I'll tell you what I think about euthanasia! 🤔 | Week 144 Weekend-Engagement [ENG]
Bienvenidos! || Welcome!
Hello friends from all over the world! I hope you are having a great weekend like me, through this publication I join the 144 weekend commitment proposed by the hiver @galenkp which left us very interesting topics, of all of them one of two that caught my attention was the fact of being able to talk about what I think of euthanasia, since this action or decision is only legal in a few countries, I believe that anyone should have the right to choose about their life, even more when they are suffering a lot, I will tell you a little about the story of my maternal grandmother who passed away when I was 15 years old but she is still alive in my mind and heart, she suffered from arthritis from the age of 30 until 65 years old, so I met her with this disease and I saw her fight against it always.
My grandmother and I
My mom, who took care of my grandmother all her life
Although she had this disease, she was the most admirable woman I have ever known, she cooked, took care of me as a baby, worked and dedicated herself to her passions which were painting and knitting, she was always smiling in spite of the intense pain, I saw with my own eyes how she was declining to the point of not being able to walk again or get out of bed, I remember that on her last day of life she could not even speak, even so I hugged her, kissed her a lot and reminded her every moment how much I loved her, I am glad she left knowing how much I love her.
This experience marked my life a lot changing my way of thinking about incurable diseases and death, I discovered that I would not want that for me, I think the best thing will always be to avoid more suffering or more pain, as a result of this experience I agree with euthanasia, because I believe that it is not human to stay alive when clearly there is no turning back and there is only suffering for the rest of the way, I mean, if I have an incurable disease and I feel fine for now, excellent, but if the time comes when day after day I feel pain, I can not have an ordinary life and I feel more and more destroyed, without any doubt euthanasia would be the perfect option, what do you think about it? .

THANKS FOR READING!
I honestly completely agree. When people have no chance of being cured and all they have ahead of them is a life of pain and suffering, it seems like the only reasonable choice.
Exactly, if I were in this position I would like to be able to take this option.
Life is tough and even toucher to bear when you have to bear with an incurable disease but like your grandmother we can all find beauty through our pain. Thanks for sharing
I saw her show her best face in the face of suffering and continue doing what she likes, I admire that about her, but for me I would like something different like being able to opt for euthanasia, thank you for your comment 🤗.
We can find peace in all circumstances
If like becomes a burden, there's no other way to give people the chance of piece. I have seen a lot of suffering being romanticizes and it is quite a weird thing.
Exactly, I don't know why they romanticize enduring suffering but I don't agree and for me I would like a quiet life or nothing 🤷🏻♀️
Well, it's a thing of faith. The tenants of lots of religions make the endurance of suffering an act of cleansing the soul. That's one thing implied in the whole idea.
You need to edit your title and remove the ENG/ESP reference. This community doesn't not support dual language posting and your title could be misleading to others.
Hey, since I posted it I realized the error but I have had serious Internet problems, I think I was able to do it after several failed attempts! Sorry for the inconvenience, it's the habit that played against me, happy day 🤗.
No worries, it looks good now, thanks for changing it as I don't like people looking at titles like this and thinking dual language is accepted here.
Que tema tan difícil amiga, yo también estoy de acuerdo contigo, aunque tomar esa decisión es más complicado, hay que tener mucho valor!
Si se tiene que tener valor y no debe de ser facil, pero creo que lo dificil es el desprenderse de los seres queridos, de todas formas es un tema dificil de mencionar y dialogar 😕

Friend, what a pity that your grandmother had to go through so much pain and suffering and how bad that you had to live that experience, I agree with you that euthanasia is an option to end the suffering of people, what you say is true If there is no going back or a way to improve the life of a person, they do not deserve to live the time they have left suffering so much, it is a very delicate subject without a doubt but it leaves a lot to think about about life.
Thank you for your support and understanding friend, exactly, I think that if there is no turning back is the best option and I understand that the most complicated thing here is to let go of loved ones, but well, it is a complicated issue and a decision for the brave!
