If you don't have any overwhelming problem you can not conceive why they do so. One of the common reason is lack in self esteem, suicides think that if they end continuing then nobody will notice their absence instead they will be happy that there is one less ugly person, like in my case

Atashka,
Now days people are too focused on physical appearance, and if there is something they have too much of, it's "self-esteem", or self love.

Please stop concerning yourself with what other people think about you. I can assure you they are not nearly as concerned about it as you are. And, it really doesn't matter anyway.

God has created you for a purpose. It may not even be what you imagine, as some people think, that God has created them to accomplish some great thing or be someone famous. These people are narcissists.

Find the purpose God created you to be and you will be fulfilled in this life.

Find your life, don't end it. Your life is very very precious.

For stars, it's probably the lack of fulfillment. People think money can fill the empty times, and when they realize it doesn't they don't know what will.

Unless someone has been on the brink of suicide, they will never be able to comprehend the deep emotional and sometimes physical pain that's involved.
All others can only surmise and speculate.
My own suicidal intentions, Edward, had nothing to do with lack of fullfillment. It had everything to do with deep painful, longstanding depression and panic attacks so horrible that I just wanted to kill myself to end it all.

I wanted to because of the secret family courts letting a rapist, a Freemason, take me to court for paternity "rights". They all ganged up on me and threatened me with prison if I didn't hand my son over to the man who raped me, and made me feel like I was dead already. I prayed to Jesus to help me and I didn't think he had answered my prayer so I kicked my bible around and bust it. I won the case, but that rapist is to be allowed to take me back to court in just over a years time. Jesus hasn't taken the problem away completly, but he's made me stronger and more able to deal with it. I'm not scared of any of them any more, I'm not scared if they did put me in prison, and I'm not even scared if they killed me now. But that's why I was depressed and suicidal, it's because I was scared.

I feel overwhelmed sometimes. I have a deep depression that keeps me focused on the negative in my life instead of the good. If I have one horrible thing in my life, I cannot see the three good things in my life. My depression grasps my heart. I was just telling my husband that I know this sounds silly, but when I get truly depressed, my heart feels this great pressure. I just want the pressure to stop. I want to put something there to end the pressure, to stop the pain, to end the depression. However, I do not commit suicide, because I fear what actually exists on the other side.. what if it's worse, what if there's nothing, what if I destroy my family's life? Things of that nature keep me here, but the pain and pressure is still there... and I just want to end it... I don't know, but I think that pressure might be why people want to commit suicde.. that pressure from depression.

Anti-depressant and other psychotropic (mind) drugs are a true reason for suicide mass murder and violence in the society today.

There is no "Evidence-based medicine" of a chemical imbalance. There has been "No" biological defect found for any mental illness or any of the other made to order diagnoses by any neurological study.

In my case its not so much getting the attention, I think that what stops me from doing it is that I know how much it would hurt some people and its not their fault so they shouldn't have to deal with what's left over after I'm gone. Attempted suicide once before, didn't do a good enough job of it but I did pay the price for the failure.

Seriously though, I really want to end this life because there really is nothing to look forward to. Nothing. Worst part of it is living an empty existance like a hollow puppet makes each day worse than the one before.

We've talked before, Ling. You'd rather die, than enter into a serious pursuit of God...which, by the way, is what it's going to take to end your dilemma, by entering into the TRUE life, and give meaning and purpose to your life.

Anyone can die.

Actually we haven't spoken before. You must have had me mistaken for someone else.

If you have walked the same path I have, then perhaps we came out of it with a different understanding of what "life" is about. I respect your principles and well as your belief systems and ask that I be left to mine.

Funny when suicide is dissected, whether through science or religious/spiritual philosophies, the human factor is left out of the equation. We speak of a notion of killing oneself versus hope over despair yet when the pain and anguish is keenly felt by one who is suicidal; who truly knows what lies hidden in the person's head and heart unless one has walked the same dark raod before.

I lost a friend last year, she jumped off a building and sometimes I think I know what she went through moments before her death yet do I really? No, I don't but I feel the loss deeply.

Anyone can die? No, everyone will die eventually... but I feel your presumptous opinion of me shows a lack of understanding of where I was or where I am. Thank you for the link you provided but Answers.Com does not have the answers I am looking for. I didn't ask for a solution, merely shared my experience of suicide; you may want to keep that in mind before jumping the gun.





No, I don't believe we spoke before nor do I think you

Of course, Ling, you will be left to your belief system. You have choices like everyone else. If you choose to live, your choices and belief systems may change and evolve....or not.

If you were to commit suicide as your tormented friend chose to do, you will never have the chance to form different opinions or make courageous changes and adjustments.

And living does take courage.

I think you know what I meant when I said, "Anyone can die".

When you post on a public forum, you can not only expect, but encourage responses, sometimes contrary to your own.

My comments were less presumptuous than you think. Just let me say this, that I know about mental and physical torment and how hard life is and that it is sometimes painful and cruel. I have walked the razor edge between life and suicide, and the only reason I am typing this now, alive and breathing, is not because of a "religious" philosophy, or even a conscious decision of my own but because of supernatural intervention.

You see, that's what my own, and the testimonies on the link I provided were all about....supernatural intervention.

It's very strange, but somehow very true that "some" suicidal people never arrive at that place of receiving supernatural intervention, unless and until they have a genuine spiritual and/or life crisis. Until they have arrived at such a place of pain and torment and have given up all hope of being able to resolve their problems, that God can then step in and deal with them on a supernatural level. I don't know why it is that some go ahead and make that death leap and God does nothing to intervene. That's been a mystery to me.

