Thumbs down I nearly stepped in front of a car today.. - January 23rd 2010, 05:41 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 know no one will want to read it and you don't have to. I just wanted to write it down.
So yeah I was walking home and every time I heard a car behind me I had to stop myself from stepping out in front of it and kill myself. One time I actually stopped and turned around and watched and WAITED for the car behind me drive past me so I could walk out in front of it.. And I knew it would work because people die from being hit by cars all the time, and it wouldn't look like suicide, so no one would know and no one woudl judge me, and no one would care. It was so easy. The only thing that stopped me was the fact that I didn't want to make a mess, and my dog was at home on his own, and I couldn't leave him. How sad.

Hi Jazz,

Im so sorry you feel like this. I know it seems easy....suicide....but really it's not. You must think of the after math. You know, how would your family and friends feel and cope. - They would be torn to pieces, it would kill them.
How would you dog cope without you, he would be thinking 'where is my owner, I want my mummy back', you would also ruin that innocent person who hit you, there lives.

I know things are difficult, but things do get better, I wish you wouldnt jump in front of a car, there are much more things to live for.

Why dont you try some counselling....you dont have to go into details and you are not forced to say anything....but I believe you have a lot of hidden anger and emotion that you need to get out.

Take care

Jaymi

Hey Jazz
Im sorry to hear you are suicidal, and were so close to taking your own life. That is really sad Deep down though you know you do not want to die. You know that you cannot leave things behind! Like the above post said, think of how many people's lives will be wrecked. Your friends and family. And what about the innocent driver, who just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Imagine how he would feel.

First off, if you did step in front of a car and kill yourself, people would care. You may think that nobody would notice and nobody would care, but they do. There's always people in this world who care about you and don't want you to kill yourself. I have been hit by a car, when I was 17, and it feels terrible. It's not a good feeling if it didn't work, then you have to go to the Hospital and have bruises and possibly broken bones, but I didn't get hit deliberately. It was an accident and it made me realize how much life is worth, and it's worth living, that it's precious and it can be taken away from you quickly so you should cherish the time you have, and things always do get better. When you are faced with a near death experience, you realize how much you really want to live and that you really don't want to die.

Yeah, I've calmed down some now and I'm feeling a bit better.. I'm not gonna do that again, not the car bit anyways.. I never once thought about the driver, and now I have gotten a bit of my sanity back, I can't stop thinking about the driver and how he/she would have felt =/
I'm so selfish.
No one would care, but I'm not really fussed about that. I've learnt to live my life not caring if people like me or not, and what they think of me.
Thank you all for the replies, very grateful =)

I'm very happy that we were able to help you, that you realized, death is not the right way out. And considered how the driver would feel.
People would care, us for instance. We care about you and you're a part of the forums now, you know you can come here and talk to us anytime and we're here for you. I'm available if you need a friend, anytime.
