Hi Brittany

Im sorry you feel the way you do....have you any reason to be depressed? People get depressed for many reasons. Even if there isnt a reason you can still get depressed.

The fact that you want to hurt yourself is a sign that you need help.

Is there anyone you can talk to...a relative....a counsellor?

Its not fair that you need to suffer alone.

It takes a strong person to get better & I believe you are a strong special someone whos time is not now.

If things are that bad, they cant get worse, so the only option is for things to get better.

To help with your suicidal ideation try & write down the negatives you are thinking, then write the positive. Example;

I want to die;
A)Negative - No one will miss me
B)Positive - People will miss me


If that doesnt work, do something to relax yourself.

You dont have to hurt yourself because you feel depressed, your depression alone is worth getting help for

If you want to chat my inbox is always open.

Please...keep safe....I know you can make it through the bad times.

Hey,

It seems like things are a little hard for you right now? Do you know why you are feeling depressed. Are there sititutions going on in your life that are causing these feelings? Have you ever talked to anybody about your depression and feelings of wanting to commit suicide/hurt yourself? If not, maybe try that, could you set up a meeting with a counselor or something? How about friends and family members, anybody that you could tell how your feeling. If you feel like commiting suicide or hurting yourself, you need to talk to somebody so that you can share your pain. Communcation is a good tactic in overcoming deperssion!

I'm really sorry you are feeling like this and I know how much it hurts and how much you just wish it would stop. But you can't give up! Sucide won't solve anything and pain can't cure pain. So you just have to wait it out! If you want to be happy though, you have to work at it. I.E. talking to people, replacing negative thoughts with postivie thoughts, get out and do something that you enjoy, etc. Everything will turn around! I hope everything works out! PM me if you need to talk.


when life is in discord; praise ye the Lord

keep your faith alive.
we're not alone <3

Hey,

Sorry you are feeling so down right now. Please do not give up though because things can get better.

You said you tried talking to a counselor? How did that go? How many times did you talk to him/her? Sometimes you need to talk to a counselor a couple of times before you really start feeling comfortable with them and are really able to communicate everything. Give it time because with time all wounds heal.

As for wanting to hurt yourself try not too. I know that it is hard but it really won't accomplish anything it might make you feel even worse in the end.

Why do you think your friends are pushing you away? Maybe they really aren't pushing you away, maybe they are just scared that they won't be able to help you so they are distancing themselves from you. Another thing is that depression makes us think thoughts that aren't true at all; so maybe you think that your friends are pushing you away but in reality they really aren't

You said you know some of the reasons why you are depressed, right? Well, maybe you could write the reason's down and than decide how life shattering they are. I don't know if that makes sense. What I mean is write down all your problems and then categorize them by...things that are really bad, things that are mediocre, things that aren't bad at all. Or, you could categorize them by: things I can change, things I can't change and things that don't need to be changed. Sometimes when you write your problems down you start realizing that they really are not all that bad and you can get over them and come out on top. Does that make sense?

I hope this helped and if you need someone to talk to feel free to pm or aim me.

Hi Brittany,

I'm sorry that your friends aren't listening so much. But hey, we're always here to listen. Don't give up. I know sometimes things can feel impossible - but if you hang in there, moment by moment, you'll get through.


Drown in the music,
dance in the rain,
block out the thunder,
and let the scars fade.
