One of the most common topics surrounding suicide is selfishness. The main argument is that suicide is selfish and thereby makes the person committing in cowardly and generally a 'bad' person in some way. However, people rarely talk about the selfishness of wanting someone in pain to stay alive - probably because the conversation around suicide is left predominantly to the loved ones of those who have committed or attempted suicide, so the question:
Which is more selfish?
1. Committing suicide and leaving your loved ones in pain.
2. Wanting your suicidal loved one to stay alive in pain for your sake.
