some people really don't realize how hard it can be when you feel like you are constantly just hurting yourself and the ones around you just by not killing yourself. And some people call committing/ attempting suicide cowardly and selfish. They obviously think that causing and living in pain for longer is better than attempting to fix things by removing the problem, yourself. (suicidal part of me speaking from deep down in there)
I don`t mean to offend anyone, but in my opinion suicide is cowardly and causes a great deal of pain to the people that the person has left behind. Also, I think that if they had sorted out their own problems or consulted someone for help before it lead to depression it would not have lead to depression. I don`t particularly see it as selfish, just cowardly and not honourable. Besides, I see no reason not to keep on living despite terrible pain and sadness.
o-o I don't mean to sound bitchy but, no, it's not really. You really would have to look at it from their view and not how easy it would seem to you to get out of it. Not everyone is the same in the mind.
There's a lot of people that have tried everything to get help, the reality is; not everyone gives a damn. Not everyone manages to get that help they want or need all because some people can literally not be bothered with someone who is depressed just because they're not as bubbly and stuff that they may be. I've heard that 'I can't be bothered to deal with that' line from people I once called friends. That alone can be enough to discourage some from seeking help because it puts the whole 'if they don't care, who the hell else will' It tends to get worse when you really don't have anyone to help you and it feels like you're alone.
Some people will and can be stronger than others when it comes to it. Also, counselling and what not can be useless depending on how well you get seen to. Personally when I had gone through a bad time with thoughts and actual part self harm in the past, I was literally told I just had to go join a social club....That pissed me off, just a bit. Because I'm actually sociable already, how was a 'club' to help? I got the impression they didn't want to waste their time in helping me at all.
I keep on living despite the hell I've been through, and I try to help people that are feeling that lost myself.
Many people who attempt or actually do commit suicide have sought help, have seen therapists and counsellors but it hasn't helped. Sometime the pain becomes too much to bear and they feel that the only way to stop the pain they are causing loved ones is to end their lives.
When you think it's your only way out of the pain, how is it cowardly? People with depression (like me)don't see it as a way to make someone else hurt, that's part of the reason it's so hard for someone to decide, they see it more as getting away from the never ending pain and emptiness.People say it gets better but some people are just waiting for that to happen.
You don't get it. There are a lot of children, teens, and adults that commit suicide, and there all so very young. To commit suicide is not an easy decision, it goes against human nature, and it takes strength to say 'I really want to die'. For somebody to commit suicide, they'd have to go through A LOT.
not really no, i know the few times i tried it, i had suffered for years, pretty much my whole life, i saw it as a way out for me and a way to relieve my family and friends of the burden of my problems. also the idea of feeling nothing, after years of mental and physical pain, was absolutely brilliant. i welcomed the idea with open arms, as i had tried everything else and it had all failed. personally i think it is more pure desperation than actual cowardice. plus choosing to kill yourself isn't really an easy decision, most of the time people have to be incredibly desperate to even consider it let alone attempt it.
It is not cowardly. By the time someone gets to the point of suicide, they have suffered. They have tried and tried to make things better. They have begged for help and, if they got it, it didn't work. By the time a person commits suicide, they are exhausted and in a world of pain. The pain is not just mental, but it moves into physical. There is nothing they can see to stop the pain, as they have tried everything they can see available. They are tired of hurting the people they love. At that point, they get the strength to do one last thing to end it all. People say it is selfish. The suicidal don't see it that way. They see it as a release for everyone who has had to deal with their pain and the problems it has caused.
It comes to the point where being able to feel nothing, is the most beautiful thing to imagine. Their pain is too much for them to take on their own. Suicide isn't cowardly. Being suicidal and/or depressed is the worst to feel about yourself. It's something that no one should ever have to feel
nits when someone gets to thepoint they can't take it anymore, its not cowardly, its desparate and I hope nobdy has to feel the need to kill themselves but they do, there are people out there who can help them
