I don't understand ignorant people, instead of spewing your uneducated opinion on a subject all over the internet, use the internet to improve your knowledge, amirite?

Can you really be critical since he started the post off with "I don't understand suicidal people"? He already said he doesn't get it. I know I voted YYA on this post because it's something I can't wrap my head around it.

It isn't something that can be helped, well I mean they can't really fix the problem themselves

in most cases of suicide/depression there is a chemical imbalance in the brain. It isn't just they had have had a hard life or are trying to get attention; there is an actual physiological problem. without proper treatment, suicide and suicide attempts often occur.

I think it's more like an eating disorder or something. You could say, "Why don't you just eat?" but it's not like they can just do that. It's a disorder and it needs professional help, not just a change. They need therapy. That may work for unhappy people, but not suicidal people. But that must be a part of the treatment, improving the bad things. I agree that you shouldn't kill yourself, though. And I guess getting help is making a change

Let's just get them to change who they are! You're getting bullied? Discriminated against? No problem, just don't be who you want to be and you'll be fine!

@Geoff easier solution, man up and fight them

What if you are a out-of-shape suicidal person? Gosh, not everybody can break fucking cars with their tounges.

Go to the fucking gym, run every morning, do pull ups on tree branches, use your imagination instead of crying and feeling bad for yourself

Me? I wasn't talking about me, I just see a lot of people in pain throughout the world that aren't as fortunate. And no, its not a physical problem. Its a mental problem that some people are born with. It is hereditary and nor everyone can control it. Words are mental bombs to some people. Just because some people can shrug off insults, doesn't mean everyone can. Go get your fucking insensitive ass off the internet and go get some counciling before you start saying that everyone can control the way they think.

Okay, sorry for thinking you were talking about you nut yes they can. It's basically the same thing as controlling temptation. Just ignore it, don't care about it. I honestly have no self respect for people that cut themselves. I know that depression is a disorder but if it's bad enough that you cause yourself pain then you should get help. There's such a thing as anti depressants.

They can, but a part of the mental problem is that they don't think anyone cares about them or cares about their problems. They think that they are a burden to the world and don't want to bother people with their annoyance. In reality, everyone is a blessing. I'm not promoting to do nothing about depression, but not everyone thinks they can fight it and they give up. It's the truth of the matter.

@Geoff That's still no reason to kill yourself

Obviously for jerks like you, you won't be able to process it through your tiny brain unless it actually happens to you.

@Sky198 Obviously for jerks like you, you won't be able to process it through your tiny brain unless it actually happens to you.

My tiny brain? I'm in the gifted group at my school. Also, you're right, I can't, but I have had friends that told me their experiences

I think it's one of those things that's really hard to understand unless you've been there yourself. But when someone is feeling suicidal they have a psycological problem that needs therapy and usually medication. It dosn't work just telling them to make themselves feel better because they can't, their brain isn't producing enough serotonin.

suicide happens when your resources for coping with pain are less than the pain you are feeling

i think it's one of those things that you have to have gone through to understand. like i don't get abusive relationships, i don't see why they don't just walk away. but i've never been in one and i hope to god to never be in one so i don't understand. where on the other hand i have been suicidal so i know it's not just you going this is stupid i' m going to be happy. it doesn't work like that. you know it's stupid to feel like dying but you can't help it and that just makes you feel worse. it's one of those you have ot of been through it things.

Well, i've been there and almost did that, with family problems, troubles with someone i loved and just being lonely all the time made me suicidal.
Everyone around me made sure i wasn't happy, they all made sure that i was locked away from making friends.
With a recent heartbreak it just made it all worse for me, i always hid my feelings away from my family because i wanted them to think i was strong and that i could prove them wrong and show them that i'm actually worth something...but i failed that, i failed all my exams in school (mostly because of the heartbreak, but bullying was a problem too) and after 2 months of getting employed, i became extremely stressed and i was crying at every chance i got when i was alone.
Its took about 3 years and i think i'm getting better, i still have suicidal thoughts, but i'm better than i was, and its all to my boyfriend (my bestest friend), he makes me feel like i'm actually worth something :)
So yes it does get better, it just takes time.

Because we all know you can just magically change people's opinions without changing ourselves into the stereotypical person. I mean, isn't it so easy?

