What makes you feel like there's no other option than suicide? Is your mind clouded by intense pressure? Or are you thinking rationally? Have you truly considered all the available options? Or are the options left on the table not achievable? Or you simply don't care for them and you've had enough. People who try to help suicidal people tend to give general advices. You broke up? Just find someone else. You lost your job? Find another. But the problem is that things aren't always in black and white, but rather shades of greys. It's rarely one thing alone that will push someone over the edge, but a cumulative of many things mixed together that produce such a deadly result. What one person might find so easy to overcome might be near impossible for another. That is why i get very angry when someone who doesn't know me at all think they have the miracle solution right out of the blue. Probably why i never truly bother writing down my issues on SF. Because the answers become redundant. --------------------------------------------------------------- As for me, why i feel like there's no other option is because i've exhausted all the strength i ever managed to conjure to fight this illness. Since the 16 years of age i've been enduring this curse. I'm now 30. I don't have what it takes to undo my mistakes. Nor the time nor the will. My parents are old. I don't know how long they will be there to care for me. But i know it isnt long. Facing the fact that they might be gone soon serves only to amplify my pain. I will be alone. My sister can't take care of me. She has a family and 3 children. Also the fact that i've been nothing but trouble for my family doesn't help. I've been but a dissapointment back to back. And i feel the guilt greatly. The girl i ever loved left me because i was a failure. Both as a friend and as a partner. I'm a failure on all account. I'm so tired of life, my life. It hurts to live, if you can even call it that. I'm but an empty shell. Joyless, loveless there's nothing but pain. I have enough pain for 10 lives. To answer to my own question. Yes, there's other option than suicide. To suffer till life itself grant me relief.
