I hate it when people say “Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem”. That’s total bullshit.
Firstly, life is temporary in itself. If we die, we’re in eternal darkness and have no memory of our life, or even any consciousness. It’s all in vain, all for nothing. If you’reÂ a Christian, then you’d be in heaven with is supposed to be 100 000x better than life, so once again life is nothing compared to death.
Secondly, most people don’t commit suicide because ofÂ a temporary problem, it’s a constant mixture of problems that can’t be easily solved at all. Even if it is solved, it takes out a lot of time and money and effort. Then the ‘reward’ wouldn’t be much of a reward anymore. Also, there’s that constant pessemism and fear underlying that takes out everything you do. So, while suicide is ‘permanent’, it’s still a solution and for most of us, a very good one. After all, death is permanent and suicide is no different than being hit by a car or dying of cancer. In fact, it’s a lot better since you know it’s coming, you’re prepared for it and it’s quick and relatively painless.
