Suicide is a selfish act.....totally against what I believe. To be selfish and kill yourself is a slap in the face to your loved ones. Its a cowardly
act. For anyone to commit such an act is pathetic in my opinion.
You really have no idea what some people go through , and you really aren't in any position to pass judgements on what is cowardly ,and what is
Yes and yes. A friend of mine recently took his life. The note he left was very vague, yet a few of his peers decided to call him a coward, after
he's dead, call him a coward. I dunno man, takes a lot of something to be able to do harm to yourself in some of the ways that are used. Bottom line
is just because you have dealt with issues of suicide in your life does not mean you are the judge all of suicide cases.
Back to the topic. I feel that everyone will be different when it comes to their tipping point. It's kind of like asking how much pain can you
tolerate, whether it be physical, emotional, spiritual etc. Everyone can take it to some degree. I myself have attempted when I was quite young.
Thankfully it did not succeed and I am happily married to a loving wife.
And for those that use the bible to justify a venomous attitude to those in utter despair... argh is all I have to say (on this site anyhow), arrrgh
(no tone, just plain argh....)
On another note I have a hunch deep inside that a startlingly high percentage of people (especially in the west) have entertained the idea and the
what ifs, of taking control of your final exit. No stats, no pics no links, no Phd. Just a feeling I get from the current state of my worldview . But
since the topic is controversial and really who would admit out loud, "Yea Tommy I'm kinda on the fence today, I just might off myself. Then again,
maybe not, we'll see next week."
I could very likely be wrong however and not know that everyone is on big pharma pills, therefore life is dandy with a 5 minute long list of side
