Did you know that's the Hindu take on it? Part of the reason we are reborn is to continue to learn, and to finish what we were doing in previous lives. It's like a story arc in a tv show. The main theme of the show (the life) is there but sub-plots carry over life to life. To check out early simply sets the soul back.

You need to figure out why you think about this and find some way to think about living your life, being ok and loving the people who love you. So, if you decide to do this you need to remember that it is not just about you, it is about everyone you have encountered and interact with. Whether you get counseling or not, you are ultimately the one who has to figure out how to be ok.
I agree with this, cause our lives are more than about ourselves, but the people we have in it, (even if they are strangers that we encounter.) And to figure out the root that causes those thoughts that come up, I found that perhaps some part of them feels inadequate, not sufficient enough. I feel that's more of a fear, fear of the unknown, fear the worse to come of "what will come" - so they feel that they will just let other's down and ultimately make them feel helpless. Which they aren't helpless, it's just a matter of them seeing past that.

Out of interest, Rickswordfish, what would you hope to achieve by killing yourself?

Or what are you trying to avoid?

Peace.

If we have free will - as it is said - then it shouldn't be a problem.

Unless of course it's 'free will but...' - which rather upsets the apple cart.

@linen53 My cousin told me something similar and she did try to commit suicide 3 times, that is why she told me about her past life. She never had it easy but a lot of it was in her head. She turned to drugs and religion to keep from feeling the pain.

Hi WildHairedWoman.

One of my most prominent life lessons I had to learn in this life was about victimhood.

Getting out of my own pity party came in stages. Buy boy am I glad I learned that lesson.

Learning that I actually chose the bad things that happened to me this lifetime took the focus off of my perpetrators and put responsibility directly on me. They were merely the instruments to set the stage for my life lessons.

So far I get an A+.

The star of the movie committed suicide by hanging in real life, in the movie his wife committed suicide, did his spirit contacted anyone on SF?
That would be very interesting and for some entertainment if it is not unethical, who will start a thread were deceased celebrities are able to tell their stories?

I SO BELIEVE WHAT YOU SAID! We CHOOSE our experiences, not always conciously, but due to our inner beliefs. I've tried to explain that to many kids, (I was a HS teacher) but a true victim doesn't want it to stop, they can't be a victim that way, LOL At the end of the day it is an attention seeking behavior. I always say: "Why do you hit yourself in the head with a hammer?" Because it feels SO GOOD when you stop!
