I've thought about suicide. I think everyone has, to be quite honest. I always ruled it out because I thought it was a pathetic way to go, or just a cowardly way to get through life. But mostly I decided not to because I couldn't bear the thought of what it would put the people I care about through.   
   
After reading this, I can't imagine anyone in their right mind would even entertain the thought of suicide seriously.

i consider suicide many times . it would be smooth , just step in a car and start it in a garage with sleeping pills . But then ...... i thought about my family , how they would react and live on without me . I would wreck their life just so i could stop mine ,it wasnt worth it .

I've had serious thoughts on it in the past, and you're right: I could never bring myself to actually do it because I would always think about my mom and everything she's been through. And the I would think about my absolute best friend. She lost her mom due to brain cancer when she was young. How would she feel if she lost her best friend too? No matter how cliche it sounds, my friends and family kept me here. I knew I couldn't hurt them like that.

After several suicidal thoughs as a teenager, I decided I would never kill myself because I would miss out on all the scientific advancements of the world.

I dont mind the thought of suicide, i dont fear death, i fear pain, and life is as much a pain as there is joy, infact, even more pain than joy, really, the way i think of it is as if its a game, because, really, it is, when you die, you log out, it doesnt pain you anymore, life is a game ive grown tired of, but i have a sheltered life, things given to me, what does a 16 year old know?

Well, really everything is up to interpretation. I mean yeah there is a lot of pain but there are people who have learned to shut pain off, in all senses of the word. Personally I don't think its that bad, the only kind of pain that bothers me is the pain that comes when I can't help people. For example I have an alcoholic brother who still hasn't gotten over my mom's death 4 years back. He just tries to escape his feelings with alcohol and is destroying his body in the process, but I can't help him unless he comes to me and wants to change. I think that if every person in the world realized that they have the potential to be amazing, the world would be a bit happier. And really, being happy doesn't take a whole lot, all you need to get started is a smile

Same anon here, came back to see if anyone decided to reply, and i admit, you have a real problem like not being able to help your brother who needs it, and i wish you well, but my point isnt that im saying "Im sad, my life is **** , so i dont care if i die" because my life isnt sad (well, ive no social life, but **** people, the internet is my home) so i wont act like it is, i just, dont see the joy everyone else sees in life, i dont think life is so much to be glad about. ill come back later to check, and again, best of luck with your brother, Jeff (if thats your real name) ^^.

Life can be glad or it can be sad or it can even make you mad....bad rhyme Life can be whatever you want it to be. It's all about what parts of it you pay attention Some people like to be sad and that's okay. I like glad so I make my life glad by finding and spending time with people that make me feel good and I try to change myself into a person that I would look up to, but that's just what I want. Life is full of all kinds of emotions and some people don't realize it because they only pay attention to a certain kind. This goes for the people who believe life is hell, people who believe its empty and the ignorant people that don't see pain. You can live your life how you want, no one else gets to decide that but it might help you to recognize that what you pay attention to, will change your outlook on everything. Also I just wanted to say that really my life isn't very hard. I think that anyone who has access to the internet probably doesn't have it a bad as they think they do.

I agree, probably everyone has. Honestly, The weird thing is for me that at my lowest point yet the only thing keeping me back was the hope that I could regain what I had lost, and If I killed myself then I never would have the chance. When your pride is shattered and your self tattered, your only valuable things in life taken, you find out what drives you. For me it was a longing that persists to this day, even if it is impossible to the point of madness, and the tiny, diamond hard shard of warrior spirit I forged in the corps. I am many things, but an Oathbreaker isn't one of them. And I've made promises. A promise is a promise, no matter how long. The last thing I said to her. And It doesn't matter who wants it to happen... you make an oath, you follow it. Dishonor is far, far worse for me than the depths of my pain.

You sir, are true, you are correct.
Suicide is for the weak, and the retched, doesn't matter if you ****** your life, and have no one who cares for you.


Live is rare.



Don't be selfish and take it away.

your statement has a flaw here.

For someone to suicide , they often don't have people they care about.

I care about my family, love my girlfriend but I still attempted 3 times, failed every time because somehow the pills don't work (puked several times), or I bounce on the pavement, and the thing I tied the rope to broke. I gave up trying because apparently something wants to keep me here, even if it is my unconscious self.

but yeah, I never got around to telling them what I was attempting, they just think I'm incredibly clumsy now.

