But the important question is to ask whether its right to compare problems people have or not?

It helps me. I have genetically determined (I hope I wright it right) depression, I have tried to commit suicide 3 times in my life. So I know how it is not to like who you are and where you are. It helps me to think that I am happy to be what I am.
Everybody have problems, I feel mine is not the biggest, and I dont want to be lame one, who cant stand it, if others can stand 3 times more.
If it dont help you, sad. But I dont think that God will punish you for suicide.

Only I think there were something about those kind of themes in the forum rules...

It all depends on what path you follow. If you follow the Bible it clearly states you will be sent to hell for eternal damnation. In other religions I believe it is the same concept. But if you are contiplating suicide then you need to see a psychiatrist or your therapist.

in suffering one should spread love not more suffering. suicide is the greatest act of violence and hatred one can commit. naturally the more suffering you spread the more suffering will be returned on you, so in suicide you will be gained suffering for it.

And what might that suffering be?! Fire and brimstone? or being sent back into another body you obviously don't desire?

Or would his suffering be taken into account and somewhat things would end up better this time?

From my understanding, the only one to judge you is you yourself and there is no harsher judge than oneself.

Each one of us has an allotted time here on earth, should we choose to end our life before our time, it has been said that we have to return to finish our time here. For example, say our allotted time was sometime during the age of 76, and we took our own life, for whatever reason at the age of 35, we would still have to make up for those years i.e. 41 years.

There are lessons to learn here, many are very difficult ones, it's all part and parcel of our lives.

I like spiritualism and religious faith because it becomes a source of hope when life becomes a struggle. Whatever one's particular beliefs are, we can always think of reasons to stick to the fight, to push on, when times are hard. I find that the more reasons we have, the better off we are. Hope is the shining light on our lives that gives us the strength to press on, to look for solutions, and to become more than what we are. Faith, love and compassion are the armor that protects the most important part of us, our humanity.

I'm sure it won't help you, but I enjoy neither my body or my looks. I was made plain. I've never been chatted up in my life and when I was slim, (I'm not terribly overweight now, but I am overweight) I never got noticed. When we played kiss chase at school, when I was a teenager, the boys always ran and kissed the other girls, never me. Poor, poor me...!

I think in a past life I was an absolute bit*h and decided this life I should be plain and unnoticed!

Now, as for my body....lets not even bother going there....... Lol
