My Last Article, For You

July 11, 2016

(Huffington Post) – By the time you read these lines, I will have died. I have decided to end my life, to exercise my inalienable right to make decisions about my own life freely and responsibly. You will likely ask yourself why? What’s the reason for such an unprecedented decision? In fact, I’m not terminally ill, I don’t have a grave and incurable disease. I’m not depressed either. Simply, my moment to die has arrived. It’s the right moment to die. Not too soon. Not too late. It’s the right moment to embrace my death freely, that death — like Nietzsche says — that comes to me because I want it to.
