    No , it should never be an option finding self determination, staying strong to work through problems is. Stay strong!

    It is most definitely a rational option in some cases. You can not say “work through it” to a terminal illness! If you’ve never contemplated suicide then you’ve denied yourself the chance to explore your dark side. If you are healthy, then contemplating is all you should do.

    as a Life Coach I see many young people that want to kill themselves for trivial reasons . I have seen parents of their children that have commited suicide. I feel people should talk it over with others to help see how their decision can be turned around .not with parents , but with like minded others . I’ve seen that work . So sad ! I hope many of these people can be helped by watching the Sea of Trees, thank you
