  • How do I talk myself out of suicide?

    I've been thinking about suicide for a while now and at this point I just want to do it. I actually attempted suicide a few weeks ago but I got caught by someone and they stopped me. I just don't see the point in living. I feel like I've wasted my life up till this point (I'm only 13 but still, 13 years is a lot of time and I've done nothing) and I know that I'm probably not going to do anything important with my life. There just isn't a point anymore. Please help.

    Hey,

    Welcome to the community. It's really brave of you to reach out to us.

    Just a quick heads up, the boards aren't the best place to talk about suicidal thoughts in detail. You're welcome to talk about the feelings behind it, but we do need to keep things safe for the community so straying away from anything too heavy or specific is a good idea. If you would like a space to talk more openly about suicide or you find yourself at breaking point, we'd really recommend speaking to Samaritans or Papyrus.

    That said, the boards are usually a great place to talk through wider issues you might be having. For example, the feeling about not doing anything important with your life - that's definitely something the community can explore with you.

    Is there anything specific making you think that, or is it more of a general feeling? Are you in school at the moment?

    You're doing really well to post here, let us know how you're getting on.
    'Oh, you can't help that,' said the Cat: 'we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad.'

    'How do you know I'm mad?' said Alice.

    'You must be,' said the Cat, 'or you wouldn't have come here.'
