I believe in reincarnation via what i have researched throughout my life..
This is part of why I hold off on another suicide attempt..
I believe strongly that when a soul suicides that they are stuck either in a loop of the suicide, is stuck asking forgiveness to the people they have affected, or god yells at them like a little kid..
But I have also read of some NDE suicides that came out real positive...
But I dont know.. The odds on my getting a normal death after a suicide i think is low.. Unless god feels sorry for me then i might get a break, I do know that I will have to redo this bs over again but from a couple of suicides that I have read where they were reincarnated god gave them a helping hand of sorts... to make things a tad easier for them to get through thier lives..
Why do you ask?edit on 11/6/2010 by ThichHeaded because: (no reason given)

I dont know I didnt think that far ahead.. From what I understand.. souls who have suicided one to many times are supposedly put in a special area where they are grounded to think over why they suicided in the 1st place..
Kinda like getting grounded for something stupid that you have done..
But my fear is repeating the incident over and over again untill something breaks me out of it which can take along time.(granted I will not know wtf is going on because I will have no sense of time, but the thought of so much wasted time seems bad for me.)
I know know if I suicide and i assend right, god or some elders or something will yell at me for screwing up a good body they lent me to learn some lessons i was supposed to learn.. This is a thing i am afraid of also.. because I dont want to be yelled at for some stupid act i supposedly did..
Then they will tell me ask me why I did it and what can be done to do it again.. and then I will have to come back here and redo all this bs over again with some type of help they have given me.. Usually this takes 3 to 5 yrs, and usually withiin the same circle of people that i was with before.. like parents brother and sisters crap like that..
But what kinda life do I want... I do not know.. one without so much hate and greed i suppose...

Thanks for your reply.
First of all, I don't believe God would yell at you. Why would he want to add to your suffering? He teaches love and compassion.
But, I do think what kind of life you would choose for next time round is worth thinking some more about, because if you believe in reincarnation, I personally believe it can make a difference - knowing what we would choose, given that choice.
It's a bit like, ok, you are getting on the 'leaving' bit some thought. And that's a kind of self determination, so by the same token, where would your self determined next destination be, given the choice?
I don't mean thinking about what you might or might not be 'allowed' to do by God or anyone else, simply - when we get on a train it's good to have an idea of where we want to go next.
So far, I am getting the impression that you would like to be born into a different family - so, what would that family be like?
How would they treat you? How would they show their love? For sure, they wouldn't yell at you if you did something stupid! What world would it be in? This one? Another one, perhaps?

We don't KNOW any of the things that are being said here. All we KNOW, all we have for sure is NOW.
And you are squandering the one and only NOW you have, tolerating a very treatable illness. Depression.
What gains are you getting from your lifestyle of depression? What is good about it, that makes you maintain it, rather than changing it? Or are you too tired, too exhausted to try? Because exhaustion is one of the main symptoms of depression. Fatigue. Lethargy.
People have a desire to be out of pain. It's a DRIVE.
SO. Drive yourself to a doctor, and get some help and stop philosophizing about the reasons your life is so miserable. You have depression. As I said, it's a highly treatable disorder. Common and treatable.
Do yourself a favor, and treat it. What have you got to lose?

Do it...life would be so much better without self pitying fools like you in it. It is a cowards way out...rather than live and deal with thier problems, they would rather take the easy way out and not have to deal with anything. Guess what...SH*T HAPPENS..and there is not one person in this world that can claim thier life is perfect and has gone thier way every single moment of thier lives. People have dealt with worse and have succeeded time and time again no matter what came thier way. They did not give up and let the bad times beat them. You on the other hand are weak and pathetic and do not seem to care how your idiotic decision would affect anyone else...only how it would make it easier for YOU...SELFISH. If you insist on doing...I would supply anything you needed....just get it over with and stop whining about how bad your life is.

Suicide is natural selection at its finest. Less of the self absorbed, whining, "poor me" group. More space and resources for the rest of society. When you self terminate you should expect people will ridicule your memory, why would you care? Do you really think funerals are for the deceased?
I have had plenty of relatives suicide, they were idiots. They never saw those few pleasures we earn in life. Seeing our grand kids, being there to help guide the young through the experience hard won within our own lives. Even the few good things that life begrudgingly sends our way are being tossed aside by these people.
I can't say how "tough" these other peoples lives were or were not. I know that it has been my experience that the people killing themselves aren't worth the time it takes to think about them. Everybody's life is tough. Everybody's life is painful. Sure it would be great if it wasn't, but it's up to each one of us to take up the effort to change things. Imagine if Edison said, "Damn it's dark, I'll just kill myself, so I don't have to fall down in this dark world."
