Exclamation HELP! - June 25th 2011, 07:38 PM

My best friend is telling me that she was thinking about commiting suicide but she told me that if I tell anyone, that will be the last straw and she won't be able to live if that happened. What should I do?!?! HELP!

If she really is considering it then you do need to tell someone. It could just be that she has a lot going on in her life and feels overwhelmed. You can call the suicide hotline to get some advice as well.

Telling someone will probably keep her alive rather than end her life. You would be doing her a big favor to tell someone and help her.

Good luck
<3

By telling you that, and asking you to keep it a secrete, she's placed an enormous responsibility on your shoulders. You shouldn't be keeping her secretes. If she's considering killing herself, she needs to be given help and support. Not only by you but a counsellor or psychologist. If you have one at school you could tell them. Ultimately, you could tell her parents or some one close to her that can arrange for her to get help.

She might get mad but that's a he'll of a lot better than her being dead. Tell an adult, her parents, school, etc

tell someone u may think ur not doing the right thing when my friend told my couselor i was mad but i got over and relized he just cares and dosent want any harm to come and ur doing the right thing it may be hard but ur maybe saving her life




Life is too

Short to spend

It at war with

Yourself.

Iím catching stars in the sky because I am fixing the soul within me. May it be from the heart a girl broke years ago or my soul simply repairing itself as it was shattered on my walk on this earth. May the stardust fill those cracks within my soul making me brand new, but never forgetting who I once was.

She might get mad, but after getting the help she needs, she'll thank you. Tell a trusted adult. Sometimes these kind of things are out of our range of support. Good luck.

I agree with everyone else - she may be upset, but it's better than her going through with the suicide. Tell a teacher or a parent, or someone you trust to deal with things discreetly.

I hope everything's okay <3

Re: HELP! - July 9th 2011, 08:01 PM

i think telling parents is not a great idea... people have told my parents on me and it makes you feel like a little kid. i ran away when people told my parents. what made a difference to me was my friend telling someone i couldnt live without. because knowing they didnt wanna live without me made it worth living.
