I think suicide IS selfish.

And yes I do understand that many people who make attempts or actually do take their own lives are severely mentally ill.

I still feel it is an ultimate selfish act, I don't judge people who have made attempts and I have a family member who has committed suicide.

I can't help but feel its very selfish. Especially if you have children or other loved ones depending on you.

I know people who are suicidal don't feel selfish but still, they usually are.

Agree or Disagree?

I disagree. A suicidal person truly believes that the world would be better off without them. I'm not going to judge someone for something that I personally can't relate to.

I have several friends who are adamant that is isn't selfish at all but I just cannot agree. I don't want to disagree publicly with them so I posted here instead.

Quoting Anonymous 2: It's very selfish.

It is. I get it if someone is in pain and dying though. To me it's a personal choice. But it sucks for everyone you leave behind to deal with your shit. Especially if their family can't get life insurance since they did it themselves. Not all policies are like that though.

I think the people who are around these people and don't help are selfish

You're right that in the moment that person doesn't feel selfish (and I am not judging at all) but it really is.
