Do you think Suicide is the solution for problems?

Do you think Suicide is the solution for problems? Sometimes, a person will make actions resembling suicide attempts while not being fully committed, or in a deliberate attempt to have others notice. This is called a suicidal gesture (also known as a "cry for help"). Prototypical methods might be a non-lethal method of self-harm that leaves obvious signs of the attempt, or simply a lethal action at a time when the person considers it likely that he/she will be rescued or prevented from fully carrying it out. On the other hand, a person who genuinely wishes to die may fail, due to lack of knowledge about what they are doing, unwillingness to try methods that may end in permanent damage if they fail or harm others, or an unanticipated rescue, among other reasons. This is referred to as a suicidal attempt. Distinguishing between a suicidal attempt and a suicidal gesture may be difficult. Intent and motivation are not always fully discernible since so many people in a suicidal state are genuinely conflicted over whether they wish to end their lives. One approach, assuming that a sufficiently strong intent will ensure success, considers all near-suicides to be suicidal gestures. This however does not explain why so many people who fail at suicide end up with severe injuries, often permanent, which are most likely undesirable to those who are making a suicidal gesture. Another possibility is those wishing merely to make a suicidal gesture may end up accidentally killing themselves, perhaps by underestimating the lethality of the method chosen or by overestimating the possibility of external intervention by others. Suicide-like acts should generally be treated as seriously as possible because if there is an insufficiently strong reaction from loved ones from a suicidal gesture, this may motivate future, and ultimately more committed attempts. In the technical literature the use of the terms parasuicide, or deliberate self-harm (DSH) are preferred – both of these terms avoid the question of the intent of the actions.

Sucide is never a solution for any problem.One can solve any problem , how difficult it may be with a cool mind.By suside we create new problems rather than reducing them.if we have a thought of sucide then just think of a person who is handicapped and still livinf happily.Also think of a small Ant which has to face many difficulties just to live still they live happily.Think of donkey, every one beats him and makes it work all the day, still he is happy.Then we as human are far better than them, then why to waste this beautiful god gifted life.One must utilise this life to do something good for others.If you cannot do anything for yourself then divote this life for others rather than wasting it.Help others any see you will be most happy.Never sucied, it is no answer to any problem.

well is not a easy thing to do i thing they have to reach to that certian point which they can'ttake it any more, what is going to push them that far is the important bit, but is not a solution,but there is not any better way for most of them,there is not a helping hand.

Suiside is absolutely not a problem solver, no matter how we may translate it. Let's run away from any kinds of problems we have and let's just see where this is going to lead us. If I ask myself which does matter to me, "solved" or "how it is solved", I would answer myself that what we have achieved in life can only be measured and NOT as how much distruction we are able to create,

No! It is plain cowardice to face the challenges in life. Challenges that we have to face each day to become a better person. Although our life maybe be at times hopeless to our own standards, think of other people who doesn't have homes, who just sleep on the streets, who eat just one meal a day yet they never give up on life. So you should be ashamed to give up on life that easily. Live on and fight!
