PUT DOWN THOSE DAMN VIDEO GAMES, and call your parents to see how they're doing! Just a phone call, anon.. just a damn phone call to say hi and ask them if they're alright.
>implying I'm not at my mom's house right now
I need to get out of here ;-;
you dont have to leave your parents house until like 22-23
assuming you're in some university
no reason to leave until you find a decent stable job
that doesnt mean get all cozy
but its stupid to rush to move into an apartment somewhere and be an even bigger drain on your parents because you cant support yourself yet
Exactly. I agree with you. However for me it's a bit different because in my culture we take care of our parents when they're at old age to support them. My grandparents lived with us till they passed away.
Man that's tough of you
>Tfw one of my best friends got killed in an accident last week
Hit me so hard. It's honestly the first time I ever experienced such a loss. He was my friend since elementary school. What's worse is that he got killed by a 16 year old driver. Dammit
My dad was a drug dealer who fled the province as soon as he found out he knocked my mom up and my mom is busy having another fucking kid with another fucking guy.
My dad pulled a robin williams 2 years ago
>call your parents to see how they're doing!
Why? They're sleeping in the other room. I already know how they're doing.
When I go back to Uni in a month, I'll probably call them like once a week or something.
my best friend died a year ago
probable suicide, family never told anyone how it happened
the worst part is i don't even feel sad
the day i got the news i just went for a walk and expected to start crying or feel horrible but nothing happened
it's not that i don't care, it's just that i expected things like this would actually make me feel something
guess it's just one of those things that isn't anything like you imagine it
Man I don't even want to think about it. To lose my Parents would be devestating.
Shit man, it's rough, how did you grieve? If you're not crying don't worry, I didn't cry for weeks. When I got the call that he died I was like, "Oh, that sucks", I didn't really feel anything, I was looking up on the internet if I'm fucked up because I couldn't feel sad about my best friend dying, I was one of the first people they called, why couldn't I cry?
It wasn't until a few weeks later that I realised I didn't really accept that he was gone. I was still waiting for him to call me every day so we could talk like we used to, eventually I was at the pub catching up with friends from high-school and I was like, "Hey, we should call Danny", and it just kept ringing and ringing and ringing and I burst into tears right there in the bar, I was a wreck, I kept yelling for him to pick up, I miss him like crazy, I wish I could call him right now but I know he won't pick up, it'll just keep fucking ringing.
You should befriend your friend's killer. Slowly gaining their trust over many years. Become so close that they would never suspect they have wronged you, and they would never expect a betrayal.
I talk to my parents almost every day. They call me or I call them and we talk about our day and bullshit around for a little bit.
You know it happened to me too. My grandparents passed away and I was really close to them, yet I didn't shed a single tear and didn't show much emotion while my Mother was crying a lot. I guess I was just being optimistic and thinking they're in a better place now
>hey your dad killed himself here's some memes!
>Live with parents
I see them everyday and can confirm they are doing just fine aside from my dad's addiction to gambling and my mother's crushing alcoholism.
I really need to get the fuck out of here but I'd feel bad leaving my 8 year old brother in the hands of my parents because they can suck sometimes.
>tfw she'll likely be reminded every single day of her dads death from letters she gets for the next 6 months
What a great thing to wake up to
>YAY I WON'T SEE MY DAD TODAY
>>hey your dad killed himself here's some memes!
>>post to twitter pls
Also, suggest something to watch with Robbie Williams. I've seen probably 2-3 movies with him
Do you think hot steamy grief sex would make Zelda feel better? I'm thinking about offering my services to her on twitter but only if it'll make her feel better. If not I'll just mail her a condom filled with some jizz
As someone who has dealt with depression and suicidal thoughts for most of his life, go fuck yourself with a razor dildo.
Seriously. I have no desire to explain why that is wrong. Just go eat a bag of dicks. Be a dear and choke on them, do us all a favor.
Alright /v/ as we speak I have one in the chamber, so this is my last post. GG no re /v/, I am free from this world.
I do OP. one of my biggest fears is getting a last phone call of my parents from the doctor that they died in a preventable death. I also tell them to call me whenever they want something heavy to move.
>you'll never muster the courage to end your own life
It's like you're in a skyscraper, and there's a fire. Suicide is when the fear of jumping out of the window is a bit less than the fear of fire that's burning you alive right now. Suicide is not "Lol I should kill myself".
