10 Reasons Not to Commit Suicide

1.    DON’T GIVE UP

Quit, Lose, Surrender, Give Up…these words have negative connotations. Do you really want them to apply to you?

Are you really a quitter?

No?

Prove it.

Don’t end. Change.

So you have some terrible things going on in your life, most people do. It doesn’t mean you end your life, it means you endure, adapt, grow and in time…triumph.

2.    DON’T HURT YOUR LOVED ONES

Sure committing suicide is a difficult choice for you, but have you even stopped to think about how badly you’re going to hurt your loved ones? Family and friends are likely to be absolutely devastated and sure, not everyone has family or friends, but if you could visit your own funeral, you might be surprised to learn you have a few more than you thought.

Many loved ones will never understand your decision. It will haunt them forever. Many close to you are likely to blame themselves and think it’s somehow their fault.

Just remember, when you commit suicide, you’re not just removing yourself from your life, you’re also removing yourself from everyone else’s lives.

3.    THERE’S GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY

Sure change and improvement is difficult, but there’s almost never a situation that’s insurmountable. Can’t you see some possible way to triumph in the situation you’re in without giving up everything you were, are and will ever be?

If you can’t think of a way, maybe someone else can. You owe it to yourself and your loved ones to investigate all options. Suicide isn’t something to be taken lightly.
Suicide is the worst solution to a difficult situation.

4.    DON’T THROW OUT THE BABY WITH THE BATH WATER

Sure, taking your life may stop the misery, depression, loneliness and pain.

But don’t forget you’ll also be ending the bliss, happiness, love and pleasure…forever.

Is that really what you want? To end all the good things in your life and to eliminate all the amazing things you will experience in the future?

5.    DON’T LEAVE THAT IMPRESSION

In the wake of your suicide, you are likely to always be remembered as the one who gave up, the one who couldn’t hack it, the one who quit, the one who left their loved ones in the lurch.

Is that how you really want to be remembered?

6.    DON’T GIVE UP YOUR MOST PRECIOUS POSSESSION

You will probably never drive in a Ferrari or live in a 30-million-dollar mansion. You may never have a super-model for a wife, or a saint for a husband.

What you do have and will have for as long as you choose to keep it, is the most precious possession of all…your own…perfectly unique life.

Is it perfect? No, but then what is?

The goal isn’t to be perfect, it’s to live the best and most satisfying life you can.

7.    THERE ARE NO SECOND CHANCES

If it’s a big date and you choose the wrong movie, or an important anniversary and you choose the wrong restaurant, it sucks, but it’s not the end of the world. You choose something better the next time.

If you choose to take your life and realize that you’ve made a mistake in your final moment. There’s no re-do. There are no second chances. There is no next time.

Suicide is one mistake you can’t make up for and you can’t atone for.

8.    DON’T END THE STORY EARLY

When you watch television, read books, or watch movies, do you stop at the 25% mark? Do you stop in the middle? Do you stop 75% through?

Of course not! You know things usually get better at the end and you want to see the climax.

Your life is probably the same way. You don’t want to stop your life at the 75% mark.

Stories throw all their seemingly insurmountable obstacles at the hero around the 75% mark and it’s the hero’s chance to hang tough, impress and make the adventure all worthwhile. If you stop it before the hero has that chance, you ruin the story. You ruin the book.

Sure, when you really hate a book or find a movie boring, you might on the rarest of occasion stop early, because you can change this story for another more exciting one, but this story is special.

This is your story. And if you hate it, then do it, change it for a more exciting one, change your life into what you want it to be, because remember, this is the central story. You’re the hero. These are your obstacles. This is your adventure and this is your time to shine.

If you stop this story early, you don’t just ruin the story, you ruin your life.

Have no fear. No one said it would be easy, but then what hero ever impressed without great obstacles to overcome?

There can be no great heroes without great obstacles, just like many of the greatest people are products of the trials they’ve overcome.

This is your time to endure and become more than what you are.

9.    THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT

You may tell yourself the world is better off without you, or that your death won’t make any difference and no one will notice, but ideas are nonsense. Every life affects the entire universe, because everything is connected. Even if you spend your entire life in one room and never interact with other people, you’re having a tremendous effect on things, because you could’ve gone out and had a tremendous positive effect in the world. By not doing that, you’ve deprived the world of most of your influence and positivity.

