Ways of coping with death - May 8th 2011, 03:13 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.

About 2 years ago, my bestfriend killed himself (and I don't really talk about it, so there are no details) But I never really learnt to deal with the greif, so after two attempts of my own to take my own life I just became depressed, and was self harming and drinking too much. I still do both those things because I really have never found anyone I was comfortable to talk about my feelings with. So I would just like to know what the best way to deal with the pain of not having somone you loved around anymore. Thanks

Hey Emma,

I am so sorry to hear about your best friend. But I don't think you trying to take your own life is the answer to this. You know how much it hurts to lose someone so close so if you took your own life you would leave your family and friends feeling the same if not worse than how you feel now.

Talking to someone is a good way to learn to cope with your grief. Have you ever considered seeing a counsellor? If not then I think you should give it a go because they would be able to help you deal with the loss of your best friend and find other ways to cope.

Your best friend may not be here with you but he will always be with you in your heart forever. Of course you will never forget him but I guess in time the pain should become less. You have to try to focus on the happy memories that you spent together and when you are feeling depressed hold onto these.

Stay strong.

You can do anything you want to
