Why Would Anyone Kill Themself?
Just got into a heavy discussion about a local death. Appears to be suicide, but there's an investigation going on. 22 year old gal, had everything going for her in her life, loved by evreyone, suddenly takes her own life in the back of her boyfriends semi-cab. No arrests. But what could drive such a lovely girl to call it quits so early in life?

It's possible she didn't feel good about herself.

Maybe had broken up with her boyfriend, or they just got into a huge fight.

Sometimes, people see themselves as a failure if they haven't met certain goals or if they have no direction.

I'm sorry for her and her family.

Re: Why Would Anyone Kill Themself?
Sorry to hear the sad news.

Maybe she was suffering from depression or some other condition. She may have been in alot of pain. Some are really good at covering the pain.

The following may sound mean. I don't mean it that way. It is just an observation on some human behavior. I think some people do it to punish others. Because in the end, suicide really causes alot of pain to those left behind.

Conversely, maybe it wasn't suicide.

Again, I'm sorry for the loss to your community.

Probably something behind the scenes going on in that poor childs life. In any case, Younger Me had suicidal thoughts years ago, but you just keep living and realize ups and downs and injustices occur in life...life is not fair, and living is not for the weak or faint of heart. I look back on myself and wonder why I considered suicide. Nothing in life is ever that serious. If you still breathing, there is hope and a chance to overcome. I wish more people understood the power we possess.

 Quoting: SubarcticBeef


That's an outsider's subjective view. Who knows what was going on in her head?

Life can beat the shit out of you, I sometimes think that if you have the means available, it wouldn't be so hard to kiss this existence goodbye.

From what I hear, she was employed as a child care professional and she was just out celebrating her birthday the night before. Maybe alcohol had something to do with it, or maybe not.

I find it really strange that some people can't fathom killing themselves; that some people find suicide to be some strange mystery. It's really not that hard to comprehend, especially if you believe in an afterlife. Or, really, even if you don't.

Re: Why Would Anyone Kill Themself?
Sometimes suicide is an impulse. My husband's ex-wife killed herself after a bad argument with her family about her new boyfriend and their drug use, leaving our nine-year-old motherless.

For months we thought how stupid, selfish and hurtful it was to do that to that little boy she loved so much. She just snapped and lost it I guess.

I am a financially stable, healthy 28 year old man, and I nearly did it about four years ago. I took an obscene amount of pills and sat with a pistol in my mouth for a little while, before realizing it probably wasn't a good idea. The reasons would take pages to explain, but anyone can get to that point, I think. A great benefit of getting through it, to me at least, has been the complete freedom that being at that point gives you. You can always refer to that moment and understand that anything that may be bothering you really isn't that big of a deal.

Drugs? Maybe she had been taking one of those prescription drugs that have been in the news lately that make people suicidal.

Whatever the cause was it is a tragedy for a young person to take their life.

You'll have to use your imagination, judge her feelings from the inside, and sort of empathetically experience her reality from an internal point of view. Psychology doesn't fully understand this level of empathy yet, or even most of humanity for that matter. But once you do, you will start to realize that suicide has a deep emotional link that can't be seen from an external point of view.

Re: Why Would Anyone Kill Themself?
Sometimes you just feel like you can't deal with life anymore, like there's no way out but to end it. I had that thought once, back about a year or so ago now. Seemed like everything was falling apart around me, grades were slipping, had lost the girl I thought was to be my wife of my own doing, was just a bad time for me. I never did actually attempt to off myself (knew I couldn't go through with it), but I did think about it a little bit.
No one is perfect. A babe before walking will first stumble and fall many times but NEVER gives up until he succeeds.

Always remember, ultimately, to never follow any person's belief. Your relationship with God is between you and God.

If nothing else, remember this: religion = subservience, control and conformity, the same template as EVERY government

"Most believers would kill truth if truth threatened their religion." L. K. Washburn

"This crime called blasphemy was invented by priests for the purpose of defending doctrines not able to take care of themselves." Robert Ingersoll

"If anyone wants to know how God feels, it's a warm light as if the sun is poking through dark clouds and lifting your spirits with pure joy."

Yeah you just have to try and look at things from a perspective of knowing things will get better and that this too will pass. Like with the girl I talked about in my last post, at the time of the breakup of sorts (was never really a relationship, just a possible one), I was crushed beyond belief. I didn't know if I'd ever be able to get over it.

But as time went on, I was able to move forward, and as it turned out was for the best it didn't work out anyway, as we've both gone in different directions with our lives. I hardly even think about it anymore.

So while whatever you may be dealing with may suck at the time, it's not gonna be that way forever.
