If it's a repost, I'm sorry. This post was from when I first found amirite and didn't know what searching meant. Haha.

You talk like you know me. You don't, though. You don't know that my entire family (me included) stuggles with severe bipolar disorder. You don't know that everyone in my family (me not included) has attempted suicide at least twice throughout their lives. You don't know that a few family members and a majority of my friends struggle with depression and have scars up and down their arms/legs. You don't know that suicide is at the forefront of my thoughts multiple times a day.

The thing is, I'm simply too strong to consider cutting as a crutch. I'm just too strong to turn to substance abuse. I'm too strong to commit suicide. I'm not a selfish ****, and realize the effect that my sudden suicide would have on my friends and family. That aside, I'm just not an idiot. I'd go get help, confess all my feelings, etc. Before even thinking of seriously commiting suicide. I'll be the first too admit that I lose hope on a daily basis, I just don't give in.

You should've explained that first. I'm glad that you don't. And I applaud you for it. I'm not saying committing suicide is right, and I'm not exactly saying that they have an excuse. Because it is possible to get help. I did. But what I said is true. Hopelessness is easy to fall into. And once you get to that point, you don't know how to get help, even when the answer is obvious.

I find suicide acceptable in the event that the only other alternative is a slow, painful death.

Other than that, suicide is the product of people who don't know how to handle their problems, make any attempt at facing them, refuse to get help, let their **** cloud their vision, or simply can't handle the stresses of day to day living. In any case, they're weak. Strong people don't lose hope. Hope is what makes a person strong, if they lose hope, they are weak.

If any healthy person in a developed country truly believes that they should commit suicide, maybe they should. I'd hate to see what a real problem does to them.

That's ridiculous. You might be right about the fact that they don't know how to properly handle their stress. I struggled with figuring that out. But saying they're weak is completely wrong. You would have no idea what it's like. Every day is proof of your strength. I'm not saying it's right. But I do not agree with you.

its funny though, how people like us can go through a day laughing at the people who pretend that they cut, the people that just want attention, but really we are constantly jealous that those people are getting noticed, even if it is for the wrong reason. by the way i was the anonymous that you responded to.

Yeah, that's a good point. Most of us suffer silently. The most common thing you hear on actual suicides is, "We had no idea." That's WHY they kill themselves. They keep it bottled up, and that is why they lose hope.

people often assume depressed people are weak. this isnt true. they always assumee that they only have to worry about the kids who seem like they have a problem, when the kids with real problems hide it so well that nobody can tell. then they feel abandoned because they feel like they cannot trust anyone, until they feel like they have lost everything. they are not week, they just cant see the point of living anymore. dont debate over this unless you know. ive been there. im trying to get out.

So you're saying that a weak person can't lose hope and a person with no hope can't be weak?

I think the two go hand in hand fairly often, no?

No. I'm saying most people don't kill themselves because of the fact that they're weak. They kill themselves because of the fact that they have no hope left.
Weak people can have a hope of becoming stronger to cling to. But hopeless people can't.

I think one family sits on a side of the church. But because its a redneck wedding and they're marrying a cousin, they belong to the same family. So they sit on one side. Make sense? Lol after you get it, its pretty funny.

I understand. That's how it has always been for me. But you don't have to be! All it takes is one decision to step out. And I promise your life will change after that. :)

Hmmm... Not necessarily "try" to be mature. That's just the way some people are, and it can be a really good thing for a person's future (especially one that is in high school). But it can also deprive that person of the experiences that everybody else experiences, just like you said. So there must be a certain level at which a person must stop, in order to get the best of both "worlds". But it is true that many of these people strive for perfection, and there is nothing wrong with that, but it may cause them to lose their direction.

I completely agree. I'm not talking about striving to be the best that you can. That's great. I just mean, we can't lose the part of us that lets us enjoy life without constantly worrying about things.

Some people try to be so mature, perfect, and "grown up" that they miss the beauty of just living. We don't have to be grown up all the time. Life's supposed to be fun.

I'm not talking about women who wear it just because they like it. I'm talking about women who wear low cut shirts and then blame guys for staring. That's their own fault.
