Suicide is an answer for weak people and sometimes in a moment of mental illness. I don't think that suicide is an answer

I have head a lot of people commiting suicide when faced with problems. However, i don't think this is the right thing to do as it doesn't solve any problems at all. Most important is sharing your problems with your close relatives and friends so that they may help you to make a decision.

Even though I have never known of someone who committed suicide, I am close to people with a history of mental illness who have admitted that committing suicide is the same as taking the easy way out. It is a sensitive issue that should be addressed with compassión, nevertheless, I would not kill myself because of an issue like those the parents were going through.

Suicide doesn't solve problems. But I can't judge people are undergoing really hard times because it is the only escape they can think of. It's a sad reality that some people commit suicide. I hope that they could have seen even just a little light in the darkness. Also, it ends their misery but it leaves scar to the people that cares about them.

No suicide is never an answer, although i've known two people who have commited suicide i don't rally think it is a solution. This may be supported by:

1. Things Change Over Time
Regardless of your situation, things do not stay the same. You may feel very bad today, but it won’t last forever. Remember this fact: Regardless of your current situation, everything changes over time. This includes your current situation. Nothing remains the same forever.

2. There Are Always Other Options... Always
You may feel lost and confused, but the answers to your specific problems are out there. The key is that you have to find the answers. The answers to your problem will not come to you. As mentioned before, the first step in finding the solution to your problem is to seek help from a qualified professional.

3. You Can’t Predict The Future
You are fearful, confused and do not know where to turn. You think that there is no hope for you. When you are in this situation, remember the 99 percent rule. The 99 percent rule states that that no one can predict the future with 100 percent certainty. Even if the thing that you are afraid of does happen, there are circumstances and factors that you can’t predict which can be used to your advantage. For instance, you miss the deadline for a project you have been working on for the last few months.

Everything you feared is coming true. Suddenly, your boss comes to your office and tells you that the deadline is extended and that he forgot to tell you the day before. This unknown factor changes everything. We may be 99 percent correct in predicting the future, but all it takes is for that 1 percent to make a world of difference.

4. Focus On The Facts of Your Situation and Not Your Thoughts
When people are depressed they rely on their fearful, depressing, and negative thoughts. That is a huge mistake. Your fearful thoughts are exaggerated and are not based on reality. When you are depressed, focus on the facts of your current situation and not on what you think. Do not assume anything regarding your current situation. Seek help from a professional immediately.

5. Go To The Hospital Immediately When Its That Bad
If things are so bad that you are unable to function, drop everything and go to your local hospital or crisis center immediately. The people there will take care of your situation right away.

6. No Situation Is Hopeless
Your loved ones, friends, relatives, God, mental health counselors, priests, ministers, etc. are all good sources of help. They are all willing to help you and they can make a difference, but you must be willing to take advantage of this help. Regardless of your situation, take advantage of the help that is around you. Remember: Every problem has a solution. You just have to find it.

Is suicide the answer? Depends on the question really ...

Overall I do not think that suicide is the best answer to escaping life's problems, but it is pretty effective. Excuse me for being crass, but suicide really is a bitch for those of us that are left behind.

The main issue I see with someone taking their own life, is that it is a decision rarely made with clarity. Working in mental health, I'd also like to reflect that it is best practice not to refer to it as "committing suicide", to take the legal and moral implications out of the act of taking your own life.

no I don't think that suicide is a answer, the problem remains in the same place they don't resolve from suicide. taking this terrible decision we only hurt our family members and take the wrong decision to go away from this life without fighting for things that we like, for members that we love, for our family and even for our life. in this life we have only one thing sure, DEATH and it's no good to travel very fast to arrange it...
