Tsk tsk, we must teach people to channel those emotional situations into hatred
Instead of killing yourself, kill others! or something
I jest, but of all things in this world from plants to animals to humans, friends, foes, neighbors, enemies -- we all strive for one thing unconditionally: to survive.
Suicide comes to humans with the idea that it is a way out from a potentially unseen future. To take a radical spin on it: a soldier captured in war, who KNOWS his enemy will torture him and eventually kill him, would rather die at his own hands than suffer further.
However, it is the inability for some to appropriately gauge the situation that they are in. For this soldier may be rescued, unbeknownst to him. Whether or not the soldier can determine if rescue is possible is the key factor.
A person feels that life is no longer worth living, because nothing could ever be any better, and will only go worse, however as most people will point out, life is what you make of it. However that person, may determine that there is no plausible way that things could get better.
I beg to differ. Life is a gift, living your life is a challenge, an honor, and a means to discover oneself.
You live your life to honor yourself, your family, your work, your ideals and beliefs. You live your life in a manner to challenge yourself, through peril, tribulation, joys, defeats, and victory. You live to defend your ideals, you live to embrace your beliefs and stand up for them. You have plenty of reasons to live... but once again, life is what you make of it.
I believe it is a human's responsibility to themselves and to nature to strive, to perservere, and to live. Live to see the next day, live to accomplish your goals, live to do what you want.
That soldier can fight. In the very least he can die trying to live.
Terminally ill? Work to do the things you want to do. fight or die trying.
Life is hard? Life is sad? Work to turn it around into your favor, or die trying.
But don't give up, for that makes existance meaningless. Because that means you've wasted everyone's time. If you concede, you are wasting the valuable, precious time that your family, your parents, your friends, your teachers have invested into YOU.
My two cents. Now if only others could see it the same way.
