What is the best way to kill yourself when you're under 13?
Quelle est la meilleure forme de suicide pour les moins de 13 ans?
|04 Mar 2008||Al||Hi Matty,
I'm very sorry to hear about your grandma's passing. I lost my grandfather last year; it is hard. Suicide is not the answer though, honoring their memory by living a great life is the answer. If she could talk to you now, you know she'd be upset at you for even thinking of hurting yourself, she would want you to go on and live a great life. Honor her best wishes for you. I'd love to talk, please email me anytime.
|04 Mar 2008||Al||Hi Kristina,
I'm real sorry to hear about things with you and your mom. That is very rough. There is an answer, however suicide is not it. Please email me, I'd love to talk more.
|03 Mar 2008||Al||Dear "F... u all" (posted on 2/2),
It sounds like you've been going through a whole lot. I'd love to talk, and try and offer you some support and encouragement. You have value. You matter. Suicide is not the answer. Please email me (and anyone else who'd like to talk).
|03 Mar 2008||Al||Dear "SOON,"
Please don't think about killing yourself. Your siutation is rough and painful. But it's not hopeless. Most people who consider suicide don't actually want to kill themselves, they just want to stop the pain. There are two ways you can lighten the emotional devastation you feel (and live!). 1. Find a way to lessen the pain (find better friends & become a better friend). 2. Learn how to grow your coping ability (realize how special, important, and valuable you truly are).
If you have two faced friends, the best thing you can do is look for better friends. Work on developing those great qaulities in you that make YOU a great friend (kindness, love, gentlesness, thoughtfullness, etc.), and be friendly. No doubt you will make some quality friends in time who will love you for you, and truly be there for you. My teen life was filled with fake, selfish friends. But when I started working on making me a better person, and spending less and less time with them, great new friends came into my life (that I've had for over 10 years--I've even been in thier weddings). And never lose sight of how special you are. You have a purpose for being here on this earth, you are not an accident. There is a lot of good for you to expireince and do on this earth. It's not your time to leave it. I'd love to talk more, please email me.

|03 Mar 2008||Al||GOD EXISTS & HE'S NOT TO BLAME. That sounds like a lie to some of you. I just read MO'S comment and my heart broke for all they've been through. And others like them. But God isn't to blame and denying His existence won't wipe away your pain. He wants you to run to Him for forgivness and comfort and healing.
If God is love why are there so many terrible things happening in this world? You have 3 options.
1. God is dumb. He created it all, but He didn't know what He was doing and doesn't know how to fix it.
2. God is a jerk. He is a cruel dictator, who gets a kick out of watching little kids die of Leukemia.
3. There is something radically wrong between God and man. This is what the Bible teaches.
The Bible says, Through one man sin entered the world, and death through sin, and thus death spread to all men, because all sinned. We were meant to live forever in the Garden of Eden, in perfect health and happiness, but sin ruined everything. As a result, disease, suffering, and death entered the world. But we can't blame God or Adam & Eve; we're the ones who keep our high murder, rape, and crime rates by our choice to keep on sinning. Instead of seeing your suffering as an excuse to reject God, it should be seen as a very real reason to turn to Him. It should remind you that were guilty and desperately need forgiveness.
The Bible can be scientifically proven to be God's word. A study of it's supernatural prophecies proves that. You might appreciate "The Case for Christ" by Lee Strobel or "The New Evidence That Demands a Verdict" by Josh McDowell for tons of more info.
God is very compassionate. Instead of hopelessly sending you to eternal torment without relief in Hell the first time you lied or blasphemed His name He has treated you with love and patience and allowed you time to turn to Him and get right. God loves you. He proved that when He sent His only Son Jesus to die on the cross. Jesus took the punishment for your sins, so they could be forgiven if you'd choose to follow Him. He could have turned His back on you and me, but He didn't. And God sees what you're going through right now and He cares. Please don't let your pain turn into bitterness and reject the only one who's truly always been there for you. You may want to see www.thekristo.com for more.
Please email me, I'd love to talk more. I have a great listening ear, and I care. I know what it's like to be suicidal... and to find hope, and true happiness.