I'm still wondering why exactly he committed suicide. I mean he was a great actor and has a lovely family. What could have caused such a man to commit suicide of all things? I really didn't expect this from him but whatever he was dealing with must have been tough
>not this one
I've see that one, yeah. It's alright, so is Good Morning, Vietnam. Never heard of anything else by him.
Not a joke, I'm just not into all these names.
>tfw haven't spoke to my father for 3 months, a recovering alcoholic who went AWOL after his mother died and spent a month in intensive care ina coma.
>tfw he's smart as hell and funny, and ok now
>but i still haven't forgiven him for what he did when I was a kid
>mfw I actually asked my mother if she wanted me to murder him when I was younger
You are at the apex of a burning building. Your only options for escape are to either jump from the structure and plummet to your death, or to wait for the flames to find and slowly burn you to death.
The threads on /v/ that don't have to do with video games are always better than the board meant for the type of discussion going on
Holy fuck you goddamn mongoloids a fucking friend or a girlfriend or a goddamn pet can cure your depression but those things can't put out a fire.
Stop being such fucknig wimps.
>I'M BURNING INSIDE MAMAAAAAAAAAA
This makes me feel a little less shit. I'm 20, still living with my mom, and have been seeking jobs since I was 16 and never been hired. I'm putting together a portfolio and working on small projects while I'm in college and making connections.
I want to move out at least by the end of next year. Hopefully I'll get something soon.
>a girlfriend or a goddamn pet can cure your depressio
My girlfriend dumped me the same night my great grandmother passed away in the room next to me and I found out my dog had brain cancer
That bullshit is what caused my current state
Not him but I have serious health issues one time over of couple of days the sheer realisation of eveything that went wrong or that I missed in my life hit me and I started panicking and freaking out because I was alive, it's like something switched and being alive was wrong, wasn't something deep just that urge to finish it once and for all.
Anyway I was lucky/smart enough to hammer myself with pills before doing anything.
As opposed to living through decades of constant misery and torment? Yeah man, those pussies.
I don't judge anyone for committing suicide. I think it's way more selfish to force someone to stick around with a life they don't want to live, just because you can't let go.
>PUT DOWN THOSE DAMN VIDEO GAMES, and call your parents to see how they're doing! Just a phone call, anon.. just a damn phone call to say hi and ask them if they're alright.
i cant. I've tried contacting my mother but she never answers and my father is nowhere
>decades of constant misery and torment
It's in your hand to change your life.
Shit, you're acting like a NEET who's given up on life even though he's never tried doing anything to improve it.
Bicentennial Man is pretty good, somewhat emotional.
>implying im not a NEET who lives with his parents
What the fuck are you even talking about, man? I'm not depressed, I never have been. I have just witnessed several people go through that shit to know what's up. You seem to be under the impression that people with serious, chronic depression can just "change". That's still not how it works, anon.
when youre so depressed you want to kill yourself then you have a mental illness. Its a bigger problem than the person can handle themselves. thats why the biggest problem is to get them to reach out, because they try so hard to mask the pain.
If I've learned anything from video games it's that if someone has suicidal tendencies you need to try extra hard to save their sorry asses so they can help you in return later
It's a lot harder without quick saves though
>they probably spent a lot of time thinking about it.
this is rarely the case.
Maybe if they have a medical condition or are really old.
Robin Williams had a history of alcohol abuse, he probably wasn't in the best frame of mind when he did it.
>mfw a 14 year old girl hung herself in her backyard in a town near mine because her boyfriend dumped her for somebody else
I've got a suicidal friend. Did a lot to stop him from doing it, then he was fine for a while. Went all depressed again, once again I tried hard to help out. Was fine again for a few months.. now it's happening again.
I just don't know. I'm not gonna say "you won't do it anyway" or anything like that but it's taking a toll on me as well to do this over and over.
And you can decide to not be depressed, releasing other chemicals in your body.
Or if you are, you know, rich and have all the free time in the world, and you have wife, kids, family and fans worldwide, you can do whatever you want and nobody will judge.
There are a million things he could have done instead of hanging himself and leaving the many people who loved him sadder.
It was an asshole move and totally unjustified.
inb4 hurf durh ur normalfag u dont know my pain baaaw CRAAWLIN
I am a 25 year old freindless kissless virgin who has to work his ass off to pay the rent and I dont even enjoy vidya anymore. And guess what, I still find ways to entertain myself and the very thought of suicide is disturbing.
>All these people saying "X is going to die in your lifetime" and whatnot
>That feel when my favorite musician won't die in mine because he's only 9 years older than me
People can do to their body what they wish to do. It's their's.
however, crying about your problems on facebook or being extremely vocal about your MANGINA makes me want to commit murder suicide.