That's a good point. Next time I'm getting bullied and abused I'll just ask them to stop. Thankyou for your advice

Anonymous +5Reply

it's really not that easy...this is one of those easier said than one things...think of depression as the "lack of will"
as someone who has depression and add and stuff, i know i "can" change i just have to be happy and look at the positive and eat better and excercise but i can't, not because im weak but because i can't - and that's honestly not an excuse. would you tell someone who is crippled "all you have to do is stand up and walk?...just make your legs work again"? no, you wouldn't. im not saying its impossible to overcome depression, but its much more complex than you make it sound.

People don't walk away from abusive relationships for reasons some people just can't understand.

How about let these pussies commit suicide and let natural selection do its thing. If you don't value your life enough as to kill yourself over a bully, then you don't deserve life at all. I'm sure that aborted baby or that kid with down syndrome, or the starving child would happily switch spots with you. Fucking pathetic.

@LAKERSoverHEAT How about let these pussies commit suicide and let natural selection do its thing. If you don't value your life...

How about let these morons make stupid comments and let amirite do its thing. If you don't value your intelligence enough as to make idiotic comments, then you don't deserve amirite at all. I'm sure that kid that can't afford internet or someone whose just plain old not an asshole would happily switch spots with you. Fucking pathetic.

Way to not make any point at all, dumbass. I'm right so you just switch up my wording instead of thinking of a good point to retort with. I'm wondering if you are really this stupid or just a troll.

Why is everybody bashing the OP for his opinion? Maybe getting out of depression is not as easy as the OP makes it out to be, but preventing yourself from ever falling into depression is as simple as not being stupid enough to think you're worthless. Get up off your fucking ass and do something about your life if you're displeased with it. Once you fall into depression, it's all downhill from there; you're trapped in a cycle. But if you avoid the thing all together, then it wouldn't be a problem.

"Avoid Depression"!? Are you even aware what Clinical Depression is? Its not something you can avoid. I have to agree with the Person above me, You Are An Idiot.

@Moonfang66 "Avoid Depression"!? Are you even aware what Clinical Depression is? Its not something you can avoid. I have to...

Yeah, actually, I am fully aware of what clinical depression is. You aren't simply born with depression. Events in your life have an effect on the way you think, behave, etc. The stressful or traumatizing events can lead to depression, but one single event will not toss you into clinical depression, unless it was critically serious (and it is actually rather unlikely that the average person will experience these kinds of events). It's the onslaught of symptoms that just toss you into a cycle, which leads to depression. Just deal with the individual problems one at a time, as soon as those problems appear; don't let them drag on and develop into something more.

@Friday_Night_Lights Why is everybody bashing the OP for his opinion? Maybe getting out of depression is not as easy as the OP makes it...

Oh my, you ARE an idiot. "Just avoid depression. Its simple, just don't think that you're worthless in the first place because thats a stupid thing to think." OH BROTHER.

@Geoff Seriously? It is easy, many people do it each day.

Many people avoid beginning a depression every day? I'm not talking about the average person, I'm talking about someone who actually has serious problems in their life like being bullied. I'm not saying that everyone thinks they're worthless and is in a depression.

@yaybubbles Many people avoid beginning a depression every day? I'm not talking about the average person, I'm talking about...

I'm speaking from experience on being on both sides of bullying, it isn't extremely easy, but it is do-able. You just have to give yourself a goal, something to work for that makes you happy.

Serious issues? Tell a fucking teacher if it bothers you that much. If a teacher won't help, tell a professional. Unless you're living in a straight up ghetto where there is absolutely no way for you to get help, then fucking do something. It's not hard. I've been bullied and I got the fuck over it, so should everybody else. There are so many things you can do to escape a situation, you just gotta grow some jimmys down there.

(Friday_Night_Lights:) Guess what? My brother got bullied and ended up killing himself. The teachers didn't do shit, and then everyone just called him a snitch and it got a hundred times worse. And the professionals he talked to said he was perfectly fine and definitely wasn't a danger to himself or anyone else. One day he just snapped and could't take it. Its not like he could just make a deicision to "get the fuck over it". Your comment is really offensive and your a fucking idiot. Go have a loved one kill themself because of bullying and then you can talk to me about how "easy it was" for them to just get help.
