Anywho. Serious part ahead, so sut the fuck up and pay attention.

If you, or anyone else you know, is committing suicide, you need to know this. They are not weak. They are doing the hardest thing they have ever had to do. Facing mortality, owning it, and knowing this is the choice they are making - that is not something most people have to do. Killing yourself is one of the strongest acts a person can do, not weakest. It is the final powerful decision, and there is absolutely no shame at all for taking that course.
The absolute last thing that anyone in that situation needs to hear is that they are a failure for ending things. That they are 'taking the easy way out'. If a person decides to die, you might not like it, but don't you DARE shame them for it. You don't know how they feel. You don't know what they wake up to every day in their minds and fear.
Listen to me. If you are going to kill yourself, I support your choice. I wish you wouldn't, but I cannot promise it will get better. In the vast majority of cases it does get better (statistically), but for some it doesn't. IF you leave this world behind, that will make me very sad, but you don't need to carry any else's shame with you. Because it is not a shameful act. Contemplating it is not shameful.
Hopefully you will find the strength to keep on with us. Hopefully a year from now you will send me a message on the forum and tell me that you owe me a slurpee for getting you through another year. And if not, then I will hold my face to the sun and live my life for you as best I can.

Your comment is really good, thought about publishing it elsewhere? Can I quote it?

@MelibaRayna: You may absolutely publish, repost, reblog, and whatever else you may want to do with any of my content. I only write it in the hopes that it will save a few people from ending up like me.

All I ask is that you make sure that people know the context. I do not advocate suicide. But I do advocate that people do not make others feel worse about it. Someone who is truly suicidal may understand how strong they are and choose to fight on from reading this, and that is the message I want to send.