Go to /adv/.
>and the very thought of suicide is disturbing.
You're a fucking moron if you truly think because you haven't suffered from it no one else will, or they simply need to "cheer up!"
I was chatting with my parents just before going to this thread. Apparently they went for a medical checkup and found out my mom has high cholesterol levels and my dad's got gout again. Been telling them to exercise more frequently, god.
I don't get how people could be so depressed that they'd want to kill themselves while living in relative wealth in a 1st world country.
I mean the guy you're talking about has a fucking friend.
I haven't had a friend in years.
I'd still never kill myself.
Even just eating, jacking off and video games is better than literally nothing ever again.
I'm not even one of those NEETs that gets off to being a loner, I just put up with it while getting my degree.
I am depressed, you mongoloid dicksucker. Its a diagnosed medical condition.
I have a pharmacyload of drugs I am supposed to take, but chose not to.
I am just not a whiny little bitch and I handle it. Git gud.
>tfw mine turned 61 this year

Reaching out to people when you are depressed is hard as well. Nobody would listen to you, and they will keep telling you it's not an issue at all.
If you have friends who are depressed, try to help them. Don't drag them outside or tell them to cheer up and become social, it won't help. Do it gently so they know there is someone who cares and listens.
If you're depressed, then keep going and be strong. As much as you can.
It is. You go to a doctor and they tell you you are depressed. Then you laugh it off, go to another specialist and they confirm.
After that you get your shit together and you stop being depressed, since thats terrible and you are ashamed of being such a squirmy faggot.
yeah sure, the chance of maybe having a long term career will really make me happy.
I'm almost glad that I overthink things then. This world is shit but there's a select few things here that make me stop myself from leaving it. Whenever the thought of 'you wont be around to deal with the aftermath so why bother' comes through my mind I fight it off.
Right now I'm hardly living for myself, but for the sake of a few people left here that are already living through hell and dont deserve more pain. Provided I dont fix myself up before they die, once they do I'm checking out.
>this is rarely the case.
uh, depression is pretty much constant. so, if you're constantly depressed, you're constantly thinking about potentially killing yourself.
I don't claim to have ever been depressed. I abused meth and was neet for 2 years and felt extremely sad about my life, but I never saw a clink so I can't say for certain. However I CAN tell you I thought quite a bit about my life, about hopefully one day making it better (which I did spoilers), but the constant thought of being a fat piece of shit with no job and no future ate at me because I knew I could do better, but all I did was eat, shit ,jerk off, play videogames and do meth. and yea, I thought about taking the .45 from my desk drawer and killing myself.
I had a friend like this aswell.
I just kept comforting him over and over for 8 or so years and he got his shit together.
Start showing him your tired of him doing this shit all the time and he'll realize he's pushing you away
Your friend may not take it the right way though and an hero instead though
The sheer fire way to know when they are going to go through is if they all of a sudden become really nice and slight indications that they are tieing up lose ends or saying their goodbyes.
Ut sounds counter intuitive, but if they are going to do it, they won't tell you and will over compensate.
Okay, I'll bite.
I was a foster child and at about 5 years oldI first met my (half) brother there. I always talked about seeing my mom even if I wasnt allowed to. One day though, my brother got to have a visit with her at the CPS place. It was nice seeing her again but when i came back to the foster home after the visit, my brother was gone. My mother had kidnapped and left me in the foster home.
My brother is dead now and the last time I had a chance to talk to my mother about two years ago, I told her that Ill never forget that she chose him over me. I cant get a hold of her now, she lives in a different state but I havent decided if I have it in me to forgive her. I dont even know if she's still alive.
>m-my depression could beat up your depression!
Really, faggot? If instead of taking pride of it and enjoying it as an excuse to never do anything and to explain why you are such a pathetic failure you would actually try to fight it, you might end up being a happier man.
I am not talking clubbing and social clubs here, I am saying watching movies you like, listening to music you like, getting a pet, trying to make some vidya or learning to play the guitar.
But nope, I am depressed, thus I have the divine right to browse /v/ and complain. Not my fault, guys, I am depressed. fuck all non depressed normalfags.
what's the point of owning a gun if you're not going to kill yourself?
wouldn't you buy the gun AFTER you decided you wanted to kill yourself?
why would you leave it to chance?
It's like buying a chocolate bar just in-case you felt hungry later, of course you're going to end up eating it.
yea well, if you look at it that way, then aren't you being the selfish one? I think people that talk someone out of killing themselves are really just being selfish. the person wants to die but is continuing to live just for your sake.
