I need to talk - December 19th 2011, 04:36 AM

I have felt really down and need to talk to someone. I don't feel like I can bother anyone I know with this. I feel like sadness is completely consuming me and I can't do anything about it. Earlier today, I was discouraging an online friend from wanting to kill herself, and I did a terrible job because I was feeling so down. She is okay but in an even worse place emotionally, so what could I say to her when she has it so much worse than I do? I don't feel like I can complain when someone has it so much worse than me, but I'm still not doing well.

I feel ignored and unwanted. The world is so disappointing, and I keep thinking about suicide. I have had suicidal thoughts since I was 11, so it isn't like it is going to change. I don't know what to do anymore. I have tried everything.

Hey there,
First things first: feel free to message me if you want to talk, need someone to yell at, or need someone to cry to. I'm up for all of them. Now, moving on . . everyone deals with things differently. Trust me, I worry about my complaints all the time. True, some people do have it worse than you. But, you also have it worse than a lot of people. It's not necessarily about that though. It's about the way your brain copes with it. Please don't kill yourself, though! I just read through an amazing website that I'd like you to look at when you have time -- http://areason.org/. It'll take about 5 minutes of your time, but please read it!! It helped me. I hope it helps you too.
Take care of yourself. Like I said, message me anytime. I'll get back to you ASAP.


wanderlust consumed her;
foreign hearts & exotic minds compelled her.
she had a gypsy soul
and a vibrant heart for the unknown.

Dear Dream,

I think that is a wonderful username. The existence of dreams signify the existence of potential. While the concept of "infinite potential" may seem strange to some, at the very least, it can be said that potential exists beyond the limits of our current understanding of how things are. Life is full of potential, and every single being has so much of it - so much more than we are aware of. We can never stop growing, learning, and transforming. So, even if the world may appear to be a disappointment - you can only be a disappointment when you give up and cease to challenge the way things are right now in order to awaken your potential.

The site Sammi shared is a great one - one of my all-time favourites, for sure.

I have experienced a persistent attraction to the idea of suicide for many years too, since younger than 11. And yet, it is important to remember that the attraction was not always present. How were things like before 11, or whenever those thoughts first began to make themselves known? How were things at the very beginning of life - before all the suffering of the world made itself known to us and obscured our innate ability to appreciate life? If we want a true, solid direction, in my experience, that is where we should look - to the original voice. And keep in mind that nothing is impossible. If it appears so, allow ourselves to explore deeper. This is the path I have taken, and at this point, the idea of death is nowhere near as appealing as it used to be - because I have found more interesting things to focus my mind on.

Hope this helps,

k
