Suicide

There is no real convincing answer to the problem of suicide. "Why should I continue to live?" Almost every answer to this is a Coelho-style stupid cliche.

Perhaps the best way to tackle the suicidal is not to try and answer his question (there is no satisfactory answer to my mind), but to distract him so that he ceases to ask the question.

The thing which bothers me is, if i were to become suicidal, i can't imagine a single argument which could persuade me from not killing myself. Scary.

Don't underestimate life's desire to persist. If you were to become suicidal, you'd have a heckuva battle to fight. True story.