I was planning on watching a whole bunch of Disney movies with my little sister since I took her to see Disney on ice last weekend.
I can't deal with Genie being dead.
Look man, I know where you're coming from. I was there too. It's hard; almost like you're going out of your way to be a better person than you could ever possibly be for anybody else in the world. It stresses you out worrying for someone.
Now I know this may sound horrible. But...
Or if not that then talk to them about whether they give a fuck about all the extra horseshit you're doing for them. Because though the situation is severe with a life at risk, there is still a line where it is just fucking selfish to ask an unprofessional such as yourself deal with that much crap and maybe it is time to bring in professional help. Doing it alone or spreading it out between a couple friends is too much for some people; you have a life to live too.
I'm not necessarily advocating abandoning them, but if your life feels like shit the whole time, then a life is already lost - yours. Maybe you're in a crap country where health care is expensive as fuck. But you need to let your friend know that shit's getting hard on you and they need to give some back as in get better or we're going to see some professionals.
>tfw birthday in two days
>family has really hinted at getting me a handgun for my birthday (my first gun)
>been having suicidal thoughts of recent
This was not what should be happening ,stop it life
And in this thread we are discussing how he was a faggot to do so, since he had both the time and resource, and the people to help him battle this depression by doing things he liked.
Go to India with his daughter and wife, see the temples, eat shitty food.
Go cage diving in Australia, punch a fucking shark.
Order and assemble a 16 foot model of the Eiffel tower in his back yard.
>what's the point of owning a gun if you're not going to kill yourself?
The only way suicide is justifiable, is if you know you're fucked.
Some examples might be a soldier who gets captured by enemies who are known to torture and kill prisoners, or if you're old as fuck and want to go out with a bang.
Anyone else who kills themselves over depression are weak-minded faggots who can't take suffering.
There's ALWAYS a way out, and ALWAYS someone worse off than you.
>family friend starts dating woman
>woman has young lesbian daughter
>after a couple years together, they decide to get the daughter a gun for her birthday

4chan isnt a single person. I can forgive somebody who dislikes my favorite game.
I cant forgive somebody who kills himself despite having the health, time, resources and family to continue living comfortably for another 20 years.
>Getting a gun for your birthday
What is this Mexico?
>thinking you can convince someone who is clinically depressed that they can be happy
Nigger, what the fuck do you know? It takes medication to deal with real depression. You're just thinking of someone who is sad.
This is why we can't have nice things, armchair psychologists who can't tell the difference between a feeling and a medical condition.
It's good to live in a world where everyone can choose when it's their time to go. *tips fedora*
Mine is next summer.

>America bans chocolate eggs because they could be dangerous to little kids

>get a 14 year old a handgun for birthday
Why murrika? What could she possibly do with it?
but it's like, 3am. I'm sure they'd love to chat with me but they are both in bed and they will be a bit pissed if I call them in the middle of the night just for a chat. Most people would be.
>ALWAYS someone worse off than you
If people had any appreciation for the good in their lives or understood how much harder everyone else has it, they wouldn't be such dicks.
But alas, people are dicks. It's always about "me me me". I'm a mechanic, and 50% of the time we have a bit more difficulty than normal fixing someone's vehicle we get our shit chewed out by a customer because they expect us to magic away their fuck-up - a fuck-up they often don't tell us about, which would go a long way to diagnosing the problem and fixing it.
Then you hand them the bill and they think you're robbing them as if you don't deserve to get paid, or have a secretary, or have running water, or have electricity.
I don't know what is wrong with the world, but people in their 40s or older have the shittiest expectations about life.
>4chan is full of people with daddy issues
I'm not even surprised.
not a hand gun, shotgun.
apparently she liked going hunting.
honestly though, people that want to kill themselves find a way. if it wasn't the shotgun it would have been a kitchen knife. if not a knife, a noose.
I would say theres nothing wrong with suicide so long as you dont have a wife and kid
and millions of people who will all hear the news of your suicide that will affect them all a little bit
because it propagates the idea of the act of suicide
>still getting birthday presents

FUCK YOU AMERICA DO YOU SEE WHAT THE FUCK YOU'RE DOING AT LITTLE KIDS? FUCKING LGBTS AND SHIT YOU GET THOSE LITTLE FAGGOTS ALL CONFUSED
I hate when people say when you want to kill yourself it means the world is your oyster and you have nothing to be afraid of. If you are thinking about killing yourself it is because you can't put up with being upset anymore, if you want to kill yourself and then go skydiving it wont stop you from feeling depressed in that time it takes you to go skydiving and when you're actually doing it.
