It’s Not Your Decision

[Warning: Potential trigger content]

It is ridiculous that people say suicide is selfish and that the person that commits suicide doesn’t think of the people they are leaving behind.

It is selfish of those people to think someone should continue living their life for other people when they are so unhappy. They are living for themselves NOT for you.

And you should think about how much time you actually spend with that person or reached out to that person. Why do they only matter after they are gone and not when they were alive. Quit calling it selfish and let the person do what’s right for them. We all should be allowed our decision whether we have lived enough or not.

Some people make this decision after lots of thought and decide they are done and that is THEIR choice. Some people have chosen this calmly and rationally, whether you want to believe that or not.

STORY CONTINUES BELOW

Maybe some people aren’t in the right place when they make that decision but if you are so mad they committed suicide, then you should have cared enough to be more present in their lives when they were alive.

If you choose to blame someone for that choice after they have died, then that is on you and you are only thinking of yourself because you never thought of them in the past.

Its not selfish choosing how to live or end your own life!

    I think people react with anger when they don’t understand. Mental health issues are a terrible thing to deal with. Suicide is a person’s rock bottom…their loved ones are reacting as grieving loved ones. Peoole deal with their grief in different ways.

    You are the only one responsible for your own happiness. To blame anything or anyone but yourself is selfish.

    Not happy? Do something about it as you and you alone have the power to change what “makes you happy”.

    Why people think life entitles them to some F’d up version of their perceived happiness while they put forth no effort I will never understand (mental health issues a side).

  5. I believe suicide is an easy way out
    Get help ,lots of resources out there,and against gods will,I have had a family member threaten about suicide many times,and that person has had more than enough help and support from family

  6. I agree with this post. Your body. Your choice. Some cultures think it is respectful. It doesn’t have to be full of shame. I had a family member who wanted desperatley to die and I told them they had my blessing.

  7. This is not okay….. committing suicide is wrong in so many ways and saying to someone it’s okay to want to kill urself is so wrong like so wrong……. it just means we are reaching out to u for help and trust me this is coming from me a person with 2 failed attempts of suicide once when I was 15 and 20. It’s taking over 15 years to get to where I am and happy!!! So all u people that think it’s okay to say ya go ahead and kill urself need more help than the people reaching out… give your bloody head a shake is this really what society is turning out to be selfish coldhearted ignorant sociopaths

    • You can’t speak for all situations girl. That lacks serious compasssion. What about assisted dying? We had a family member who had a medical death. It was beautiful.

    • I believe that anyone who has decided that they no longer want to continue living should have that choice. Whether it a mental disease or any other disease they are fighting. Who are you decide for anyone else what is right for them. For most people who decide to have an assisted suicide it allows that person to die with some dignity.

    At age 9 my dad died … when I was older I learned it was suicide.

    Just recently my friends sister hung herself. Her boyfriend and 2 younger children walked in to find her.

    A few years ago a very close friend of mine daughter committed suicide… she was found still alive and taken to hospital where her mother and father and younger brother sat for 48 hours by her bedside till doctors told them she had passed.

    Last year my mom and bestest friend in the world who I spoke to all the time and would have done anything for killed herself to be found in her bed by her 78 yr old roommate who tried to give her CPR and when he pushed down on her chest black shit came up and out.

    Last week my boyfriends mother walked into her brother in laws room to find him laying in bed. Later the police gave us 2 notes that were left in his pocket. One to his last living son of 3 telling him how sorry he was to leave and how he could no longer live with the pain every day from burying his 2 other sons one who hung himself few years ago and the other who got himself shot to death from the police just a month after my mom had left us. The other note was to his 2 roommate (his sister and friend of 25 years) it told them how they were to blame for him taking his life and such.

    SUCIDE IS NOT OK.

    I CAN’T EVEN EXPLAIN ON HOW MANY DIFFERNT LEVELS OF HOW IT IS NOT OK!

    I HAVE DEALT WITH SO MANY SUCIDES THAT SUICIDE OUT WEIGHS NATURAL DEATHS IN MY BLOOD LINE.

    IT NEVER GETS EASIER

    IF THEY PUT LOTS OF THOUGHT INTO LIKE MY UNCLE OR NO THOUGHT INTO IT LIKE MY DAD. IF THEY LEFT A NOTE LIKE MY MOM OR DIDNT LIKE MY FRIENDS SISTER. IF THEY WERE AND FELT ALONE LIKE OR NOT!

    SUICIDE MIGHT BE A CHOICE BUT BOT ALL CHOICES ARE OK AND THIS ONE IS NOT!

    LET ME REPEAT THAT … IT IS NOT OK!

    I am not asking anyone to live unhappy or sad but I am asking everyone to not let themselves die unhappy or sad!

    Do something… not kill yourself.
    Do something …. get help
    Do something …. talk
    Do something … make new friends
    Do something CUZ SOME ONE OUT THERE CARES I KNOW THEY DO cuz I am a complete stranger to you AND I CARE!
