No your not. Now go please before I lose control of all I've worked on with my suicide.. I really am thinking of it and how easy itll be to just go.,so please just go and dont worry,dont look back im not worth it.,just go.

Forget the risk. Take the fall. If it's meant to be, it's worth it all.
We will never sleep, 'cause sleep is for the weak
And we will never rest, 'til we're all fucking dead

Maybe try and give him some space but let him know that you'll always be there for him no matter what. Also, if he's making threats about suicide, I suggest talking to an adult about this so that he can get the help that he needs ASAP.

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.

Hey there,

Unfortunately there isn't much you yourself can do. Of course you can be there for him, and I'd encourage you to be so as long as it's not going to harm you, but he will have to deal with this at some point himself. If I were you, I'd offer him my support but also advise him to talk to someone professional about what he is going through. A break up is hard for anyone, and so it is natural for him to be upset about it and to possibly return to old thoughts, however he can overcome this, and if he needs his space that's completely understandable.

Basically, what I'm saying is don't smother him because you're worried. Sometimes people need some space to deal with their emotions in a healthy way and being watched over may not be helpful for him personally. However do be there for him if he needs it and you want to be. Just remember there may be a line and you should take note of that.

In any case I hope he manages to pull through this. Let me know if you need any extra support with dealing with this yourself and I'll be happy to help you if I'm able to.
Keep your chin up.
