suicide isn't selfish it is taking custody of your own existence when the SELFISH world around isn't bothered about his or her existence and his or her inner feelings.

people that want to commit suicide should just join the army, cause at least they would be doing something for the country.

this was an analogy for suicide. i am in agreement with you.

the only reason i do not support legal euthansia is because vulnerable people may be pressured into it.

I think this is a strawman

Just because something is selfish doesn't mean you shouldn't do it. I'm not an anti-egoist, and I doubt anyone who successfully navigates the world is.

if you want to move to another country for x reason (love, career, new start, old country is oppressive, etc) but it will make your family and friends sad... does that mean you have no choice and must suffer for the emotions of others?

It's selfish because you are giving in to the challenges of life that you couldve overcome or at least endured for better time at the expense of numerous heartbreak of ur family and friends.

Yes it is selfish because the person is doing it for himself but is being selfish bad? I think it is selfish like Almost all human decisions but that is not necessarily a bad thing.

What makes an act selfish? In my view an action is selfish if it achieves a personal goal at the cost of others. That's exactly what suicide is.

If someone is torturing you on the brink of death and they will stop if you provide information on the location of your family because they want to torture them instead (but not as badly as they're torturing you), is it selfish to give them the information? I believe it is

Pain and suffering make it harder to not be selfish, but they don't suddenly make the act not selfish.

I dont think it is because life gets too much for them and they cant deal with it and I was talking about this and they said when they commit suicide they're giving their pain to their family but the pain the feel is nothing compared to if your depressed enough to kill yourself
