@cjko the fact a banana gets dark spots doesn't mean it is rot. I understand there's a whole stigma around the banana's dark spots, which states that it is rotten and you're likely to die if you put your mouth in it, but I actually like that and I'm still here alive.
I can understand suffering so badly with little or no hope of pain relief that the final out may be a reasonable decision.
But with emotional pain we tend to prevent the individual from harming themselves and instead insist on treatment.
And what of the elderly? Often times they are not terribly suffering when they receive proper care, but they can easily feel tremendous guilt for, in their opinion, placing an undue burdon on their family.
What if the only reason the ill or elderly feels this way is due to constant discouragement from the family members that hope to inherit?
We have a right to life. Do we have a right to death?
Yes, except for when it's desired due to depression?
Is not suicide the peak extreme consequence of depression?
Do we have the right to impose life and death on another counter to how they feel?
What of relegious reasons? Consider, what was it called, Heaven's Gate? Those whom killed themselves in California because they believed that a properly timed death as a comet passed would ensure they would be able to ride the comet's tail to heaven.
What litmus test, if any, is to be applied to those that wish to exercise a death-right? Are they to be burried in sound-mind psychological tests and application paperwork that would instill depression into them if they aren't already depressed?
If you have a right to
To me the subject Right to Die and where to draw legal lines is as troubling and as much a no-clear-answer as the question of abortion restrictions.
I would prefer very much not to be "remembered".
I found out that to be remembered can be heavy.
It's harder to live up to the standards of those who died, than to those of them still alive. One can almost always ask forgiveness of living people.
How does one do? I made a promess and since the woman I made it to died, I've no other choice but to follow it: no "chance to explain why I could not keep it". So the bar stays as high as it could ever get.
I think if you have control over your mind, you can persevere through most hard things.
like having good impulse control over addictive behaviors (constant social media usage for example) is the start. Then you slowly become self aware of addictive thoughts (social judgement for example) then you start controlling that.
Now, the only way it seems to actually CONTROL (misleading word) is to actually just stop doing it. Then you keep doing NOT doing it then it becomes a lifestyle. Then your brain will be hardwired to be self sufficient and truly independent --> you become a superhuman?
if you get there, you can then actually do long term gratification things rather than bunch of small nothings.
So, to sum up,
you identify addictive behaviors
you identify addictive thoughts stemming from the behavior
you detach/let go/stop doing whatever it is
you get used to not doing these very very fun and bad stuff for long enough
you are more able to persevere through long term projects in life (however, relapse is possible)
its not that you control anything, its that you aren't controlled by anything
