Well, looking at it objectively, life is a kind of ongoing horror, where we're trapped in flimsy, easily broken bodies motivated by pain and fear.
There are a few brief moments of enjoyment, but mostly they have to do with a temporary cessation of the pain. Eventually, we'll all either slowly
or quickly decay, or be killed in a random accident. All of our efforts in life will ultimately mean nothing as we die and fade from the memories of
our friends and family. Even the great Alexander, conqueror of the world, died and turned to dust.
I mean, when you think about it, life sucks horribly, and there's no way to honestly say that it will get better enough to make it worth sticking
around for any length of time. It's all over soon, anyway.
The most annoying thing about teen suicides (or any suicides, for that matter) is that it makes us think about these things, ourselves, and wakes us
up to the horror that we usually are successful in forgetting most of the time.
