  1. I tried killing my self once, my family did not care, my father did not even talk to me.

    After about 11 years, I am suicidal again, don’t think they would care again. I am scared of myself now.

  2. Im depressed because of inequality…poverty and debt….all things that will get worse and climate change gets worse….my oler brother took his life on june 17, 2022. I talked to him that night on the phone and before i said i love you and bye….he said, "You know what, being poor is not fair its degrading. All the rich people are rich because of poor peoples work. They cant mske me their slave." I laughed because i thought he was making a joke….when i cslled him on my second break he didnt answer….and he never will answer my calls again….and it hurts so bad i cant even put it to words without shaking…but i dont feel anger. I know i hurt because of what he did….but he was being assaulted by the cruelty of society. Poverty. Nepotism….and the harsh damage poverty does to the mind. The lack of dignity….i forgive my brother. Everyday i wish he was here because talking to him made being alive so much easier than i understood. I dont take that for granted any longer. So i will say that i do think people can choose to leave and it hurts and is mind bendingly painful….but ask yourself….is this really a world worth living in for everyone ? Or have we all been socially conditioned to cattle prod each other socially to grind until we die as every avenue to stability is torn away. Jerome Powell of the federal reserve said he wants poor people to have less money. So we can buy less….so inflation gets better….man. This is not a world worth living in. Id like to just go chill with my bro at this point.

  3. I think most people are simply made to do this life, the people who are not made to do it like myself are depressed. I also find these times so cold and artificial, the way people are and talk the attitude they have, the horrible TV terrible music soulless personality's/ fake laughing strange expression on people's faces etc etc , I do not buy it

  4. I feel like social media has gotten me depressed year after year.. I’m trying to love my own life but I see people alway accomplishing so much for themselves and I’m trying to be the same way! I wish I didn’t have my brain. I hate it! I feel like there’s no hope for me.. I’m 25 and I feel like I’ve failed and I’m just going to keep failing..

  5. One reason I could never kill myself. I don't want my children growing up blaming themselves or my wife constantly questioning everything she said or done. I don't associate myself with much value but my family mean the world to me. Someone once told me that suicide was a permanent solution to a temporary problem. This has always stuck with me.

  6. Sometimes like i felt im not good enough, sometimes i felt like im weak. I want to share with somebody even now i wrote this because i know the one who gonna read this is stranger, someone idk. I felt like empty, nothing…. idk anymore. I hooked up with porn too brush all the thoughts.. and it make everything worsen if im honest. I try to talk with my one of my family member about this, i got replied " hey dont talk about tht". Inside of me shock and i thought that time "i need help why no one wants too help me" then i giggle towards the reply said "im just joking" but deep down i can say for sure im dead… so dead that i dont even care anymore. Things that make me live until now because firstly my little bro who i always have fun with, second is my religion (not because it said suicider will go to hell) mostly because my religion has this kind of mushaf that so relaxing when i heard someone other than me read it. Idk what else want to wrote because there is a lot of things but idk anymore. I hope one day, just only one person only one aldy enough for me that he can be thr for me, not judge me at all and i can have fun with and most of all i dont need to fake a smile anymore, i can be who i am which is not someone that always need to make ppl around me feel happy and good about themselves. Im tired……

  7. Just pray to Yahweh through Jesus name. Ask for his kingdom to come. Ask for forgiveness. Then ask for forgivness from past sins, wisdom, guidance and insight. He will answer you. Your life will start to change as he draws you near.

  8. this video and seeking help is what brought me out of my suicidal depresssion. i would put this video on repeat for 8+ hours during my work days. now i'm in a better place, I want to thank my friends, co workers, and my boss for helping me when i was at my lowest place and helping me trudge through it

  9. My son literally saved my life he gives me the strength to go out and face the day even with depression. I can never and will never let him go on without me because of that.

