Should You Kill Yourself to Be With A Loved One Who Has Died ?

It is common for many who grieve to contemplate suicide to be with their loved one who has died.

The loss of a spouse, child, parent, or very close loved one can be a particularly dangerous time for those who already have suicidal depression. The risk of suicide can be increased for a number of years.

A person's beliefs about death and the afterlife could make a difference. But sometimes in the midst of great sorrow and loss, a person can lose sight of their long held beliefs.

I could not look up into God's stars and night sky for at least 3 years after I lost my beloved husband.

But I knew that my husband absolutely did not want me to kill myself after he died. He made me promise.

He wanted me to live on and be happy and make the most of the rest of my life.  I would have wanted the same for him.  As long as I am taking my supplements and they are still working for me, I can keep my promise.

If you are lost in the misdst of grief and not thinking right, you must look to your loved one for the answer.

What would this person want for you ?
Would your death honor their life and death ?

  • Would your loved one want you to kill yourself -
    to end your life - to be with him or her ?

Think of it in reverse.

  • If you were to die first, would you want your loved one
    to commit suicide to be with you in an afterlife ?

Other thoughts to consider:

My hubby reminded me of this one:  If our loved ones are somewhere in an afterlife, time doesn't matter, they are in no hurry.

If fear of the afterlife helps you stay here, it could serve a good purpose. Some fears can be healthy:  We still really don't know if we would end up in the same afterlife - if the modes of death were different i.e. natural death -vs- suicide.
