I've been thinking about it. Too much maybe. Anyone else?
*pushes you over the edge*
I'd never consider suicide. The bottom line is, no matter how bad I think things are, if I died, people would miss me.
I'm too selfish to do it.
I'd probably just fake my own death.
They get all the guilt....I get to keep living.
"human nature, innit?"
this thread was gonna be about the band suicide.
no matter how cool they are, i definately dont like them
you can't fully appreciate life.
I've been very close and having been there, I know I wouldn't do it.
To go through the process of understanding that you can only improve things if you're alive is positive and healthy.
People often say you should live every day as your last, but I believe that is a waste. Live every day as the first of the rest of your life.
although not for a while now. What it comes down to is the fact that if it all ended now, that's it, and in reality it'd be better to go on and find out if things could get better. I have no problem with feeling utterly depressed sometimes and hiding away, but those times do pass and there's always the occasional time where you feel genuinely happy to be alive. You might as well live through it, as it's really your only chance.
"If you haven't considered it
you can't fully appreciate life."
i.e. perhaps you need to consider not having something to appreciate its value.
and didn't put it well.
I just feel that the heights of joy can only be equal in intensity to the depths of despair you have experienced.
This is not to say you needed to have considered suicide, but that would certainly qualify as a trough of despair.
It is like 'adrenalin junkies' having to risk life and limb for a thrill. You feel more alive the closer to death you are.
really annoy me
but my oldest sister did it, so thinking about it is a constant. Wish it wasn't.
