So it is wrong to kill yourself, leaving others to live in pain for your own convenience, but it is perfectly okay to denounce suicide, and expect another to live in pain for your own convenience?
It is impossible to be selfish in this situation, because your life is yours and yours alone.
How hard is it to understand you are responsible for yourself. If you would feel sad if someone close to you dies, that is your problem, and is not their fault. It is like saying a girl has to marry you because you love her, and you would be sad if she rejected you. Too bad if you would be sad, she has every right to marry who she pleases. Same goes with living and dying, no one is required to live solely for your amusement, that is called slavery and we have moved past such despicable acts.
This post is ridiculous.
There are people in your life you have a responsibility towards, whether you like it or not. Parents, children, family...even the law recognizes that. And, to a lesser extent, society has expectations as to how a person should treat those they have chosen to make friends with.
It's not the same as choosing a mate. Obviously both parties have a choice - because once that choice and commitment is made it is a legally binding obligation. You may be able to choose whether you marry a girl, but once you marry her you can't simply cast her off and not pay some sort of support.