If you doubt this, just read “The Butterfly Effect” in Logical Spiritualism Subjects.

Believe it or not, your life has a huge effect on everything. Taking your own life will send a tidal wave of loss and emptiness through The Butterfly Effect.

Do you really think you’ll benefit the universe by subtracting yourself from it? If you really set your mind to it, don’t you think you could have a positive effect on things?

If you want to have a positive effect on the universe, there’s almost no chance that you can do that by ending your own life and removing yourself from the endless equation.

10.    THERE ARE BETTER WAYS TO HURT PEOPLE

Finally, maybe you feel wronged. Maybe your goal really is to hurt those you feel have wronged you. Maybe you want to rattle their bars and wake them up. Maybe you want to fill them with regret for all the mistakes they’ve made.

First, there are better and more painful ways to hurt people, which don’t require the most costly sacrifice of your greatest possession.

Second, if the people really are so terrible, it’s possible that your sacrifice would backfire. Perhaps they really are just bad people and instead of sparking some tenderness, regret or sadness in them, your death will be easily ignored and easily forgotten. Perhaps a burden will even be lifted from their unapologetic shoulders. Do you really want to take that chance?

No. Stick it to them the best way possible. Live your life better than theirs and make them choke on their own jealousy.

Your time is better spent trying to make yourself happy than trying to make someone else sad.

Be good. Be better. Accomplish more. Be happier.

Just want to add, this list of empty platitudes can do more harm than good. You probably want to make suicidal people feel motivated but you;re doing the exact opposite. Now, I understand my case is different because I have a physical illness. My decision to kill myself is not impulsive. It's five years in the making and I've been planning carefully. I want to go with a peaceful mind and happy heart. Believe it or not, I appreciate the first 35 years of my life, the years before I got sick. I will die not with anger and bitterness anymore, but with gratitude for what I have and excitement for what's to come.

But it's different for a fragile depressed people. This list is more than enough to drive them to the edge because it's full of guilt-tripping and condescension. Do you think they aren't aware that they would hurt the people around them? Do you think they haven't tried to look for better ways? Do you think they didn't try to hope first, when hope is the kind of thing that pushes itself on to you even when you don't want it to?

These people need help for mental health, and also validation for their feelings. Feeling suicidal is part of the human experience. They shouldn't be made to feel bad for feeling that way. They should be understood, then helped.

1. DON’T GIVE UP
I’m a quitter, if being a quitter means finding peace from my chronic pain. I can't care about the names you call me when I'm in this much pain.
2. DON’T HURT YOUR LOVED ONES
My parents cry whenever they see me struggle with my illness. As for other people, they already dropped out on me because my illness limits what I can do.
3. THERE’S GOT TO BE A BETTER WAY
I went expensive specialists. They said there's no cure, just live with it. But I don't have access to medical marijuana or opioids because they're illegal where I am. I tried pharma meds but had to stop because of side effects.
4. DON’T THROW OUT THE BABY WITH THE BATH WATER
I’ve been in pain for five years now. I followed research news but looking at the current status, it would take at least 20 years before something can help me. Can’t wait 20 years. It's hard to pursue things that can make me happy when I’m in much pain.
5. DON’T LEAVE THAT IMPRESSION
If there’s nothing after death, I wouldn't exist, let alone care about what people think. If there's something after death, I’d be happy to be free from physical pain, and why would I be bothered with the trivialities of earth?
6. DON’T GIVE UP YOUR MOST PRECIOUS POSSESSION
I didn't ask to be born but I enjoyed my life before I got sick. But now I no longer enjoy my life. Why hold on to it? We tell people to give up unfulfilling jobs, toxic friends, unhealthy relationships. I’m doing the same thing with my life.
7. THERE ARE NO SECOND CHANCES
My illness ensured I don't have chances in life left. The past five years is hell, being in physical pain almost 24/7, plus emotional pain from trying to find pain relief. I'm not killing myself impulsively. I’ve been carefully planning my exit. I don't feel any regret, just peace.
8. DON’T END THE STORY EARLY
Many things are possible but not probable. I know when the odds are in my favor and when they aren’t. Also, quality is better than quantity. Some stories are too long, they would be better if edited properly.
9. THE BUTTERFLY EFFECT
My death can result in a great positive change. I don’t care either though because I'd be dead. I care only about my parents, and they'll understand. If they won't, I am in too much pain to live for others.
10. THERE ARE BETTER WAYS TO HURT PEOPLE
I don't plan to kill myself to hurt people. I love the few people I still have left in my life. I’m killing myself in spite of hurting them, because my body is hurting me so much.
Whyso - 10/4/2017 11:58:48 AM
I hate to do this, but theres easily many reasons to commit suicide and unless we change as a society, they will keep happening.

