Top 10 Reasons to Not Commit Suicide

There have been countless numbers of suicides going on in the past few years so I've decided to share my thoughts on why you should not kill yourself. Don't even try to kill yourself. It really is not worth it. Trust me.

Anyone considering suicide, remember, you're not alone. Confidential help is available.

In the U.S. you can contact the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline for free by phone at 1-800-273-8255 or by online chat at There a counselor will listen to you, understand how your problems are affecting you, provide support, and share resources that may be helpful.

Outside the U.S., please seek out the available resources in your country.

The Top Ten

1 Suicide does not take away the pain, it gives it to someone else

If no one cares about you, how would the pain be given to someone else, this is just dumb

Gibberish. The pain goes away when you die, and disappears.

Your friends and family will end up grieving for you, and the memory will stick with them for their whole life. Don't cause them the pain. - RosalinaX

Welp I got a quote from my favorite anime character so I hope this helps.
"Suicide is not the answer, there is no honour nor redemption in that." - HistorianaPhilippiniana

2 People will think you deserved to die because you killed yourself

So what you're saying right here is: I did lots of bad things and made lots and mistakes in my life and my life's totally worthless, and then it's only after I ended the chance of that ever happening ever again is when people will think that I deserve to die.

So what who cares

I've seen a lot of this on YouTube. - Croy987

Do you think that I care?

3 You only have one life

All organisms' purpose in life is to reproduce and die. We are supposed to fight for our lives because only the strongest make it. That goes for the birds, fish, dogs, cats, humans, and every other organism on the planet. Except humans are so ignorant that they care about love and friendship. When in reality our friends and family wont be there for us after we die. Our superior intelligence has blinded us to the truth about life. The animals know quite well about what they need to do, but they are not caught up in the prison of love and emotions. Have a nice day! - benstewart1805

Yh and sorry to ruin the atmosphere but this one life is pointless we are born then we die so even if the cure for cancer was found or you were a celeb you would eventually end up dead so whats the point in going to school etc if we are just going to end up dead I a hole

If you would have more than one life, suicide was useless...

Reincarnation, you didn’t think of that. - WoSi

4 You'll miss out on all the great, positive things about life.

When you want to kill yourself, you don't see those things anymore

Yes. It's true. I have so much to live for. I want to become a YouTuber, travel around the world, adopt a puppy & so many things other people do. I will never commit suicide EVER!

Who knows? Maybe tomorrow, you'll be the wealthiest person alive! - MLPFan

Writing is what keeps me sane, in all honesty. - Cyri

5 You will go to hell

Okay, can we keep religion out of this?

What if you don't believe in Hell?

Um, I do not believe in afterlife, and you JUST SAID you only have one life... that's very controversial. This is not a solid reason, since thousands of people don't believe in hell

Lol. - RosalinaX

6 It's a permanent solution to a temporary problem

Some problems may NOT be temporary. You may be dying anyway and all your family is dead

Definitely true. Once your gone there is nothing there is nothing u can do to change that. So very true.

7 Somebody might need you

What if you have someone that's going through something, like depression or autism or something that changes their life dramatically, and then all of a sudden the person they care about most dies? - RosalinaX

It's not likely

My heart is breaking. On this list and on the "Top 10 best ways to commit suicide" people announced they're going to kill themselves. Please. Don't.

Who? - Camaro6

8 You're never going to get to do what you've always wanted to do

What if all I want to do is die?


What if part of my reason for death is because I can no longer find enjoyment in what I want to do �" - jesuscrust

9 Suicide people don't go to heaven

I think that this is really hurtful, the people that feel pike this already think that they aren't good enough and saying this to someone just makes everything worse. If I were to look at this I would instantly feel worse than I already felt. This is messed and needs to be taken down, this is not a valid reason!

Then if God exists, why he doesn't do anything with evilness existing in this world?! Is that the best that the "supreme being" could do? Wake up people, praying isn't going to work because it's just a ritualistic pose, not just some stupid supernatural "thing" that's going to actually happen! Great! Now I'm becoming an militant atheist because of religious extremism. - Kevinsidis

He does, but only helps the people who choose to place their faith in Him. - RosalinaX

I'm dead and I didn't go to heaven or hell. - Ghost

There is neither heaven nor hell. Oh, that's considered God's love if he's not empathetic of people who suffered from depression! Oh yes, that's nice! How hypocritical and illogical does the Bible have to be?! - Kevinsidis

10 You only live once

Unless you believe in re-birth. You can be re-born after you die, heck if you get lucky, you'll get the opportunity to start your OWN life all over again.

