    I just get so angry at times when elsewhere on the internet I hear of people saying they feel so depressed, they wish they were dead, etc. and then people will mock them, say that life is precious and beautiful and you'll go to hell if you die, blah blah blah.

    There's too many people out there that don't understand us depressed and suicidal people. The ONLY way they can understand is if they go through the crippling depression we face every day. I used to be like them but now realize how painful depression and suicide is. Its not our fault your life is so fucking perfect and peachy and ours is miserable. Sorry!

    And if there is a heaven or hell, I really hope those who commit suicide all of them go to heaven, they already went through hell on Earth, they don't need anymore pain and suffering. I don't care if you are a muderer and killed your self, you are not weak, not a coward, not selfish or pathetic, you were just overwhelmed by so much depression and nobody can understand that.

    Damn it, I'm pissed off about that.

    I have the deepest condolences for those who commit suicide and for their loved ones and family.

    We need to make more people open their eyes about depression and suicide. Too many depressed/sucidal people are just ignored, both the person suffering and society thinking it'll just go away, its a phase, he/she is just doing it for attention, etc.

    Basically, society wishes that depressed/suicidal people never existed, face it, we're a burden on them, our misery is transferred to them, our family and friends suffer when we are depressed and its even worse then when you have to hide your pain from everyone and smile.

    I agree with you on this. It annoys the hell out of me to see people to be so intolerant of anyone feeling like this. Some can single out someone based on their skin color or personal beliefs and the vast majority of people consider this wrong but for some reason a person's emotions is fair game for prejudice? How is that rational or productive? Ugh..

    That was kind of harsh, but I definetly agree. I can't stand it when people say, "You'll go to hell" or some other stuff like that.
     
  4. what if it's actually true though?!

    I really wish it wasn't true, but do we have any control over reality?!
    do we actually know ANYTHING ?!

    any fixed assumption is just self-deception :(
     
  5. If someone says something like "if you take your own life you'll go to hell" in more of a "difference of religion" way, then I understand that, even though it does sound a little harsh to our ears. If you're able to have a mature debate, or even agree to disagree, it's fine. However, what I can't stand, is if a person threatens their own life, and someone else has to stand up and say "oh, you're going to try that sob story, are you?" in a mocking, sarcastic tone. That's about the worst thing you can say, in my mind. Absolutly horrible. :no:

    How about when people know that you hurt and know that you suffer, but say "you have to do it yourself" (meaning live, job) and they expect some results [that you have not lived up to] and so they shut the door and cut all communication off.
    nice people, real nice.

    That is a disgusting thing to say. Absolutely despicable. :mad:

    i've actually had the above happen to me

    but what i'm really here to talk about in this thread is the religious aspects of this argument

    now i'm an athiest so it obviously doesnt bother me when people say you'll go to hell and for those of you who are religious, you have nothing to worry about

    this will sound hypocritical coming from an athiest but God loves all of his children and you always must remember that
