SEEKING DEATH (DARK)
FORMS THIS MIGHT TAKE:
HUMAN NEED DRIVING THE GOAL (INNER MOTIVATION):
Esteem and Recognition: If a character's low self-esteem leads to loathing or hatred for him or herself, death could become a way to end the pain or make a statement about their perceived lack of value or worth.
Love and Belonging: A character suffering enough isolation, abandonment, or rejection may be driven by their lack of love and belonging to end the pain.
Safety and Security: A character whose existence is chronically unsafe (with their physical or emotional wellness continuously being threatened) may seek death as an escape.
Physiological Needs: A character who believes their days are already limited (such as a terminally ill patient) may choose to speed up the process by pursuing this motivation.
