I've heard many people describe suicide as a "selfish" thing to do, and I don't think that it is fair. After all, the natural human disposition is to survive, and to go against that, someone must be feeling out of the norm - therefore, it's not fair to apply things objectively to them. That said, if someone was thinking clearly, then suicide would be selfish, but as anyone who would be thinking clearly wouldn't want to kill themselves, this wouldn't occur (with me so far?) Now, recently my suicidal feelings have been coming back. It's been getting to me really how lonely I really am, and how inadequate I am. I've been thinking of different methods, and even times and days I could do it. Thing is, I really do love my family, and I don't want any of them to walk in on my dead body and upset them massively. So I'm rational enough to not want to hurt my family in that way, but surely that means I'm rational enough to not want to hurt them by killing myself... yet I still do. So, am I selfish or not?
