    this whole summer i've been alone dreaming of my better days, but after a while its gotten to the point where moaning and crying for a better life is for the weak, you need to make your life 1 step at a time and learn to love yourself.

    ive been thinking suicide is pointless to the point that its pathetic, its running away from my problems. you can't expect someone to always pick you up when you fall. and when you do fall it only makes u stronger and stranger than before but in a good way. maybe im more fortunate than others here but i used to feel so hollow inside and i gave up on myself cuz of a girl but now... i feel as i dont need anyones sympathy, emotions just make us humans weaker as we get tied up and lose the bond to whats really important.

    i have been reading posts from this forum and i just realize how simple minded the people that makes posts are, maybe im just more fortunate but it seems like people here don't give a chance and just come here to moan about their pathetic lives when they can be out there doing something for themselves. fuck what anyone thinks just do it.

    the movie 'Wanted' (which came out in theatres this year) has really inspired me just because of the one line and the main character in the movie says, "This is me taking back control of my life. What the fuck have you done lately?" it really caught me even though its really unrealistic it just shows anything is possible.

    so now all i can ask to the people of this forum is

    in reality... What the fuck have you done lately?

    glad you're finding your way to happiness but did you have to shit on everyone else here to do it?

    What is that exactly? A career? Have fun with your emotionless career, then, or whatever else emotionless you were referring to.

    Hi Angelo. I'm happy to hear that you're doing better and enjoying your life, and that you think suicide is pointless, but I don't think you should refer to the suicidal people on this forum as pathetic. People might be offended by this.

    Running away from your problems is human nature. People have emotions and feel, you can't just declare your emotions gone and they go away and your life is happy.

    To refer to the people who post on this site as "simple minded" is insulting and a generalization. Making broad generalizations about the people who post on this site doesn't help anyone. Dealing with personal problems is not so 'black and white' as you put it and not so easy to deal with.

    Might? More like for sure :sad:

    I don't think you're being very considerate calling people pathetic, you can't physically get out there and do anything about it when you're suffering from clinical depression. Clearly you don't know just how the people here are feeling if you can talk about them like that. I'm glad you've found happiness, but that's no reason (excuse my rudeness) to act like a prick towards others. Please be a little more considerate...

    Telling people who are suffering and emotional that they are simpletons who moan over their pathetic lives are going to invalidate them more.
    Im not offended by the way, Im secure about the mental illnesses I suffer and the way I respond to it being valid.

    For me, I've registered at uni, been to Berlin on a language course, and relaxed.
    As has been said, calling folks here ''simple minded'', is a rather insensitive thing to do. As Leastofthese said - problems of any kind, let alone mental problems, are not black and white.

    *throws the question back at you*

    I glad for you that you are doing better but maybe you should think before you insult people who are suicidal. Nobody chooses to be suicidal and people try and cope with it the best they can

    say! let's pin a rose on your ASS and call you perfect :)

    actually you sound pretty much like a sanctimonious judgemental
    douch bag. but, that's just my personal opinion, so there's no need
    to take it 'personal' like, it doesn't have to be YOUR opinion that
    you are a douchbag. in fact, it sounds as if you haven't got the
    slightest idea how MUCH of a preachy douchbag you are. but, be
    all that as it may, have a special day :)

    and thanks...for the intuative pep talk there, what's your face.

    Remember that the purpose of this site is to support each other, not call each other names and belittle peoples feelings. It is great that you as the op are feeling much better and were inspired by something. Not everyone has been so lucky. Things happen beyond our control and it may not be a matter of simply taking control. Maybe show some compassion for those that are currently where you have been and have the hope that they too can find their way out.
    You asked what people have done? Well I work full time, raise 4 children that are very active in school activities. I volunteer time at a local nursing home. I am a volunteer EMT for our town ambulance service. I teach private music lessons. Help out with concessions at sporting events. Assist with the after school gifted and talented program, and that is the beginning. I would say I have plenty to do and that does not stop me from being depressed or suicidal.

