Life, Death, and the Gray Areas: My Unconventional Stance on Suicide

Life, Death, and the Gray Areas: My Unconventional Stance on Suicide

April 3, 2024 0

Suicide is a complex topic, often painted in broad strokes. Yet, I find myself seeing it in shades of gray rather than black and white. Let’s unpack this.

Firstly, let’s be clear—I’m not here to romanticize suicide or offer it as a solution. No, sir. I firmly believe in extending a helping hand to those grappling with mental health demons. Suicide prevention? Absolutely. It’s about pulling people back from the brink of despair.

Here’s another side to the coin—those who sacrifice everything for a cause they hold dear. Picture soldiers on the front lines or activists fighting for change. It’s not about giving up; it’s about giving their all for something bigger than themselves.

Here is where I have a strong point of view, which is Euthanasia and that it must be a right. A right to choose birth can only be valid if you have a right to choose the end of it.

Now, I’m not advocating for reckless abandon. There are lines we shouldn’t cross, boundaries we must respect. You can’t just punch your ticket to the afterlife without consequences. It can not be a cowardly act, nor can it be simply a case of chemical imbalance. But if, and only if, one reaches a point where they have achieved all they set out to do or are willing to lay it all on the line for a cause, well, that’s a different story. It’s about finding peace on one’s own terms, not succumbing to despair.

So, where do I stand? Simply put, I’m all about seizing the day, chasing dreams, and living life to its fullest. If ever I find myself fulfilled and with nothing more to add, no way that I can add value or something can add value to my life, I hope I am left at peace.

Life’s a journey, my friends. Let’s embrace it, support each other, and navigate the twists and turns together.

Until next time,
