The Top Ten

1 It hurts your family

Why do you care, your dead? - WoSi

You may not care

but they will and if you care about them you wont kill yoursealf - GleamingShadow

Sometimes suicide can cause suicide.

You might mean a lot more to your friends and family members than youd expect - benstewart1805

2 It's a sin

This item is offensive! And this is coming from an atheist! - Sprightly

Can we just put religion aside for one moment? These are people's feelings we are talking about here, and it's actually quite offensive to apply religion in such an insensitive way to such a sensitive topic.

I'd rather go to Hell than end up in a land of Crackpot Fundamental Christians.
You'd rather be with peaceful Christians.
Why would the Beast be against people who rejected the Lord his enemy.
If Heaven exists do you want to end up in a land full of Ned Flanders-like clones.


Just bring Christianity in there!
I'm christian. but lots of people are not. - GleamingShadow

3 They will always be remembered as a tragedy

Being remembered as a tragedy is better than not being remembered at all

So, we would be dead, and why does it matter? At least that way we are remembered. - WoSi

4 It's hurtful to your friends

My friends wouldn't even notice

I literally only have two freinds, their lives would be better without me. - WoSi

5 Somebody new may come along and change your life

yes - GleamingShadow

6 It may cause other people to commit suicide

Why would they care about me? I'm just a waste of space to everyone.

7 You may be needed for a greater purpose

Like what? It’s not happening today? And if I kill myself someone happier will get that high honore. - WoSi

8 It's cowardly

I usually like your lists, egnomac, but not this one. - RoseWeasley

No it's not - GleamingShadow

Sorry. I meant to say that this item is the reason why I hate egnomac. Not genomic. My tablet sometimes changes the words I type and it's annoying.

Jesus christ man have some sympathy for what others are feeling, just because u aren't feeling depressed doesn't mean that u can call it cowardly.

9 Depression can be overcome

Really? I am physically and mentally abused by my mom, sister, and two of my brothers, all of my friends started bullying me, literally no one would care, everyone I meet they have literally told me they hate me, I hate myself, and ever since I started seeing a therapist people have just hated me more, and seriously I have nothing and no one to live for. So really I don't think that my depression will ever be overcome.

My family hates me, they don't care about me at all. I have no friends and everyday I stand in shadowy corners to avoid being seen. I am a disgrace to this world. I don't see why I shouldn't commit suicide... I deserve to go to hell. I HOPE I ROT IN HELL WHERE TERMITES EAT MY BODY ALIVE. Why do I have to live like this... I deserve to die. Why... WHY GOD! WHY DO I HAVE 2 DISABLITIES?!?!? WHY!

10 There's more to enjoy in life

So then why am I so depressed? - WoSi

The Newcomers

? You don’t know where you will go

The Contenders

11 Your life might become better any day

Ya, MIGHT? - WoSi


12 You go to hell

You already said that, and keep religion out of it, reincarnateion is my jam. - WoSi

I wanna do that though


13 Everybody makes mistakes
14 There are people who care about you in life

Where are they?

15 It's a permanent solution to temporary problems.

Permanent solution to permanent, worsening problems

16 There is a light at the end of the tunnel
17 There's a reason to live
18 Everybody deserves a second chance

So, your saying that I should die so that I can live again and finally be happy? - WoSi

19 Your problems won't disappear, someone else will have them

By committing suicide, you are ensuring that someone else will also. Your problems won't disappear. The next of kin will have those problems, plus the costs of burying you. Suicide is for rich families like Donald Trump.

20 No one knows if we have a soul
21 Because as along as you're alive you will always have a chance to find happiness
22 Suicide doesn't take away the pain. It will give it to someone you love.
