I have been on both sides of this. I have been suicidal, and in my job I have seen the huge effect a person's suicide has on their family, friends, communities, and even just acquaintances. Yes, it absolutely is a selfish act. Yes, you may be hurting and feel like there is no way out. I am telling you that this is ALWAYS wrong. A vicious lie told by the media and society's victim mentality in general. No matter what your reasons or excuses for doing this, it is totally just about yourself. I am saying this because I have felt it and I HAVE been there. The people left behind are absolutely devastated and are never the same, and never get over it. And I don't think that true loners (those who TRULY have nobody) are the ones who kill themselves. The majority of the ones I have seen are people who feel like loners, but are actually surrounded by people.
