Skep B Posted August 17, 2014 #126 Share Posted August 17, 2014 Ask someone who's been to that point and didn't do it or didn't successfully die a few years after the fact and I think you'll have your answer. They are glad they didn't. Death is final. While alive there is a possibility of making your life worth living. Once you're dead it's too late. Your common question about suicide shows that you actually have never given it much real thought. Keep it that way. The only legit reason for ending it all is if you have a terminal debilitating disease which is reaching it's final stage and soon you won't have the ability to do it yourself. To kill yourself because you feel like you can't be happy is just mental illness which can be overcome many different ways for the vast majority of people. Funny you say that, I think about it quite a bit. WHy? noones's business. But I do, I just don't put stock in the emotional connections people have with suicide. I agree for what it's worth that death is final and blah blah all that. But, you're now ok with the idea of terminal illness doing it. So I think that answers my question. it's a question of priorities. as much as its your choice to end your life, its other peoples individual choices that allows it to affect them one way or another. Being angry at someone who commits suicide is as emotional a reaction as someone choosing to commit suicide. Neither of them are going to make anyone live a better life.
