    A Little Strange, No?

    I think it is endlessly funny that I added this experience.  Adding to it's humor is the fact that for me, I think it really needed to be said.   I have thought about suicide a lot over recent years.  I think about it enough that it has truly alarmed me in the...

    My New Motto

    Don’t take life too seriously. No one gets out alive anyway. (At the end of the day, it is okay. It’s only in the darkness that we can see the stars.)

    I Can't.

    It took me two failed attempts to realise that I was not meant to end my own life. Despite the reoccuring thoughts of death which plague me from time to time, I think I have been managing quite well. Almost seven months of being cut-free has been a strange and powerful experience...

    Never!

    I will not kill myself, just because there are people who's tormenting me with my daily life. Those people aren't worth it if I kill myself to those kind of people then I die for nothing. So yeah that's a stupid act of killing yourself----DIE FOR NOTHING....

    Suicide just isn't worth it.

    Why should you kill yourself? To me its a stupid decision to make when your depressed. Even though I have problems to myself, I just be patient and try to solve it, the hard way. Yes suicide feels good. But by doing it you have no idea how it effects other people.- I read about a...

    The last 18 months have been life changing. It was like death, and in a way I grieved the loss as if it WAS a death, but then again so many miracles happened....there must be a reason why I'm still here. I went from being a married mom of four, trapped in an abusive relationship...

    Not How It Ends

    If I were to do such a thing, I lose a lot and so do others, even if it doesn't feel like it. I won't know how my story is meant to end. My friends (even if it feels like I'm alone, they're still there) will miss me if I'm gone, as will my family. And my future wife (wherever she...

    It's Kinda Creepy

    I've never been suicidal, never seriously thought about doing myself in, though I will admit those thoughts could grab someone. The other day I was driving along, and all of a sudden the thought 'I really need to kill myself'  wandered in.  I've had things like that happen...

    I will not. I will NOT. No matter how much I want to. No matter how much you tell me I want to. I'm not going to. I'm NOT going to. I won't do it. I won't listen to you any more. No. I'm not going to kill myself. I refuse. You have no power over me.
