pros: you’d get what you want, you’d be happy (i think) the pain would disappear.

cons: everyone who loved you would now feel pain.. some people may take there lives becuz they couldn’t live without you

Pros: I don’t think you’d be happy, but I think its likely you’d cease to exist and wouldn’t feel anything. Try remembering before you were born, it would be similar to that. 13.6 billion years passed by during that blackness known as before you were born. Keep in mind, this is my opinion.

Cons: you would hurt your family, friends, and anyone that knew you. You would be missing out on the rest of your life.

I think the cons greatly outweigh any pros.

Some of the cons:
– You’re giving up. Who knows what might have been?
– Many of those around you will be affected more than you think
– The world will lose a positive contributor to society
– The situations/people affecting you win. You lose your life. Not right.

FOR ME ONLY
Pro: I fulfill my one goal in life, save my mom money (if she hates spending money, then she does not have to pay for my college YAY!!!), give parents more time to focus on my brother, my brother can have my car since he crashed his recently, not have children, don’t grow old, give my clothes to those who need it, and end my life (something I wanted since I could think).

Con: my parents will be sad for some time and my brother might get more depressed (because I beat him too it! HA!), my “friends” might be sad if they find out; my religious aunt will be disappointed in me.

I was never meant to live, I have no ambitions. I basically died a long time ago.

PRO- You do not have to deal with anything anymore
CON- Everyone who ever came in contact with you, loved you or hated you will be left with what if’s and you will create a chain reaction suicide… it just takes time
PRO- You will be the center of attention for a year
CON- Everyone else will write you off within a year, and the only ones who will continue to mourn you will be those that you love dearly and that love you more then they show
PRO- You won’t have to pay taxes
CON- DEATH brings taxes on the living, so it’s kind of an asshole thing to do.

@conrad … not sure how your mom would feel “lucky” to not have to shell out for your college (over 4 years) when she has to come up with $8000 for a funeral in one shot … just sayin, it’s not as much of a “pro” as you’d think :/

budget dawg

CONRAD… I just read that suicide is your ONE GOAL IN LIFE? uhm… that’s really lame.
Try thinking a little harder about your goals and get a hobby. like do you just sit around waiting for an excuse to exit? I bet life is just so cruel to you with your comfortable life that just isn’t what you want it to be. Suicide must be your goal because you are TOO lazy to fix it.

Get outta here with that… RESET

@Dawg, I don’t want a funeral (going to include that in my note). Hell I don’t want to even go to my own graduation. I want to be cremated and as soon as my body has been burnt the ashes must be thrown into the winds, for I want nothing, not even my ashes, to remain. My college education would cost at least 100,000 dollars. My last 18 years was costly enough. Plus my mom is very hard working and can easily pay the expense to burn my body. She will have plenty for her retirement, especially since she won’t be paying for my college education. Plus once I have everything ready I might sell some of my items to help her. I have saved up 1000 dollars in cash and will surely have more by the time I am ready.
OK G4M3r9irl, I’m sorry my real goal was to graduate from high school (I have worked very hard to be in the top 5% of my class and have the respect of the valedictorian). But my wish is to die. I don’t have any goals. I don’t want to have a romantic companion, marry, have children, be my own boss, travel more, own expensive material items, etc. Yes, my decisions in life are very lame. My plan was never to succeed or lead a long exciting life. After so much rejection I do sit around (though I do occasionally try). However I do have a beautiful life! I have loving parents and friends. My precious home that I clean frequently (I plan on planting flower beds soon!). I have people I admire, people that admire me. I express my creativity often and life the life that makes me happy. I make people smile and laugh. I exercise and live a healthy lifestyle (while indulging in sweets occasionally). I make the most of my life. I can’t fix my brothers problems or my parents but I can support them (after praying and encouraging for 10 years my dad finally got a job! I’m so proud of him). I know it sounds odd but I have always been a pessimistic tired soul. When I was 6 my mom bought me a necklace with mercury in it and I used to think that if I drank it I would die (it was my little secret getaway). Now I know that you need to inhale mercury to be poisoned better but that’s not the point. The point is that I have tried out the living thing for almost two decades (fantasizing for at least a decade about dying) now and eventually there will come a point when it’s not that I don’t care anymore, I just can’t. I’m tired and I don’t want to know what it feels like to be 30 years tired, or 60 years tired, or 100 years tired (my grandma who is 98 is on anti-depressants). I have the “life for a long time” gene in my family and I don’t plan on fighting baby cancers for 50 years alone.
Sorry if I made you upset or jump to conclusions about me. PEACE!

Thanks for all of your input guys, although I think I could have gone without the back& forth between the few bloggers above.
All & all goodfeed back

pros: no more faking anything to reassure people/not burst their bubbles .. no more expectations .. no more having to experience life as a lost & confused soul .. no more search for glimpses of truth in a world full of illusions .. no more having to at times put my mind & heart into sthg only to meet failure

cons: sure, some people will be sad/angry/devastated etc .. but I don’t consider myself responsible for anyone’s well-being nor do I consider anyone responsible for mine

truthbetold 5/22/2012 - 7:53 pm

things I’d be missing out:

– a 9 to 5 (be stolen of your time to perform some creativity-lacking, repetitive task)
– the possibility of some severe accident with its consequences
– bring children to this world & fill their heads with beautiful lies (god this jesus that, to work = to be somebody, you’ll meet your other half one day etc)

excuse my inclination to sell pessimism to the community

conrad… You are young with what seems a great amount of potential to find what you love to do. Maybe you haven’t found it yet, but a bit of freedom after you graduate and you might actually find something that you love doing. Whether it be engineering or finance or gardening or working at a fish store or body building or something. I think you are a bit young to determine you have no goals. Personally I don’t think you have found them yet. Ultimately the decision is yours.

@conrad, i find you to be really interesting…haha, idk, id just like to talk to you.

and no one really knows what the hell happens when we die…examine all the different religions, for example. maybe we feel nothing, maybe we go to heaven, or hell, or are reincarnated. or maybe its 1000 x worse. maybe you’ll be punished in your next life for taking this one for granted. i dont know, but i feel more comforted by the idea of suicide and just having it in the back of my head so when i get overwhelmed i can tell myself there’s a way out. but i highly doubt id ever really do it, because there’s no way of knowing that it would get any better.

Pros: You wouldn’t have to do the washing up ever again, or worry about getting a job, or paying the rent.

Cons: You’d never taste a Shakeaway banana and magic stars milkshake ever again ):

All Pro- You never need worry about anything again .

Con- Fuck Everything if there’s any Afterlife.
