I don't think that you would have to re-learn all of the life lessons that you have already learned just because you kill yourself. I think that you would probabely pick up where you left off in the next life. You would already have a portion of your lessons completed, depending on where you were in your life and what lessons you had already learned, and you would just continue on with those lessons in the next life. I think that is what we do whether we kill ourselves or not. We decide what lessons we want to learn, and at our life review we see what we have accomplished and what we still need work on. I believe that we "carry over" the lessons that we need to work on from one life to the next until we decide that lesson is complete.
We all have lessons that we want to learn, and some may be better at accomplishing them than others. The more we accomplish, the more we grow, and it seems like the next life is "easier," because we remember where we came from quicker. Once we remember where we came from and use our abilities, life seems easier because we know that we are not alone and always have help when we need it. We also remember our true selves, and realize that our bodies are just a shell, not who or what we really are.
The problem with killing yourself is that you may have needed to learn a lesson from being paralyzed, or help someone else learn an important lesson. If you end your life prematurely, then not only are you cheating yourself out of growing spiritually, but you could also be cheating someone else who may really need your help.
Erin has also posted that if life is too much for us, all we have to do is ask for help. When we ask for help, I believe that if we are suffering so much that we do not think we can handle it, we can ask to die. By asking to die instead of killing ourselves, the "universe" has time to fill in the parts that we were supposed to complete, but we are still there to help until they can find a replacement. My understanding is that if you really want to die, after the universe finds a replacement for our "teaching," then it will do the rest (ie. kill us). It is kinda like what happens when we have completed everything that we were sent to do on earth. Our jobs are done, and we go back home (die).
