Do you think people who write things publicly about their suicide are just looking for attention?
@beckable8p, “Do not pray for an easy life, pray for the strength to endure a difficult one” -Bruce Lee.
Whether it is the conventional praying to a ‘God’ for strength, or praying to the Universe as a whole like I do…I’ve found it be quite useful, especially because I find it nearly impossible to meditate because my mind is always racing.
You said your heart gets lonely if you don’t have someone to hold it. But you have to realize that YOU are the one holding your heart…literally. Your heart is much too precious and important to allow its well-being to rest with someone else. I made that mistake once, and I got hurt…but I learned and grew from the experience.
I watched some of your YouTube videos and all I can say is… WOW! Taylor Swift better watch out :P I can tell you’re truly a special person.
@beckable8p, I have been in situations where i had to deal with people who are suicidal. for every person that came to me though with their problem, i couldnt just say that they were doing it for attention and just ignore them or to get over it, its much deeper than that sometimes. For all I know they could be attention whores (Ive delt with a few that used “suicide attempts” as a way for attention), or (maybe less likely but still very very possible) they are scared of what they might do to themselves and need help. I feel that as a duty to my friends and other humans to help when they are in need, I would rather help someone who doesnt need help, believing im doing the right thing, as opposed to going on with my day and assuming they just want attention. For the first situation if i am wrong, whatever i wasted 30 minutes, 2 hours, whatever amount of time, But if I am wrong on the second, and that person really did need the help of someone… that would be a lot for me to try to handle, knowing i could have made a difference.
In my eyes, suicide should never be an option, every problem can be fixed, its never too late to restart.
