    I wouldn't use words suicide and justified in the same sentence. I don't think anybody who commints suicide is emotionally nor mentally balanced or in "normal state" so suicide is, in my opinion, always a state of "exception" and a "mall-function in brain" caused by depression or other mental illness and therefore a suicide ís not justified in any case, it's just something that happens, and something that should not happen.

    This is purely individual and subjective.

    For example I wouldn't commit suicide right now because what have the people who appear to love me done to me that I should hurt them in this way?

    That's the thing about death of any kind, the true sufferers are those left behind.
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    I think it is always justified. People should be free to make their own decisions regarding how to live (or end) their lives. It will affect others, no doubt, but you are the one that has to live your life, after all.

    This would be the only form of suicide I would be ok with, but even then, just maybe. Years go by though, things change, new stuff pops into your life old stuff flies out of your life, and usually, if stuff cant get any worse, it gets better. If you kill yourself, you don't know what you're missing in the future because there's no way to look into the future and see the best moment of your life that hasn't happened yet.

    What if you killed yourself in highschool? Think of all the stuff in your life that you would've missed. It may have seemed like a good idea at the time but time goes by, life changes, and a lot of stuff happens that you wouldn't miss for the world. Now imagine yourself 10 years in the future thinking about it. That is why suicide is NEVER justified or worth it.

    What the fudge does justified even mean, in this context?

    One has the right to end their life prematurely, regardless of situation.

    Not only that but I think this invasion of people's personal inner space and setting down rules and criticisms is part of what can make someone feel trapped enough to go off and take a bunch of people with them.

    There's better ways to handle this than portraying people as faulty - especially in ways that some might interpret to be controlling or passive aggressive.
