I can imagine there's some variety in age and what sort of relationships you still have with people in this world. If you commit suicide in younger age and others will be sad about it you could reap a lot of bad karma I reckon. Not to mention all the missed things of life. If however you are old, and there's nobody left to love you.. well I don't think it will be much of a problem..

This is a sensitive topic but I'll bite. I can be controversial. Euthanasia has been a big topic in my country in recent years. It's legal but it was still a taboo subject, but now people are becoming more open about it. I think we have to ask ourselves what it means to be a human, and what we want out of that. If my body in old age were to stop functioning properly and when there are no loved ones around I don't think I would want to stick around. If you got no kids and no partner it will also mean you really are alone by that time. I think it could be an option to make the last journey into the mountains and die in a good place..

I like this explanation. I don't think so much about duty, but more about finishing the experiences that they incarnated to have in the first place, though I suppose duty could be one of them. It is sort of like dropping out of life school, you signed up for the classes, but got freaked by the difficulty and quite. So you slap yourself on the forehead and say why did I do that, now I have to start that particular class all over again. Obviously I am simplifying here, but that is the gist of how I look at it. I think if a soul finds it has accomplished what it set out to experience in a given life time and decides to leave, it is more likely to arrange a more natural exit.

Yes, exactly... all of that. Simple but spot-on. Sometimes simple is best.
