Suicide among adults is more rare as opposed to teens. Suicide is often preceded by depression. Depression is often triggered by several negative life experiences, and if one does not receive treatment, they may often have the outlook of life to be dull and pointless. This long-running emotion may culminate with a suicide attempt.

These are some of the few reasons one may commit suicide:

  • The death of a loved one.
  • A divorce, separation, or breakup of a relationship.
  • Losing custody of children, or feeling that a child custody decision is not fair.
  • A serious loss, such as a loss of a job, house, or money.
  • A serious illness.
  • A terminal illness.
  • A serious accident.
  • Chronic physical pain.
  • Intense emotional pain.
  • Intense anger about past events or people.
  • Loss of hope.
  • Being victimized (domestic violence, rape, assault, etc).
  • A loved one being victimized (child murder, child molestation, kidnapping, murder, rape, assault, etc.).
  • Physical abuse.
  • Verbal abuse.
  • Sexual abuse.
  • Unresolved abuse (of any kind) from the past.
  • Feeling "trapped" in a situation perceived as negative.
  • Feeling that things will never "get better."
  • Feeling helpless.
  • Serious legal problems, such as criminal prosecution or incarceration.
  • Feeling "taken advantage of."
  • Inability to deal with a perceived "humiliating" situation.
  • Inability to deal with a perceived "failure."
  • Alcohol abuse.
  • Drug abuse.
  • A feeling of not being accepted by family, friends, or society.
  • A feeling of not being loved by parents, family, friends, or society.
  • A horrible disappointment.
  • Feeling like one has not lived up to his or her high expectations or those of another.
  • Bullying. (Adults, as well as children, can be bullied.)
  • Low self-esteem.
  • Paranoia.
  • Mood disorders.

I urge you to call one of the Suicide helplines. This site has numbers in the United States and worldwide:

They often have low self esteem and don't like themselves.

Suicidal ReasonsMany people commit suicide due to a massive lack of self-commitment and self-confidence. Some people are bullied by friends or family, or some people are bullied by themselves (a psychic problem such as hearing voices pushing the person to do things against their will etc.). Most don't realise that their life is important to them and some experience severe depression after the loss of a loved one or financial ruin etc. Another Answer:

In short, there are probably two courses that can lead to suicide, and they may or may not intermingle. One is cessation of pain, either emotional, physical or both. The other is anger. Suicide is a permanent way to inflict hurt on someone who cares for you.
