how do you - April 9th 2013, 12:55 AM

how do you tell somebody that you really don't want to be around anymore?
i'm finding this really complicated. :/

all i want is a place to call my own and
mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone,
you know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low.

You could do it through a note or text. Or sit them down and talk and explain.

Re: how do you - April 9th 2013, 01:33 AM

I guess it depends on who you are telling. Or for me, I think that's the case. Writing it down is for me, a god send. I would be no where in my life with out pen and paper. I've been seeing my GP for three, nearly four years, pretty much weekly. So I am guessing I have written around 156 to 208 letters to him, all of which he keeps in a draw. He says we're either going to shred them or we're going to write a novel. None have been brilliant. They've all been negative, some more positive than others. But that's how I tell him, I don't want to be here anymore and more recently, like today, that's how I told him. That's how I've told people all week.

Who do you want to tell? Everyone finds talking to different people helpful. I find it really hard to talk to my mum which is ironic because she's my whole life and she's been through depression and hospitalisations, like me, so I would think she would understand. But I think we can feel pressure to talk to the people closest to us because we don't want to harm them. So maybe it's not all about how we tell people, but maybe it's also about who we tell.

So -

1) Think about who you want to talk too. Ideas?
- A friend
- Boyfriend/Girlfriend
- Your doctor
- A mental health professional (if you see one)
- A school nurse
- A school counselor
- Us here at Teenhelp
- A helpline
- A teacher
- Family (parents, auntie's, uncle's, grandparents etc)
- Family friends,
- Friends parents

There are so many people who love and care about you. And they do, honestly want to be there but for them to be there for you and for them to help you, you have to let them in.

2) How to tell them. Idea's?
- Sit down with them and say it out front (it's scary but sometimes it's the best way forward)
- Text them
- Ring them
- Write them a letter
- Email them
- Print this off and show them it
- If you want to tell someone like you doctor, you can talk to someone you trust more first, like a friend/parent and you can ask them to go with you for support to help you tell your doctor (or who ever you wish to tell)

Ultimately, don't let the fear of telling someone stop you from getting help. You have a future and you deserve love and support to help you through this so don't suffer in silence. I know it's scary but sometimes all it takes in twenty seconds of courage. Just twenty seconds. And then it's out there and you can talk and be open and get the help you need and deserve.

I hope you you talk to the people who can help you, don't be afraid. You can do this.
