Not worth the trouble

Walter Benjamin ends his essay ‘The destructive character' with this sentence: “The destructive character does not live out of the feeling that life is worth living, but that suicide is not worth the trouble.” I don’t think I’m destructive, at least not more than others, but I agree wholeheartedly with the idea that suicide is not worth the trouble. (And I have doubts if life is worth living.)
