I know I definitely would not commit suicide. Facing the trouble head-on is the only choice

I would never kill myself under any circumstances. I would like to avoid any crimes whatsoever, but I would like to think that I would just face the consequences of my actions. What I would ultimately do though is pray that everything works out and of course ask forgiveness. Like I said though, I never plan to be in that situation. I prefer to live my life the way that God wants me to and not worry about anything else.

Different people face trouble differently, and again it depends with the kind of problem. To avoid shame and low self-esteem some may decide on suicide and others would prefer exile.

I always have taken the punishment that I've earned. I have a strong sense of guilt that would eat at me and force me to come forward. I've also had friends who committed suicide and could never do that to my family.

I like being responsible of my actions. If I do something bad and I deserve punishment, so be it.

That's cowardly. If you can commit the crime you should be prepared to face the time.

I would never take the easiest way out. Most times some these ways we think are easy have the worst consequences.

I love myself too much to commit suicide. No matter how bad the situation is, I will face the music.

Depends on how bad the crime is. I'm a Christian though so I believe in Hell.Wouldn't say it's an easy way out.

Suicide show weakness and invites shame. No matter the crime committed be ready to face whatever punishment or shame. For none is comparable with suicide
