Contemplating Suicide - December 4th 2012, 11:32 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of suicide, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread therefore might not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I've posted a few times in here "Family and Friends," and "Relationships," and they're both connected to these feelings.

I think if I had a gun I would've killed myself a long time ago. I just don't fit in anywhere. The only way I can function is im high, drunk, etc to keep away from these feelings.

I'm too scared to do it any other way than a gun. But at this point...I live next to a bridge I'm contemplating just jumping.

I just don't have anywhere to go. No one cares and its a burden to hold myself together. Nothing I do makes a difference..

I think I am going to write a few letters before I go. I can't decide between anger, depression, or forgiveness for the tone of them. Maybe I'll ask a few friends about buying a gun.

I am the stone that the builder refused.

Hello. <3

Please don't buy a gun, or end your life. Please... You are special. You're 19, you have so much more to live for. You'll have that special someone in the future to live for. You can do this.
I promise you there is someone in your life that cares about you. Even if you don't think so. I care.
Can you talk to a therapist about things bothering you?

Some new hobbies could help too. Biking/Art/Gaming/Music. Also try to walk in the sunlight or do sports and whatnot in the sunlight. Sun induces natural chemicals for positive emotions.
Animals and nature are a wonderful thing to add in your life. So positive, beautiful and can be cute. It's a great way to remind yourself that life was meant to be simple. Lose yourself in that.

Recovery is possible. I know someone that attempted suicide many years ago... Has now recovered.
You're worth recovery. You can do this and if you want, I'll be here through the journey. You can PM/VM me anytime you like.

Stay strong. You can do this. <3

I tried to commit suicide. It wasn't pretty, it wasn't what Hollywood has you believing. It's much worse. and Its FOREVER.
My advice is to wake up everyday, look at yourself, think of two ways you will make a difference in the world and go about doing them. It can be as small as saying hello to two strangers on the street to giving a couple dollars to a homeless person. Overtime you will start smiling, knowing that you are making the world a better place.
No one on this earth is a burden, never believe that. Whats your passion in life? Everyone has one. Mine...Writing. I love writing stories, poems, plays, articles, essays. Take your passion and do something great with it. You will feel so much better about yourself.

Hey there,

Suicide is NOT worth it. I attempted nearly 2 months ago -chokes- and hated myself for it. When I woke and saw a paramedic staring down at me, I wished to die because I was just so much more of a failure.
BUT, suicide isn't the way. Nor is running away from your feelings. Tried and failed, granted I am a girl, I enjoyed burying my feeings, hate crying, I'm not like any other girl really, I'm not the tantrum throwing, attention seeking bitch like those in my area. I loathe my feelings because they get me in trouble and get me hurt.

Trust me, neither is a good way to cope with it.
And, would you really want to miss out on taking a wife, and holding your first child in your arms, of have their tiny hand grab onto your finger, or the first day they go into school. There are so many things in store for you, do you really want to miss out?

Suicide just isn't worth the pain and suffering thrust onto everyone else around you! I hurt many and I'm still alive, which sucks and makes me suicidal to think about, but still, don't contemplate, draw the line and then run away from it.

Don't buy a gun either. Lose all temptation.

Also, how do you know jumping off a bridge would kill you? My friends and I jumped off a bridge and it is about a hundred metres off the water. Tall bridge, we didn't die and I landed wrong.
Don't try. It isn't worth it.

My blog is open to all, those whom are easily triggered avoid, it's a story about a girl and her life and how far she has come over the years. If you read it, I hope it inspires you to keep fighting and to NEVER give up!

When you can no longer think of a reason to continue, you must think of a reason to start over.
