    Solving and facing your problems in life is considered more difficult than killing yourself.

    Some people believe that a person who commits suicide is backing out of life and not finding a solution for their problems.  People do not understand that depression is an illness and when someone commits suicide they actually feel like they are doing everyone a favor.  A person who is that depressed does not think rationally.  They think they are actually doing the right thing and no longer dragging everyone else down.  I am not saying suicide is the right decision; I am just saying depression is an illness and clouds a person's way of thinking.

    They call it that because they see suicide as "running away" from their problems. I'm against suicide, but I don't necessarily think it's as cowardly as they say. Everyone has tough times in their lives that need to be dealt with, but some problems can't be fixed. Terminal diseases are a good example. Some people would rather end it on their own terms than suffer in a hospital bed for the last few months. Their death would be sad either way, but I wouldn't consider it 'cowardly' in a situation like that.

    I would not describe someone taking their own life as "having guts."  Suicide, like murder, is a result of something gone wrong in the thought processes of a person. It may be despair, depression, mental illness, anger....a myriad of things but in the end the person is not thinking logically because logical thinking people do not commit murder or suicide.  The reference to the "coward's way out" simply indicates that the person was more willing to take their own life than face the problems or preceived problems of their life. Here again, I don't think it is a fair description because I don't feel the person committing the act is applying any sound logic to arrive at a decision...he/she is not electing anything...they are acting simply on emotion which is running out of control.
