Burden - May 22nd 2011, 12:57 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.

This might sound like a stupid post but it's just something on my mind.

I feel like wherever I go I am a burden to everyone. I'm not trying to get attention and if you think that I'm sorry I just idk feel like I would be better off dead than being here when all I feel like I do is make everyones lives worse. Just a thought..

I often feel that way, unfortunately. The good thing is, you're not a burden. No matter how annoying you may feel, you're not a burden. Remember that. You're important to many people. PM me if you want to talk.

It doesn't sound stupid at all. I've felt that way before too. But them I realized that I'm not a burden and neither are you.
Nobody is better off dead. I completely understand why you might feel that way, but you deserve to live.
Feel free to PM me if you want to talk. I'm a good listener.

It's just hard to explain how I feel to anyone.. but I know that there are people who do understand yet I just feel stupid talking to them about my problems because then I just feel like I am wasting there time.

No one is a burden, sometimes we go through things that are tough and it may seem like we are a burden but your not. Life can be hard and it can be messy but you are not better of dead. Think about your family and friends they don't want to see you hurting. Family and friends never fully recover when a loved one commites suicide. Have you talked to anyone about your feelings? If not i strongly urge you to. Remember i am here if you need to chantel any time.

I've felt that way before, but let me tell you that it's not true at all; it's rather a phase people tend to go through. You're not a burden at all even if you feel like it. Eventually you'll see what I mean in that the world would be a whole lot worse without you. You have no idea how many people care about you, including us at TeenHelp . We, your friends, your family, close adults/children, and even strangers have smiled because of you. You have no idea how many days you've made! Please think about this! Carpe Diem.

well, saying that your a burden here is almost offensive if we didn't know the feeling. and just as there are people here reaching out, there are people in your life that i promise would crush your feeling of burden. Im sure theres more going on, so feel free to pm.
