It used to cross my mind often when I was young and uncertain of my future. Between 18 and 23. Once you really take control of your own life and decide what you are going to do with it it starts to fade. Your relationships with people... friends, lovers, and family change for the better as you age too.

If you're still contemplating suicide past 25, you should seek therapy. Seriously, crunchyroll can't help you like a professional can.

yea it crosses my mind every once in a while but im either too much of a coward or too proud to do myself in. usually the thoughts would be along the lines of intentionally getting murdered or having a fatal disease.

start by changing your diet, dont eat crap and expect your brain to function properly.
Then go outside, nothing will happen in your room.
Then forget about the poor you, and go help somebody else that's worse off.

if you still feel like dying after earnestly doing all that, go see a doctor.

It's a foolish thought. No matter how bad your day is, unless you're grievously injured and about to die anyway, you don't have it as bad as some others who'd give anything to switch places with you but can't.

I've seen some really gnarly and severe accidents as well as watched a few executions, and I can tell you that you feel a whole lot better about where you are in life after seeing that stuff.

The world isn't a fair place. Bad things happen to good people and vice versa, but you can either deal or you can't. It's up to you. I'm not saying it's wrong or abnormal to have suicidal or negative thoughts sometimes....but acting on them is a really shallow display of selfishness in most cases.

The ignorance of some people truly astounds me to a massive degree. You have no idea what has transpired in peoples lives which makes them think they have nothing to live for. It's real easy to tell others what they should do when you don't even have the slightest idea what they're going through or how they feel.

Sure, it's crossed my minds a couple times. I've thought hard about what it would do to everyone in my life, so I've never actually thought of doing it seriously though.

On a random tangent, I couldn't help but finish the title of the forum topic: "Suicide. Lost the Lead." Yeah, I'm really irreverent...

I was depressed before. But I realized myself.It came across my mind alot during that period. But I realized that I did want to live. But the pain doesn't go away simply because you do want to live.I don't remember the exact details.It was an in-the-moment thing.But basically I was determined to become a stronger person. So depression would never hold me like that again. I noticed I lacked motivation and conviction,and most of all self awareness.I was brought up with the beliefs of my ancestors and popular culture.I didn't know that I had to one day let go of those and live the life I wanted.

So I focused on analyzing the things I care about in life,the things that I want to do with my life,The things I love,and the things I hate. I lacked resolve to handle my challenges.So I carefully took that all into consideration,and then made a resolve that circles around those things that I care about.Because of this:I've made some sacrifices(that I would not recommend anyone make).But all in all:I drove myself out of depression.I have a very unique(warped is a better word) mindset because of my vision on this world and people in general as a result. But I realize that it is I who determines who I am. Not anyone. If I know who I am. Other peoples views don't matter.

I can say that some people think depression is a choice. Some people think that people who are depressed are crazy. It's sad to me. It is a serious matter.For me-It forced me to either mature at a very young age. Or let it get worse enough to the point of killing myself.It could of easily have been that kind of 50/50.It's not something to look down on.For me, I honestly think depression is the effect of someones reality crumbling. And realizing that truthfully you have no one to sympathize with(although that may not be true in others cases).Although many peoples depressions are different. And in such no one has the exact experiences.

Depression,for me,has made me a stronger person.In a weird way I'm happy I experienced it. I wouldn't have it any other way.I realize that all experiences in life have it's consequences. Good or bad, You need to be strong enough to get past it everyday.You need to clarify your decisions and sacrifices. Make sure want to do what you're doing.If you really don't want to do it. DO NOT DO IT. That sounds simple.It's hard though.But those rules help me put right and wrong in my interpretation. And not what someone tells me is/or isn't.So I am no longer abused by anyone mentally. I've also learned through the experienced. That you NEED to be honest with yourself. Analyze, if you are depressed disgusted etc. Now, even through my modernly rough times,I never think of suicide. The only thing I think of sacrificing my life for is for the people I care for.

If suicide comes up alot for you. Analyze. Think thoroughly:Do you want to die?Is that really what you want?Do you want to live? Consider there are people who've gone through(not the same but)similar things.Consider the people who care about you to whatever extent you determine.

Whether you read this or not is up to you. I don't expect it to be read fully. Everyone hates text walls I know(laughs for me). But for once and sincerely: I hopes his helps you..

i had a dark point in my life where there wasn't a day which i hadn't thought of it and cried myself to sleep (literally every day for about 2 years).... while i wont go into detail ill explain the basic situation (please keep in mind this is really hard just to write so please don't make any stupid comments since i think maybe someone will benefit from my past at least a little);

I had social anxiety... bad enough for if any more then 6 people were conscientiously paying attention to me i would freeze up and be rendered unable to speak and if any hostility was shown in it i would almost start crying on the spot and would take every ounce of strength just to stop myself from doing so... this however, never worked if i were to get in trouble from my parents or teachers...
I'd basically convince myself that i was completely useless whenever i got into trouble and no matter what i did i would never amount to anything so any past work i'd done (e.g. top grades) meant nothing and i basically have to start from square 1 again and work my way back up.
<--skipping a lot of painful memories here-->
one day, after school, i was talking to my brother who wanted me to help him fix up his bike (he is 2 years older than me but i rode my bike to school everyday so i knew more about it than he did at the time)... he was someone who when he started getting angry he got violent... so of course being the younger brother i annoyed him (not on purpose nor did i know i was at the time but still, i annoyed him) whilst i was helping him... i think it was something i said but i cant remember... but he turned around and punched me in the face for it... so of course an argument started and when i told him that he made it out so i was lower than the earth i stood on in comparison to him... he turned around and yelled at me these exact words "YOU ARE NOTHING IN COMPARISON TO ME! IF I WERE TO COMPARE US, YOU ARE WORTHLESS AND IT WOULD'VE BE BETTER IF YOU WEREN'T BORN... in comparison to you, i am perfect...."
by this stage i had already been telling myself this for years and just hearing someone confirm it made it all the worse... if you say it to yourself you can shrug it off but if someone confirms it then it can no longer be ignored... this was the first time i legitimately ran away from home for a week without telling anyone where i was going or even knowing where i was going before i went... i even went so far as to seriously consider buying rat poison to end it all but something stopped me and i still don't know what did...

i probably wouldn't be alive right now if i hadn't snapped again later that year at school (quite literally how you picture a twig snapping is what happened in my mind) and that day i basically disconnected my emotions from every other part of my life... i physically had to relearn how to smile and laugh and act angry and sad (and i still have trouble with it to this day)... but from that moment onward i decided i was never going to let myself get that bad again, even if it meant burying all the painful memories deep into my subconscious where i could recall them if i thought about them hard enough but it still makes me cry every time i do as it is basically a flood gate of memories.

if anyone seriously is thinking that it will be easier being dead, it really isn't... we continue fighting a losing battle every day just so we know what it feels like to truly live... every experience shapes who you are, even if it is the smallest thing (known as the butterfly effect) and only since i have felt incredible amounts of depression and sorrow do i truly understand how much i mean to those around me...

but believe me, i know it sucks right now but the "silver lining" will eventually reveal itself to you.

(P.S. sorry for super long post but i feel it was necessary to convey context)

Never crosses my mind. I also have no sympathy for the majority that commit suicide.

I believe that adults who are unemployed and have no children or spouse should be granted the right to an assisted suicide, regardless of whether they are depressed or not. Emotions should not stand in the way of doing the right thing and giving people freedom of choice.

Good, because we shall not be their enablers by providing them the attention that they crave.
