Exchange of lives...

hello dear fellows... Here is a huge question. You might laugh at me. You might think I'm off my head... Some of us might recommend Asylum for me... There comes a point when life becomes worthless and useless to us. What's the point, we ask ourselves, in dragging on such unworthy life? Feels like giving up, committing suicide... But why waste so many years of life? I'm sure I can live 20 years at least and if I commit suicide, it'll be a waste... I watched 'In Time' recently, where a guy donates 100 years of his life to a good guy with message 'don't waste my time'... I wish to do the same noble act.. I want to give my life to someone who needs it. Someone who's a few weeks to live and whose death will bring sorrow to many souls. I want to give my life to such a human or animal, who's loved by many and will be missed by many more... Can I do that? Did you ever think of such thing? You wouldn't think this way, until you feel that you're just dragging on, of course. But would you do that? Will it be possible? Hasn't any scientist thought of this yet???? What can I do??

Hello mr_pearl, My response to your discussion is somewhat inclined to religion and beliefs. I believe mr pearl that our life is not ours. God gave it to us and He will be getting it back when the right time comes. So, in my opinion, it is not right to give away something that does not really belong to us. God gave us our soul, body and naturally our life so we can live here on earth according to His will. No matter how good our intentions are, like giving life to somebody who seems more worthy of us, I still don't believe this is acceptable. As for giving organs after you die, I don't know my stand for that yet. Maybe that is acceptable because you are not really offering your organs to other people so you could die. Honestly, when I was so sad at one point in my life, I also thought that dying is better than living such unworthy life. But life is so full of ups and downs, I believe that the downs pass along with time. We just need to struggle searching for the ups. To summarize it mr pearl, I believe that only God can decide if we will live and when we will die :)

Hi Miss... I appreciate your respect for God.. Religion, they say, provide peace of mind and strength. I never trusted in religions. I believe in God, God knows it. But I never went to a temple. I prayed to God, complained about life and many times when I was awful alone, I talked to God. Religion has been misused by indecent people for their self, so I never went that way. If it belongs to God, then probably forgot to take it back; which is why I've such miserable life... I feel so depressed again :-(... Thanks a lot...

You can do this, in a way. Here in the States you can be a organ donor. You can be added to a list and when you die, you eyes your kidneys or heart or lungs , liver , can go to a person waiting for a transplant. so in a way you are giving them more time.

I have not heard anything about exchanging of life but you could live it better if you dedicate it for sake of others. Why would you feel the way you feel. We all have bad days and good days but the truth is, this don't last for ever. We need to adjust with the hardship that we face. Otherwise, none of us could be living now.

U are already giving your life away. U can give it to anything, other than another person. Right now, u have give it to depression because it has taken over your body and mind. Now u have experience the life of being depressed, isn't it time to take it out, and let life experience another form of it? Think positively and u will be in for lots of surprises. Nothing stays forever, but it doesn't mean everything has to change. Remember that.

Hi Miss... Thanks for sharing... Your post makes see it from a different point of view. I'm really not sure if I'm standing on my head or foot at this point.. Everything's so confusing. I do all I can to overcome my grief. It pays a little in the form of a few hours sleep. After waking up, I find that I'm still living in the ruined castle of the burning city... I've a lot to work on.. I need to re build my castle and my city... Thanks for showing a new light my friend.. Have a good time...

HI... Thanks a lot Manoj... Meditation is a good exercise and I have recommended it to many.. But couldn't practise it, for the lack of concentration... As you know, it needs a lot of concentration... I'll try to, however... Thanks a lot!!!

I still love my life even if I am not completely satisfied with my achievements. I don't have a perfect life but I think I am not willing to give up just like that and give it someone else. Unless I am going to be a mom and the only way for the baby to survive is give up my life, I would be willing to choose the baby to live. That movie is something that's really impossible for a scientist to do. And if that happens in reality, most of the people on the other side of town will not choose to live longer. I won't be like them who would work hard for their life coz no matter how you prolong your life, someone can still take it away.

Hi Miss... Thanks a lot!!! Oh yes, a Mom will do anything for her Baby... Sacrifying life is nothing, she will take life if that means life for her baby :)... I am glad that you're still positive about life. I know, very few think the way I do! The movie was good... At least, it showed some nice scientific impossibilities... :) Thank you again Miss... May you have a blessed and happy life... :) Take care..
