I don’t think it is a selfish act , many say it is selfish because you will left your family and friends behind and shit like that , but they don’t think at the fact that your friend or your family don’t live our shitty lives , they don’t have our pain , our future , because every human being is different . Bottom line , you do what you want with your life , your body , your soul and so on and no one should judge .

No > not in every case anyway.
There are people who suffer greatly in life… and sometimes the pain of their life can be too much for them to bear. If life gets like that… then I think a person has the right to end it peacefully.
We live in a society where people automatically say… suicide is a selfish act… but often people say that just because other people say it. But most of those people who say that > have not ever been in a place in life that is so painful that they cannot bear it anymore
I mean life can get really bad for some people Like really really bad.
There are a lot of bad pains in life. physical pain, soc ail pain, emotional pain and so forth… I truly believe that some people have it so bad in life.. that they are better off to just end it
Now, again I dont think that suicide is always the right choice for people
I truly believe that people should try to work out their problems in life and move on
BUT < if and when things get astronomically hard and painful…. I believe that some people just need to end it. I truly believe that.
Me I have tried to end my life several times… and well.. I wish I had been better at it.
I wish that I had succeeded
Next time I try I will get it right

^^^^ well said. not being selfish. I’ve been talking to one friend about what’s going on with and all he says is to perk up etc ?. only you understand you and what you’re going through and sometimes death is the better option sometimes it’s not. I worry about the sadness I’ll cause others by doing this but it’s better than struggling in anguish just to please others.

Yes, I think it is and there is nothing wrong with that. (I would hope that people would exhaust every possible option before doing it.)

What do we humans do that isn’t a selfish act? Even giving to others results in reward to ourselves, even if it’s just the good feeling we get. Those who wish to follow the path to elimination of ego and selfless living still begin with the desire to do so, and desire is selfish.
Maybe it makes more sense to ask how damaging or hurtful our suicide would be to others, instead of asking how selfish it is on our part. The answer is then going to vary greatly from person to person. Those on one side of the issue want us to believe we will devastate everyone who knows us. We want to believe we are a burden and everyone will be happy without us. The truth likely falls in between those extremes for almost everyone.

I think it is so selfish to ask someone to live solely for the others while this one is greatly suffering..SO SELFISH!

Suicide is a selfish act. You do it for personal reasons. Most people that kill themselves think about those they will hurt but decide to do it. That being said I live with a suicidal person and my 16 year old nephew killed himself in 2015. I see everyday how the pain is for a suicidal person. But remember suicide can accomplish nothing. You can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel if your dead. We all every human have felt pain and despair. But not all of us have felt the true desperation. We put way way to much stock into what others think of us. It’s taken me 40 plus years to not fucking care what anyone thinks of me. I am who I am and nobodies approval is needed. Sometimes we need to stop and embrace the moment. Remember fairytale are just that. Life is fucking hard. Happiness comes in spurts. Life isn’t always flowers and sunshine. Sometimes it’s hard to keep our heads above water. But we fight on another day. The young think that some fucking girl or boy can help them. Just to end up on the end of a noose because we put to much stock into someone else. People are people we hurt eachother. We feel bad. We feel joy. We feel. Just sit back relax and spiral out my friend.
