not sure why or what to do with that because it feels wrong to think that way
I feel more sorry for the loved ones they leave behind…
SpongeBob was my childhood friend.
I recently read this book and it gave me great comfort on death. Socrates said as he was getting poisoned “why are you crying? Now I get to die. Life was great. But now I get to see what death is like. Maybe it’s better than life? Or maybe my soul dies too which would be painless”. I liked that approach to death. I’ve always thought that way but cool how Socrates said it while he was dying. I don’t believe in hell but I believe a suicide would be painful. If you die of natural causes you just go up to heaven. If you die of suicide you have a terrible hangover and the transition from death to heaven is painful. That’s my “unusual belief”.
i know how it looks when you forget about your loved one
when you decide to commit suicide and when you are done with this world
maybe thats why i dont like "suiciders"
i dont want to feel like that ever again and they remind me of my previous life…
but thats so convinient isnt it?
I do feel for suicide victims and their family and friends.
I don’t think it’s an easy choice to make and it’s never made when a person is in their right mind.
I agree with @anon84763962 in that I don’t really look down on people who commit suicide for what they did. People who commit suicide are not usually in their right mind. When I was suicidal all that was on my brain was how much intense pain I was in. I wasn’t not able to think of anything else. In fact I was angry at my family for making me stay alive and face so much pain and suffering just so they could be happy.
It’s a very complicated matter. But once the person is dead, they’re dead, so that’s why I feel worse for those that were left behind, though I guess it is sad to lose a life to mental illness.
I think that most people that commit suicide is not because they want to die. It is because they are in so much pain and can not find any solution for it. My Dad committed suicide and I feel really bad for him, and the rest of my family.
Yeah I feel sorry for them. And for the ones they leave behind.
I’ve personally known 5 people who committed suicide. Yes, I feel very sorry for them.
Hey, no one expects you to be perfect. If you are not sorry that’s how you feel and that’s just the way it is. You don’t have to care for hurricane or earthquake deaths around the world, and you don’t have to care if people you don’t really know kill themselves.
I will say one thing though, I bet that if someone in your immediate family killed themselves you would feel sorry for them.
I think our government should spend the 10 million bucks it costs to kill a single impoverished Arab on resources for the over 20 military vets who take their lives everyday.
I feel sorry for them because I know what kind of pain they are in. I also feel sorry for their families and loved ones, for losing them.
was osama bin laden an “impoverished arab”? he was a saudi Sheik from a billionaire family.
That’s not a million dollar guy, that’s a trillion dollar guy. A lot of our foreign policy, or lack there of, create the conditions for enemy war fighter recruitment, for which a continuous healthy replenishment for over the past decade has cost this country tens of thousands of innocent American lives.
one of the best friends of my life committed suicide last year.i don’t feel sorry for him for doing the deed, i feel sorry he was in all the pain that caused him to do it. I wish i knew how bad he really was. We all didn’t see it coming. It’s a terrible loss when someone commits suicide thats why i will never do it no matter how bad i get. there is always hope
yes I grieve for those who take their own life. I almost did twice and I consider myself happy now and cry often when I’m happy because I realize I would never have been happy had I been successful trying to take my life. horrible mistake always in my book. suicide is a mistake.
Yes I do. Suicide happens because people are full of so much sadness, hatred, anger, confusion, that they feel trapped and that suicide is their way out. It’s just not true. So yes I very much feel sorry for people who commit suicide, their families, and friends, and love ones.
Someone very close to my family committed suicide just a month ago, and it’s really shocked my family. There is ways to fight depression, anxiety, mental illness, schizophrenia, etc. and suicide is not one of them.
I beg to differ that there are always ways out. I’ve gotten a pretty clear look at my reality these last few months and to be truthful, it doesn’t look good.
Life will never be the way it was supposed to before psychosis, that’s reason enough. But then you throw the meds on there, the breakthrough symptoms, the loss of years of life experiences, the isolation, missed opportunities. The promise of more hospitals and institutions if you don’t take your lousy medicine, and for me the reasons to stick around are getting fewer and fewer. I can’t even be around my own family anymore, it’s like the illness stole their son and brother right out from underneath them. I don’t even have a relationship with myself. Just doctors and counsellors. Like little Wayne says, I’d rather die on my feet than live on my knees. I’m living on my knees and there isn’t a god damned thing I can do about it!
