Alright, to this date I have never understood why people get so worked up about someone else committing suicide. It may be people trying to prevent an actual suicide attempt, or even people being prescribed medications to supposidly sway them from suicide.

I've actually had the second example happen to me.., and I thought it was rediculous.

What is wrong with a person taking their own life if they want to? Clearly they don't want to be alive, so don't make them remain living.

A few reasons. 1: They could be mentally Ill. Ie. a bipolar person being low may have a perfectly brilliant life to go on living but not think they do. 2: The bible says killing yourself is a sin. I'm not chrsitian, but still. 3: It often seems like your screwed when you are actually not. If your wife has just left you and you lost all money gambling you may contemplate ending your life. But you still have family who loves you and friends who support and you could go on and become someone great.

4: Imagine someone close to you commits suicide. How would you feel?

I feel no sympathy towards those who want to commit suicide or actually commit suicide but i do for their family's and friends. Think about how much misery you are going to cause them for the rest of their lives or at least a good few years which may be a time of importance in their life, like exams or something else. It will affect them in the long term some way or another all because of one person who couldn't control their feelings and ask for help in some other way.

"Suicide is painless. It brings on many changes. And you can take it or leave it just the same" - MASH theme song.

Suicide is up to the individual. Yes, on one hand it is wrong because you could/would be affecting others that care about you AND perhaps you do have an emotional disorder that you can't help but could be someone who does very well for themselves. On the other hand, sometimes life just isn't worth living. If you can't help feeling the way you do because a chemical imbalance in your brain AND therapy and/or drugs don't help, then I think suicide may be a viable option. It's up to the individual to choose, not a religious book to decide for you or others who care about you.

While commiting Suicide may seem like a good idea at the time, it is never a good solution to any problem. A person who commits suicide is denying that there is any hope left for them. I think that's what freaks other people (unrelated people) out about it most, is that a person gave up hope. Someone saw no reason to live, and thier afraid they might not be as strong as they thought. A death is a sure way to draw attention, but it also makes us take stock in our own lives and how we live them. We all face similar hardships in life, and we all try to find ways to struggle through them. Letting someone commit suicide is like saying that it's ok to give up. Just remeber "Don't let the bastards win!"

Its a permanent solution to a temporary problem.

Deal with what ever your need to deal with, killing yourself to get out of something is the cowards way out

One joyous day is worth at least 2 bad days. If we have to go through the good and bad days so be it. However why let someone end their whole life just because at the moment they have a diagnosed illness of depression. Why would you do something so silly when it is cureable. AS a human race as a group of keen we can cure anyone's depression. Why let some one kill them self just because their head is OBVISOUSLY in the wrong place at that time ?

People can help these people , there isnt an end until you quit like a coward and let yourself go. Some people have to fight more emotional wars than others in life. I suggest talking more to these people, sharing.

These people who go through more.. often make amazing and beautiful parents who can relate with any ordeal and they have the respect of their adult keen for having been through as much as they have.

No one respects or admires someone who drowns because they are too lazy to swim but know how to do it.

Good gravy man, snap out of it. If you have any sort of problems in the future just pm me or something of the sort.
