Why is the idea of suicide looked down on. we now live in a world where people can choose to be whatever or whoever thay want to be. Why cant i choose to be dead . I might be wro g but it seems like we are only kept alive to work make people money and die. So its selfishness and greed that looks down on suicide.

There are beautiful aspects of life that we have been rendered less perceptive to, due to growing up in a more lab-like environment.

The central authority would rather we be eaten by dogs if we don’t contribute to it. But that is not in our interest: I believe that it is natural that each person desires to live in a nice house with a garden, with a nice spoue, in a nice community. And truly nobody likes politics, it’s just a thing of the central earthly authority.

I have been thinking of this too. We are told that taking our on life is a sin that it’s a horrible thing to do. We are told to consider and think about the people we are leaving behind. But who is thinking about us, about what we are going through forced to live a life we don’t wish to continue?

Suicide ends all our earthly misery. Suicide keeps us from wronging another. I can see no error in either of these ideas. If we can be what we say we are and death comes to all, then why not death.
Now the politicians and business people see us as human inventory, well suited to their purposes. Birth rates are at historic lows and those in power are trying to preserve their inventory of working and fighting aged people to the largest percentage of population possible.
Because the vast majority has only seriously contemplated suicide during a deep sorrow following a recent loss they have no experience with the perpetual sorrow we live with. They want to preserve their lives and believe we would too if we were in our right minds. Given where we have been, we are in our right minds.
That said, I was frustrated in my bid to depart, determined it unlikely to succeed if I tried again, and just as the ignorant majority wishes, I found a therapist instead. It pains me to admit it, but I practically live to get to the next appointment. It also pains me to admit that I have some personal value to others as a living human. I will live for as long as it remains reasonable to do so.
There were some cultures in times and places long ago and far away that at least appeared to accept suicide, but not so now anywhere. So for us in our pain today, we are denied all but the violent means as reliable ways of departure.
All that said, I am still not sure if I have bought in to or sold out to living. But I really like my therapist, who in turn gave me courage to get a job I really like and I find serving others and a few cats to be rewarding. So I now carry the memories that almost took me to the grave and the vast encouragement of a therapist who has broadened my horizons. Now both the bad past and the good present live in my head together, with the present gradually edging out the bad bad past.

There are many reasons why most “common people” view suicide as bad. One of them is transposition. They will view their “perfect” lives, then wonder why you could not attain the same level of happiness. Another is they fear death. If death is the everlasting peace, then there is really nothing to fear. Another reason: religion (no need to explain that one). Ultimately, I think a lack of compassion is actually the problem. If someone is in constant pain (mentally depressed, crippling physical states, etc) why can he not choose to end his life? Even if not in pain, but simply chooses this path, do we not stand for freedom and free will? It is his life, it is his choice. I do not tell people how to live the lives, why should they tell us how to live ours?

The idea of leaving on my own terms is extremely appealing. A friend left in her own terms about 18 months ago. Folks gnashed thier teeth and screamed why? She was so selfish. No she wasn’t. She just left on her own terms and you can’t control that kind if thing.
