If you knew someone that was going to kill them self would you stop them?
That depends on the circumstances. If it was because they had a terminal illness and terrible quality of life with no chance of improvement, then no I'd allow them to do it. Hopefully their means of doing it was conducive to not suffering more and it was going to be 100% successful.
Otherwise I'd take steps to prevent their death.
Yes because if they told me or gave me that impression they were calling out for help.If someone really wants to die,noone would know they would end it.
my bro has OCD and he said something weird that gave me a scare. I told me dad to look after him closely, let me know anything wrong. Gotta do something before too late
Being the quintessential Libra, I have two answers to this:
If the person in question was depressed and suicidal, I would try to get them some help.
If the person was terminally ill, and wanted to end their life on their own terms, I would not interfere.
The answer to this question is yes, I will try and stop someone from killing themselves if I knew. But if the person is terminally ill and want to stop his or her suffering, I won't stop him or her. It really depends on how the situation is but if I knew someone who is suicidal, I will try and help them to stop. Sometimes when we are faced with problems that somehow feels like it is not going to be solved, we think of just ending it all. But dying is not the answer to our problems.
I would try. Life is a very rare and precious thing. I can think of no greater crime than throwing it away. I couldn't possibly know what that person has been through (that led them to suicide), but I would certainly try to help.
