I'm going to be blunt here... a friend of mine has often expressed suicidal feeling, but only ever to one person. Not me, but someone else close to them. I have recently been told by my friend, however I have known for a while because the person close to them always tells me, and I always do what I can to help. My friend has recently expressed to me how they wish the other person didn't "overreact" because "[they] should know by now that a) [my friend's] too scared to hurt [themself] and b) that [my friend] always overreact to everything anyway." So I keep telling myself these two things that my friend has said about themself when my friend has these thoughts... but in the back of my mind I know my friend needs help, my friend just can't seek it because of circumstances beyond my friend's control. The thoughts don't occur often and when they do happen, it is usually only a short burst that quickly dissipates into feelings of disgust for have ever thought that... If my post is confusing, please ask me to elaborate. I tried to omit pronouns on purpose to remain as anonymous as possible. And the reason it is in this subforum is because my friend is having suicidal thoughts again. I just don't know what I can do.
