Where do you beleive people who have commited suicide go?

In a way I do. I believe there is a Higher Realm of existence where we will all eventually ascend to, but I believe in reincarnation over ascention. And as for "Hell," no, I don't believe there is a Lower Realm which we will ever inhabit, but I do belive there are lower realms. I simply don't believe that we have the ability to exist there.
As for people who commit suicide, I believe they reincarnate as do the rest of us.

We often forget that God is aware of everything. Our intentions, our actions, our state of mind. I take a great deal of comfort from this snippet from the Catechism
"We should not despair of the eternal salvation of persons who have taken their own lives. By ways known to him alone, God can provide the opportunity for salutary repentance. The Church prays for persons who have taken their own lives" (CCC 2283).

i don't know....i refrain from thinking where people are going to 'end up' because imo that's judging and that's a definite no no the way i look at things. so i'm not sure and any opinions either way haven't been very compelling so i plead ignorance lol.
