Am I being selfish?

Not open for further replies.
Everyday I wake up and I think to myself, today is the day. I'm leaving this cruel world and there is no one going to stop me, I'm so determined but then I think about my younger brother and sister and it hits me. I'm so selfish and what I plan to do is something that could stick with them for the rest of their lives.

This keeps me up at night, I cry just thinking about it.

I love them so much, they will never understand how much I love them and want them to be happy and safe, but I can't do it, I can't be their "superwoman" and there will be days where things go wrong, I don't want them to go through it alone, I mean my parents, they're there but sometimes there a problems a parent can't understand or fix.

I'm so confused.
hey there!

the love that you feel for your brother and sister is a wonderful thing and I think that it could serve as a good motivator to help you try to get better.

do you want to talk about any treatment/ therapy that you've tried? we might be able to give you some suggestions if you've tried some things that haven't worked.

do you feel like you are getting any support from your parents? have you told your brother and sister about how you feel?

I hope that you are able to get through this!!!
