I know this forum is pro-life and all and personally I would never advocate for anyone to commit suicide. Suicide has so much taboo around it, people may label you a quitter or say that you've given up. Sometimes family or friends will even blame someone else for your suicide. You can never know how it feels to walk in another else's shoes so to speak we only truly know our own pain. You can use your imagination and knowledge or life experiences to try to understand another's but in many cases their suffering is unique to them, making it very hard you someone to understand. You may hate or being distraught at family member or loved ones choice to commit suicide but can we really judge them for it? .....We sure can but at the end of the day a judgment is merely an opinion. I totally get the argument that suicide is a permanent solution to temporary problem. Although what if your problems are permanent? It's much easier to have hope and faith for someone else when you're not in their shoes. Thomas Szasz made me think of this. When I was on his wikipedia page. The birth control analogy does make sense. We don't tell someone they can't bring a life into this world so what gives us the right to prevent someone from ending their own life? If someone fails they will often be locked up against their will in a hospital like their some nutcase. Personally I'm totally against involuntary hospitalization it is inhumane. You will never know the full context of why someone does what they do. This girl I was talking to three years ago told me if I worried as much as you I would have killed myself a long time ago. I do tend to be a worrier. This was when overall my situation was much better then it is now. I basically had most people I come in to contact with when I opened up screw me over in some way shape or form. It's so sad I actually sometimes laugh to myself about it. The fact that some people must hate and despise me so much to treat me the way they did, when in reality I'm just a normal guy who's looking to be happy. I'm curious about any comments or opinions from you guys.
