I was just thinking.. And I feel this way often. Suicide can be a very irrational way of escaping your problems. For this reason particular (but not souly for this reason alone)
Point being.. You are going to die anyways!
I’m not trying to be illogical, ignoring how people feel and the terminally ill.
But it’s true..you are guaranteed to die, wether it’s in the next few days or weeks or in 90+ years from now..it’s going to happen.
There are manny reasons people would not want to live, mostly these reasons revolve around Situation, Declination, and Mindset.
But in any situation, in any level of desperation..Mindset is key in staying alive.
Mindset is where your rationality can make or brake you.
If you are just feeling lost and confused.. You need to gain a bit of confidence and take control of your life, not try to end it before it starts. My life didn’t really “begin” till I was about 19. There’s a lot of life to be lived even after that. There is tons of self searching to be done as well. You might feel like killing yourself now but that will all change soon enough.
If you are feeling desperate and you don’t think you can face your situation, if you really want out.. Then do what you have to do to get out..but do it from the confines of this life.. You can still run away! In my mind..that’s still a choice when you consider killing yourself. There is a whole world out there to see, and maybe a better life awaits. Hopefully chance finds you saving up and forming a plan to escape your current situation. Take the time to do it carefully..after all..my point is to keep a rational mindset.
There is no point in going over the many definitions and variations of the word “rational” because many people will have a different perspective on what constitutes rational thought and separates it from irrational thought.
Regardless of my own sub-perspectives of life, I’d have to say that no matter what, a person ending their own life prematurely is very irrational..especially when that person is perfectly aware of all the opportunities that life can offer in the long run.
My hat goes off to those who live every day in pain and misery. You might think that living any longer is the actual irrationality, but no matter what, every day you live shows that you are stronger and meant for more than those who kill themselves for less.
Thank you for reading
