    I believe that there are certain circumstances in which it is acceptable to kill yourself. For instance, what about 9/11? The people that were on the top floors of the twin towers and had no chance of escaping were going to either die a long, tortuous death by burning to death or they could jump out of the building and die instantly. That's what many people did that day... Or what if you saw a little boy in the street about to get hit by a bus, and you knew your only chance of saving him was to run and push him out of the way, leaving you to be killed instantly by the impact of the crash?

    If I had a disease which I could no longer care for myself, then yes. Or, if I were in horrible pain with no end in site, then yes.

    I believe, if you are alive, it is because whatever God you believe in still has a purpose for you, you can still help someone, and that makes your existence worth something. Taking your own life, deciding when you die, I believe, is taking God's power from Him, and it will not be better for you on the other side. Wait it out, you never know what good and amazing thing is around the next corner.

    Not according to what I've read about people who have had "Near Death Experiences." They say they learned that there are two things that result in serious penalties: Suicide and Murder.

    Of course. Who else can decide if your quality of life is worth it or not, if not you.

    I do not believe in absolutes. That is, never 100%, as I know there are always some exception(s) that I hadn't thought about that pops up and may have a differing opinion. So I will state generally that, no, I do not believe suicide is ever a good option. Too many people are affected by suicide, and not just the deceased. Various lifelong outcomes too, such as grief and sorrow and, unfortunately, feelings of responsibility or of having "failed" the deceased. No, too much collateral damage with suicide.

    Having said all of that, I can imagine several scenarios where reconsideration on a case-by-case basis is called for. Physician-assisted suicide falls into that category also, but in those instances it's almost not like a true "suicide," as usually loved ones have been consulted and agree with the decision.

    But again, overall, I don't believe suicide is right.

    I had an Uncle who committed suicide over 40 years ago when he found out that he had terminal cancer and refused to put his family through the pain and suffering that was to come. I am not in favor of anyone committing suicide but in my Uncles cast in agree.

    I believe in physician assisted suicide. When a person has a terminal illness and there is no hope left for any quality of life, they should have the right to take their own life in as painless a way as possible.
    My grandfather died of cancer and we cared for him at home as he developed bedsores and slowly lost his mind, his memories, and himself to the cancer.

    Nope there is never a time! Life is too precious, no1 desrves for you to die for or vice versa, our soul is a gift from god and we should take care of it and thank him day and night for living... We should be grateful always.... Don't ever think like that hun...

    There is never a right time or a wrong time to commit suicide. A person who commits suicide is not in their right mind. There is always a solution to every problem. A sane person realizes this. A person who is not in their right mind believe that there is no alternative but to commit suicide. This is why we must be vigilant with our family and friends to make sure that they get counseling instead of committing suicide.

    That's not suicide. That is giving your life for another.

    Any act that knowingly ends you own life is still suicide.

    Of course there is. When the pain is unbearable and the prognosis is poor, why not? The quality of life is just as important to many of us as the quantity of life is to others.

    I can't get a job and have no money for the most basic needs. Everyone assumes I'll be
    fine because I'm smart and attractive but that's not the logistical reality of my life
    circumstances. I'm not depressed or responding to some exstitential agnst. My life
    situation is desperate. I'm backed against a wall. People who mean well have been
    totally insensitive to my reality. Don't make assumptions think through a person's
    actual circumstances instead of offering lazy platitudes. My demise is a loss and a
    tragic waste. Something is very wrong with a society that throws me away.I have work
    to do. I care about humanity despite being shut out and unwanted by society.I am over.

    Thank you you are very kind. I'm reminded (coming from NYC) of the cliched reaction
    many have when walking past a homeless person get a job. This person can't get a
    shower clean clothes a phone call or mail. Think through their actual logistical situation.

    Been there. Couldn't see the light at the end of the tunnel. Suicide was never in the picture. I would live on the streets before I would take my own life. I was two days away from living on the streets before I got a job. We all have to hang in there and keep going.

    NO you are not over!
    I won't pretend I know what your situation is or what you have been through and I won't offer you advice.
    I will tell you, I care, and I would hate to see someone who has a loving heart and a desire to help others lose her life.
    I don't know how or if I can help, but I am willing to listen and help you in any way I can. Please, feel free to contact me anytime.
