If someone is in a mindset that they are able to take their own life then unfortunately some might not be thinking about other people, so calling someone selfish is incredibly harsh
Absolutely. For someone to be so low as to be in the frame of mind to even think about it, never mind actually going ahead with the act means that any rational thinking is long gone.
Iv'e seen too many friends and family suffering horribly from serious mental illness and it makes me sick to the stomach when easy throw-away lines are used to label them. The press are just as bad with some of the mind numbingly ludicrous headlines they publish in cases like this.
