i also have that chemical imbalance that makes it all the harder some days. Im taking the strongest medication they have and sometimes that doesnt help, why generally im a happy person theres just those days.
Ive also had this since i was a child along with bi-polar, so when people tell me in the wrong for something ive had a problem with for a long time,and im just a deperate emo kid, its understandable why i would be offened at times. Its also always nice to have people take it seriously and not just blow me off.
Anyway that a good point, but in the old days it was better to kill yourself than be captured and all your posseions go to your captor. Then there are the people who abuse that and make it all into something thats not right, why it is better to stick it out and make life the most you can theres alot of people who think it would be better to just be gone, and out of the way instead of telling the same story over and over and be ignored about a serious problem that they have. and i agree it is a cowards way out, but when people tell you your just a dumb kid wanting attention.......well somethings just happen when it could have been helped
..........nothing is true, everything is permitted..........
Someone who is about to commit suicide,
but could you go thru it?
Can u build the courage to overdose knowing you may not wake up ever again?
To cut thru a major artery bleeding out, losing conciounsness while the blood melts away from your brain?
Could you really kill yourself and still think its an easy and cowardly way out?
Try it, tell me how easy it was.
People often talk thru their ass without
actually knowing the facts.
i cry inside for life anew i die each time im torn in two i live for earth and die for none along comes a god who will always bring peace and tranquility
Trust me Rook, I have been there several times as well as some of my friends and I can tell you that courage has nothing to do with it. It's your basick instink to servive and the thought of other people and how they will inevitibly feel if you go through with it is what provents people from succeding with the act the magority of the times. Those that succed are those deluded enough to shove that instink aside and the selfishness to end it no mater how hurt and torn their family and friends will feel about it. After what I have gone through and speeking with my friends about it and their experiance, there is no way in hell you can tell me it's because of courage. Courage would be trudging on and make an effort to turn your life around for the better. Now that is courage.

courage - Definition from the Merriam-Webster Online Dictionary)
To mentally over come the difficulty of actually commiting suicide, and knowing what you leave behind takes courage.
Courage does not discriminate no matter what the situation or morals that take place.
Morals and other ideals are debatable.
Nazi's had courage to stand up for what they believed in during WW2,
just becuase what they did wasnt right in the vast majority's views, does not discredit the courage it took to fight for what they believed in.
When you pull a trigger instinct to live does not kick in.
When your drowning or suffocating, instinct has time to kick in.
But the willpower to live, thats ultimately up to the person,
and not his or her instincts.
Your right, there is no way in hell i can tell you its becuase of "courage".
I wouldnt agree with that,
but i am telling you, it takes courage.
Let me ask you this, kamikazes commited suicide for their country.
Is that not courage?
People sacrifice their own lives for the benifit of others all the time.
Whatever way you look at it, those are valid suicides, whether it be by
an insecure teen, a nazi, or a hero, they all needed courage.
Now the motivation to power that courage would be another story.
Besides, dont forget some of those suicides are commited without suicide ideation,
but out of pure impulse that simply cannot be helped whether the person goin thru
it likes it or not.
my opinion about suicide... it's just wrong... we don't need any more people dying just because, there life sucks... But, i think people who plan 2 kill them self's... there just confused because, something must of happened in there life and they don't know how to solve there problem...

I do agree that it takes something to fight the basic instinct to live, although I wouldn't necessarily call it courage. Comparing suicidal teenagers (or persons of any age for that matter) to someone who would, say, run into a burning building trying to save someone else's life, knowing full well they could die doesn't really make sense. In one case, you have someone who is mainly concerned with the pain of living, and decides it isn't worth it; in the other you have someone that holds life sacred enough to possibly
give up their own for another.
