I'm asking for help to be more open minded and supportive of a friend of mine. My friend has recently become suicidal, and not for the first time. I am supportive of her, and try to help and make her feel better when I can, but part of me thinks that she is weak, and should be able to get past this. I was suicidal many years ago, although not as depressed as she is, and have managed to get past it. I think this is part of the reason that I think she should be able to get better too. I realize this is irrational and at best, completely unhelpful, at worst judgmental, mean, hurtful, and stupid. I feel like I've lost some respect for her because of this, and I hate feeling like that. Can anyone help explain how they lost their prejudices about people that were suicidal, or direct me to resources that can? Rationally I know that when someone is depressed and suicidal they don't see the world in the same way, and it's not fair for me to expect them too, that they're still people, just going through a dark time, and need our love and compassion. So how do I get rid of these unwanted feelings of judgment?
