"Why is it not ok for someone to CHOOSE to take THEIR OWN Life?”
"Why is it not ok for someone to CHOOSE to take THEIR OWN Life?”

I got this from a woman who I will call Karen.
I thought her question was worth discussing.

Here’s what she wrote:

I have struggled with suicide probably since I was 14.
I am now 40 years old!!!
I am tired.
Very very tired.

My thinking is- HOW can another person tell me what I can and can not do with MY LIFE?

I have no children.
I am single.
My Mother has passed.
I have no responsibility to anyone.
I believe, I truly believe, it is MY CHOICE.

I am very curious to read the responses.
I should say bringing any religion into it does nothing...because a person suffering for so long KNOWS God will understand.


Karen says she’s not suicidal now.
But she also says that the picture she sent me reflects how it is.

Yesterday I posted about a woman who had to put down her dog.
She was devastated.
One of the people who commented wrote:

"I still don’t understand how pretty much all humans agree we should not prolong a beloved pet’s suffering, yet still don’t think the same should apply to us as people.
I wish everyone had the right to die with dignity and surrounded by their loved ones."

It’s hard to argue with that.
