Reading around and came upon a statement of someone asking how to convince a “suicidal” person to live. Thing for me is that we don’t need reassurances to live, we need reasons not to die. A small but important distinction. I know why I’d want to live; very easy to know why I want to live. What I need is to know why I shouldn’t die. Hard to even talk with people about this because it seems the realities of life and death don’t figure into most people’s lifeworlds.I KNOW what it is that is worth living for, what I don’t know is why dying isn’t worth dying for.
