I don't think suicide can ever be the answer to any problem. However major the problem is, there's always at least one person (but usually many) who care enough to help you with the problem.

suicide can never be the answer....well because after someone commits suicide that person will surely go to hell and doesn't gain anything....so suicide should never be the answer

Suicide is never the right answer. It's very selfish because it doesn't take into account the grief you will put your friends and family through. Nor will it ease your pain, because there are eternal implications whether a person believes in it or not.

Latest Review: "Hello, My Love" by Evy Journey

I have known someone who killed himself, a former boyfriend. I knew that he was depressed when we dated. I struggled with depression myself, plus I was really young; I just was not equipped to help him. We drifted apart and I had not seen him in almost ten years when it happened. Still, I felt remorse that I didn't do more to prevent it and angry that his family never took it seriously. I absolutely do not blame him or feel that he was selfish. I know that he just wanted the pain to stop. If you can't understand what that's like, consider yourself lucky. Mental illness is not a choice.

I believe that suicide is not the answer to solve all the problems in life.
There is more to life than thinking the thought of committing suicide. There are times in our lives that we feel depressed because of what the happenings in reality or being rejected by someone who is close in our hearts.

It's not easy to judge anything because the capacity to tolerate frustration and pain is different for each person. I've known at least two people who committed suicide who didn't really seem like the "self-killing" type.