>convince someone who is clinically depressed that they can be happy
Not convince, retard. Endure. Depression means jack shit if you're a strong minded individual who can actually take a little suffering and go through the pain.
"If you're going through hell, keep going"
- Fat Prime Minister Man
I'll never understand why people decide to end it all by hanging themselves/shooting themselves/whatever.
I've contempleted suicide before, but I always decided that the most sensible way to do it would be to just walk out of my front door and see how far away from home I could get. Just go full innawoods mode.
At least that way I may die with some sense of achievement.
This is a CHRISTIAN image board, as you can plainly see by the background. Please vacate the Lord's premises immediately.
Little did I know that a good friend of mine was dealing with depression the same time I was in middle school. He killed himself and the memories of his funeral and all the people were what kept me from going through with it.
people are under the impression that you are born gay or straight now, even though it's obviously not the case.
The "gay gene" is a real thing but it only makes people more inclined to have that sexuality, it's not a crystal ball that tells the future.
There are also genes associated with homicidal tendencies and pedophilia, it doesn't mean those people necessarily turn out that way.
>Hey, we should call Danny
>it just keeps ringing
>implying 4chan wasnt the bastion of atheism just a few years ago
Only deluded atheistfags believe this. 4chan always went against what was popular. Atheism is no exception.
Go back to leddit/Dwakins forums.
Your father didn't make you look at love letters sent between your mom and the man she was having an affair with when you were 7?
It was pretty fucked up but my dad is still a 10/10 father. Taught me the dangers of 3D women before my balls dropped.
It's clapistan, what'd you expect?
I have mine set to Tomorrow because the darker colors are easier on my eyes
It's been like this for decades m8.
My parents told me my best friend as a kid was totally gay. We
touched dicksas kids and I was always the one to initiate it and he wanted us to stop, but I ended up being straight and him gay. It really is just a mental illness you're born with.
as far as the little lezzy, i don't think she was very vocal about being gay. she just showed interest in girls and guy stuff/sports.
>disappointing my mother ever
She's the center of my life since my father left, I couldn't possibly imagine upsetting her. She is a god damn brutal angel, kicked some of my family's ass on the other side of the country to take my grandmother away from them because they were abusing her and we take care of her now. And she's legally disabled due to back and hand issues making regular daily tasks painful and tiresome for her. I don't know what to do with my life, there's no way she can think highly of me with how much I've been fucking up my education but at the same time if I try killing myself she'll probably resuscitate me so she could kill me herself
Well shit bro, aren't you just the manliest man of all men.
You've never been depressed in your life. Your whole diagnosis was botched, and now you're parading yourself like some sort of a poster boy for defeating depression
>He's never seen King of the Hill

28, still live with my parents, have never had a job/car/bicycle, and dropped out of college. And I'm pretty damned happy, almost proud.
Why do people think this is sad or something? Do you actually give a fuck what society thinks?
My uncle still lives with his parents (my grandparents).
I'm not even joking, there was a time during which he was with a women belonging to a religious sect and they lived happily in a house, but after they broke, my uncle went back to his parents' house. It has been 5 years he's a NEET now. And he's 39.
Huh? When the fuck did I ever say I was depressed? I'm far from depressed, I just think depression is a stupid reason for killing yourself, even if it is a medical condition.
Hell, I could have been a heartless bastard and said that natural selection would have weeded them out, but I didn't.
that's fucking grim.
That's not even that crazy. I have an aunt who's in her mid-40s now and has never lived on her own. First she lived with my uncle, then she briefly lived with us, and for the past decade or so she's been living with my grandparents.
Granted living with your parents/relatives until a later age isn't considered particularly bad here and lots of people stay at home until their late 20s just to save money and shit. But mid-40s is taking it pretty fucking far.

people with depression do not act rationally.
that's the problem.
their perception stops them from viewing things rationally or anayzing problems logically, and sometimes from getting help.
if he was not depressed I am sure he would have agreed with you.

>seeking help for depression
I know depression is usually about inaction and fear and what not but whenever someone suggests I take meds or seek professional help I get pissed off. Like some part of me feels like they're insulting my whole being and just wants to tell them off to no end
Which ends up leading to fear, and then inaction. Go figure
>This entire pic
Man, I've never been one to be sad when celebrities die, but man.....
This is why people should avoid hard drugs like cocaine and heroine.
