Some might tell us, tell me to be compassionate with these people, victims of this horrible thought but it's hard to sympathise with these people when they have something going on for them compared to others.

Su - i - cide.

Are you suicidal? Am I?

A guy from my block tried to jump off the 9th storey last Sunday. A friend told me all about it and when I heard it....I laughed.

Now, forgive my insensitivity. I laughed because I thought he was foolish. I don't know what bothered him but if he tried to take his own life because of something as silly as getting dumped, then he is the biggest dumbass to ever grace the face of the earth.

I don't get it. Why do this thought even cross people's mind? Why do they do it? Stress? Maybe but it's still not a solid excuse. In fact, nothing is.

Some might tell us, tell me to be compassionate with these people, victims of this horrible thought but it's hard to sympathise with these people when they have something going on for them compared to others. At least they have a life.

Fine, their lives might not be as blessed as one might hope for but at least they have a chance to make it right, to turn it around. There are probably a million other people out there trying to survive, doing their best to live knowing that they have the slimmest of chance to actually achieve it but we don't see them jumping off a cliff now do we?!

Part of me do empathise with him but another part - a major part - of me thinks he's stupid, silly, idiotic for giving up. I sympathise with his family for having to go through the terror of this whole mess but I don't pity him, I just can't.

Maybe he thought life is a friggin' bed of roses and when reality finally hit him, he cracked. If he can't take that, maybe he will need all the luck that he can get to ever get on with the rest of his nearly wasted life...

[Sorry if this entry offended anyone. It's just something I feel strongly about.]

    Very well said! You know, I must be honest, I also think that some people are just being foolish, silly and idiotic about taking their own lives when they're being dumped.

    To die just for a girl/boy? C'mon! Life is more than that!

    i wouldn't reali noe. i personally have nvr contemplated suicide. call me a laid-back person, easily contented or rather blessed person.

    personally, i tink suicide is wrong in itself 2 commit. u noe wad they say bout "when man plays God..." right? i believe no1 has the right to take a life but God. even our own. so if we take our own life, we r kinda in a way playing God

    It's kind off sad that people commit suicide. We have people killing themselves because of a broken hard. Some do it for they think the world is too much to bear. Some even do it as an express ticket to heaven.

    Life isn't that bad, poor African farmers will fight on to live no matter what. Nigerians are a happy bunch even though their country is an almost failed state. Some people like me have a short lifespan and yet look at life with optimism.

    Don't contemplate suicide, life is always worthwhile no matter how difficult it is.
