Nice post, Asten.
I think the desire for death can be viewed in a positive light, too:
You're desiring the death of the person you are now, and the birth of a new person. A person who's more in line with what you really want, who's able to have those things, and who doesn't have the same cage you have right now. It's like you're saying: I don't want to live (like this) anymore. It's really a great place to be.
