Thumbs down Regret - June 30th 2009, 08:52 AM

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.

It's not easy to come to that decision. It's terrifying and you have to think "what if i dont do it right" and prepare yourself for what happens after if you survive. It wasn't an easy decision for me 6 months ago. Probably the hardest decision I ever made. And though for awhile I was glad I failed...I still wonder why I didn't do it correctly.

Hey,

I am sorry you are feeling like this I am glad you did fail because you are worth it and so is life. I know right now life might not seem worth it and you might have some regrets about it not working, but you never know what things are going to be like in a few months or even a few years. The point is everything is changing all the time and although you might be feeling like this right now, you won't always feel this way.

I care about you and don't want you to cause any harm to yourself. You know where I am if you ever need anything at all! Don't be alone with it all because that can make it so much harder.

Stay strong and don't give up :-)

Hey Mystery,

I'm sorry that that's bugging you. But maybe try not to look back and wonder at what happened - look forward and try to live and not let any sort of past regret cloud over the chance that you now have to find out why it was a good thing that suicide didn't work.

Hang in there.


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

I feel that if it was a hard decision, it's almost like there was a part of you that wanted you to live... Maybe you still haven't learned all you could from life yet; it wasn't your time, etc. Perhaps that is what saved you... Your own thread of will and hope that held onto your life..?

Personally, I know that I would regret killing myself because I would realize how much it would hurt those who love me or care about me, and I don't want them to feel guilty as well.

There are just those tough times when one may feel like he/she can't handle reality anymore, but I believe you are strong enough to make it through the regret, pain, tears, stress...whatever it is. [Everyone is] But, as hard as it may be, you have to realize that by allowing the passage of time, the pain will subside... It's just your control over your own suffering that is extending your regretful feelings.

..Am I making any sense? I'm only trying to help, I really hope I am not sounding offensive or judgmental, because that is far from my intentions. I'm only trying to communicate with you from one open mind in attempt to make everything clearer, y'know?

I really hope I am being helpful. Be sure to let me know if I'm not, or I have done or said something wrong, alright?


I want to get inside your mind;
I want you to expand mine.

Hey there,

I am sorry you are feeling this way at the moment.

I know the feeling. I truly do and I used to struggle with this question all the time but then I started thinking maybe the reason I didn't do it right was because there was still so much more here that I had to do. If I weren't here I would have never been able to accomplish those things(whatever they may be). I will admit that sometimes those regrets come back but in the end I try to think back to that thought.

You have so much more life to live and so much more to offer in this life. You can do whatever you want with your life. I know it is hard at times but the good days are worth the bad days.

Please hang in there and if you ever need to talk pm me.
