Sweet, what if he was related to u? What if he was ur husband? Or ur child? How would u honestly feel about ur opinion? And anti depressants actually can clear a persons mind up in order for them to get their affairs in order to complete the suicide. Some depressed people feel like living is a burden on other people. Like if they died everyone would be better off. Like living is selfish. I've been there, so I know. Killing oneself may seem selfish to u, because ur mentally healthy. To a sick person, dying will be a relief. It may not feel selfish. It feels selfless. Like, at least no one has to see me sad anymore. It's no point for me to be here if I'm just going to infect everyone around me with my negative attitude. Or, no one cares anyway. If anyone cared I wouldn't feel this way. Yes, depression is selfish, but a depressed person just doesn't see it that way. They're sick. I've been depressed so I can speak on depression. A teacher has taught, so they can speak on teaching. A track runner runs track, so they can speak on track. A Christian practices Christianity, so they can speak on Christ. A fat person is fat so they can speak on obesity. A black person can only speak about living as a black person. It's just one of those things. If you haven't been through it (Thank God, I believe ur a Christian, right? If not thank the universe or whatever deity u prefer), then of course u can't understand that perspective. Ur lucky. A piece of my soul is still healing and it happened a year ago. I, myself, can't even see things from that perspective anymore so I can completely understand why you can't see why he did it. But, if u don't take anything else from what I said, just know that he was sick and if he hadn't been sick, he wouldn't have taken his life. I respect ur opinion, but I hope u consider changing it a bit in the future. You r blessed and hopefully u never learn first hand why he took his own life.

I would feel bad that he did it. I would feel like I wasn't good enough and he couldn't trust me enough to confide in me. I would feel like my love wasn't enough to make him happy or keep him alive.

You couldn't think about u. You would have to think about them.

I used to believe that suicide was selfish until my brother told me how he tried to commit suicide multiple times.  When loved ones die, we mourn for ourselves.  We mourn because we will never be able to tell them we love them or to hold and caress. We mourn because of the words left unsaid and most of all we mourn because the sense of loss overwhelms us and all we can think about is how much we are going to miss them.  However, it is selfish of us to want someone to continue living when it isn't in their will to do so.  Unless the person has dependents, I don't see the act as selfish anymore. 




I stay saying this.  When folks talk about why it's wrong they always talk on how it affects them.  They don't even try to consider what the person may have been dealing with.  Yeah family may mourn but when u hear them talk...it's me, me, I, me.

As a suicide survivor, I have spent years thinking about this topic.  I don't think suicide is a selfish act, I think it is a self-absorbed act.  I don't think it has to do with anyone else, but more a person's thought suffocating them.  I think it also involves the inability to see the light at the end of the tunnel for what may be a very short period but still, we will never know.
