    Im sure any person saying its selfish wont think like that anymore once someone in their direct environment
    actually does it.

    What makes you so sure? You couldn't possibly know that they haven't. It hurts when someone you care about takes their own life. The anger that follows never goes away.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    What if the suicide is "consensual" in that your loved ones support your decision to end your life like those who are suffering from terminal illness, would that be selfishness? which as most of you define, is not taking into consideration the feelings of your loved ones when you end your life.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    Its selfish, but in a way, its a good way of traumatizing the people who made you feel bad if any.
    Its the easy way out, but I sure don't believe in an afterlife, so essentially, you would have nothing to worry about ever again.

    Then again, when I get depressed I just do drugs.
    And after that I get real angry.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    why yes it is.but the problem nowadays is that everyone looks at term SELFISH as a bad thing.which is dumb.to be selfish means to listen to yourself,to your needs,to your heart.and there is nothing wrong with that.if someone wants to commit suicide,it`s their choice,not anyone else`s.if the family or friends cant accept that then that`s their problem really

    Everyone is different, they react to it differently if they do things, like cut or whatever it's not cowardly, but then again that is my opinion.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    For those that said suicide is ok when there's no way out, may I remind you that there is a way out of everything. The only reason they choose to kill themselves are because they choose not to see the way out. To answer the thread, yes it is selfish: Do you know how much lives cost? Yes, you can buy a lot with that...

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    Well there can be loads and loads of debates over this. But yes it is kinda selfish.
    1.God gave you life and u have no right to take it.[This it a bit philosophical! ]
    2.When you attempt suicide,you run from your own self and you are like the biggest coward.
    3.Many people suffer worse than you but they still have HOPE alive in them.
    4.Such people are the ones who actually live their lives and are True achievers.
    5.One feels free which is false...you are acting selfish,Actually one feels nothing once dead.
    6.You get life only once to experience everything.once you dont have that you have nothing at all!!
    7.After watching Naruto,one must learn this though!!
    ^^^ This feels like a lecture. But thats all I feel conveyed in just 1 comment!! :ghehe:

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    Religious point of view:

    In Islam suicide is banned or 'Haraam'. This is a very selfish act and destructive not only for oneself but for others too. One who performs such is a big coward. I dont know what other religions say on this matter but Islam clearly states it Haram' and the one to perform it goes straight to hell. Also the terrorists who are doing suicidal bomb attacks are not Muslims and not even human biengs. Again this is a religious point of view some may have different view on this topic but according to me and Islam suicide is wrong in any circumstances.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    I believe suicide is a selfish action but can be with noble intent. If you commit the act while depressed ( over a girl/boy friend dumping you, losing a job, or stubbing your toe one first thing in the morning ) then it is choosing the easy path that takes away your pain and gives it to anyone who cared for you. However if a soldier dives onto a grenade to save his battle buddies from taking the full force of the explosion then his act is regarded as bravery rather than cowardliness. Situation and circumstance can change the perspective more often than not suicide is an option only considered by weak willed people who are too easily led in to the benefits of a long term solution to many of life's short term problems.

    However this is only my opinion and I hope it helps for what its worth.

    The ends of suicide is subjective; there is no right or wrong answer: just man categorizing properties to an element.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    Very much selfish in my opinion. If you're having a tough time, you see it through to the end. Life is a blessing, we're very fortunate to have it. Committing suicide basically completely disregards this blessing, and not only that, it makes the people close to you besides themselves with grief and suffering. If you're thinking about committing suicide, think about the people you care about. If you don't want them to suffer, then endure your own suffering to see all of you smiling at the end of it.

    Selfish or not, it should be only their decision. Trying to change their decision for your benefit is selfish.

    Uchiha Shisui suicided. Was it selfish? Hell no. It all depends on situation, if you have a family or not. However, if you're planing smh like that I'll give you an advice. Don't do that. I have thought about it once..

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    When a person commits suicide it's not simply because they're thinking about themselves. The people around them also aren't thinking about that person; at least until they've ended their life. Sure it's easy to pretend that isn't the case after the fact. Or maybe even to fool yourself into believing you've done everything possible before it happens. But it won't matter what you tell yourself once they're dead and gone.

    This thread casts the problem as a personal one when the issue is much more systemic. We've created a society that functions on the suffering of others; where we pretend that we are good people because we can't handle the reality. We pray to our gods for the health of others while money that could be spent on disease research goes toward yet another iPhone or lotto ticket. We demand peace and fairness while ignoring mass executions and pushing more money into the hands of the wealthy. We place our values in basal materialistic desires, rather than into cooperation and unity, despite the latter being more capable of sating the former. We pretend the problems we created were the machinations of some 3rd party. And worst of all: we pretend to understand what we'd much rather ignore.

    So whether or not it's a selfish act is irrelevant. That's a question and answer that doesn't fit the problem. But what is selfish is to condemn those who are gravely suffering and indeed those who have already died. If we were to afford them an ounce of relief instead of a pound of disdain then maybe - just maybe they wouldn't kill themselves.
