    'Cept most people (yeah, speaking in generalities here, some cases are different) don't take their relatives' feelings into account and they make hasty decisions. They don't think about how their parents siblings and friends will suffer after they're gone. Committing suicide has pain that lasts for only a few seconds. Losing a loved one will leave a scar that lasts for life. Not taking such factors into consideration which will affect the people you love after you're gone is ultimately selfish.
    She flashed her boobs at a stranger, was stalked for a very long time and was also bullied by people at school. She made a video on yt before commiting suicide, that's why she became 'famous'.

    Bullied at school? Move schools or piss on their food at lunchtime

    Abused at home? Call the feds or put yourself up for foster care

    Cyber bullied? Delete your ****ing account, whether it be Facebook or whatever. Cyber bullying is the dumbest thing I've ever heard of. If you don't know what they're saying on the internet, it can't hurt you.

    Family member died? There will always be other family and if there isn't, start a family of your own.

    Raped? Put the prick behind bars, seek counceling and move the **** on.

    I completely understand how others can be affected however,everyone has individual rights and that also means one has the right to live or to die.No one person is overall responsible for another's actions.Or better yet ones feelings does not subseed the rights of another human being.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    to me it is not selfish or anything. I think its a way to avoid though. Aviod the problems, situations and paths to take. I do want to know. Is there anyone out there when they know someone has done suicide, how come their first question to it all is not ,"Why?"

    Thats my opnion

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    It's a complicated issue but yes for the most part it's a selfish act done while totally self absorbed with no thought or consideration for the pain and suffering those left to clean up afterwards experience. No matter how bad it seems waiting 24 hrs can show you it's not so bad after all... That said, I have been involved in two suicides of close friends where a severe stroke and the prospect of life in a nursing home in diapers made my friend find his own way to peace. The other after seeing his parents and sister suffer cruelly from cancer and die in horrific pain decided to cut to the chase and prevent his kids and friends from watching him suffer overdosed on Oxy... None of us liked it and it hurt terribly but we understood their decisions and prayed we never had to face such a decision in our life...

    The thread asks a question. I'm answering it and showing there's a way to solve everything. Suicide is not necessary. I guess it depends on how strong the persons' will is

    To me its a cowardly act , just an easy way out when things go wrong .......a person has to fight against those thoughts & believe in themselves . suicide has a weakness & is the person itself ....... #Lord labian

    where not talking about who's decision it is it's about whether it's selfish or not which it can be at times and not at other times

There's this weird social stigma going on with rape, making it hard for people (especially men) that have been raped to come out and say it, as if it's a mark of shame. Of course it mostly depends on where you live, but still, you're oversimplifying it way too much. Same with being abused at home. Kids who are abused get so mentally fucked up that they'd be too scared to do anything about it. You can't brush it off as if it's a matter of calling up the police >_>

    As for being bullied at school, most of the times kids that get bullied don't tell their parents/administrators, because they either won't care or because the kid thinks it will make it worse. I do think being bullied in school is nothing to commit suicide over, but it depends on how bad you're being bullied, I suppose.
    Like I said, it's a matter of will. If you're not strong enough to do anything about it, then the person is going to be stuck in their situation for a very long time.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    Suicide is an honorable act like Sepukku in Japan, only the Judaic Christian religions frown on it and yet there is no direct reference in scripture that suicide is a sin, let me all direct you to this essay by Schopenhauer on suicide http://ebooks.adelaide.edu.au/s/scho.../chapter3.html

    there is nothing in the world to which every mail has a more unassailable title than to his own life and person.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    *shrugs* There are so many reasons as to why it isn't selfish.

    - The person could of been mentally ill.

    - The person could be in danger of exposing government secrets (Prisoner of War)

    - The person could truly be suffering as far as life surroundings (Third World Countries)
