Thank you for this. I just finished, not ten minutes ago, telling my friend how much I love her for being the one handing that stick to me a couple years ago.

All the same, I would sooner die than inconvenience somebody with my problems.

Some people would rather be inconvenienced with someones problems than see them suffer and die.

Thank you for posting this. I'm 20 years old and I've been depressed for a few years now. This past year my depression has become much worse. I've withdrawn from all my friends but one. My good grades were the last hope I had, and now I don't even have that. I failed all my classes last semester and this semester has been the same way so far. Most days I don't get out of bed. I haven't talked to my family about how I feel at all.

These past few months, thoughts of suicide have been more frequent. Serious ones, where I've been thinking about what I will write to my friends and family. Where I want to commit suicide - my dorm room or my house?

I had given up on the thought of telling my family. I feel so weak and I don't want them to be disappointed. I know I need help, but I'm scared.

Reading this, it made me realize that I want that reason to live - I want that stick. I'm going to talk to my mom this week. Just the thought of telling her terrifies me, but I need to do it.

When you realize you don't want a plan, you just want to do it then and there, that's when you know you need help. You want something to hold onto, that means you don't want to die. For me, my stick was someone convincing me to go full time (I'm transgender). talk to the people who care about you, they can always offer you that stick

I hope you find your stick. I don't know you but I know I don't want you to die.

It seems you and I are quite similar. Withdrawing from friends, fear of disappointing those we love, slipping up on what we feel we were good at. The depression is to blame here, and it can be helped. A support system is so important for treatment, and I commend you for planning your first step. It's just a matter of taking it!

Please don't let the idea of SSRI medications or talking to a doctor about your situation scare you away from getting medical treatment, as well. It might take some time to find the right medication and dose for you, but that's just all the more reason to start treatment as soon as you are able!

Why does it matter that you're out of ammo if your gun has already been taken away?

When are we born? When do we die? Why are we born? Why do we die? The world has been destroyed and we've fallen countless times, always resurrecting from the ashes as Paradise. It has happened before, and it will happen again. An endless cycle of life and death. The world is a Paradise that was opened by someone, but this era too is almost at an end. We have acquired the means to exceed our natural span of life, never suspecting that the world itself was finalized in its existence. This knowledge has left me in despair, my fate has fallen and ********* like the petals of a dying flower, like the blast from a sand storm it has been warn down and weathered away. As if to be purified, the world will be encased in ice so that it can return to the beginning once more. Paradise is a world that is opened by someone...

Comparing weak suicidal ****** to marines. No.
#18 to #7 - zacsuntibidea (10/12/2013) [-]
You're absolutely right. Comparing civilians without the slightest bit of formal training fighting against the one thing on earth that attacks the essence of who you are to well trained, well equipped men made war machines against mere death is just insulting.

Maybe someday you'll be able to see what you say the way those who've done both do. Until then, Good luck against the folk in your life who wield the more lethal weapons.

You obviously never had to strive for something and lose it completely. Or lose someone you loved deeply and truly.

Some of the strongest people I know have been brought to their knees and have nearly turned to suicide.

Once that happens to you, come back to this and see just how much of a ******* idiot you are.

when your life goes to **** and you realize what the **** you just said, well be there to scrape you off the ground with decency, you may not be a decent person, but some of us are

Have you even considered the fact that suicide is a major issue for active duty military and veterans? Often that "weak suicidal ****** " is a Marine, and would beat your ass in, depression or no depression, for being a disrespectful neckbeard who can't even remember to capitalize "Marine." It may be a bit to much to say seeking help is like being behind enemy lines in combat, but to many in the military the later is far more difficult.

I'll have you know I am a neckbeard and I completely agree with you.

That's some serious owning right there.

Empty sentiments from a cartoon owl.
No real person would ever love you in the real world.

this owl has been more motivational to me than anyone else I've talked to has.

Some people really don't seem to realize how hard it can be to ask for help when you are feeling suicidal. It's not just that you're afraid of being judged as week or crazy, though that's a major part of it (especially in the military; the post mentioned the Marines, and suicide is a major issue in our armed services and among veterans). There is also the fact that you honestly find it hard to believe that things can get better, and that the only logical solution is to take that belladona or open up a vein. So yeah, people should try to learn what someone else is going through before judging them. Pic is because Gen Mattis is a badass.

It took my hand reaching for a knife to shock mew into asking. It's hard
