Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem

Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem.  Never, never, never consider it as an option to difficulties in your life as those difficulties will pass and you will miss out on the great joys that are to follow.  In this great democracy you can accomplish anything you set your mind to.  You can be anything you want to be.  No shortcuts please.  HMGGMH

One response to “Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem

    As I read “Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem,” a memory jumped out at me. I once quoted that phrase to a friend because it so perfectly expressed what I felt about suicide. We were arguing about the morality of suicide at the time, and she became very upset with me when I said that. She had a rough time in her earlier high school years and had thought about suicide. She decided against it, and went on in college to have intellectual arguments with me. But this was an issue very close to her, and when I parrotted that phrase, it was as if I was trivializing her difficulties– taking her individual suffering and simply dismissing it as a temporary issue as a matter of course. It really made me think. So, I agree that there’s a lot of potential in one’s life, so many options, but I also think the pain that leads to suicide cannot be treated lightly.