  10. Im depressed.
    I take medicin and sh1t but it doesent matter the word doesent become a place thats worth living in so yes, but no.
    Idc what they all think when im dead im dead idc about anytheing then.
    My mom told me that sh would $uicide when i do and i dont want her to but…
    Its just way to mu h pain for me to handle.
    I cant live with that

  11. Not everyone has a family. I have experienced individuals within families that have encouraged family members to take their own lives. Their motivation often has been for money, jealousy, disdain, or control of any given situation. I am not in their minds, but these individuals are many. The counselling we recieve not adequate. Anti depressants not the answer from my experience. Self harm, drugs, sex, alcohol, thrill seeking distractions. When we become numb for a long enough periods of time, we begin to revist the leaving. To those out there finding themselves alone, no one ne to support or live for. I would ask that you internalize you are ONE OF A KIND, and love you. I need you. Stay safe

    My view would be if we do not have the courage to leave or the courage to reach out, we own our journey.

  12. Nothing works this world is built on anger dying seem like living to me at this point I have 3 small children I try to stay for it seem like it's best if I was just gone

  13. I went to hospital and was diagnosed with depression and anxiety. My mother was disappoint with me. She didn't say anything but I can tell from the look of her face. She called me crazy that time but I know she dont really mean it. We never talk about my mental health ever since. Its like it never happened. I told my sister I have depression and she said that everyone have it. Since nobody care about it I just thought that this stuff is not important and ignored it. I never met any doctors, psychiatrists or therapists. I've always wanted to k*ll myself the only thing stopping is that I just don't want to ruin my family image.

  14. It's easy for Rich people to talk about suicide and depression. They have options. Depressed people don't have the freedom to accept the things they cannot change. When you're at the bottom, all family is gone. All friends are gone. All hope is gone. If I had money and a good job, I'd live in Colorado and walk in the Mountains for exercise and peace of mind. This is what the Government is doing to people. Driving life into the iceberg like the Titanic. I'm just one of the Rats trying to leave the sinking ship. "In the last days, Men will seek death and not find it." I guess Jesus will explain that one to me when I get there. If, I get there?

  15. I’m so depressed man and I hide it so well but deep down I really want to do it. But I keep thinking about my family and friends and the impact I will leave on them sighs don’t want to be selfish

  16. I don’t know when it will happen but I know it will happen one day. I hate how everyone sees me as an extroverted successful person but it hurts as hell to keep up that image. I wish I didn’t care that much. I wish I could forget it all. I want more than anything to be reborn again.

  17. Depression is a billion times worst than how he tries to explain it. I pray hard when I feel my Depression coming and still it's consumed me ? I don't want to be depressed it's horrible.

  18. I am depressed, and filled with anxiety. I don't trust in the world anymore, and I am thinking life is better without me existing. I was always told that GOD has a purpose for my life, and for many days I believed that. But the world is just getting worse, and people don't give a damn about each other anymore. I just don't know who to talk to without someone thinking I am just some freak of nature, a loser, a waste of space and time.

  19. My beautiful wife passed away. When she passed away I wish widowers syndrome took me. I want to die. I can't do it because the thought that of all the things she went through and fought so hard for life I would disgrace her.

    I am unable to change, at this time, my wish to die. I am stuck.

    He is correct. There is nothing helpful of beating yourself up. I just wish I held my own words to heart.

  20. 1) dopamine detox
    2) fix your mindset suggestion watch g mindset by Andrew Tate listen for real helps 10000% bonus work on growth mindset think you're here to experience life it's a journey etc
    3) eat healthy foods be healthy get stronger strength training or martial arts will help you get stronger both physically and mentally
    4) meditation
    5) stoicism memento Mori

    Hope this helps this are the things that I do to help me get myself out of depression suicidal thoughts

  21. What's left when you've tried every avenue? When you've been told it gets better and 1 year of working on it becomes 3 then 5 then 6 all the way to fucking 11 and climbing… what then? Can't work, no friends, 6 years isolated not leaving the house. What then? It's too late to fix it all now…
