Not because death in itself is such a sad thing. Death happens to everyone eventually. The sad part is that life is so beautiful. So complex. And to get to the point of suicide, somebody has to get to the point of losing the ability to see that. I can't even imagine.

No highdea I've read so far. In order to contemplate suicide, not the physical nor the mental is the foundation for such an issue. The very soul itself has to have become damaged.

I disagree. Suicide is often a healthy soul trying to escape an unhealthy body or toxic situation.

I'd hate to disagree but I've contemplated suicide since the age of fourteen and im 23 now, never would something as complex as life or the soul have such an easy solution. People can make you hate yourself and thats not healthy for the mind, body, or soul, yu say it as if yge soul could never be unhealthy which i cant bring myself to believe. Not trying to be rude, i just know exactly how it is to think about suicide, and i know how it is to overcome it. Its a sickness of the mind, body, and soul cause by external factors.

ever hear of harikiri? seppuku? ritual suicide?

i have also been suicidal before. it was a severe thing when i was in and right after high school. it isn't fun, but intervening and trying to force someone to be hopeful for their own future is brutal. in fact, it's probably one of the worst things to do. you can only help them if they come to you, otherwise you're smothering them, and the only thing they'll be doing is trying to get away from you.

you say life is precious, but so is death. life can be Hell. in fact, Hell only exists in life, because death has no emotional/mental/physical dynamics... what can someone do if they can't escape the Hell that they've been pushed into by other people? death can be a release from this Hell... i will never condone suicide as a possible resolution to any problem, but all i'm saying is that it's understandable, and not really as pitiful as most people perceive it to be. it is a sickness (for lack of a better word), but there's never just one single cure for everyone. to a lot of people, suicide is the cure. it is almost never the drama-queen seeking attention scenario that is played up by the mainstream media.

Very good answer.
I don't think it's external factors for everyone, not in the slightest.
A deficiency in Serotonin is very powerful. That is not external at all.
Not saying external factors aren't part of the situation, I just think your biology is what determines if you can handle those external factors.

Good point, doktor...soul wants to escape. That simple.

It could be something as simple as someone trying to escape from intractable, insurmountable physical pain. This isn't emotional pain from depression, loss, insecurities, etc. This is the pain from an injury or something physical someone may have. When you have something that hurts so bad, it stops life as you know it in its tracks, it will make you think of some deep dark crazy shit. Especially when you've tried everything medically possible and it won't stop. You get desperate for relief, so desperate that you'll do anything to make it stop. I'm living proof that you can overcome something so painful. I have trigeminal neuralgia, also known as the suicide disease (look it up, I'm not making this up). I don't agree with that nickname for it in the least bit. As there have been no studies to track the suicide rates amongst us. Having that associated with the disease automatically puts the idea in their heads that there's no other way out, but that's a discussion for another day. My point is my soul was fine. It was my body that wasn't. I wanted out. I wanted the pain to stop. But I didn't do it. I fought and fought until I knew I was going to be ok.

I've tried suicide. I believed life was beautiful, the world was beautiful, but I simply couldn't see my future being bright. I couldn't see a light in the darkness. The world is beautiful, and full of life. But sometimes you get buried, and can't see it. Whether it's the rubble of a crumbling life burying you, or mental illness pulling you down a hole, or anything else that covers your soul's eye.

Suicide is never a solution to a problem. Problem was created to solve and every problem has solution. Just enjoy your life no matter what.

wow I miss this site. so much has changed for me since I was last on here. anyways, on the idea, I can see that life as a whole is beautiful, and I hold on in hopes that mine will one day be beautiful, but it's hard. hopelessness piles onto itself, you dig and dig and when you look up you're in an inescapable hole. you want to go simply for relief from existence, but you can't for fear of hurting your loved ones too badly. that place of wanting to go and knowing the consequences would be too much for others to bear is a real bitch.

What's even sadder is that people would create a situation in which someone would want to do that and then try and justify it.

ive been very close to committing suicide several times. in my opinion and from personal experience the thoughts of suicide are from trying to escape a situation that seems unescapable. My advise to you or a person that is starting to feel signs of depression/anxiety is to open up to everyone even if they judge you. lifes to short and the only way to live is to express yourself and be open minded. never hold things in i beg of you. there is nothing worse then feeling you have things to say and not be able to say them.

Brave and strong people o not commit Suicide. It is an act of weak and coward people. Brave people always prefer to face the circumstances rather than avoiding them. Cheap Taxi Haywards Heath TO Gatwick Airport
