For anyone suicidal it is always good to have friends and family there to be supportive and understanding, but I also think there is some friends you should simply cut off contact with. After much deliberation I decided to cut off one of my longest time friends and only source of any sort of social life. I would hang out with him and his friends often, but after distancing myself from this friend I pretty much have no social life whatsoever. The reason I cut off this friendship is due to his stance on suicidal people. He says he has no sympathy for people who take their own lives, and considers them weak. He thinks that these people don't deserves to be honored or have a funeral if they take their own life. I don't need friends like that, rather have no friends like I do than one that thinks I'm worthless. He has no clue that I'm suicidal, but knows I'm depressed. He thinks I have no reason to be depressed and that I should simply snap out of it. He obviously has no idea what it is like to be depressed and suicidal.
