For him to live this way, is his own struggle.
For people who are suffering from mental struggle everyday not to die, is their own struggle.
and it's people who think that their physical struggles are harder than those of mental struggles, need to rethink what is suffering.

I think quite a number of people experience suicidal feeling at a certain part of their life, some people just forget about it and move on. (I don't have a reliable statistics for it, just based on the stories told by my friends about their past.)
People need to understand that the level of tolerance for each person is different. To most people, it might just be a silly / simple thing, but to the person experiencing it, it could mean the whole world.
Human is weak, that's why we need one another. Nobody born to be strong. We learn to be strong.
how to exit it.. you being an adult, should know better than to spout negativity and preach about embracing your unhappiness.
obviously, i cannot see eye to eye with your viewpoint of life. i have better things to do than try to understand that viewpoint.
this is not to say that there are pitiful cases out there. one of my schoolmates had a broken family, his father beat up his mother, and beat him up too. he tried to resolve it, he tried to help, but he was 13 or 14, in the end he couldn't take it, so he jumped.
compare this to cutting your hair , or cca problems. 任性 has to be the phrase that comes to mind. learn quickly in life that you cannot get what you want all the time, that is a fact, that will not change from childhood all the way to death. dying changes nothing. it is a silly act and the worst way to handle the situation. but of course, some people are more silly than others.
you will not suffer any mental anguish. being a burden to your family, having to do so much more to complete a single act than the average person, all the loved ones around you suffering because of you. no, losing the ability to walk is a simple, easy struggle. so is losing the ability to vocalise, to move, to even hold a glass of water.
i applaud your extremely sound logic.
Nisa, what makes you feel that way?
frankly though, if the school rules are that girls should keep their hair short, etc, and there is flaunting of the discipline, you have to understand the teacher's point of view.
if the rules are not enforced, then why rules in the first place? if one rule is given exception, what happens to the others? laws in society run on the same purpose, on a case by case basis. if your sister had no valid reason to keep her hair, and refused to cut it (and i'm assuming that is the case).. then i think that as an elder sister, you should worry about her threats to die, both in the direct sense, and in the sense that she is taking her hair way too seriously, even for a young child.
that said, some school rules are sometimes perceived as inflexible, etc; in which case i'm sure there are avenues if there is valid cause for concern. if one has a will, one has a way.

rules are important but some teachers take the rules to bias against students . it happens pretty often , just that no one knows ((:
It just sounds ... I dunno ... 'HARD'.
Your views ... sounds 'hard'.
