If you are constricted with a life of nothing but pain, agony, misery, loneliness and sorrow, if you know your life is never going to be a happy one, if you have no one, if you have nothing to live for, if you despise yourself and hate your decisions and actions, then that is when people commit suicide.
People give opinions on this thread like they know something, but if you never experienced true pain and agony that lasted for years and years without end or anything similiar with the same devastating end, then you have nothing to comment on here like you know, like you felt the same pain. It's not as easy as you might think, breaking out of that cage.
Not everybody is strong or self confident, or willful, people who are depressed and complementing suicide are usually fragile, broken and most of all, lost. If they truly have no one and their life seems over, then they will most likely commit suicide because nobody guided them to the right path or showed them the way. People commit suicide not because they want to die, but because they see it as their only way out, and sad but true that sometimes it really is the only way out.

This might not be the best argument I presented, since if I actually tried to reason with some people who think suicide is the "cowards way out" they will probably not listen at all, so why bother. If they refuse to open their eyes and listen, then I won't go out of my way to argue 20 pages long, but what I'm saying is if you weren't in those shoes, then you don't know, you don't know how it is, how your own world crumbles and everything seems for naught. You just simply don't know. You don't. End of story. Not everybody gets the comfort of a second chance in life.

i know how it felt, the pain, the agony, the misery, the loneliness (even if you are in a surounded by 1.000 peoples) and the sorrow. i wanted once to end my life to have some peace, to end the pain and to be in a better place. but i had luck, my mom helped me with her love, i got to another school and now i am still living.

Suicide is more than just a cry for help. It is a statement that SOMETHING NEEDS TO CHANGE.

Why should I get concerned with suicide? Well, I would know a lot about it. I'm 14 now, but when I was 13 (not that long ago) I had a close friend of mine who, infact, commit suicide next to our school.

Why did he do it? There's really no right awnser. As humans, we believe that because he commit suicide next to a school, then that school has problems with bullying or other things. But do we think about his/her family, grades, etc. There's no way to know why he/she would do it. They leave this world with no evidence.

I have thought about suicide myself. I dont plan on dying, and honestly, nobody really thinks about "Will I die tommorow?". We just go through our lives normally. Suicide is NOT a cowardly escape. It's a sign.

Suicide, or the act of killing yourself or giving consent to another to do the action, is only done by those who do not understand that "there is more." The Japanese tok their lives by the tradition of Bushido, in which they would kill themselves to keep them from being captured, which, in some cases was like the next sentence. Disgruntled people merely do it because they cannot realize how much they take for granted in life.

Looks like a blank sign then. Completely ambiguous, potentially representing any problem.

nobody really thinks about "Will I die tommorow?"

I certainly do, and I feel I'm a better person because of it. That way, I realize what matters and I do what I feel I need to without regrets. It's a lot more focused than "I really should have done ____, ___, and _____. Oh well, there's always tomorrow." Sometimes, there's not.

Obviously, some people do think about death, a lot. But that doesn't mean there aren't people out there that don't think a bout death. It's not necessarily a bad thing to not think about it, I rarely think about death until I deal with one. But it isn't necessarily bad.

Thank you EmpororPalpatine for clearing that up. It's just whenever the subject of suicide comes, it always makes me deal with a lot of stress, and I just have to speak up and say something. Anyway, thanks.

If you dont know why they commited suicide then it must've been a fast decision that didnt involve much thought or you werent very close.
I've had 2 people commit suicide that I knew, one person I barely knew so I dont know what the reason was, and the other did it because of gang problems.
I have thought of suicide, but it wasn't being thought of as an option, it was more a "what if". I was always taught that there is a way out of everything and to never give up so I never considered it an option.

What if by killing yourself you end up saving millions? Does it become ok then?
