It seems like a simple question, but with no simple answer. When do you know if things are beyond help, beyond fixing and you HAVE to commit suicide? People will say never to commit suicide no matter how "bad" it gets. How bad does it have to get before you are "allowed" to commit suicide? Just like there is euthanasia for people in some parts of the world (some parts of Europe I believe) suffering from a terminal illness like cancer. Are there any other criteria from which I can be allowed to die, barring capital punishment for committing a serious crime? How do I know if I haven't damaged my life beyond repair and so I will only endure constant pain and suffering for the rest of my life, and thus why I must commit suicide? How can I know if there is still hope for me and I can turn around and still live a happy life? There has to be a point where you are so pitiful, so miserable and pathetic that you have to be put down. I don't want to just breathe, if you have to live, you want to thrive and be happy, not just survive. I feel like right now, I just want to get life over with, just hurry up and let me die. I wish I could give someone else my life, someone more deserving since I'm not taking advantage of it. I know that my depression also plays a major role, it takes away all the positive things and only leaves me with bitterness, anger, hate, sadness, etc.
