What is your opinion on suicide?
Personally i think the only time it is condoneable is if you are suffering from a terminal illness that will cause you extreme pain before death over a long period or cause you to enter a vegetable state.
Outside of that there really is no excuse to be honest. There is always solutions to any problem, be it financial, emotional or first world millenial, and honestly if your solution is just to throw away the one life you were gifted with, then you did'nt deserve to be born in the first place.
Which i suppose would have the same outcome for you but suicide generally causes harm or trouble for other people too, making it also selfish and also hypocritical if your reason was no one cared about you, because you obviously didnt care about the feelings of whoever has to clear up your mess after either.

So, suicide is obviously a sensitive topic, and one that some folks may personally struggle with, or have struggled with in the past.
I do think this a topic worthy of discussion, however I just want people to know that I'm going to be keeping a fairly close eye on this thread. No matter what or how strongly you feel about this, let's make sure it stays about the ideas and not attacking each other.
Ultimately, if you can be said to be free, to have rights, suicide is your choice alone.
Whatever your reasons for it, that's your choice to make.
If we do not have that option, we cannot say we 'own' ourselves. We are not free. Another has ultimate authority over us, even if they allow us to do as we wish beyond that.
Fair. Now I'm not saying that you shouldn't try to talk someone out of it. Especially in the case of a younger person, I think it's totally justified to try and pull them back from the edge if they're in that state due to some sort of distress. I've done my fair share of just that and likely will again.
But you can only do so much. And sometimes the anguish is so horrific that it is almost cruel to force someone to continue in that state. As hard as it is, sometimes there's no solution. Not some terminal disease, but the demons some people wrestle with.
