About Suicide

I'd just like to make a point...

Chapter 1

Everyone knows about suicide. You've probably heard it on the news, or maybe you know someone who ended their life.
People say suicide is selfish. They say it's cowardly and that they don't care. They say "Think of your family, you would hurt them if you left".
What those people don't realize is that suicide is not cowardly. They don't get that someone who cuts, someone who starves themself, someone who takes their life, actually tried other methods first. A person doesn't just get called names for a week and shoots herself. They don't get tripped and go to a razor. They don't rip jeans and starve for a week.
These people, they've reached out before. Again, and again, and again. They've tried to get help. Then finally, they give up.
The people that are such jerks about suicide have absolutely no idea what it's like. They don't know what it's like to have no hope... To have every shred of self esteem ripped away from you like it was just a piece of tissue paper. A person who makes the desicion to end their own life in a last attempt to escape the everlasting pain, they don't believe anyone cares. That person believes that the world would be better off without them.
I'm not saying everyone who attempts suicide deserves special treatment. I'm saying they need to be understood. People need to stop the problem before the person dies.

So, to the people who wanna be rude about it: Cut it out. You don't know what it's like to have no hope. You have no right to judge. You're only gonna make that person feel like a bigger piece of crap. You probably don't wanna be the cause of someone's death, so don't contribute to the harsh words. If you have something mean to say, save it for your pillow.

Now that that's said, discuss. Talk about how pathetic I am for sticking up for suicidals. Yell at me for saying what hasn't been said, but what needed to be.
