SUICIDE IS A SELFISH ACT

Individuals who experience suicidal ideations do not do so by choice. They are not simply ‘thinking of themselves’.

Many people who attempt suicide feel they are a ‘burden’ to others, and that their friends and family would be ‘better off’ without them.

While some people recognise that their death may cause their loved one’s pain, they may also believe they are causing more pain by being alive. They rationalise suicide as a way to protect those they care about. In their mind suicide as quite selfless.