    You know maybe you are more fortunate....to survive without emotional integrity which you seem to be doing to yourself can be the easiest way to a pain free life for you...As for calling people here simple minded I would caution you that you are being more than offensive. FACT - Depression sufferers tend to be in a higher IQ quartile than none depression sufferers. FACT - Depression can happen to anyone, from any walk of life. FACT - Depression is not limited to situational incidences such as your own, you need to consider those born with mental issues such as Bi-polar, Schizophrenia, H.S.P and other ailments. Or how about the individuals who have gone through situations that are so life shattering that you cant see past it, such as abuse, rape, bullying, loss of a loved one.

    But do you know what pisses me off more about your limited thought on your post, the fact that you see this as an intelligent break through. I am glad that the light is shining nice and bright for you, but instead of using it to show you where to throw rocks at others help them see the light without them dodging your self absorbed, impetuous and plain stupid thought "bullets". Start giving a shit about your fellow human beings and one day you might be able to join them as one, instead of your want to be lifeless robot you wish to be.

    I know what the FUCK you did recently, you pissed off a lot of good people.

    *P.S just pretty angry about this post, do not wish to cause offense to those intending good will.

    EDIT: I suck at forums.

    But yeah, the original poster does come off as pretty disparaging. Get off your high horse. If there's anything to learn about high horses, it's that they all have to get put down sooner or later. Be a little more humble and it will benefit you greatly in the long run.

    Not everybody is at the mindset of "suicide=pathetic" and some people will never reach that conclusion. Hopefully they'll realize, "hey, I was suicidal once. It wasn't pathetic but it was an accurate reflection of how I felt at that stage in my life. Thank goodness I found a better solution." In fact, I hope that they reach this stage of realization, because maybe then there will be better help available for all.

    what's his face:

    this whole summer i've been alone dreaming of my better days, but after a while its gotten to the point where moaning and crying for a better life is for the weak, you need to make your life 1 step at a time and learn to love yourself.
    --------------------------------------------------------------


    you:

    Fair enough. You do have to take things one step at a time, and learn to love yourself. But it is fucking HARD to do that when you think you are the worst person on this planet and hate yourself to the core. That's rather stupid, you saying that, on a Suicide Forum.
    --------------------------------------------------------------

    what's his face again, hereafter referred to as WHF:

    ive been thinking suicide is pointless to the point that its pathetic, its running away from my problems. you can't expect someone to always pick you up when you fall.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------


    You:
    You can't always expect people to pick you up when you fall. A number of people on here have nowhere to turn to, which is why they turn to here. So you denouncing their feelings as "simple" and "pathetic" and "pointless" is a rather obnoxious, small minded, arsehole winded way of thinking things through.
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------

    WHF:
    I have been reading posts from this forum and i just realize how simple minded the people that makes posts are, maybe im just more fortunate,
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    You:

    yeah, more than likely, love ( NICE SHOT BY THE WAY)
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    WHF:
    but it seems like people here don't give a chance and just come here to moan about their pathetic lives when they can be out there doing something for themselves. fuck what anyone thinks just do it.
    ----------------------------------------------------------
    you:
    Er.. what the fuck? Why can't we moan about our "Pathetic Lives?" That's all we've heard you doing, so why the heck can't we? That's what this forum is for.
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    WHF ad nauseum hereafter referred to as WHFAN:

    the movie 'Wanted' (which came out in theatres this year) has really inspired me just because of the one line and the main character in the movie says, "This is me taking back control of my life.

    in reality. What the fuck have you done lately?
    -----------------------------------------

    You:

    Oh! Bless. Inspired by a movie. Nice one.
    What the fuck have I done lately? I've helped out a friend, been under a lot of stress, ignored by my fathers arsehole side of the family, got drunk, did stupid things, and now wasted my time reading bullshit like this.
    What the fuck have you done lately other than post a nasty pointless post denouncing every member on here and their feelings? Oh, and you watched a movie. Good on you, son.

    ---------------------------------------------------------------
    OUTSTANDING POST!!

    thankyou!

    If thats what you think then your entitled to your own opinions but if you can say that then i can say that your an absolute twat. If thats what you think then what the hell are you doing here posting it on a website for SUICIDAL PEOPLE. God! i find it so offensive... i dont appreciate you calling me simple minded or pathetic for wanting to commit suicide. Your really just offending people and nobody wants that here if you want to write that then go write it somewhere AWAY FROM THE SUICIDAL PEOPLE cos its not fair. Horrid really. Excuse me if that was very rude of me but you made me SO ANGRY
