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'm not sure about anything anymore. I'm a really nice, thoughtful guy and I try to see things from a positive view. But I can't keep pretending I'm not depressed and suicidal... I've never had anyone to talk to, I'm the only boy in family with 4 sisters. I have not seen my dad since I was 11. So I'm all alone. I have friends but none who I can really talk to. I feel like no one cares anymore, and I'm starting to feel like I don't care about anything. Not a day goes by that I don't think about suicide and what it would be like not to suffer anymore. I just need to know that someone care and someone I can talk to and relate to...

Im sorry babe=( I suggest talking to a teacher or a school counceler. They will be able to get you the help you need. And babe, people do care about you. Every moment of your life forever, there will always be someone who cares and loves you. You may not know who the person is sometimes, but that doesn't mean there isn't one. You don't need to know a person well in order to care about them.

Hey... I use to be the most outgoing positive person but than one day I realized I had those thoughts of dying suicide...I started cutting, I had friends so I tried talking to them, they all shut me out they said what I was doing wasn't right and they didn't wanna be my friends anymore. Ever since than things have just gotten worse, I have no one to talk to. That is why I joined teen help so I could find people who could relate and talk to and maybe help me...so I wanna do the same for u, please feel free to pm me if u ever wanna talk about anything...and this might not mean much but...I'm a random stranger and I still care about u

I'm sorry that you're going through with this! Just try keep seeing things from a positive perspective, it really does help! But at the same time do not ignore those feelings of depression/suicide because they are very serious!

I'm sure people do care about you! Your friends and family do even if it might not seem like it. Depression has a way of masking things so it looks like you have nobody on your side, but you do! Maybe you could tell an adult about what you're going through so that you can get help? For instance your mom or a teacher/guidance counselor at school! I seriously think that would be the best thing that you can do right now!

Please keep hanging on, life does get better! Feel free to PM me if you want to talk!

all i want is a place to call my own and
mend the hearts of everyone who feels alone,
you know to keep your hopes up high and your head down low.

Hi there,

I'm sorry things are tough for you right now, but I'm sure there is something out there for you to live for. Since you have siblings, can you not talk to them? I understand that they're girls and you may not feel as though they can 'relate' to you, but I'm sure they can help you get through this hard time They are family after all and if you could talk to one of your sisters at least (maybe the one that you get on most with). Also, if you're feeling suicidal, it may be good to seek some help. There are a lot of places out there and people who are there to help, so maybe talk to a school counselor and they can find you the help you deserve. There are plenty of things that can help.

I hope things work out for you,
Take care.

Hey Ricardo, I'm new here but I still want to tell you this.

A guy in my community committed suicide. The high school grieved for weeks...as did his parents and friends.
Please rethink this; suicide is not a way out. You're actually creating more problems for your family and friends, all the people in your life. And suicide is contagious. Don't tell me you'd want your sisters killing themselves because they're sad and think that suicide is acceptable because you did it. Please, don't.

You have no idea how this will affect EVERYONE. I'm sure that guy in my school never even thought that his death would affect our town in the way it did. Please, don't. It's heart breaking...people just crying in the halls and you immediately know why.

Don't, don't , don't do this. People love you. They do, even if you're the quietest, shyest guy in the school, somebody loves you. And if you think that by killing yourself you would get all this great attention, back up a step: the attention won't matter, you're dead.

Everyone is put here for a reason. A purpose. You may not know it yet and you may never know but when you take yourself out of the picture all your potential goes with it. You are directly altering the future. Your suicide could cause... I don't know-but you are here for a purpose; you fit into this jigsaw puzzle of life and you are absolutely necessary to complete the picture.

You are needed. You are loved. I promise you that.
