It’s interesting that people have to guilt us to stay alive.

They recognize that life is shit which is why they have to guilt us instead of trying to point out all the positive things in life. Obviously the positive things aren’t all that great which is why they resort to guilting.

My favorite part is when they call us selfish while saying, "Please no! I would be so sad!" Like really? Aren't you acting a bit selfish now? I say I'm depressed and considering CTB and the first thing you say is that YOU will hurt? Please. Fuck off?

My sister said to me, "I don't understand why your son isn't enough," while she's had an abortion, gave another child up for adoption, and lives with her boyfriend of less than two years. (While I have many reasons as to what brought me to want to ctb, a failed relationship was the final nail in the coffin.)

It pisses me off that she would throw my child in my face like that, while she ditches responsibility, and lives off of her boyfriend. Must be nice.

Edit: I have no issue with abortion/adoption. I gave her unconditional support through those times. Her hypocrisy is what irritates me.

It's a scummy tactic used by lazy people who don't actually want to help and want to put in as little effort as possible just to keep you around so they don't feel responsible. They don't care if it makes you feel worse, just that they themselves keep feeling well.

Well, your decision will greatly determine the course of your son’s life. That’s a fact.

It is frustrating. It really makes me wish people wouldn't see my suicide that way. But as each second passes I care less and less. They don't truly care about my pain.

Everyone says suicide is selfish but is not everyone equally selfish to want us to live?
exactly! if we're in such a bad place, isnt it almost cruel to make us stay in a life that offers us nothing when theres a perfectly viable way out?

I don't care how selfish suicide is. My life is meaningless if I never feel happy with it. Humans can't run of pure selflessness. Sure maybe you can make yourself happy by making others happy, but if that doesn't work and nothing else is working for you then there's no reason to live.

To put yourself in their shoes what else could they say? I can't really think of anything good to stop someone from ctb.

I think that’s at least part of why they are guilt tripping us to stay alive. I think another part is they themselves aren’t brave enough to face the fact that life is shit and suicide can be a reasonable answer because they are terrified of death and what’s after death(the unknown) more than they are terrified of suffering in life, unlike us who are brave enough to face it. Basically they are cowards.

After being told "you've got plenty to live for", I finally asked them to specifically list off the reasons for living for a young autistic woman with depression, anxiety, premature ovarian failure and severe osteoperosis. Total silence, just like I thought.

Plenty to live for? I'm sorry, that's terrible. In mental hospitals, they give you all these coping mechanisms like drawing and meditating but how the fuck is meditating going to help with premature ovarian failure? Especially if you can't pay for treatment.
