Sup Pit,

I see a lot of people in The Pit talking about how they either have been or are currently suicidal and I was wondering if they're still afraid of death in every day life. If you aren't afraid of death could you post if you know why this is e.g. Near death experience, losing someone you live, some random thing etc etc

Not really. I wouldn't like to die right now but I'm not afraid of it.

I've had, like, one or two near death experiences, but I suppose that's just how life is. I'm not really afraid of death. I just don't want to die in some horrific manner. I already saw A Perfect Circle live, so I think I can die happy.

I certainly wouldn't welcome it, but I'm not afraid of it either. I mean, it's gonna happen someday anyway, can't spend my life avoiding it.
I'm rgrockr and I do not approve of this message.

part of me wonders if some suicidal tendencies spring about as a result of anxiety over death. for example, there is part of a population of gay men who purposely get infected with AIDS at "conversion parties." my gay friends told me there was some psychological basis in it wherein the fear and anxiety of getting AIDS is so overwhelming that they will do it just to get it over with. sounds weird. but i wonder if the same is true of SOME suicidal thoughts.

Nope. I'm not trying to be some badass or something, but I see nothing to be afraid of. Once you're dead, there's nothing to worry about.

Some people would say that our entire lives are spent avoiding death >_>

Are you saying that you're afraid of dying or trying to correct me?
#12
On a rational basis I'm not afraid of death. I think it's pretty irrational to be afraid of death, and generally speaking on a day to day basis I would say "death doesn't bother me". However, I think it is a perfectly normal human thing to non-rationally always be driven to avoid it. If a car almost hits me, or someone came at me with a knife yeah I think I'd be scared.

However, on the other hand I would describe myself as having vaguely suicidal tendancies. I think if there was a button I could just press so I wouldn't wake up again, or so life would just end, I would have died a while back.
I might have somewhat have a desire to be dead, but not enough of a drive to commit suicide.

Afraid of old age........all those creaking joints and bent backs.........yikes

The solution is simple and obvious.

We revolt against ourselves. Mass suicide. The ultimate revolution.
#15
Eh, I'm not. I look both ways crossing the road, but at the same time I wouldn't really mind if it were to happen. I'm fairly apathetic to it due to various experiences. That being said, I hate pain and I'm a right nancy, so while I don't fear death, I'd probably run from a potential cause.

I'm more afraid of being horrifically injured and crippled for life than I am of dying.

I also don't fear the afterlife, because there is none, and if there was I'm pretty sure God is a bigger cunt than satan so I'll probably have a good time in hell.

That being said, I'm not ready to die. I don't want to die. My life is pretty boring but I definitely want to live. I guess you could say I'm afraid of dying.

Dying is the end result of being born. Were you afraid to be conceived? I have no desire to die today. Or any time soon. But some day I will welcome its embrace.

I attempted suicide twice when I was a teenager. I had suicidal thoughts nonstop for years (and I mean nonstop). I ended up just making peace with who I was and that I am going to die eventually. I will be ready for whenever the Grim Reaper comes to pay a visit.
#26
Not suicidal and never have been. Not worried about dying either. Have plenty of time before that happens. If it happens earlier than I hope then oh well

We should start calling it "The Fact of Evolution", theory, even though correct, does not work with the ignorant..

everything happens for a reason, so there's no point in avoiding anything purposefully. if the time's right then it's my time to end my journey.

And I am not frightened of dying. Any time will do, I don't mind. Why should I be frightened of dying? There's no reason for it, you've got to go sometime

Unlikely. I would say that nearly every single case of suicide is merely what appears to be best way to end whatever is causing so much suffering. David Foster-Wallace once put suicide as something that a person *wants* to do as someone who is in a highrise that's on fire and *wants* to jump out of the window. People jump out of burning buildings because the alternative is to stay inside a room filled with smoke and unbearable heat and eventually flames which will burn them alive. To a person who is suicidal, endless suffering seems unavoidable; suicide just seems to be the best of two options.

This may spark contraversy.

I have been suicidal. And i still have periods of suicidal ideaology. I'm not afraid to die. I hate my life.

Its a long list, granted. But If i filled in my resume, finished with my writing projects to the point of masterpiece, spent a holiday with my friends and did a couple of good gigs, my life would be complete. Kill me right there.

The only thing that is really stopping me is how much i love my friends and family. The tremendous grief i'd be leaving behind for everyone who knows me is all that stops me from doing it. I love them too much to let them go.

But that is it.

I've never been suicidal. I hardly ever think about death either, but once every so often I think about it and I'm like "fuck".

I am confused religiously so yes I am
I was suicidal not so much now though.
