I am so tired of people saying that their family/friends would be better off if they just killed themselves. Unless you go around raping or beating the shit out of people in your family, then they are most certainly NOT better off if you commit suicide. It's a self-indulgent, self-deceptive way of rationalizing committing suicide and it needs to stop. Someone may be depressed and feeling like a drain on family and friends, but everyone knows that the bigger drain would be if they had to go through the rest of their lives knowing that a loved one killed themselves and they could do nothing about it. So people, stop using the "my family would be better off" crap as an excuse to kill yourselves. The least you can do is be honest about your reasons and stop trying to make it sound like some altruistic gesture.
