I’ve heard this a few times from people now. “Suicide is the most selfish thing you can do.” It always comes from non-suicidal people, though. My sister popped that infamous line during my phone conversation with her last night, when I finally told her what I’d done Friday night.
I don’t see it. I see all of the miserable things here that drive people to suicide, and nobody cared when those people were being selfless or self-sacrificing, or just trying to please them. If it’s selfish, then it appears to be the one time in their existence when they thought of themselves. That’s not selfishness, that’s self-defense.
What do you think?
