Is Suicide A Cry For Help or A Way To Escape The Situation?

February 13, 2009 11:47am CST
I have a friend who has two suicide attempts on her shoulders. Both were not to kid around with since it could have cost the persons life. Lucky and alive:-) So as i have dived more and more into the sea of depression knowledge it seem like all the suicide attempts seem like an escape from the terrible situation the mind goes through. That takes me back to earlier in life where i have had some people around me taking their life. It all comes back to the question. Did they really want to take their life? IMPORTANT NOTICE! Now, i am not a specialist in psychology neither do i have a degree rather then child psychology as main child psychology focused on 0 - 16 years old. So the answers here are not the right answer or what you should base your believes upon. Do you feel depressed, take contact with professionals so you could get the help needed.

I think your advice is really wise. People who are even contemplating or pondering on the idea should talk iwth a trusted person or with a professional. I believe that all problems can be dealt with and that life is worth living

Yes, you're right. It is something that can be treated and will naturally go over in the time. We have medicines & we know more and more about treating these illness. It's like treating a flue these days. Many people get depressed and it will become more and more.

Well even i was same, but later i realised crying over problems is not going to make any change. Rather, i decided to fight against problems and now i feel great.
