My Suicide Rant (revised)
Its a touchy subject it seems. People can say how great it is, but if you mention it being bad even once, youre labeled insensitive or evil. Funny that very few people see that as wrong. Its as if death is the new fad, and if you disagree, youre just not cool. Well, my friends, I think that this logic is off, and something needs to be done about it.
Ive decided to revamp, and repost my thoughts on this subject. Ive toned down a few parts, so as to not offend too many people (like I care), but it seems that no one can take anyone elses opinion and let them think what they want. I have just as much a right to protest this, as do those who praise it. If you dont like whats being presented, heres a warning. DO NOT READ. These are my thoughts, not yours, if you dont agree, thats fine. But dont expect me to feel sorry because you find what I feel to be not right.
Here is my rant on suicide:
It annoys me when I constantly hear people say that life sucks. I hear people say they have no reason to live, they have seen the worst, life is nothing more than suffering, and they should end it, via knife on arm, or some other method of stupidity. The really funny thing is, no one ever has any real reason as to why they think that their life is any worse than anyone elses. Of course, that doesnt matter, because a bad mark in school or a lost love at the age of 15 is plenty of reason to kill ones self. In case you didnt catch it, that was dripping with sarcasm.
Id like to hear one person give me a logical reason as to how suicide could be good. That will never happen, because there is no good reason to kill yourself. As much as people would like to believe there is, and that maybe there really is NO reason to go on, thats not the case. No one can tell me factually, that there is no reason to live. That death is better than life. Sure, we can guess, but guessing only counts when youre trying to be wrong. When someone can sit me down, look me in the eye, and give me one good reason that being dead is better than being alive, Ill never speak against it again. Until then, Ill continue.
What I believe, and I dont really care if you disagree because I wont change, is that suicide is weak. People try to argue this saying that suicide actually takes strength to go through with it, and all that jazz. Well, let me tell you something, as far as taking strength, no. Strength is staying strong, hence where the word comes from, and actually making it through life. Strength is not giving up when something goes wrong, and not trying to take a cheap way out of the one good thing we have. Weakness, on the other hand, is taking the easy way out. Weakness is giving up. Therefore, suicide is weak. Suicide is giving up on life. Suicide is not having the guts, not having the strength to overcome the obstacles that are set before each of us, and actually sticking with something. Sure, life may seem pointless at times, but what is death? I fail to see any point in that.
And now from the weakness, we go to the weak. The people who actually go through, or attempt to, with this atrocity. Now this is the part that will probably offend the most people. But Im saying it anyways. Those who commit, or attempt to commit suicide, are weak. The act is weak, and it takes an even weaker person to go through with it. I fail to see how someone can think that their life is so much worse than anyone elses that they have to pull a trigger and put an end to it. And I know, Ill hear countless stories of you dont know what Ive been through and you dont understand unless youve been there. Well, I do know what youve been through, and I do understand, because I have been there. I know what its like to feel that its all for nothing, yet I still sit here and say what I say. So again, suicide is weak, and the people who try it, are even weaker.
And thats that. My thoughts, for all of you to tear apart. Im waiting for someone to prove me wrong, please. Since apparently so many hated me after the first incarnation of this post, I want to know why, besides the obvious youre right, so I hate you because Im dumb of course.
