Suicide is a SELFISH Act

Suicide is a selfish act. No reason is valid enough to justify such action. Just this morning, my grandma told us that a lady neighbor died, actually killed herself. It was told that she took in a silver cleaner solution. She was in comatose for several minutes in the hospital but later died. It was an awful news. We were happily eating that time. After hearing it, I lost my appetite.

Suicide is a decision. It is a personal choice. A part of me is telling me that our neighbor chose to take away her life and that we can't do anything about it. It was her decision to die. Reviving her would mean violating her right to self-decision. Then, I asked myself, why should they try to save her if at the first place, she's the one who wanted to cease her own life? But at a second thought, I realized that we are also responsible of others. It is also our duty to protect others' life. She may have decided to quit her existence but it doesn't mean that we have to tolerate it and just let it happen.

I am not happy on what happened to her. I was teary when I heard the news. She actually always come to our house. I can still remember everyday she's talking to my mama. My mama is sad. I can really see it in her eyes. She lost a friend. I don't know if I will have a final look in her wake. I just want to remember her as someone who is happy and bubbly. I can't really imagine she did it. She did it because of jealousy. That disappoints me more.

She's gone now. She committed suicide. She was not thinking about what others may feel if she do it. But she still did. It was selfish. She only considered herself.

May she rest in peace.

It's the thought provoking post. Good post.
I have looked around...
all we judge the suicide and everywhere people talk the same about their duty to care for life of other... that's nice in funeral. Is the above not the answer to why does the growth of the suicides tends to increase?
Your post urged me to look at a mirror. What did I have done for to help my neighbor in the concrete?

hays... what makes it selfish is they don't care if people around them that loves them becomes miserable when they die. indifferent doesn't feel anything...

hays... i feel for you... suicide is not a very good way to die. you have no dignity in dying alone with yourself and with your own hands...

She her reasons may be valid but the end does not and will never justify the means.

I hope she rests in peace.