The high is so amazing that you cannot deal with not being high anymore. You get depressed as fuck when dealing with the low aka sobriety. Now add years and years of doing that shit. Can you imagine how awful sobriety is after that?
That is what drives people to depression and suicidal tendencies. Yet all people are afraid of with hard drugs is stupid little side effects and overdosing. Fucking idiots.
I've got both parents Anon. My dad does similar shit to what your parents do, and that man could live forever. My mom, not so much, but she's doing fine.
Also, depression is a shitter and people on here that keep saying that you can just force yourself to be happy don't actually know what depression feels like. It's not just sadness. Sadness, you can force yourself out of. Depression is a pervasive sadness that stops you from finding enjoyment in things you love. It makes you unwilling to do things, and when you force yourself to do them, makes it all seem pointless. The problem with a lot of peoples' perception of depression is that they look at it logically. And depression isn't logical. It forces a hopeless perspective change that keeps you from being happy. It's not as simple or as one sided as just being sad a lot. That's why when I see people saying stuff like I've read in this thread, it makes me realize how little depression is explained in the public eye. I've had clinical depression since I was a child, seeing therapists since I was in grade school. After a suicide attempt in high school, I decided it was time for me to actually try antidepressants. Shit's been better since. My point is that real, clinical depression isn't something you can will away. If it's really not that bad, and therapists/friends can help, then that's fantastic and good for you. But that's not the kind of depression that people kill themselves over. That kind of depression is a more influential force than people realize.
Fuck, that post started out as "shit on here isn't that bad man" and then turned around to be heavy. Whoops.
They call me weekly to ask if I'm alright.
They must still have some hope for the failure son of theirs.
>I can't enjoy things anymore
>might as well kill myself
That's how depression sounds how you describe it. It sounds stupid no matter how you look at it. If you can't be happy, then live with being sad. Man the fuck up.

I have no idea how depression is, but I am convinced that it massively impacts on your perception and behavior so helping yourself is nigh impossible, because a person who acts rationally would exclude the possibility of suicide from their life.
>but I am convinced that it massively impacts on your perception and behavior so helping yourself is nigh impossible
Having just come from it, that sounds pretty right. It's fucking shit and you end up in this spiral.
My particular one was probably the same as lots of people here.
>Man I'm bored
>Why am I bored?
>I have too much free time
>Why do I have to much free time?
>Because I don't have a job
>Why don't I have a job?

I respect your fetish anon, its just not for me
How in the fuck would someone that's against suicide handle depression then? Perhaps someone that for strong religious/moral reasons find suicide to be completely unfathomable and out of the question?
When you have clinical depression, your view on things isn't like that. That's what makes real depression serious. Your perspective on shit changes. So you, without depression, view it as stupid because to you, sadness is better than death. You also find happiness in things, and can't see things from the perspective of a depressed person. To them, it makes sense like that. If you suddenly found that seeing family and friends, playing sports, listening to music, or taking part in any form of entertainment no longer made you happy, you'd understand why it sucks so much. You cease to see a silver lining on anything. The only reason you say live with being sad if you can't be happy is because you don't actually know what living being sad is. I'm sure you've been sad before, but like I said above, being sad and living with depression aren't the same thing. The fact that you said "Man the fuck up" just proves that you don't understand, and I highly doubt anything on here is going to change your mind. I hope that one day you understand, if only so that you can learn to put yourself in others' shoes better.
>How in the fuck would someone that's against suicide handle depression then?
I went through that. It's fucking horrible, because it feels like there is no way out.
You go to bed every night hoping that you don't wake up. Sometimes you think "man, why don't I just kill myself?" but then you realise you are too much of a pussy to even do that and it makes you feel worse.
Sorry if I don't understand, but I just have a strong beliefs against suicide. That's why I posted >>257528776. I can't imagine even considering suicide.
Like I said, I'd prefer to suffer a lifetime over killing myself. I don't know if it's my pride talking or not, but that's how I feel.
my mom and dad dropped me off in an orphanage in Mexico at 5 years old.
Im not even mexican.
they drove ALL THE WAY TO MICHOACAN FROM CALIFORNIA AND DROPPED ME OFF AT AN ORPHANAGE
they could have left me at any godamn firestation but no lets make a huge fucking DEAL about it
If i have kids, Ill love them and be there every single day.
>Like I said, I'd prefer to suffer a lifetime over killing myself
Because you aren't depressed. There is no pride when you are depressed. You just want a way out. Whether or not you kill yourself or just beg for a button to cease your existence depends on the person I guess.
