    Am I being weak by not killing myself?

    Everything about life is just a chore. I hate the thought of one day dealing with financial stress on top of emotional stress. I hate that I may never be able to get to the people in the world across the ocean who care about me. I feel barely on the edge of not dying.
    Should I just push myself over? Am I being weak for not killing myself when things are bad? Maybe I need to be stronger and end me.

    no, you're not being weak. if you're thinking about suicide you're suffering a lot. you're hurting. weak/strong has nothing to do with any of it. it's okay to have the feelings you're having. many of us think about suicide when we're in crisis. some people who are deep in crisis go through with an attempt (successful or not). some who are deep in crisis just think about suicide. it's called "feeling suicidal".

    i'm sorry you're in crisis. i hope tomorrow is better for you, at least some. is there someone you can talk to about how you feel? that can help a lot.

    post again and let us know how you are doing. we are here. we know what you're going through because we go through it too.

    In the uk we have 'the samaritans' for anyone feeling as low as you are. Contact the equivalent organisation where you are. As great as this forum might be, you need to look after yourself and get immediate help. You need help to be able to see the simple beauty in the world around you. It's right there in front and all around. Yes, there's a lot of sh1t too, but look beyond it or talk to someone to help you to. Hope you feel better soon.

    I believe suicide is only justified in certain situations such as if you are suffering from some incurable painful disease.
    For example, my uncle had pancreatic cancer and was in a nursing home and he was really in pain and a vegetable.
    They should have pulled the plug and it was a horrible sight to see and one I will never forget. Their was a man named
    Jack Kevorkian who was a proponent and assisted in patient assisted suicide. He would have been the man for my uncle.
    Kevorkian got a lot of publicity, both positive and negative. He passed away in 2011 and was a pathologist by trade, I believe.