But yes, suicide is quite risky.

Isn't this the first one in this list?

We already did this one

Yh and then we die so live is pointless

The Contenders

11 You will break your parents' hearts

This list is bull! The fact that people believe this as a legit reason not to kill themselves is proof as to how horribly misrepresented this is in the media.

"If you kill yourself it will break everyone's hearts." Oh boo hoo. That is suggesting that your life is less important to you than to others, as if THEY are the ones that should be in charge of your life and decide if you live or die. Often times, one's "loved ones" are the whole reason they want to die, and to suggest to people that they should keep living for their own well-beings is at the same level of insulting as racism or sexism or fascism among other things. If you truly believe in this concept, you deserve to go to hell just as much as the people who "commit suicide" supposedly will!

Maybe your parents are the reason

The reason I am suicidal is because of my mom, I don't have a father, but I don't wanna die because I believe in hell.

My parents are dead - Commitdie224

12 It will affect the lives of others

Everything you do will!

13 You're not the only one who has a difficult or depressing life

Haha stfu that doesn't mean I'm immune to pain because of that fact - jesuscrust

Your point?

You may think your life is the worst and maybe it's true from your point of view cause am not saying it's not hard but everyone around you too has that special thing that pulls them down, so what about that small number of people who love you,and what about those who only have you,do not be selfish,your life is not only yours

Exactly.People need to realize this. - DarkBoi-X

14 People will miss you

What if nobody liked you or cared about you

True if you kill yourself your only hurting yourself and the ones that love you and care for you so very true.

It may not always feel like it, but there is someone who cares about you. Trust me.

If someone actually cared this might be true. - Camaro6

15 The bad people will win

What the carp does this have to do with anything

Tf are the bad people? >: (

What if the bad person is myself and that's why I want to die �" - jesuscrust

Yeah...that's the only thing bothers me.

16 Somebody will always love you

What if nobody ever loved you and ever will love you no matter what you say or do, just how you say or do it, or just when you say or do it, and it's not ever going to matter until you die?

Who? - Camaro6

17 The good in the world will always outweigh the bad, even if it seems like the opposite

Look at he world right now. Look all over the news and what people are doing to other people. Think again

18 Suicide is not always effective

Sometimes, you don't succeed in killing yourself. Rather, you end up seriously injuring yourself instead.

If you fail it... You might be feeling worse than you already are... That's like, the only reason I'm still alive, trying to find a 100% method...

Yeah true or sometime nothing bad happens at all.

If you fail to suicide you might end up with disabilities or end up with brain damage...

21 The people who made life miserable for you, will win

Exactly! The bullies or whoever don't care if u live or die they r not affected by it. Only the people that love you and care about u!

Now, why would you want to give them that kind of satisfaction?

At least I would be at peace and I wouldn't have to put up with the feeling that my father hates me!

What if its your school not like your teachers will care

22 They were born for a reason

Everyones reason was to die we were all born to die we could all look the same and all have the same job an house if we really wanted

Suicide jokes are NOT funny for the cyberbully who put "Maybe their reason was to die." If he/she was a signed in user he/she would possibly be banned from the website

Maybe their reason was to die


23 Your loved ones will cry

What if you do not have anyone who loved you.

My mother would kill me if I did this! - Britgirl

I considered it loads of times but them I thought it will only make the people I hate happy and hurt the people I love deeply

What if you have no loved ones

24 It's not worth it

For a while, I was suicidal. But then I thought to myself, "It's not worth it." No matter what, there is one person who loves you in the world. I can assure you of it. Even if you feel alone. - Absolite

25 You're never get to grow up

I don't want to.

Why is that so important?

Unless if you are an adult - AnonymousChick

Over 200,000 kids have killed them self at the ages of 11-18

26 Everybody matters

not really

All life is sacred - PeeledBanana

No they don't.

