Talk to any person you know about suicide and 90% of them will say how selfish it is of a person to commit suicide. As if our lives are only for the comfort of other people. It will never matter our amount of suffering because obviously we are supposed to make our life choices solely on how someone else might feel. I can’t imagine the level of heartlessness and lack of empathy it takes to see someone in so much pain that they couldn’t live anymore and say, “Well what about me? How dare they because I exist and now I’m sad. They shoulda thought about me instead.”
Look life is like a cult. Do not take what they seriously. They have not even objectively thought about life and death.
"Suicide is selfish"
1)Suicide is the most stigmaitzied concept in society according to many experts. So most of the emotional reaction is due to stigma. Do you think you are responsible for this stigma? If so give me an example/explain why.
2) Society always says to do what is best for you as you are not your families property. Ie If you are trans and come out of the closest and it hurts your parents society does not say you should feel bad because it hurts your parents. So why would you be responsible in this case for emotional reaction etc? ie your not its an angelic standard
3)People are generally selfish not selfless
4)"suicide is selfish like argument" increases chances of suicide as a result of further increasing feelings of isolation, shame, etc rather than reducing it typically according to experts on the matter. It also makes it less likely a suicidal family member would open up to you. Ie if I was a family member feeling suicidal and I know you thought suicidal people were selfish etc why would I possibly tell you I was suicidal?
The fact is we know scientific literature overwhelmingly supports life is not as good most people think it is, death is set equal to tragic mostly due to stigma,(almost always regardless of what the person believes death is) ,suicide is the most stigmatized issue in society and use to be seen as respectable, we also know we have innate desire to survive. Due to these all bias etc it's painfully obvious, why most people do not view this topic objectively or rationally. To claim the average people views this rationally is simply absurd.