The biggest reason I wouldn't be capable of suicide is because I would never have the balls to do it.
User avatar #121 to #24 - dantemp (09/10/2013) [-]
I never thought about it.
People that have families and do this **** are ******* ******** .

This comic left me in tears, I can only imagine what it will be for something like this to happen....

That's the point though, people considering suicide aren't in their right mind. If you think about it, suicide is an amazing feat of nature. It's completely against everything encoded in us, but a person can only take so much. I've considered suicide a few times, not really all that seriously, just a bit of teenage angst at the fact that no one talked to me, I was alone, and a girl I liked was totally dis-interested in me.

I then found someone, a girl that made me so happy, so happy that when she started abusing me and using me, I didn't care because it was so nice to feel loved by someone else other than family. We broke up two months ago roughly, and since then she's gone off in a long distance relationship with "A guy I thought I could never get, because he's so perfect"... That hurt me because of everything I did for her, everything I did to try and make her happy, even through her hitting me, yelling at me, and more... I missed feeling love like that, so I actually attempted suicide, I took a knife and held it to my throat. One thing stopped me.

My grandpa's voice came into my head, and told me that I was being a weakling, that no man worth their salt would ever do what I was trying to do, that there would be love again, that people would miss me...

My point here is that suicide requires a great amount of willpower to pull of on purpose, the only reason that willpower is put toward the person's own death, is because they're not in the right state of mind.

Sounds similar to what I had happen to me. Girlfriend wise, I had my first girlfriend and I broke up with her months and months ago now. Together for a little more then two years and while early she made me the happiest man she quickly made my life a roller coaster of emotions that made me feel ashamed for being a guy. She was constantly full of hate, easy to annoy and took out all her negative feelings on the people closest to her. Quickly old memories that I held so dear over many months, over a year became to feel like nothing. Almost losing their worth. She concentrated on her self happiness. When I went on holiday with my brother over seas for the first time in my life she tried to use it against me and guilt me. Saying I was a horrible person and 'leaving her behind and now she just wont have a holiday with me cause I already got one. It isn't fair'

In the end, with the help of my friends I broke up with her. I completely cut all communication with her from every source. In everyway, she is blocked. Deleted. Never to be seen again unless we run into eachother at somepoint which will happen. I do not care for her anymore. I hate her for what she did to me.

I have no idea what she is doing now. I don't know and don't care. All I know is the hell she put me through would either break me utterly or made me stronger. It made me stronger luckily, as no one has ever made me feel so happy and then over time make me hate everything in life and still march on.

Here and there (over years) I have considered it like you have in your example. But never gone as close. In the end, my biggest desire is to go through with things. I want to see how things play out infront of me. I do not wish to not only destroy myself but destroy everyone around me with such a selfish act. Especially since my old girlfriend used it to guilt me and emotional manipulate me so well for so long by saying she will kill herself

My ex was actually a lot like that... She'd try to guilt me into a lot, and she was never able to be pleased. We dated for a year and one month, and knew each other for 7 months before that. The fact that she changed like that just because we were together made me believe it was my fault.

She used to tell me that I raped her for things she consented to, that I treated her like dirt, and that she was nothing but nice to me. She told me that if I so much as spoke sternly to her, she'd feel threatened and start to cry, which she did cry. She told me if I grabbed her arm too tight it was abuse. It got to the point where if I didn't carry everything for her, and carry HER, then I was being a terrible boyfriend. Her reason for me having to do all this was because I abused her, and because she felt threatened by me raping her... And i was stupid enough to believe her. She sometimes kick me straight in the crotch, most times on accident, and she'd just leave the room till I got up by myself, very rarely would she stay nearby where she can be seen, and even rarer would she act like she cared.

Ironically, she'd hit, kick, slap, punch and even bite me. She even let her friends hit me, her excuse was that I deserved it. She stopped calling me by name by our 9th month, by then she just referred to me as "It". It wasn't all bad, sometimes she was nice, but there was a hell of a lot of crap. My ENTIRE family was completely against her, they told me I didn't see what she was doing to me, and I ignored them.

She's now off with that guy that she thinks is so perfect, and yet she's still trying to be friendly with me, so I can carry her stuff. She tries to be my girlfriend still, without kissing me. It's actually a bit funny, cause not a single person I know, and even people I'm meeting that know this boy, think that they'll last very long, and she's not helping that either. I can tell you I'm not wasting my time there again, not when I'm treated so terribly.