27 Everyone is special In their own ways, so are you!

If everyone on this planet is special than that makes no one special

I'm special in the way I'm the most pathetic person I know.

Every snowflake's different just like you

No I’m not - Camaro6

28 No one deserves to die

What about Hitler? If you had the chance to go back in time and kill Hitler before ww2, would you.? Or does he not deserve to die, either

Yet everybody has to eventually?

Do you mean no matter what I've done at all?

Even if they want to?

29 Not everyone is mean

Everyone is mean when ya get to know them


30 Your life is valuable

My life's worthless. Like dirt.

Like gold

Is it? Is it reallly? - Commitdie224

Um no - Camaro6

31 You have too much to live for

I'm a worthless, helpless, useless piece of human garbage that deserves to die and I feel like I can't find too much joy in what I have to live for any more. And anything better than that that's said about me is just wrong and not true in the slightest.

We did this before

32 You are the special (reference to the Lego movie)

No one is special if everyone is special.

Shut your face.

Uh... I think everyone is specail is better

Don't get it

33 You should appreciate the little you have


I try. - Camaro6

I do very much. My life is great and I have a loving family. My neurotransmitters don't know how to make serotonin and I feel guilty for being so depressed. My life is so good and yet I am chemically unable to be happy. I feel like I'm pretty deserving of death for that reason ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

34 Everyone has flaws and no one is perfect

But what if your flaws r bigger than every1 elses

35 It doesn't stop life getting worse, it eliminates the chance of it getting better

Except it also keeps me from doing anymore bad things in the future.

36 You will break your children's hearts

That was insensitive. What if your a kid loving on the street alone and both your parents dies. You have no siblings or family or friend.

What if you didn't have children or parents

Everybody has parents and adults have children. I agree.

Unless yo child is dead and that's why your gonna commit it

37 They are loved

I don't under stand

No I'm not.

38 You won't be loved after you've killed yourself

Every last person on this planet who either has enough common or just simply has enough common who isn't getting paid to say good things about me or to me doesn't have the slightest bit of respect for me.

I'm not loved anyway so there's no point in being here

I won’t be loved before I kill myself either. - Camaro6

That’s not true... everyone will start loving you when you die acting like they weren’t the reasons why. - Commitdie224

39 There might be another Justin Bieber that will be born after you kill yourself

I have a theory why you shouldn't kill yourself. Think about it. In 1994, Kurt Cobain killed himself and Justin Bieber was born.

I'm starting to think that Justin Bieber was born just to punish us for killing ourselves. Either way these are just my thoughts.

Isn't this a reason to commit suicide rather than NOT doing so? - MLPFan

Isn't that more of a reason

Shut up you insensitive bully. Such a a brat

40 It means that the bullies won. And you lost

You can prove them wrong tell them your not afraid and you won't end your life because they want you to your perfect I promise

What if the only person bullying me is myself - jesuscrust

I stead of dieing smack them

Kill them first and see what happens.
Either way you die.

41 Run away from everything

Dying's the best way to do that.

42 If there was a possibility of fixing your problems, you would've just missed every opportunity

Death's also an opportunity to solve all of my problems, too.

43 Your loved ones will cry
44 You'll never meet that special someone

You might kill yourself before you live the day where you meet your one true love who you were destined to encounter. Think about dying just one day before meeting that person. Do you really want to deal with a greater pain with that thought eating you up as well.

Maybe you did, and they died so that's why your committing

Yeah but that special someone won't be that special sooner later

I’ll never meet them anyway ‘cause that person doesn’t even exist! - Camaro6

45 You're not gonna get other people to care about you. Most people would just think you were stupid because you killed yourself

This is very true.

So wrong! People would grieve, not whatever YOU said

Unless it's a stupid reason

46 You need to try again

You don't control me, I don't to try anything again if I don't want to at all.

47 Change your history

Are you suggesting that I lie about how my life's gone?

48 Things are never bad enough to cost your life

Not true...

49 If it goes wrong, it will not be pleasant

I was never able to cause anything pleasant in my life anyway.

50 You're not as lonely/useless as what the mean people say

Thanks for the motivation - MLPFan

But what if I am, you just don't know it at all just yet?
