minds, One part of me thinks it is their choice and is smore justified if they are faced with a horrible sickness, however the larger part thinks that it causes a terrible terrible pain for the family and friends, they might be left wondering if there was something they could of done if the person was sad.


    Ignore the part condoning suicide there actually. I think it is better to have the belief you can over come something. Stay strong!

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    Hello there i have a lot of experince with suicide so let me just air my opinion and then you may do what you will with it.
    I say that it is, because no matter whom you are, or whether you know it or not, somone cares about you and if you care about them so little as to make them go through the pain of losing somone that they cared about, then yes i would say it is quite selfish.
    And this is the primary reason im still alive to talk about it, not necessarily by my own choice but there you have it from somone that has been there them self.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    This topic always opens up a can of worms.
    It is possible to look at suicide as an act of selfishness from a certain perspective.
    However, some of the posts above mine seem very narrow minded.

    Not everyone has a strong family support system to love them and coddle them when they feel like crap.
    Sometimes I feel it's even more selfish for family members/friends to try to stop someone from committing suicide (over something really huge, not just being bullied at school), because they don't want to feel like crap after that person kills themselves. Though with my response, there are many different things that come into play and stopping someone from killing themselves doesn't make you purely selfish, but it can be looked upon as such.

    And while there can "always be an answer", I sincerely doubt most of us, have gone through a time when we've really hit our lowest point. If anyone of you, have and you're still alive today, I commend you, but you're live is yours and though killing yourself can be "selfish", everyone has their breaking point.