|22 Feb 2008||a friend - email me||If you are considering suicide, please take a few moments to breathe, read this article, sort through your situation prayerfully, and get help. If you know someone who may be at risk, perhaps this article will help you help them.
Here are some facts to help you say NO to suicide and YES to life.
1. There Is Substantial Evidence for the Existence of God
No games here. The bottom line is that the evidence for the existence of God far outweighs the evidence for atheism. If you doubt that statement, just use some common sense.
The universe began to exist. Whatever begins to exist must have a cause that brought it into existence. Moreover, the universe shows indications of fine-tuning and intricate design. That speaks to the strong likelihood of a Designer at work. You have miracles that still happen today. And the supernatural prophecies within the Bible, that give amazing scientific knowledge before we knew anything about sceince, and amazing predictions that have come to pass. And, finally, the presence of human aspiration, conscience, and spiritual awareness all point to something greater than what we simply see, touch, taste, hear, and smell.
These observations (and others) all mean that God is real.
2. Your Value Comes from God
If God is real, then you are here because God created you. That fact determines your purpose for living as well as your worth as an individual.
The Founding Fathers of the United States of America made clear, in the opening paragaphs of the Declaration of Independence, that our "unalienable rights" (including our rights to "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" - the very rights that define our value as human beings) come from the Creator.
That means your value is NOT associated with what other people think of you - even those who may be close to you. Nor does your value come from society. This, of course, doesn't mean that others won't try to diminish you or manipulate your feelings of self-worth. You can, however, rest confident in the "self-evident truth" (to steal a phrase from America's Founders) that your value comes from God. As such, your value is real. No one can steal how important and priceless you are.
3. There Is No "Restart" Button!
Once you take your life, there is no coming back. This is not like a computer you can reboot or a game that you can start over. You have only one life. End it - and you're done. Do not make that choice.
4. Don't Decide Based on Feelings
NEVER let your life be governed by (or ended by) feelings. In fact, you should NEVER make decisions solely based on feelings. Your feelings should follow your decisions - and NOT the other way around.
So, stop, take a breath, count to 1,000 if you have to, but get a firm grip on your feelings. Do that so that you can think clearly about your life and situation. If you are unable to get a handle on your feelings or to get on top of your emotions, then you may be suffering from depression. In that case, see a doctor right away. Get help. And that leads to the final step...
5. Seek Help...NOW
You need to get help...now. If you are considering something as drastic as ending your life, you need to talk to your family, a health professional, a pastor or priest or rabbi, or a counselor. And you need to do these things right away. If you don't have health insurance or can't afford a counselor (and even if you can), consider contacting an area church. Obviously, if you are already in a church, get a hold of your pastor.
Bottom line...Your life is worth living. It's worth protecting. Don't be the one to end it. Get help right away.

|07 Feb 2008||Allen||asdhjkl; [secrative],
It sounds like you've been through a lot at home. If you haven't felt loved, let me tell you that I love you. Not in some crazy stalker way, but in a friend's way. Please know that you have value. You are important. You are special. And you are loved. If no one has told you in a while I think you need to hear those truths. I didn't speak to my father for about 6 years because I hated him so much. I know what it is to feel rejected and hurt and have bad relationships with your parents. But there is Hope. Killing yourself is NOT the answer. You have a purpose for being on earth. You're here for a reason, and you have to live to find that reason. Don't let your hurt cloud your mind. Suicide is not the answer you're looking for. I nearly killed myself, but I didn't and I'm so thrilled now, years later, that I didn't. Please email me. I would really love to talk. My email is: Area51boca@aol.com
PS. I highly recommend you talk with a professional about what you're feeling too. You can call a free crisis hotline anytime @ UK Suicide Crisis Helpline: 08457 909090 (UK) or in the US 1-800-273-TALK (8255) / www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org. They have trained people who can help and it's totally annoymous (it's free, it's open 24/7, and no one knows who you are).

|23 Jan 2008||Carmen||I will not tell you how to kill your self, but i am going to ask you to read what i have to say.
At the age of 17, i tried to commit suicide. My boyfriend left me after 6 years, my father was using heroin, my mother was a self pitying alcoholic, and over time i secluded myself from the world around me. I had no one i could talk to. And the people who said they were there, i didn't believe.
So one night, i went home and filled up my bath tub. Unplugged the phones. Turned off any sort of communication i had to the outside world. I shut my windows, and poured myself a drink. And another and i waited until i was pretty intoxicated and then i went and got a razor from an exact-o knife.
I took all of my clothes off and lay in the bath. Then i slit both of my wrist with a little more then a quarter inch deep cuts, 4 one each side.
I lay bleeding and waiting to die. Until i realized that this wasn't what i wanted, so i lay bleeding to death praying for help.
And then i found god.
My mother came in seconds after i started praying for help. She took me to the hospital and if i hadnt gone when i did i would have been dead.
Now i wake up and i am happy to be alive. Nothing in my life has changed except for me and the way i have decided to see things. I have friends who i never knew i had. I had to open my eyes.
Even if you dont believe in god, theres always hope. ALWAYS. i cant tell you how glad i am to be able to smell the rain and hear cars go by...
if you ever need to talk.

firstname.lastname@example.org is my email adress. If you have msn add me, ill be your friend if thats what you want. I will not judge you, or tell you that your being silly etc.
I will just talk to you, make you feel less along in this big scary world!
|09 Jan 2008||Randy||Killing yourself is just a sad excuse of being weak. If people say they have never surmounted to anything, now is the chance to prove people wrong. If you get put down or things happen to you, rise above it!
"Strength does not come from winning. Your struggles develop your strengths. When you go through hardships and decide not to surrender, that is strength."
Think about it. Do you really want to give up everything you love, just because some things you hate put you down?

|08 Jan 2008||been around the corner||I know you've heard this before, but when you are older, even if you have to wait 10 or 20 years, things WILL get better. Consider that your body is going through a lot of physical and emotional changes during your teens. Imagine that no matter how much your life sucks right now, around the corner things good things are waiting for you: wisdom, experience, freedom, adulthood, information, skills, lovers, friends, pets, great new music, books, adventures, trips to places you've never been...you fill in the rest. In the meantime, if your parents are horrible and you're surrounded by losers, get away when you can...join a club or organization...boys or girls club for example. Seek an adult mentor who can model how to best take advantage of the life you have been given and to make smart choices that will benefit you. It is no substitute for good parents but can give you an idea of a functional life style if you have no clue what that is like.... It breaks my heart reading your suicide posts. Hang in there and remember that you will have the power to control your destiny when you are older...to do things your way. It's OK to fuck up, we're human. How else will we learn to find the right path? If you need to talk feel free to email me. I'm real busy so pls don't waste my time if it's just for kicks. firstname.lastname@example.org|
