I hate it when they call suicidal people “selfish”. A person that had to endure so much pain, and who is damaged enough to even consider taking away his own life is also insulted because he couldn’t see any other way out. Most depressive-suicidals don’t THINK anyone cares about them, they don’t think that people will actually suffer because of their death, they think their friends and family may even be reliefed when they find out. They think that they are taking a burden out of your LIFE. Can you even start to understand how terrible it must feel to think of yourself as a heavy burden for everyone, and see yourself as someone who is worthless, and in fact, damaging to people around you? Don’t say suicide is selfish, because it simply isn’t.
Side note: I’m clearly against romantization of suicide.