1) You're a depressed mess and no one wants to be "dragged down"). Youve seen it, no one wants a downer for a friend, everyone recommends leaving them behind as not to get dragged down. Well thats you.

2) Youre a burden to your family. With moderate to severe depression the sufferer often cannot hold down a job. What are you doing burdening your family? No ones offering real mental health help but blaming laziness and inability to cope with life and depression.

3) Negative Stigma. If word got out you are depressed or have a questionable gap in employment, it will be difficult to get a job. Once again, youre burdening your family. Keep trying but theres also five million other people searching for a job.

4) It will stay with you for the rest of your life. There's no magic cure here, even with medications and psychotherapy, the depressed negative thoughts will resurface and haunt you for the rest of your life. You'll be better but you wont seem as fully happy as the rest of the world.

5) Broken relationships. Did depression destroy what little relationships you had with your family or friends? Did they fail to understand or even care? Why even go on? The last support is gone. Even adults who find it difficult to make new friends are telling you to go make new friends IN YOUR DOWNER DEPRESSED STATE. Realistically whats going to happen more isolation or magically more friends? Try and fail and the depression comes back with a vegence.

6) Lack of healthcare access. Even prisoners get better healthcare... Maybe depressed people really dont deserve to live in this world. No one cares. Cant afford anti depressants? Cant even afford or get on a wait list for a therapist? Then have what little social support you have left tell you, you dont need pills, just feel better? Why are you always so down? Why cant you be a better person? Really what hope is left.

7) Short pain or long pain? This will cross every suicidal person mind, do I let this miserable existance that is a burden to everyone including society carry on with no guarantee of recovery or end it now and stop being a resource drain? Remember depression affects the ability to hold down a job.

Im not advocating suicide but I want people to do something about it. You cant expect someone who is irrationally depressed and suicidal to read this 10 reasons list and get better. There is a lack of healthcare resource for them. Do something before its too late.

Someone in a post down below stated that "suicide is wrong." In other words, the value judgment here is that it is immoral. This is a form of thought control, i.e. it is psychological manipulation. To my mind, suicide -- in itself -- is neither "right" nor "wrong." All problems surrounding a successful attempt (and certain unsuccessful ones, as well) mostly concern how other people will be affected by it. Also, if the attempt is a failed one, any residual damages to the person himself might also be viewed as a burden for others to deal with.
Eventually - 7/22/2017 10:38:48 PM
My only thought is that if you have obligations to others, including pets, then I think it is wrong to take your life under these circumstances. Otherwise than familial obligations, I see no reason not to commit suicide if one desires to do so, and that's regardless of the age of the person, since we all will die eventually, anyway.
Since I have no friends or family left, there is no hold up in that regard. I do, however, have a pet that I plan on bringing to the shelter beforehand. My method of choice is ratchet strap strangulation since pure helium for the exit bag method is now difficult to obtain. Eventually, I will commit suicide and I hope it will be sooner rather than later.

Sarah - 6/25/2017 12:20:16 AM
Well actually there's no loved one..and there's also no reason to live, no person to live for or no job to finish..there's nothing...I just feel that I've died years ago but the only difference between other dead people & me is that I'm not burried yet..The bigger problem is that I've heard about the paradise and hell and I'm afraid if they really exist, cause that way, even if I kill myself, I won't survive..
If there's anyone who can help me out, that's my telegram ID

I am so sorry you lost your mom ?? and that you have to endure bullying. My son was bullied and it changed his personality and how he interacted (withdrew from people) so I can relate somewhat to what you are going through. PLEASE talk to someone, anyone....keep searching out someone until you can find one who can help you....you shouldn't have to go through all this mental pain alone. I don't personally know you but I care..:sending hugs and hope

Those reasons aren't valid. 75 years from my death not a single soul will remember who I am. I'll just be another old picture in someones attic. Anyone who says I'm a quitter probably wouldn't have the balls to pull the trigger so their opinion is pointless. I am a free human being and part of that freedom is being able to end my life regardless of how it affects others. Only I know what really goes on in my life. Only I know who I am. I will have no regrets once I am dead. I will feel no pain.

