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

How does it give away the pain to soneone else imagibe if you are a person without any loved ones

non scense

2 You only have one life

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

Precisely. There's always a vast selection of opportunities, and always something to live for. - PositronWildhawk

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

I remember this list. I made it years ago while I was still a visitor. Probably the best list I've made.

3 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.

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

So what who cares


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

One day you are a hated boi, tommorow you will be a millionare for just gaming

5 It's a permanent solution to a temporary problem

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

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

No it isn't. - ItsPisces

6 You will go to hell

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

Okay, can we keep religion out of this?

You will not go to hell if you commit suicide this is lie

7 Suicide people don't go to heaven

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

This is the only reason why I haven't committed suicide because what if its real and I really do end up in hell

You just said that, and I do not believe in HEAVEN or hell

But how can the person who committed suicide go to hell? the victim did not hurt other people

8 You only live once

Isn't this the first one in this list?

We already did this one

Yh and then we die so live is pointless

9 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

Do you really want to do that... ?

Yeah even if they r abusing u or something they will STILL be Herat broken! So true.

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

Your point being...? - ItsPisces

Your point?

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

MLPFan. HOW-COULD-YOU! I can’t believe that you would say such things to suicide people! 😡😡😡 I used to trust you but after what you just wrote I no longer trust you. I am sick and tired of all these stupid things people believe about depression and suicide. For example some people believe that those who are depressed should get over it because life is hard and many people are fighting for their lives. I don’t care what other people are doing about their stupid lives! Also i’m tired of all this “suicide is selfish and cowardly” nonsense. It’s rude and untrue. I also hate it when people say that there are others who have it worse than depressed people. Again, who cares about what other people are doing about their stupid lives! (sorry if I sounded harsh but i’m tired of this nonsense.) People who actually help those depression don’t just shove insults like these down their throats unlike idiots like MLPFan. That user dosen’t deserve any attention. Everybody ...more

11 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

12 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.

13 Suicide is not always effective

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

Yeah true or sometime nothing bad happens at all.

You can find different ways

14 Funeral costs

Money, BRILLIANT! sarcasm

If you're dead what do you care

This is the main reason I don't commit suicide - JordanFireStar

This is just offensive

15 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

16 You fear death

Are you sure about that? I think death is glorious...

How do you know that I fear death if you don't even know me?

No I don't - Tess-chan

17 Your loved ones will cry

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 do not have anyone who loved you.

What if you have no loved ones

18 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.

19 Everybody matters

All life is sacred - PeeledBanana

not really

No they don't.

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

21 Somebody might need you


22 You're never get to grow up

I don't want to.

Why is that so important?

Unless if you are an adult - AnonymousChick

True unless your like 60

23 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!

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

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

What if its your school not like your teachers will care

24 No one deserves to die

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

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

Even if they want to?

Yet everybody has to eventually?

25 Not everyone is mean
26 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


27 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

28 Everyone has flaws and no one is perfect
29 It is a sin

Seriously. There might be more trouble if you killed yourself in the next life, than you already have in this one.

Don't bring religion into this. Some people don't believe in hell. - SammySpore

In Hell, you will be burned alive, have your still living body dumped in a river of feces, with electric eels biting you and swimming up you anus, while being forced to listen to Justin Bieber music for eternity. Do you really want to have your soul end up there forever?

30 You have too much to live for

We did this before

31 You should appreciate the little you have


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)_/¯

32 You might prove others wrong one day

It might not happen.

33 They are loved

I don't under stand

No I'm not.

34 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.

35 Your loved ones will cry
36 You're not as lonely/useless as what the mean people say

Thanks for the motivation - MLPFan

37 It doesn't stop life getting worse, it eliminates the chance of it getting better
38 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

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

Everybody has parents and adults have children. I agree.

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

Shut up you insensitive bully. Such a a brat

Isn't that more of a reason

40 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.

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

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

41 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

42 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.

43 Change your history

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

44 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

45 Everyone has their own opinions about you

But what if all of those opinions are actually true?

46 You are what makes you happy. That's another reason to not hurt yourself
47 Your life is valuable

Like gold

48 You don't need a pity party funeral. Just a friend

I need a pity party. The problem is that nobody will come. - AnonymousChick

You really don't know what it's like to be suicidal. - RockFashionista

49 It will affect the lives of others

Everything you do will!

50 You'll rot in the ground

Whenever you dye you will. Were all slowly rotting on the earth surface anyway
