I obviously have suicidal tenancies or I probably would not have signed up to the forum, but this is not a new thing, I have been thinking about taking the final step near every day for 2 years. So what am I talking on a forum for and not doing it (as my brother did), well I have a few questions that may change my outlook (it has not yet). 1) Why not? - We are all going to die, every single living thing on the planet up until this moment has died, all them people telling you not to jump, will also die. 2) Euthanasia ? - Practice of intentionally ending a life in order to relieve pain and suffering, seems to be a acceptable way to go if I was in great physical pain, but not if your have emotional pain. 3) How many people live lives that are worth saving, seriously, hospitals are full of people that want to be healed to either improve quality of there lives or save it, for what - they are going to die sooner or later anyway. Do you know anyone that you can honestly say it will be a tragedy when they die, yes no doubt people will cry and so on, but im talking about someone that has a full life - to sofa dwellers. There will be some but I have not met one as yet. 4) Whats the point of it all? Common question on this forum I bet. Study from primary school, to get good grades for secondary school, study harder for University, now you have degree, you can now buy stuff you dont need and teach your kids to do as you did. 5) Life is about experiencing things ? What difference does it make when your dead. An analogy was two guys go on holiday (vacation) for 2 weeks, guy 1 comes back after week 1 and misses all the good times guy 2 had in his second week. Now if we look at a real life scenario I have had experience with, my fathers friend (James) was a twin which died during the war (Sean), one of the twins lived a long life (James), does anyone think they will meet up in heaven and James will explain all the things Sean missed. My point being its not like an investment, it will make no difference whats so ever if you will until 200 years old and experience everything life has to offer, when your dead thats it, no comparison of holiday photos on this trip. 6) Cowards way out ? I dont think so, it has to be one of the hardest things anyone can do, every cell in your body is telling you no, the reason you will pull your hand out of the flame is because it has a self defence mechanism. 7) Think of the trauma you cause your family. I have experienced this before as I have had a brother that did this in the 80's, but to be honest when your dead you will not feel guilt as its just an emotion, which will die with you. Your thoughts would be appreciated.
