What does it mean? going for you is pure selfishness” You may have come across this yourself; people who refer to the suicide as “selfish”. People will utter/post phrases such as “to do that to your family is just selfish”, or “to commit suicide when you’ve got so much going for you is pure selfishness”, or variations thereof.

When people say this, they usually mean that people who commit suicide are only thinking about how they feel inside and that's why they decide to end their lives. They believe it is selfish to not decide that their loved ones' feelings are just as important as their own. (The suicide will hurt the loved ones tremendously and possibly even drive them to depression.) It's controversial.
