8 thoughts on “Suicide vs. Suicidal

    Very well said, and I hope it reaches those who need to read it most. At times I’ve been so low that I was consumed with how to carry out my own “escape plan”. The people closest to me, the ones who I really needed and who were capable of helping me? I’ve watched them respond by creating distance (less uncomfortable for them to stick their head in the ground then “deal” with me) or act irritated (as though I was on a quest for attention that they were very tired of and disinterested in). All I ever needed at those time was a friend who would just give me a hug, and just tell me everything was gonna be ok (and that even if it wasn’t, they’d be right beside me because I’m worth walking beside – even if the going gets rough.)

      I know exactly where you are coming from, and just think they don’t know what to say and would rather have the doc handle it. For me, I felt they grew tired of my depression woes and well, the suicide I hesitated to talk about. When I did attempt the first time I was called selfish, and told “you have such a good husband, he’s always there for you”. These people weren’t relieved I survived the suicide, they were blasting me for being selfish, and strangely enough they weren’t supportive before or after. Attention people: Keep your trap shut with your opinions, they aren’t wanted
      Thanks so much for commenting. 🙂

    So, so true. My mother committed suicide over 20 years ago. Her church told her she was demonically possessed. They didn’t support her in her time of need, but they opened wide the doors for her funeral….. suddenly they were mourning her, not judging her.
