Warning: a sensitive topic
I don’t want to encourage anyone into anything stupid or reckless. If you’re in danger of hurting yourself, please ask for help – you can do so here.
I wish I could have the opportunity to die when I want and the way I want, which is through euthanasia.
Just one of the reasons for this is that I’m afraid to die through suicide.
The path to this is not easy but can be done if you’re very ill and have enough money to pay for this luxury (you can read more about this under further reading below).
There is also a suicide – I have already failed when I wanted to die through this (obviously), so my fear of something going wrong this way increased, and I’m not even trying anymore. It’s not so easy to kill yourself, as some might imagine.
I’m also against this way of death because it might be even more painful for friends and relatives.
This didn’t come overnight
I struggle with my mental health for a long time and I’m really tired of this.
My long story short is the neverending existential crisis which came from my inability to cope with my inner parts after CPTSD.
Why are so many people against euthanasia?
I’ve done research about suicide in Slovenia and came to the economic aspect of suicide (among others).
The answer might lie here somewhere.
How much is one person worth in the terms of money?
Experts still disagree on this. A person who commits suicide is a burden to society , as his work no longer contributes to it.
The economic value of life is expected to increase throughout childhood. It reaches its highest value at the beginning of the productive period, and around the age of 45, it drops to zero. This value of life is expressed by the amount of money society loses if a person dies too quickly. However, even here, experts are not unanimous. The question also arises as to how to calculate it.
So, here is the answer. People must not die of free will, because they won’t make the money anymore nor will they spend other people’s $$.
I hope I didn’t scare you with this topic.
