    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    "It's impossible to comprehend the anguish & hopelessness of someone who dies by their own hand. Something has gone wrong with their wiring. It is a physical illness. They are not selfish, or abandoning anyone. The images of people they love are impossible for them to conjure up. They cannot see us - they lack that, "normal", natural, functional wiring. We cannot comprehend the "aloneness" that they feel - family and friends who love them. I have no point of reference to understand the pain of a parent that has lost a child - I can try to imagine, but in imagining I still know it isn't real. You cannot imagine the heart and mind of a suicide. But know this - we were not created to take our own lives and if we do, and there is a heaven - I believe suicides get to be the first in line - they, among all of us deserve the love and compassion most of all."

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    In the end, it all boils down to the practices you subscribe to. In Christianity, suicide is considered to be murder without asking for forgiveness, because technically you have murdered yourself. In Afghanistan and Iraq, if you committed suicide via bomb and killed the enemy, you were rewarded. In ancient times, it was better for samurai to take their own life over the possibility of dishonor falling upon them, since honor was the most important thing. It all depends upon the individual's view and how what they put their faith in. As for atheists... I don't know, they probably consider it to be the cowards way out.

    Re: Is suicide a selfish act?

    If a live is being given for another then no. If the person can't comprehend what they are doing then no. Other than that it is selfish, cowardly, pathetic and hurts all of those connected. No matter how bad it can get there is always tomorrow or the next day so on. Suicide it seems is one of many ways that nature weeds out the weak.

    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.
