Default The topic of suicide.

Okay guys, I know this is a touchy subject, but it's one I've been thinking about a lot lately, since I am at a very low and dark point in my life.

I've never been one to think about suicide a lot, and I'm not thinking about DOING it, so don't go calling a hotline on me, I'm just thinking about the action of it and the mechanics and whatnot and how society looks at it.

Why is suicide so widely frowned upon? I mean... I understand, but then again I don't. Why is it so bad for a person to choose to opt out of life? It's their life, isn't it? If they understand fully what that means..... Why isn't suicide seen as viable option? We always say "oh, it will get better..".. But in a lot of cases...that's not true. Some people die alone and unhappy and they live their whole lives like that. Why not allow them to choose to leave this world on their own terms, rather than miserable and unbalanced? They can choose to leave. Maybe this falls under the category of physician assisted suicide...

I also realize this won't be a very popular idea. Please don't eat me alive. It was just my current thoughts on it all.
