I guess I can say that through those months where i cut myself, I felt like crap. Like no one gave a damn and my life was going no where.
As stupid as this sounds part of this was true. Sure my parents/family/friends cared but they never cared ENOUGH i guess.
I used to slash my arm and then roll up my sleeves during piano lessons so that my cousin could see but she never noticed no matter how burning red it was.
I went to school and showed my friend all the cuts on my arm and she said woah and started cutting herself.
Even now as I'm typing this i know the few people that will even skim through this wont give a damn.
So for those of you who have stuck around to read the whole thing, you might be wondering how i got better?
Seriously...I wont lie, I got better by myself. I realized that no matter how hard I tried, no one was going to care if i cut myself or not, so what was the point? I started paying more attention in church.
I think i'm the only suicidal person who can truly say they got better because of their own will power..thank the lord that he made me as strong as I am.
Because of what I went through, I'm always there for anyone that needs me, even if i'm alone..becaase i dont want anyone to ever feel the way that i did.

i have a friend who you remind me of..he went through a similar road you went through..but with alot of support with friends..family etc..he was able to get back on his feet..
This person has since changed..but although he doesnt seem the same to me..i will always treat him the same.
I think suicide is wrong...from all my knowledge from friends and religion .. there are soo many other ways to help a person with their problems..
Think about it this way..suicide is also selfish because think about the people who care about you who will be greatly devastated.
Althought some people have it really hard and seems as there is no way out..they should have high spirits ..GOD is with them

another suicide is that the person wishes to cause harm to a loved one or a group of people that knew them (i call that being a coward :angry:not bieng able to fix the problem so they just give up and kill them selfs .
any way what ever the cause is YES it can be stopped and prevented and yes i think that at least 4out of 8 people dont care what will happen to them or they think that they dont mean it .....until ......its to late to stop them and they have to live with it for the rest of their lives (that cant be enjoyable )(T-T)
and that is my thought on suicied (sad but true )

I've been down the road to wanting to do it and it's just not the answer.
I think if you're so down in depression, I think you should talk to someone you can trust about your problems. It's sooo much better than wanting to just kill yourself and get it over with.
I talked to someone about how I was feeling and I don't regret it at all. Everyone has soo much to live for and you shouldn't just throw your life away.
Lacus, your story made me cry. It reminded me sooo much of how I used to be.
I remember when ever my parents would argue, or if I had an argument with a friend, I would always cut to "try" to relieve the pain.
But it doesn't. It only makes things worse.

suicide is NOT the answer.although i cannot say from personal experience,i still don't agree.what would people think if i killed myself?i don't need to ask that question.i know how they would feel,and it would not be preatty.not only would they suffer,but my soul would suffer also.i would'nt be happy,because they would'nt be happy.also,i'm quite into the whole god thing,i pray everyday for his help.i cry out to him when i need him.i beg.i say ''please god''.
and boy,does he respond.you'd be surprised how many times i have opened my bible when i felt depressed,and found things that relate to what's happening with me.it's preatty cool.but,he does'nt only help me.my mom does to.i'm thankfull for the mom that i have because shes understanding.and she'll love me no matter what i do.

but suicide is two faced. it's selfish and that's what we're supposed to think about it. but sometimes it's salvation. sometimes life doesn't even seem like a life anymore. it gets so awful that there is no point to it anymore. and it seems the only way out is through death. dying to live. i understand how there's times when you feel completely different from the world. times when you cry, you abuse, you question why it's only you that's feeling this. why doesn't this happen to anyone else. and if life is really worth living. a point where you get so "depressed" that nothing matters to you anymore. like a dark void, that you've made for yourself and you can't get out.
but everyone goes through that. it's called life. i can't really say how i feel about it. but all i can say is. if you want to it's your own choice. but think about it for 5 minutes before you do. if you die, there's no coming back. no hellos and goodbyes. no one to be with you. you'll never know what would happen to you in the future. you'll lose yourself. you would have lost before it ever began.so, do you really want to die?

I used to get the questions why? I started hurting myself in 8th grade now I'm in 12th.
I've going through abuse physical and sexual, relationship problems, and school was the biggest. I turned to hurting myself because everything kept piling up and everytime I did it felt like I was releasing the pain. I didn't have anybody to talk to about what I've gonna even my closest friends still don't know and I just kept it inside until the pressure became too much. It not so much that a person doesn't know how to control their problems it more like they don't want to deal with them.I've been in therapy but I never can trust someone who is only listening to my problems because they're getting paid.
Nowadays I feel that I can trust at least two of my closest friends and I haven't hurt myself since 11th grd. But I still get the pressures and I'm still dealing with my past but I've opened up to my friends and that's helped me deal more.
I've said more then should of I guess...opps...

People only do it, because they either:
-Know they lost
-Give up too easily
-Think it's their fault
-Have a huge ego

One main reason why I think people shouldn't commit suicide (whether you are religious or not) is: you have amazing and caring friends who love you and will help you out (even if you don't think you do) and that in itself is a reason for living.
Another reason how are you gonna accomplish your dreams, hopes, goals, etc? You won't be able to if you give up on life. Work through it. Persevere that's how you get stronger.

I agree with "suicide is a selfish act" and it may seem (from our point of view) as VERY selfish, but it's more of the fact that they can't control they're emotions. They don't know how to deal with their problems, true, yes, but it's like saying, "depression is a selfish thing". They ruin everyone around them with their constant negative attitude, and yet people don't seem to hate them as much.
suicide is what selfish ppl do. because the people who commit it obviously dont know how to deal with problems. but if they had family or friends (which most probably they do) theyre making everyone feel sad. my uncle commited suicide about a year ago, his son, my cousin, felt so sad, he died of grief. this is no joke, its all true. his son was 12 years old and loved his father. but his father ruined his son, and the rest of his family. selfish guy... doesnt care about nething but himself
My friend (he was only a;lskdfj;alskjdf 13 years old) just commited suicide monday morning at 6:17 happy halloween? psh, yeah right. He has been bullied for... a long time. People were peeing in his locker, all over his P.E. clothes. They were stealing his money right underneath his nose. He tried to reach out; his grades started dropping. He's an ALL A student. And he made a freakin D on his report card. Highly unusual. His parents got REALLY mad, blah blah blah, grounded him, blah blah blah. Everything was just going on a downhill slope. And he couldn't handle it anymore.
Yeah, why couldn't he talk to someone? It's been going through every single one of our minds.
Some people just aren't as strong as others.
Anyway, back to the point, it was their decision to do it. I'm not saying it's a good thing. I agree that it's selfish. But you can't get mad at them for being mad. Or sad. Or frustrated. It's just some people get tired of dealing with everything. In the end, you have to just be happy with the memories you have of those people.
Anyway, after this little ordeal, all thoughts of suicide are strictly on "why did he do it" Never, ever, ever going to commit suicide. I hope I don't have to go to one of my friend's funerals again.
