Oh me, i did feel like to, but never dared to try it. Whenever problems cover me, and im deeply immersed seeking no way out, i do feel like to end thius life and just be at peace, just that thought, of course eventually things turn out for some way, or just remain that way. At times, when i felt i was horribily in love and he cheated on me, i just thought about it. Did you ever feel like to give up ur life? just thoughts? i mean not those deep dark emotions that really make you do what you want, but just for the moment, why should i live like this? just that thought for a second? did you ever feel that when in troubles?

Yes I have felt like that a couple of times in my life, though as I've got older I've learned to cope with the dark emotions and the problems better. Each time it happened, I felt like the best part of my life was over - so why carry on living - but with hindsight, I went on (both times) to live the best part of my life after the pain was over and things improved. If ever I get really down now, I just hold that in my head......life DID get better, twice, and there's every chance it will again.

Thanks for your response too.....also I think as we grow older, we realise how short life actually is and even if we do feel like dying, we know that it's going to happen all too soon, so why accelerate the process? Have a good day!!!!!!! :-)

I always say my 1 cents worth on this to my kids and to my friends who,once in awhile have similar thots like this:: thoughts like that, once they are entertained by the mind will always make way for another visit one day. Thats why i never entertain these kinds of thoughts. these are negative thots that need to be flushed out of the mind.. Our brain has very strong signals and it is a very powerful part of our body. remember, whatever the mind can conceive, it can achieve..And this applies to either negative or positive thought. Which goes to say, it is better to think on the brighter side and the more positive side of things so that it will multiply!:))) Take things eazzzy...Take a cold shower, smile in the mirror, take time to laugh each day even if its difficult to do so(you'll find out how much you'll feel better after..u release certain hormones when u laugh that heals some of the hurt that u feel) and go out..everything at the right time,will always work out and fall into place.:)))

I did, especially when I felt I never tried hard enough to be better in life. I looked at myself, and say, I disappointed my parents by not having even better results. I blamed myself for not being successful enough. I dunno man, there's so many reasons that I pushed myself so hard for, that I don't wanna continue living.

Nope I have never felt like ending my life. Ending your life is not the solution but we need to face it bravely and things gets better after sometimes.

Agreed, dark clouds do pass or at least rain upon us, and they do clear at some point.

many bad things happened in my life and there were times that it indeed crossed my mind..I tried to do it once when I was in high school, you know, young and stupid..And the second one was when I found out that my ex-boyfriend was cheating on me, on my face and didn't even tried to hide it. I was pregnant with his child at that time and I was really devastated..I wanted to end my life but then I would be ending another life inside me..It took a lot of control and I was really wasted.But at least I didn't do it..

Yeah ur timely awareness did save 2 lives, and also its just so not necessary to end up our lives on such people who dont deserve us. But i do know how it feels when ur pregnant and a simple thing and hurt and makes u go crazy...

to be honest, i never think of killing myself before... so far, God has been so good to me... i have ups and downs in my life but i have hope in Him... so no matter what happened, i can't kill myself... He is my Creator and He is the one who has the right to take my life... that's my opinion... take care and have a nice day...

I never dare to try it though i also feel like to do it when i face distressing things.It is very strange that i often think about a lot of things which i love deep into my heart in the world when i have no appetite to live any longer ,for example: the sweet sunshine,my parents,especially my baby...Maybe there are just about so many things which we care,we don't do that thing though we also want to do sometime.Maybe we will do it when we have no expects and worries someday,maybe...

Whenever there is frustrations, failures and I get depressed with life, the thought of ending up my life starts to kick in. I sometimes felt like trying to, but I always back up as I get scared of the thought of it. My family always comes to my mind, or maybe I just wasn't that brave it enough. I don't really know, I always get mixed emotions every time I am in that situation.

Even I sometimes feel that why to live like this but at very next moment my mind reminds me of those people who love me , who care for me and I have to live for them. My parents , my friends etc. There are so many people in this world who like you its just that you never notice. Your mind is stuck to only that person whom you like and when you come to a conclusion that the person you like doesnt really likes you or dislikes you , you get irrirated and think of dying and all. Well thats life and we have to live with it. It will show us many turns we just have to move on for them who love us , for them who care for us.

Hi keep_onwatch, Many years ago I went through a depression, and the thought did come in my mind. I don't believe I ever seriously considered it. I don't believe that its the way to go, and it's very difficult for those left behind. Everyone has problems in their life, granted some more than others, but I think we should learn from them and move on. I know that this may not be easy, but hopefully we all have at least one person that we can turn to at such times. I will however, never judge another as I cannot feel as he/she does at the time. Blessings.

I think at one time or another the thought pops into most ppl's mind, we just have to remember that time will pass and life does get better so to quickly replace those negative thoughts with positive ones or it will over power one. What our mind thinks our body's achieves. I remember a dark time in my life that I just asked to lord to take me, then all of sudden the thoughts of my children flooded my mind and all I could think of was who would be there for them so there was no way I could leave this world yet.

Yeah exactly, our children give this meaning to our life....

I have. I chickened out and got to the hospital in time. Do I regret it - No. Friends and family know and have done nothing to be supportive. I wish I was brave enough to have gone through with it. I still have those thoughts and I'm not totally sure I wouldn't do it again but this time succeed. I have a couple of hateful friends in my life that I can't get away from. They are rude to me, lie about me and over all disrespect me. I know get rid of them. I wish I could but the timing is wrong. Maybe soon...just maybe.

Yes I did have thin kind of thought before. At that time, my parents' relationship is really in tension. I was the one in between, trying to solve that. Somehow I am sick of it. They argue a lot, even when we were still little girls. I think I just would like to give up myself to give them a lesson. To send my message across. Maybe till then, they will understand how we feel. But of course I dared not to do that. That's the first and the only time I had this kind of thought.

Last year, I had just come home from my cousin's house as my summer vacations were comin 2 an end.. I really missed them and I couldn't adjust to the old, regular, monotonous routine.. I felt so lonely as it was a massive get-together over there.. That was the time I felt like ending my life .. After that whenever I think of it, I laugh at myself and think how silly I had been !!
• India
16 May 08
Yeah sure enough, but hey loneliness is the most horrible stage of life....i have to agree on that one...

Yes I did once.. and I popped so many pills within a day, and I would be so sleepy by noon, that I would sleep my sadness away. I'm glad that that phrase of my life has been long over, and I never have to face it again, though the pills did make me hallucinate a little!
• India
15 May 08
Hallucinate? that must b an xperience, but im glad its over and you feel better. These thoughts do overcome us, but doing th eright thing is always the best thing, loving life and living for those who love us.

No, I never feel like that way.In fact,why should I feel like that way??? I will live for those,who care for me,loves me,if not for myself.Whenever I have some problems,I discussed about it with my family,they provide me with all support.
• India
15 May 08
Yeah a supportive family is very important and im glad even me too have a very supporting family, but some things cant b shared with family, especially when you did something wrong and that guilt is killing you...
