    I once told someone important to me that I wanted to kill myself (plan and everything) and the reasons why. They convinced me to stay for them (as it would upset them) but as time wore on they left telling me I was a useless burden and wasn't worth it. How do I build positivity in this loss?

    Welcome to the forum. :) I can't give you the right answer but I do think you have to remember the things that you like to do, let yourself feel the reasons you are here for yourself, no one else, and then seek true support and help. I'm sorry you lost this person - but you don't need them to live. You are worth every breath. We are here to offer support and listen if you need to talk. I'm open to PMs as well. Take care of yourself and stay safe please.

    I am glad that you are still here. Sorry to hear that the person who kept you going has now abandoned you. But you do not need them.

    Loss? What loss? You dont need anyone who thinks you are a useless burden who isn't worth it, in your life, now, or ever. The only loss here is theirs.

    I am also glad you are still here, you found this forum, you are engaging with us already and hopefully, once you get to know a few people, you will this place to be a tremendous place where you get all the help and support you need.

    I agree with Sinister Kid Mermaid; they are not true friends

    Chat with us here on SF; I am sure I can talk for most people on here; we're prepared to be genuine friends of yours :) (as much as you can be online)
