Double Staandards

here's a deep thought for you. how come if it's so damn selfish for someone to commit suicide because of all the people who love them that they'll be hurting. like we don't hurt the poeple we love every god damn day.

how come if that's so selfish,, why isn't it considered just as selfish of them to want suicidical, manic depressive loved one to live?

fucking double standards.

  1. "why isn't it considered just as selfish of them to want suicidical, manic depressive loved one to live?"

    I, being one of those suicidal manic depressives you mention, never thought of it that way.

    I do feel that it would be selfish for me to take my own life. One of the many reasons why I haven't done so is because of my mom and dad.

    You are right when you say that we hurt our loved one's daily. But not everyone does. And even if they DO hurt their loved one's on a daily basis, every day is a new day to change and break the cycle.

    Suicide I feel would be the easy way out for me. Contemplating suicide is obviously a severe symptom of depression. Depression is an illness. An illness that does it's damndest to suck all the hope out of one's soul. Only to create dillusions of inadequacy and helplessness to the point of irriational thinking.

    So why would one want to prolong a manic's illness by masking it with medicine? Love I suppose. Also, the medicine can help correct the repetitious irrational thoughts of hopelessness, if of course, the medication is used properly.

  2. I've often wondered this myself and gone so far as to equate a depressive's pain with that of someone with an incurable mortal illness. At what point does refusing to "pull the plug" on someone cross over into prolonging another's needless suffering?