Ilya - 12/4/2016 3:01:51 AM
Also keep in mind all the good things you can do in the future.

I was thinking of killing myself for 2 months until I helped a girl to get up when she fell.

If you will end your life, you are eliminating all the kind things you can do in the future.
Marsha - 11/25/2016 2:27:45 PM
Actually, I will argue your "certainty" about no second chances because you have nothing to base this on. Your site is obviously written from a perspective that cannot relate. My son has suffered depression his whole life. He had wonderful friends in the last few months, he always felt loved and he was an active participant in "life" and giving to others. One's decision to end their journey is no one else's business. The hurt that remains is ours to figure out and that is what "unattachment" is about. Nothing is permanent. Pain is inevitable, suffering is self-inflicted. It has been 2 months since he left, but I have not once blamed him nor have I blamed my pain on him or anyone. It is something that has been apart of the human psyche since the beginning of time. To say a life is cut short by suicide is ridiculous. How do you or I or anyone actually know the length that a life is "supposed to be?" This is a deeper philosophical discussion than "here are 10 reasons not to..." Sure you mean well, but your thoughts do not go nearly deep enough.

This is so stupid. If I had any loved ones, do you think I would be despairing? If I did it my body would lie there and rot, it would be at least 2 years until someone from the county showed up to evict me for not paying property taxes. Probably longer than that. I'd be nothing but an unclaimed skeleton in a paupers grave. All that suicide would do is speed up the inevitable
marcus - 9/30/2016 4:34:25 PM
"Albert Camus". Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy. "What is the Camusean alternative to suicide or hope? The answer is to live without escape and with integrity, in “revolt” and defiance, maintaining the tension intrinsic to human life" If you are reading this, you live.
so, it is not over. You may feel the battle is lost, but this feeling (this illusion) is the only defeat.
Look for your edge, battlefront where you can work on your rebellion. Thinking we are obligated to choose life or death either way is incorrect. Let your suicidal attitude instead remind you that you are so brave you no longer fear death. If you can remember this rebellious stance, nothing will defeat you. nothing to fear but fear itself ;) <3 Also, Michael age is nothing. The most empowering you can do for others has nothing to do with age or vanity. There is a lot that modern society/government and capitalist industry leaves unhandled, and in many cases even suppresses. The world is facing immense lack of proper horticulture & eco-activity. Get into organic gardening/farming and teach others. Maybe even grow the forbidden sacred mushrooms ;)
michael - 9/3/2016 8:32:03 PM
So many of these homilies are meant for young people. But if you are past middle-age, have worked hard to achieve something and failed ("follow your bliss" anyone?), have since been laid off three times and lost your home, and have no children or spouse who's feelings will be hurt, and your other family and relatives have all passed away, and your financial future is one of renting rooms and Medicare… Suicide is the only option.

I think about suicide every day. I know it's wrong but I can't stop thinking about it. I know if I committed suicide my daughter would never get over this so I keep taking one day at a time. The pain of being old & now divorced is more than I can take no one will want an older woman, who is over weight and has many physical problems. That is why my husband left. He said he didn't want to be a caregiver for the rest of his life. My physical ailments cause me a lot of pain and I can't find a MD who will give me enough pain medication because I could get addicted to them. My mental & physical pain are more than I can take. I'm stuck I love my daughter and would never hurt her but I just want out of this HELL I call my life. Just needed to talk about it. I am afraid if I talk to anyone I'm going to be sent to an institution for a long time. That would be worse than the pain I life with everyday. I'm a Rubic cube and no one including myself can figure me out. I see a shrink but have not had a breakthrough yet. So I will keep on keeping on until it is unbearable. Thanks for the ear. Wishing the best to all who feel this everyday. Hope this makes sense I cannot get to the top to reread this so forgive any mistakes Peace and Love, I am done for today. I talk too much, sorry to all.

