that you feel like ending it all?
Nope. Not ever.
You just curious?
Anyone who says they haven't entertained that notion at one point or another is either 1) a liar or 2) has had an extremely easy and boring life or 3) simply has not lived long enough.
Or they've had an interesting life but have been lucky enough to never feel things are that bleak -- even when things are bad.
Are you really saying that you've never, even for a fleeting moment, thought, "if I weren't here things would be a whole lot easier"? Never had that George Bailey moment followed by the "Merry Christmas, you wonderful old Building and Loan!"
LOL! Well put. No. I really never have. That's not to say I've never felt overwhelmed or I've never been unhappy. But nothing was ever so bleak in my life (knock wood, ptoi, ptoi, pooh, pooh) that I ever felt I'd be better off not being here or that I couldn't face another moment.
FWIW, I think suicide is the ultimate act of selfishness.
Well it is the ultimate act of selfishness... no doubt about it... which is why the thought far-more-often-than-not never comes to fruition. But, just because one hasn't done it doesn't mean they haven't entertained the notion.
I understand what you're saying. This topic actually came up after Owen Wilson tried to off himself. I really have never entertained the notion. That's not to say there aren't circumstances under which I *wouldn't*. I just never have.
I think the real question we need to have answered here though is:
Roomy, is there something you'd like to talk about?
