Suicide is a terrible thing. And feeling suicidal isn't much fun either.

Although I have been doing well emotionally for a long time, for many years in my past, I dealt with serious depression issues. But their are many reasons why I wouldn't want to kill myself.

One reason is that it would devastate my parents. Their's nothing worse than losing your own child. I would not want to put my parents through that. They've always been good to me.

Another reason is that their are many things that this world has to offer that I haven't experienced yet. For example, I've never gone skydiving before. I'd also like to get married someday. I don't want to miss out on great things like that.

Also, I like to try to help people. That's part of why I do volunteer work. If I committed suicide, I wouldn't be able to help try to make the world a better place anymore.

I am in my twenties and I am suppose to be enjoying my time on this earth and doing what I want to do in life. But I think of suicide everyday becuase Inthink I am not good enough and I don't matter. In the day I'm good bout when night comes on it goes a complete 180. I felt like no matter how many friends I make or good deads I do it's never enough. My parents say they are proud of me but deep down I think they are disappointed in me. I am suicidal becuase I think I won't do anything important or relevant to others of my self I would die tomarrow and no one would bat an eye.

I know it will destroy my family, me not being thier to help with the dogs, me not experiencing new things and being apart of the world. I tried many things for my benefit and my detriment. I indulged in lust and gluttony. Then fear and anger and shame. I don't belive in my self and no matter what I do pray to anything or take any medicine to make me feel better. Whoa to the person I talk about it for. I honest believe that I don't deserve nothing, be anything, do anything, or be worthy of being loved. Yet I'm still hear for .y fear on foing to hell or pain to my self. All I can do is hope I go to sleep and won't wake up

That last part is what I thought of while trying to help one of my friends! It seemed to me like... well, isn’t it a tiny bit... selfish? All you think about is... well, you. Thanks for posting, Mike.

One time I was so suicidal that I had made it past what it would do to my wife and kids but was saved by not being able to leave the dog without me. I've done much better the more that I can separate what others think of me with how pleased I am with myself. I try not to worry what others might think of me and concentrate about becoming the best person I can be (not the most financially successful), living by the "golden rule". It has allowed all of my interactions to be more positive and I also try not to rehash anything from the past as it would just be self-critical.

My father wasn't the best father but I couldn't check out on him. Or kitty. After he died and kitty died it was a possible plan. But I found another cat who needed a home.

I have thoughts of suicide very often, but I know the difference between active thougbts and non active suicide thoughts and i know it is something I wont do. Although I did make an attempt about 25 years ago.

even though I know I won't do it, the thoughts ar e sometimes very strong and honestly I just want the pain to end.

3 times in the past 4 or 5 months, I have reached out to the VA suicide hotline .. they have a chat line .. The chat really does help ... even though I tell them up front I know I won't do it.

My mother committed suicide it was tough to deal with and the aftermath and hurt it leaves on love ones is quite difficult.
If those thoughts ever enter anyone's mind
Just remember life will always be difficult but even more for those who loved you unconditionally.
