When you see discussions about suicide on the web, you always get folks saying it's "not the answer." That it is "not an option." Like they know what they're talking about.
I will bet you $100 that not one of these people has succeeded in committing suicide. That's the problem, no one knows if it's a good option, because frankly anyone who's done it is unavailable for comment.
Sure you can talk about failed attempts and the misery they cause, but I feel like that's beating around the bush a little.
People talk about how permanent suicide is, but usually the discussion doesn't go into the fact that death is always permanent. And we will all die. Sometimes it seems to me that the only way to escape our utter powerlessness in the face of our own mortality would be to choose the time and manner of our death, and take care of it immediately.
"Things will get better" is another thing people say. Will they? How do you know?
"You have so much to live for." Do I? How the hell do you presume to know that?
I find more and more that I admire the stigmatized and pitied in society... the ones who took their own lives rather than try to force themselves back down into a delusional dream of immortality and relevance.
