I just asked about whether you'd think it was "okay" for other people to commit suicide because I don't think I'd condone it for anyone else ... I'd probably never say, "Yeah... I agree ... resistance is useless!" Except in reference to myself. I was just wondering if you had different standards for your own life & other's lives (like I seem to.) I guess no one in their "right mind" would condone or glorify it, though, for anybody. (I didn't think you were, either, by the way!)

> You mean you never even think of your boss as worthless??? My boss makes us come up with little "wishes" for our office wish book. Funny thing is the only suggestions good enough to go in the wish book are HERS. She means well, though. We wished for new office carpet and a retreat in Hawaii.

Well, you've got me on that one. I DO think my boss is worthless, but that's not because he's my boss (I've had other bosses that were okay) but because he's a bad, bad man. I've tried, but I can't find ANY good in him at all! (I don't think he even means well.) He's so unbelieveably insecure and petty and nasty and he's definitely got more mental problems / social problems than I ever possibly could! Trouble is, I don't think he has any idea how screwed up he is!

About thinking of other people as worthless, though... I meant more like ... um ... "regular" people rather than murderers & criminals. Do you think ANYONE'S/EVERYONE'S life is inherently valuable? I'm not sure if anyone's really is, but my way out of that philisophical alleyway is to figure that I can make that decision about MY OWN life, but not others'. I was just at my friends' daughter's birthday party today ... she's one year old. I just can't/won't believe that her brand new life is as pointless and arbitrary and worthless as mine. Hypocritical, eh?

Of course, I think any self-destructive tendancy is probably a sign or mental illness, right? You're "just not" supposed to want to do yourself in (again, overlooking terminal illnesses, etc. which opens up a whole 'nother can of worms.)

I'd just like to know more about the Psychology of suicide & suicidal thoughts ... and WHY I'M LIKE THIS ... you know? But I don't suppose anyone really knows the "whys."

I dunno ... I'm just curious to see what's running through other people's minds, since this isn't really a subject that I can just chat about with anyone. You know?
