This should have more notes, seriously. Too many people are trying to kill themselves, it takes a lot of guts to make a video about depression and then realise that you need to heal. I’m glad this girl is still alive, atleast she did the right thing to get help instead of killing herself. I respect this girl so much because she did the right thing and is still in the process of recovering. The ones who kill themselves are SELFISH, the ones who realise they need help and get help, are the ones I look up to as a role model. End of. Rant over.
People who kill themselves are not selfish. They do it because they see no other way of stopping the pain or any other alternative to whatever it may be they’re going through. You cannot judge someone who has committed suicide or someone who has been suicidal until you yourself have been in the same position. It’s not easy nor simple to just get help. It takes guts to take the steps towards getting help and accepting that maybe you’re not fine. But it takes more guts to finally go through with it and end your life. Suicide for some may not be the way forward, but for others, it’s the only way.
I agree with Zak.
I second that ^^
You are telling me not to judge when people automatically judge anyway? I am not discriminating against suicidal people or want to but I am trying to make things clear. It is selfish if you kill yourself. You tell me that some people think the only way forward is to kill themselves but it can easily be fixed with therapy. No matter how long it takes, there is always people out there to help. Whether it is a doctor, psychiatrist, psychologist etc. They are all there to help those who are going through a lot. If your family member killed themselves will you brush it off and say ‘Yeah, it is ok that they are dead now because they killed themselves. They believed they had no other way to end their pain’. My father killed himself from depression and till this day I have not forgiven him. The pain carries onto the loved ones, I am still hurt even though it has been three-years. Regardless, I do not promote suicide. I agree with the girl in the gif, it is not the way forward. I am just glad she is getting help because she deserves to see so many things in this world. Unlike my father, he not only killed himself but emotionally killed me for taking his own life.
Well I’m sorry you’ve had bad experiences, but what about those people who can’t get help? Ever think of that? No one would take a teenager seriously, it is so fucking hard to find thereapists, phsychiatrists, etc. who would take a teenager seriously, or what about those whose parents are just like ‘you can’t go to therapy, you don’t need it, depression isn’t real.’ there ARE parents like that, you know? What’s more selfish, suicide, or forcing someone to live when they desperately want to stop? Everything is selfish, everyone is selfish, it happens let it be. Yes, suicide may not be a good thing, it may not always be the only way, yes, it may cause others pain, but that gives you no right to have complete and utter disrespect of those who’ve gone through with it. You never know a person’s situation, you never know what’s going on in their head, in their heart. You don’t know, so don’t judge.
