    how does this image indicate that suicide is a way to happiness?

      It doesn’t – but that’s only my opinion.

      Why do some people cling to life in the presence of absolute hopelessness while others end their life for apparent trivial reasons?

      We live in a world of relative realities, a wilting rose can be interpreted in different ways, depending upon the viewers perspective. is it decay, or just another stage in the cycle of becoming?

      But is the image of a rose?

      Why Perez did you ask the question? (Questions and answers) – some people are interested in knowing the answers, while others don’t even recognise the existence of questions.

      Thanks for leaving your comment.

    Oh, indeed, I recognize the existence of questions. I ask more questions than I get answers….. that is the spice of life. Yes, I understand what you are saying, YB. I had a very dear friend commit suicide a few years ago. I knew his stance advocating suicide as a choice and his belief as a another stage in the cycle of becoming; however, it was still a deep shock for me that he had committed suicide. I saw the beauty of life, no matter what, and he did not. Yes, we do live in a world of relative realities.
