Michael Laitman, On Quora: “Suicide: Why do people kill themselves?“
People who commit suicide do not want to endure ongoing feelings of frustration and emptiness.
Like any person, they wanted to become fulfilled—and today there are myriad pleasures available to us at the tap of a button—but suicidal people find fulfillment to be completely elusive.
The inner distress they feel within exceeds any sensations that they can receive from anyone else.
What do these people ultimately need?
They need the answer to the meaning of life.
Do our lives have meaning, a goal and a purpose that make our lives worth living? What is our impetus to continue living on in life?
Such questions awaken in certain people, and they drive some people to seek their answers, and some to a pit of desperation, where they would like to invert such questions and sensations, but they cannot, and then they reach the end.
To get answers to the questions about life’s meaning, I recommend checking out the links in my Quora bio, where there is a plethora of courses and other materials available to help people find the answers to life’s deepest questions.