All I do know for a fact is that when unsaved, spiritually unregenerate people do manage to kill themselves, then they cut off any chance of realizing the best that God had for their lives, the chance to know and commune with him on a mystical level....

I can only hope, and yes, pray, that you will open yourself up to that intimate knowledge and communion with him by staying alive.

I hope others reading this thread will receive hope and courage to reach out to God for help, and be delivered as well.

God bless you all

I don't think everyone will die. If Jesus comes back soon they won't, will they?

The world is full of cruel and evil people. It gets harder and harder to find a friendly face in society, someone who smiles at you, someone who asks you "how are you?" American have become so bitter and hateful, I would guess due to the economy sucking ass and us being financial raped at the gas pumps for far too long.
I think America was built on too many lies, we don't have freedoms and liberty. The government frauds us everyday and we just bend over and take, because what else can you do?? you become a terrorist if you are "anti-american".

You can hit me up in the "i want to die" thread. It's such a joy to think about how much I would rather be dead, but i do not have the will to kill myself.

My goodness! If my happiness, sense of freedom and peace of mind, etc; depended on how other people act, treat me, or on what the government does, or doesn't do, at the gas pumps or anywhere else, then I would be of all people most miserable.

Just a suggestion, but you might change your focus from those negative things you mentioned and onto something/anything more positive, including doing something to make the world a better place yourself.

There are many opportunities to help the innocent victims of the world. Children, and animals for example. Then you become part of the solution to those negatives.

There are certain sign posts that indicate that Jesus is not due to come back just yet, as some doctrines have been teaching people......falsely.

If you read Matthew 24 really closely, you will see that Jesus said it will be IMMEDIATELY AFTER the Tribulation, that he will gather his Elect. And that's another key word. Elect. Not everyone is as "elect" as they think they are, lol!

Anyway, to answer your question, it is true that not everyone will die a physical death if they are found among the elect when Jesus comes.

But if we are "elect" now, we have eternal life now. It's a win win situation whether we live or die,(the natural death).

Zoompad...I have felt that there were more suicide posts near or on the time of a full moon. Have you noticed this as well? Just an observation on my part. I could be wrong. But....there is one coming up soon. We shall see.

I've been emotionally kicked around my entire life. When I'm not being emotionally and verbally assaulted, I'm being ignored. Sometimes I just get tired of being kicked around, and feeling like a screw up because I can never make the important people in my life happy. I'm more than this, but I just want to give up, I've been fighting this fight for so long....I just get so tired... I don't want to feel anymore. I don't want to regret anymore, and I don't want to be anyones regret anymore.

I'm sorry you've been hurt in life by shallow, selfish people. You might try doing what I am doing........a sort of weeding out process, getting rid of the ones who bring you down, and only allowing those in your life who add value to it. You might be surprised how easy this is and how good it feels :)

You see, dear heart...first of all, it's not your job to "make them happy". It's your job to make YOU happy! Think how surprised they'll be when they find this out, lol!

For sure, these abusers aren't worth loosing it over and giving up. You just need to set new priorities for yourself,

Love,

i've taken anti-depressants and they've usually helped me a lot. I think the first time I had a major depression issue lasted for months, but then eventually I came out it. That was huge cause now when I feel depressed I know I can crawl out of it again.

If you feel depressed you should think about this. The feeling won't last and eventually something will help you to come out of it whether it be anti-depressants or life improvements.

Last surmon of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon Him

THE PROPHET MUHAMMAD'S LAST SERMON
(This Sermon was delivered on the Ninth Day of Dhul Hijjah 10 A.H in the Uranah Valley of mount Arafat ) Note: Found on the Net, but without source or copyright information. Please contact halsall@muray.fordham.edu if you have information
"O People, lend me an attentive ear, for I don't know whether, after this year, I shall ever be amongst you again. Therefore listen to what I am saying to you carefully and TAKE THIS WORDS TO THOSE WHO COULD NOT BE PRESENT HERE TODAY.

O People, just as you regard this month, this day, this city as Sacred, so regard the life and property of every Muslim as a sacred trust. Return the goods entrusted to you to their rightful owners. Hurt no one so that no one may hurt you. Remember that you will indeed meet your LORD, and that HE will indeed reckon your deeds. ALLAH has forbidden you to take usury (Interest), therefore all interest obligation shall henceforth be waived...

Beware of Satan, for your safety of your religion. He has lost all hope that he will ever be able to lead you astray in big things, so beware of following him in small things.

O People, it is true that you have certain rights with regard to your women, but they also have right over you. If they abide by your right then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well and be kind to them for they are your partners and comitted helpers. And it is your right that they do not make friends with any one of whom you do not approve, as well as never to commit adultery.

O People, listen to me in earnest, whorship ALLAH, say your five daily prayers (Salah), fast during the month of Ramadhan, and give your wealth in Zakat. Perform Hajj if you can afford to. You know that every Muslim is the brother of another Muslim. YOU ARE ALL EQUAL. NOBODY HAS SUPERIORITY OVER OTHER EXCEPT BY PIETY AND GOOD ACTION.

Remember, one day you will appear before ALLAH and answer for your deeds. So beware, do not astray from the path of righteousness after I am gone.

O People, NO PROPHET OR APOSTLE WILL COME AFTER ME AND NO NEW FAITH WILL BE BORN. Reason well, therefore, O People, and understand my words which I convey to you. I leave behind me two things, the QUR'AN and my example, the SUNNAH and if you follow these you will never go astray.

All those who listen to me shall pass on my words to others and those to others again; and may the last ones understand my words better than those who listen to me direcly. BE MY WITNESS O ALLAH THAT I HAVE CONVEYED YOUR MESSAGE TO YOUR PEOPLE."
