    I care. I can only continue to exist if I know there are people who are the least bit like me. Why are you feeling blue specifically.

    I really do care. And more importantly I get what feeling down is about for people like us.

    Man I need confirmation as to what I feel. I can only get that through you. More importantly we can help eachother. Have you seen the new Charlie Kaufman movie? It's the saddest movie I've seen in years. Only a suicidal person gets that. I don't mean to pressure you, but my life is in you hands.

    First, you have to learn to love yourself and care about yourself. You are important! Just as anyone else is. Ppl on here do care and i know it seems so impersonal but we get to know each other's hearts and that counts for alot sometimes. Do you have friends or family? Please feel free to pm me anytime, it's always open!

    Hey whybother,
    I know we don't know each other, but I have learned there are some really great people here on the forum who speak from the heart. In the outside world I don't speak to anyone but my therapist. I have socialphobia and am afraid to open up to anyone. My brother and sister try to get me to talk but I just sit there looking stupid.
    The people I have made friends with here are genuine. I talk alot here because I don't on the outside. Sometimes I think I talk to much! If you want others to care then you need to open up and talk about your problems even if you only PM someone and talk to them one on one. Take Care!~Joseph~

    Hey, have you tried explaining things to your dad? I know what its like when people just keep pushing and pushing you when you're already down. It gets way too hard to cope with. Do you have a therapist? :arms:

    In a way.. some of our pains come from unnatural advancement of technology.
    For example, we worry about not keeping up with some new-iPod or something or other. Bad example. But while things such as the social world can rise above us.. so will the demand for online connection. The more souls needing to find solace, the more will find it in good places like this. I think a site can be personal in this day and age.

    Consider this. Its been stopping me for about 2 weeks, and it seems to be working. Do you believe in an afterlife? Really think about it. If you do, I can say that suicide seems more appealing because "Hell, I'm tired of living on this planet that I hate so much", maybe I can go to Heaven/Hell, Nirvana, get reincarnated as something different, so I do not have to live like this anymore. Thats one way to look at it.

    The other way makes a lot more sense to me. What if there is nothing else and this is all we get? We get this stream of consciousness and then at the end it stops. Its over. You do not think, feel, or see anything. Everything that is your existence is over with. You're gone and that's it. And you sure you want to end your life that way? Hanging at the end of a rope? With a gun in your mouth? Knowing that you're thoughts, and your potential for happiness stops. A lot of people think suicide will make them happy or that killing themselves will finally make themselves happy. That's not true. When you die. You don't get to feel anything. Happy, sad, annoyed, complacent, tired, etc. You're emotions are all gone and so are you.

    Don't kill yourself. It won't make you happy.
