Before you call suicide selfish, stop for a minute and be grateful you have never felt the kind of pain that makes ending your life seem like the only option left. Just a year ago, I was hospitalized after a suicide attempt and to say I didn't think about what it would do to my loved ones would be one of the most hurtful things someone could say to me. All I did w...as think about those that I love and that love and care about me. Not a moment passed during my darkest times that I didn't think about what it would do to my family and my friends if I were gone but there was so much pain that I didn't feel like I had another option. Unless you have felt that pain, you will never understand the depths of despair someone goes through at that point. Please don't ever use the word selfish when describing suicide and please don't judge something you are very lucky to not understand.
