Please Help Me

Posted by | July 27, 2014 | Suicide | One Comment

I’m having suicidal thoughts. I want to talk to somebody but don’t want to call a hotline or anything because I’m afraid of my parents finding out. I think they will make me go to a counselor or something if they do. I’m having suicidal thoughts because my grades are very low and my parents act like they are proud of my brothers and sisters but they don’t act like they are proud of me. I understand that they don’t really have a reason to be proud of me with my grades being so bad but it’s too obvious not to notice. I’m afraid that if I did commit suicide it would put one of my family members in depression leading to them killing themselves. Which is holding me back from committing it. Please help me.

    We are so glad that you were able to find the courage to reach out and talk about how you are feeling suicidal right now. It can be hard to go through this alone and if you ever need support, the counselors will always be here to support you.

    Many people experience suicidal thoughts from time to time and that’s okay, but what you do with those thoughts differentiates you. Humans often go to a dark and sad place when things get tough, but you can always pull yourself out of the darkness with a little effort on changing your thought habits and reaching out for support.

    Counseling would be a great thing for you if you are having suicidal thoughts. Many people go to counseling and it’s something that helps you get through a hard time in your life. It doesn’t have to be forever and it doesn’t label or define you in any negative way.

    If you aren’t ready to start counseling, you can always reach out to the counselors here! A counselor may ask to talk to a parent if you cannot keep yourself safe for the night, but other than that they will not inform your parents of your calls.

    Also check out the website for great tips on how to manage depression, anxiety, relationship, and many other things such how to use coping skills. The counselors here are always willing to support you! Reach out anytime you need to talk!
