Are you expecting an honest reply to an age old question from people
you don't know or who fear that saying 'no' would cause you (assuming
you are asking because you are contemplating) to do something stupid
(in their opinion)?

And why would anyone care about other's opinion on such a question
when they won't even trust another person with say their taste in
clothing or color or even the simplest of things?

And would a person who is going to be dead be able to care of such an

So answers to such a question would be just like a poll of no

i tried to ask as normally as possible >_> so people would answer without needing to wonder about why i was asking :p
i just couldn't decide what my answer to that question would have been. so i wanted to know what other people thought and why. and you sir didn't answer :p
also, IFFFFF i was ACTUALLY going to kill myself, the opinions of others wouldn't mean shit :p even my opinion wouldn't mean shit. cause personally i think killing yourself does make you a coward >_> it makes you weak and pathetic (but i apply that only to myself XD) other peoples reasons for wanting to die to me can be justifiable (not the actual dying, just their reasons for wanting to). i mean i wouldn't judge them on it no matter WHAT their reasons are. only, its not justifiable for me. ever. for any reason.

The act of committing suicide is justifiable to who? Would living on while suffering be justified to loved ones or society? Would it be justified to self?

You can't exactly judge someone who's dead.
Well, you can, but what's the point?

I don't think it makes you a coward, takes balls in itself to kill yourself, it makes you selfish though I would think.

ah yes, i forgot about it making you selfish.
and yes guess it would take balls to actually be successful at it >.>

IMHO, I don't think so. Remember that our preservation instincts are much stronger that our own self, and when you take the resolution to end your life, that means that the level of despair you live with overcame that instincts. Alexandre Dumas once said:

If God were suddenly condemned to live the life which He has inflicted upon men, He would kill Himself.

But I'll say those kind of people are not cowards... they are plain idiots.
