    To Die is 1 thing, but to Kill Yourself Is Selfish...

    Recently my mother & I had a discussion about suicide & people we knew who thought about it (including ourselves) or done it...

    Our conversation was leaning towards this:

    Is/was that person selfish, inconsiderate, a coward, & did he/she take the easy way out.??

    Was there a lack of faith/God &, if so does/did it make their decision any easier.??

    We didn't agree on everything each other was saying, so I would like to hear what the people on AO has to say...

    I think that it is a bit selfish but most people who will do it are suffering from mental or emotional problems that weren't addressed. A fath in god doesn't have anything to do with thoes issues.

    That is my mother talking: bringing faith/God into the conversation, but it did make some sense in what she was trying to say...

    I know when thinking about suicide that God is probably one of the last people you are thinking about, but/or he could be the first person...

    I brought faith/God into the mix cause he could be one of the main reasons why he/she didn't commit suicide or even ones' self...

    I asked does it make it any easier, if a person has lack of the presence of faith/God for the simple fact that the person doesn't/don't think of their well-being in the after life...

    For ex: I say I didn't kill myself cause I didn't want to go to hell, but if you don't have faith/God does it make a decision like that any easier.??

    Sometimes, faith is the reason people kill themselves. I've heard countless stories of Catholic people, who just so happen to be homosexual, killing themselves because it's against thier beliefs and they figure they're going to hell either way. (But most Catholics think they're going to hell no matter what the reason, it seems.)

    I personally think that suicide is the easy way out. That person couldn't deal with the hand dealt to him/her and tried to run away, so-to-speak. I will admit that in my hours of depression and anxiety--depending on the degree of the situation--I've considered it. But I'm no punk. I don't wanna take the easy way out. I decide every time that life is worth living through to the finish. Y'know, just to see how it pans out in the long run.

    Well lets see....

    first off Faith has nothing to do with this subject.(that is my belief)
    commiting suicide is selfish, the reason I say this is because the person who commits it. is not thinking about the loved ones that they are leaving behind...
    I can speak from experience as my aunt has tried many times, but I believe that it is just a cry for help...
    as for being a coward, I cannot say....

    Coming from a Catholic house, I've heard card brought into everything. If you do soemthing wrong..."you don't have faith"....if you are having problems "have some faith". When it comes to suicide, faith has nothing to do with it. I don't know if it's selfish. As long as they don't hurt anyone else in the matter then it would be okay. People die everyday. Killing yourself is no different then if you were killed by a drunk driver. The family and friends would just put the blame on something else.
