Suicide by SnaiLords Suicide by SnaiLords
Hahah, as you know, my humor is darker than my soul.
But this dark humor keeps me alive all these years. Hope is a beautiful thing <3
That and the desire to see the first snow fall for the first time in my life. =)
Which ironically once I saw it, I effing hate it. Shoveling snow. Eff that.
Did I just share a black star? Maybe.

Now suicide is a touchy subject. I'm going to touch it. Touching "Do not touch" signs are one of my favorite things to do.

I actually am all for "A person's life is his/her to end. Their lives. Their choices." There's no use asking someone who lost the will to live to go through life an empty shell......
with that being said. I have nothing else to back up.

Other than, now fantasize about your own death, who would be the first to discover your body? How distraught would they be? Think of a person who loves you most. Imagine the expression, the scar you'd cut so deep into their hearts, by leaving abruptly. Think of the tears they'd cry from missing you. 

Now back away from the tool you're about to end your life with.

Think. The scent of your favorite food. The breeze at your favorite place. The sound of a loved one calling your name.

Back. The eff. Away from the tool you're going to end your life with.

Think. One reason. I don't care how trivial. That you would want to hold on to life to see the next sunrise. And the next. And the next. 

You're still reading this. Then you're searching for someone to stop you. Look in the mirror. Have you mistreated someone else in your life? Why would you mistreat that person staring back at you? That person deserves to be happy. Not dying alone by his/her own hands.

7 billions people in the goddamn world. One more person dying doesn't even matter. And yet, here I am, giving a crap whether you live or die. I don't even know you.

Think how devastated someone who actually knows and cares for you would be once they learn you've taken your own life.

I am all for "A person's life is his or her own to take" However, before you do, don't.

I disagree that suicide is never the answer but this was actually really funny

I know I'm a cynic and this sentence would make me four times dead but I just shrug and say "Let the problem handle itself.". We're overpopulated as it is. 
And yes, I'm a terrible hypocrite (people I hate more than gum in my hair) as I'm still not over my soulmate's suicide (soon 20 years). 
And no, suicide isn't the answer. The answer is to grow a back bone, rise up, look what you have left and start over. Every time time life beats you to face and ground and runs you over with a bulldozer just get up, look what you have left and go with that. If you have nothing left, go with that. Yeah, easier said than done but it's not impossible. 
Mad to this? Go read the first five words and have a hug. 

(And yes, I was violently bullied for 13 years. On ninth year I started to fight back and I was the one who ended in trouble. Later on, on adult life I've met several of my bullies and they bullied me because they were insecure that I seemed to be brave and have my own mind and not do what others did. SEEMED. So think what you seem to have as a strength that they might want/fear. Then make it your strength.)

I remember considering this shit once. One side of me was like, "MMM YES YEAH BABY SUICIDE MM YEAH SO TANTALIZING MMMM YEAH" and the other side was like, "ew nah bro". And right before I finally let myself end, my happy side of my brain was like, "what about all those people that care about you?" And the depressing side was like, "WAT"
Depressing side: WHO
Happy Side: Her best friend
Depressing Side: Bu-
Happy side: her FRIENDS
Depressing side: Wa-
Happy side: HER PARENTS
Depression: I--
Depression: 0-0 okay
So yeah needless to say I DIDNT throw myself off a bridge and suicide IS NOT the answer, and never will be
Great comic
I liked it! ^_^
Gets the point across
LUV your stuff
Have a nice day...

I really like the sense of humor with this.  Its a very comedic and daring (with our society, to make fun of something so serious is frowned upon and its quite nice to see someone push that off the cliff with both middle fingers up and a dark grin on their face) and it actually made me laugh.
ArtNoobly Featured By Owner Nov 5, 2014  Hobbyist General Artist
First time I tried to kill myself was when I was nine, and the last time I tried when I was 17.

Things seem a lot harder when you are younger because you can "see ahead" 

I know it's hard, and it doesn't always go smoothly, or get better right away, but if you fight hard enough, it will get better. 

On a more morbid/funny topic, don't try to hang yourself. 

All I got out of it was whiplash, a sore arse, and a bad headache. -___-

No one knows the right way to hang themselves anymore. lol

suicide is the worst crime to do to yourself and to all who love you, and especially to the anime makers who work their heads off to bring you the next episode... 

the last bit was the most significant, maybe.

