I think they are annoying attention seeking freaks! :)
This is going to sound terrible....<br />
I get very annoyed, and angry, those are my first reactions to anyone attempting to manipulate me. <br />
That is what I beleave most people who talk about suicide are attempting to do. Manipulate others into showing them the level of attention they crave. <br />
They are childish selfish people who havent learned how to ask for attention in a mature way. <br />
People who are serious about committing suicide, are extremely difficult to stop, more often than not they just do it without ever "threatening" in the first place. <br />
(like it or hate it, that's my honest answer)
They have a right to express their feelings just like everyone else. It's as valid as any other ex<x>pression of being a human being in this world. it's right at the edge and important to face that with people
why on earth should anyone "be willing" to get help? what if they tried to get help and got told off instead? or even more misunderstood..or lectured at...what then?
I do not think one should neglect a issue, just because it seems less to you, it might be really important to the one which wish to die. Suicide is a last resort, so perhaps instead of telling them how to fix things, try making them realize there is more to live for.
Well, it might feel like so to a person. One should be considerate if the person really liked their job.
Think about how he feels then... like he has no value, perhaps he feels his life holds no meaning. There might be a depth into what he is feeling in regards of having troubles getting a job. If he always had trouble finding a job, it will feel more troublesome to him. Considering someones situation is important. I would not look down at someone for having a hard time in life.
No your not heartless, you just can not accept another aspect , another approach than what you did. Though, some are more sensitive. It might feel wrong to comfort someone when you already has a path chosen. People are different. It is not cowardly to say what one feel, it is bravery to speak what one feel. He knows his limits, and sometimes giving up, it is not really that bad. Beside he pick himself up and move on in the end. So in a way, I would say he is stumbling to find his path. Because you have found your way, you should be able to extend a hand to guide... or am I wrong?
I wanted to kill myself pretty much all my life really, but I never told anyone tho, Not in real life anyway, except maybe the recent years a little more. Cause I dont feel the same anymore.<br />
In many ways tho I suckered myself, lol. Cause like I never brake any promises, and I promised myself I wasent gonna kill myself, no matter how much I wanted to.<br />
And yeah, I met many who throw around the word suicide a lot as well. My sis did it like everyday before. Still, I always kinda was envious when it came to her.
I guess it depends on their mental/psychogical health. Some people only say it for help but others use it to seek attention, not all people who say it are attention seeking but then not all people who say it actually manage to do it...
call their mother or tell them where they can buy a gun
I think that they just want attention, definitely they have issues, but their issues are probably not as serious as they seem to think they are...
I'd give them resources to get professional help and encourage them to seek it out and find someone more qualified than me to talk to...if they don't then they don't really want help. What can the average person do for someone like that other than listen to them and point them in the right direction to get help? If they kept whining than it would be obvious they were only wanting attention and eventually I would ignore them. if they did eventually kill themselves I wouldn't feel guilty, because not seeking help from professionals is their own fault not mine.
damn see a ******* therapist....i tried to reason with you but you continue to be irrational
gives me the shites..
I grow weary of it and go away from them