2. They will forget and I won't be a thought in 30 years anyway.
3. Unless you know the answer to life, I doubt it.
4. Positive emotions, I couldn't tell you the last time I actually had those.
5. Who cares about that? FUCK EVERYONE ELSE, how I am remembered is of minor importance to me.
6. I have high value in possessions, my $1,400 computer could burn in a fire and I would simply startover from scratch if another one was desired.
7. No shit there are no second chances, why do you think it is such an amazing option??
8. I never liked the idea of long stories personally, living past 40 is a horrid thought.
9. "effect the universe" Please, we are so minor, that should've haven't even been taken into consideration.
10. I could care less if I hurt people, I am pretty sure I am mostly emotionally dead so I am bias on this one.

FUCK THIS LIST TIME TO GO BACK TO BED AND STARTOVER ON ANOTHER DAY

NoMore, sorry you didn't find what you are looking for here, but I think a lot of the people who come here searching for a reason to continue living are looking for the wrong things, or in the wrong place.

Here you can only find words and ideas and if we are lucky, some inspiration.

I think what people who are struggling need more of is to reach out for the things that they love doing in life and try to do more of those things and focus on them more.

They also need to reach out to someone special, whether it is a lover, friend or family...someone who hopefully will offer support and unconditional love and not let you down. Unfortunately, those type of people are often hard to find (especially when you are actively looking for them) and not everyone has them, but they are out there, so don't give up hope!!!

You may not find a reason to live on this website, but as was always the case, you are the one who must give your own life direction and value. Hopefully Logical Spiritualism can be a stepping stone on that journey.

Please shut down this website, you are not helping.

Not all pain goes away over time. living for obligation to others is a death of its own variety. lets face it, life and happiness is much more remote for some. we as individuals really dont matter in the grand scheme of things. sometimes living is the most cruel thing you can do to yourself. time passes, but pain,sadness and regret still darkens the soul.

This is about the worst piece of garbage advice about suicide ever.....You obviously DO NOT GET IT!!! Not even a little....and that is a good thing that you don't understand, but just SHUT UP with advice giving....or just try the only slightly worse "JUST get over it!"

Total crap, for most people who really have logically thought their way through the alternatives. Most of these reasons basically point to suicide as a cop out, that those who choose it are selfish, quitters, who need to think of tough it out until things get better. What if things won't get better ? What if you are battling a chronic painful, progressive disease? What if the butterfly effect is that a husband can move on , children can be happy knowing mommy isn't hurting , the POSITIVE effects are just as far reaching as negative . Perhaps YOU need to do some more research before automatically lumping all those contemplating suicide into the same category. Some don't want to die , but living is pure pain. Some are only still here to see their children , spouse , family or friends one more time . How selfish are you to tell anyone how much more pain they should have to stand?

wba fan,

Sorry you didn't find the content more relevant to you.

But 1 & 5 matter to a lot of people "while they are still alive." Obviously, not so much after.

But seriously, are you going to argue there are no such things as second chances? That does seem like, how did you put it? Rubbish.

They are certainly not unlimited, but the world is filled with second chances!

I was attracted to this by the "Logical" tag but the content is either a statement of opinion presented as fact, or illogical. EG No second chances - there never is in anything - this is a function of the forward motion of time. Re 1 and 5 - I will be dead - I wont care what anyone is thinking. 3 if there was a better way we would take it. Again opinion presented as fact. Very disappointing rubbish.

Jim Anderson, lots of us are really struggling right now...

All we can do is the best we can. Wish each other the best and be supportive of others when we get the opportunity.

I hope your journey gets better.

SUICIDE IS A SOLUTION TO MY LIFE. MAYBE NOT YOURS, BUT DEFINITELY MINE. PROVE TO ME THAT I WON'T HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS CONSCIOUSNESS AGAIN AND I'M GONE IN 2 MINUTES. THAT'S THE PROBLEM. I WON'T DO ANYTHING THAT MAKES ME COME BACK. I'M GLAD ALL OF YOU HAVE OTHER CHOICES. OF COURSE WE COULD ALWAYS DO SERIOUS PYSCHOTROPIC BRAIN KILLING DRUGS. ADD THAT TO CONFINEMENT AND EVENTUAL INSANITY AND THAT'S A CHOICE. NOT!!`
