Personally, I will probably die by suicide as a result of philosophical beliefs. I agree with certain branches of philosophy that say, I need to determine if I think the game of life is worth playing. If no I better commit suicide, that is the logical thing to do. If on the other hand I am not sure I better find out, because if I am going on and on, I am not sure if it's worth it, I will make a mess out of it. Which is probably why I am, where I am in my life, I have not decided if I want to play the game or not for forever. I now fully understand the history of suicide, how it became the most stigmatized issue in society due to religious reasons,that stem from economic reasons. It was seen as a mental illness relatively recently on the basis of a religious world view(suicide could never make sense if you go to hell for committing suicide for instance). I have been trying to figure out what I would do without a bias to live or die. I have a slight bias to die(However I know that is much less of a bias that the bias to live etc) I know it's close to the line but it's hard to determine where exactly it it. Some people will try to get around this by saying pain to family etc can shift where it is but I reject that. For starters suicide hurts family mainly due to extreme stigmatism. I am not responsible that I happen to live in a time where suicide is extremely stigmatized. I have to make this decision on the sole basis of what is best for me personally, you can conveniently apply morality and call that selfish, I call it rational.
