Let's face it, when everything is stripping away life is worth living. Those that disagree, and lets face it also that most of us have been or will be there at least once, no those that disagree have to be under the impression that the is something else after the last breath has been taken. So you either give in to hope or have to come to the conclusion that living is better then the alternative no matter what your circumstance.
Feeling pain is better then not feeling at all. It may not sound attractive and the notion of “ending it all” might feel an option but in truth it can't be. People only want to “end it all” because they don't understand what that means. You can't choose nothing unless you understand what nothing is. Nothing is not nill or zero or nought. Nothing is unique it's not a book full of blank pages or even an empty bucket. It's not dust or a blank expression.
People can't understand the state of not existing, this is nothing. In it's best form it may be waking up to a bright sunny day by the sea. In it's worst form it maybe waking to rain in the smog every day. Either one of these states is in fact existing even if the you only know that by the pain you are in.
Not existing doesn't take away the pain, it takes away the you.
