I a saw picture online of a man standing outside of his house, which is next to a cliff. There's a few words underneath the picture that tells the man has prevented some people from communicating suicide by inviting them into his house for tea and talking them out of it. Someone commented saying; "If somebody was really set on taking the 'leap of faith', and had no desire or intention to be observed, prevented or dissuaded, they wouldn't choose a spot near somebody's house, would they? Just attention seeker/'cry for help'-ers, not the real deal, I'm afraid." I commented to them; "Are you serious? "Attention seeker/cry for help-ers" I don't think anyone deserves to be labelled as such! And to say they're not the real deal, wow!" Their response back to me; "'Deserves' is a judgemental word in itself, implying that an honest description assigns more or less value to a person and/or what they do. Psychiatrists delineate suicidal behaviour into 'suicide' and 'attempted suicide', not on outcome - suicide sometimes 'fails', for unforeseen reasons or through lack of expertise, whereas attempted suicide is usually a gamble and can 'succeed' - but on intent. Obviously, individuals' motives are complex, and somewhat different in every case, but what many people 'really' want is an indication that somebody - even a stranger, or 'God' - cares whether they live or die. Might as well call a shovel a spade, imo." Now, I am trying to think of a response. I'm not good at confrontation, but I think the person is an idiot... I feel they shouldn't have said 'attention seeker/cry for helpers' and 'they're not the real deal'.