Superinsanewolf Featured By Owner Sep 19, 2014  Student Traditional Artist
Ok. So I find that the most cowardly thing to ever do in life is to take yourself out. Now before anyone says anything, yes I know people think there's no other way out. That's where I call bullshit. No matter how tough life gets it gives you no reason or right to take your life. If anyone reading this is thinking about killing yourself, stop, and think about what it might do to your friends, family, or anyone else that may care about you. They won't be better off, your death will destroy them from the inside. So please for your sake and others. Don't do it.

Your comics are so easy to relate to that it makes me want to pour out my life. in each comment. probably not a problem but its quite a something. I have had times of depression that make me think about suicide, but i have never actually attempted it. Knives, especially when they are very sharp, can be tempting sometimes.
YusakuJon3 Featured By Owner Aug 14, 2014  Hobbyist Artist
In light of what happened with comedian Robin Williams (a favorite of mine, though I wasn't aware of his problems until they mentioned them in the media), I'm also flashing back to younger cousins who also took themselves out.  To me, suicide is the ultimate selfish act.

Why not tough it out, no matter how hard it is?  I'd rather not be so selfish that I harm the ones who actually care for me before seeing if I could overcome adversity.  Chances are, we can laugh at the adversity as we live through it, and come out stronger and wiser for it.
Hi-there6 Featured By Owner Edited Aug 13, 2014
My friends all think about doing suicide, like all the time. This scares me greatly because none of them believe anyone would care if they died. And they think that their life will be better after being ended. Next time one of them is having a really bad time I plan on showing them this. Thank you, you are going to most likely save them for a bit longer or in your words to see the next sunrise.

Thank you for this, camazing. I never read the artist comments when I first saw this in my inbox, but I'm glad I had. This really speaks to me on a personal level. Thank you.
LoulouS2 Featured By Owner Aug 1, 2014
I find it almost "happy" that I'm not alone in having dark humor. Sometimes I feel horrible about myself for what fu**ed up humor I can have.
I've been through so many suicides when it comes to my family (Geez such go happy in mah family.)
It never get easy to learn the fact about it. Still there was nothing I could do.
If a person decides to do it, for real. No one can realy stop that. That "thought" is something that person kinda own.
So I agree "A person's life is his or her own to take".
But everyone that have that thought should think about it. Realy just, Think about it.

Yes, yes, effing yes. Thank you SO MUCH SnailLords for addressing this topic. 

Coming from someone who was talked out of suicide at length years ago by someone i admired but barely knew (my parents never found out and still don't know about it), i heart this post so sdfknsfkjlsdfjk much. I honestly care little about myself (more than i used to though), but I've come to realize that suicide affects everyone around you, and i couldn't stand knowingly hurting other people.

Plus, I've also been on the other side of that coin too. I've been left to help with damage control by a different person whom i knew very well that decided to commit suicide. 

It's like a large rock being thrown into a quiet pond- the ripple affects everything it touches. If not for yourself, think of everyone you know and some whom may not even realize that it would damage. It really truly sucks being the one left behind.

I'm one of those people who struggle with life on a daily basis, but love to be a shoulder for others to lean on when they cant stand on their own. >.<

The only reason I never ended it was because my parents would have to spend so much money on the funeral, the counseling for whoever found me, and just getting rid of all of my stuff. I'm happy I didn't know. I'm starting my first semester of college, I've been dating the same guy for a year and a half now, and I'm recording music with a friend . It's looking good for the moment!
Word of advice. Find something to work towards. No matter how outlandish and impossible, it will help you. My goal is to make it big enough to play Warped Tour or become a logo artists for big companies. Focus on doing what you love. It helps!

willowspritex3 Featured By Owner Jul 19, 2014
I completely agree with this. Gawd, this is why you're amazing. I've had a few friends who tried to off themselves and it always really disappointed me and made me super depress. But, even so, I never told them that they're stupid for wanting to do that. I was always the one who listened and tried to understand from their perspective. I feel like some people just want someone who will listen to them. In the end, I always try to make thing better and uplifting. Which will work most of the time. I'm known for making things better I guess.
I used to get mad when people depended on me too much, as if expecting me to fix their problems. I'm always the person people come to. Even when my life is also miserable, and I'm not as experienced as they are nor do I have the best advice. But I guess I could understand why they'd come to me. People always say I make things better, that I'm always cheerful and have the best humor. But I just sit there and wonder, even the happiest people can be the most depressed and troubled.
