I have no intentions to commit suicide. Just to clear up the air. But just wanted to have a rational topic. Okay now letg me start.
Is suicide really selfish? It is really a good "cause" for someone to actually ponder it and carry it through? I know some people consider it a selfish act, or some other thing. But is it really? Yeah sure in some aspects you can say it's a permanent solution to a temporary problem. While I do agree on a lot of the discussion and opinions.
Say a person has a severe illness and is in so much agony and medicine isn't helping or any form of legal medicine or surgery can do about it. Someone who has depression but has a wife, a great job but just can't seem to really know how to deal with the issues or anything like that. I'm not talking about just emo shit about oh my boy/girlfriend broke up with me and I want to kill myself because of that. I don't mean that, because that's just pathetic.
Do you really think it's selfish for reasons like the above? Is it really selfish for the person that is trying to actually help? I mean, step in the person's shoes for a moment and understand for their point of view. Do you really think it's selfish of another person to actually want you to continuing living your life in agony so you don't commit suicide?
To ask someone to live their life in complete agony, I personally believe that it's selfish of myself just to keep that person around just to suffer to make myself happy.
Hör auf mir zu sagen, dass es in Ordnung ist. Ich glaube nicht jede Scheiße, die du mir sagst.
You have to have been suicidal to actually anwser this question in my eyes.
I have been, suicidal I mean. I went to a rough patch, got diagnosed with all kind of things over my head. 16 and my life wasn't mine anymore all of the sudden I was borderline, or autistic or schizophrenic so on so on.
On the point you think about killing yourself, you're not just thinking about 'ending the pain' you think you are worthless a burden, nobody wants you around, nobody cares about you being around, you're in the way and helpless. You can't do anything for anyone because you're just that bad.
I toke the step after hearing my parents fight about what to do with me, and my mom saying I wasn't her daughter anymore. At that point I felt I should take the burden of my parents, they didn't deserve all this trouble
And from what I gather this is one of the main reasons of suicide: Taking the burden from friends/family
He is in a constant state of stage fright, he says, because he never knows what part of his life he is going to have to act in next"
On a note it is selfish.
Because if you know how people are going to be affected, your just thinking of yourself.
On another note, suicide is a dark temptation.
A lot of people thinking of suicide think they are wanted by anyone, that they'd be better without them. This is not selfish.
In a sentence, Suicide is in & of itself, selfish & selfless.
i think suicide is a lil bit selfish, because just think of it this way. there is someone out there that might need you one day. to help them, lovethem, listen to them and save them. ive been pretty depressed recently. i almost finished it but then i thought ive got so many years left to do some thing that some one will appreciate. if no one wants you then theres almost certainly someone that needs you. Although i believe that no one should be afraidd to walk in the vally of death. i have an im stronger for it.
It's selfish to let someone live in pain because you might need said person, so from this point of view, both are selfish, though I don't see anything wrong with that. We are born selfish and it's normal to a certain extent.
