10 unMEAN sTWEETs From Steemians Who Have Had Experience, Dealing With Suicidal Thoughts!

4년 전


Humans are created with the "desire to live", hard-wired into their minds but many in the world have considered suicide at some point in their lives. This can be due to depression, pain, loss of loved ones, watching loved ones suffer and some people get to a point in life or depth, where life and the whole process of waking up to eat and drink, just no longer make much sense. 

It is established! Many people in the world look to suicide as a solution to problems. They start to see it as an option or a route to take when life is going out of hand. 

But are we to look down on them for being suicidal? Note that, not everyone who is suicidal, is suicidal as a result of drug abuse and some who end abusing drugs, may have gone that path in trying to curb some other underlying problems like depression, anxiety and in some cases, extreme pain and illness, etc. 

So are we to talk and give loving support to these ones or are we to regard them as a lost cause?

No human breathing is ever a lost cause!

One factor easy to notice in the case of those who live with suicidal thoughts is that a support system goes a long way in helping them overcome these battles. In many cases, these ones feel they are alone and sometimes never open up about their condition due to shame or fears that they won't be understood. 

It will help people who live with suicidal thoughts to know that they are not alone and many in the world know, understand and have experienced what you are going through and are passionate about helping!

Just incase you feel you are alone, here are:

10 unMEAN sTWEETs From Steemians Who Have Had Experience Dealing With Suicidal Thoughts!


1. @englishtchrivy shared this beautiful comment when responding to @thecryptofiend who stated his past experience with suicide here:

I'm grateful you are still alive
otherwise I wouldn't have bumped into such a very generous - big heart soul virtually.You're going to be a big loss in the world had it been the other way around.

Suicide is not a solution.

indeed.. everyone could have depression and some could even be a walking depression
in a particular place in Asia its rampant - there's even a forest there where people hang themselves on trees to die despite the many posts that says think about your parents, your family, wife and kids.
However, they also have the highest rate of loneliness - I guess the more people get to talk and socialize and feel that they are valued and they can do what they are passionate of - the more they live but the opposite of that - having no one and no one to understand nor support you - is already death too .. but go out and talk - or go to a shrink and if they are too embarrassed - find one who caters in skype. Suicide is the worst option - seeking help and socializing could even sometimes be free and if you got lucky -its also possible virtually these days.
 


2. @simonjay related his experience in this awesome comment:

Suicide is definitely not the solution to your problems @thecryptofiend I have been there, the one thing that helped me the most was learning psychology, life is beautiful and you only have one.

 
3. @onetree has also had to deal with suicidal thoughts in the past:

I completely identify. Only the effect suicide would have on my children prevented me from considering it more seriously. It does get better and it gets worse again. It's a cycle, but slowly you learn coming skills.

 

4. @lucashunter states the case in Nigeria:

Depression and committing suicide is plague. I remember an hall mate who committed suicide taking insecticide. That incident still hunt me to this very moment. I wish there was a Samaritan organization in Nigeria maybe that will reduce the suicide cases that plague the nation.


 5. @thecryptofiend left a pertinent fact in this comment:

 Medics generally have some of the highest rates of depression and suicide.

 

6. @bitgeek had this to say:

I suffered terribly from anxiety for a number of years and luckily, I've had a strong support network around me but it's the toughest thing I have ever had to go through. The most difficult aspect for me was the lack of understanding of the illness from a lot of friends and relatives. It's not like others illnesses that are physical and can be treated in a hospital. I found that when I was at my lowest point I felt I would be stuck like that forever and that "this was it". I know you are talking about suicide and I completely agree that it is never the answer but in my experience I was paralysed with fear when I was at my worst. It's a different type of mental illness but I could see how it would lead someone to contemplate suicide. The best advice I could give is to keep talking about it and get help. There is light at the end of the tunnel if you are willing to let others help you. Great article and thanks again for sharing your story.

 

7. @jlufer left his true story in this comment:

I had a very difficult childhood, at one time I lived in a street situation, I left my house at 14 years of age to another city in search of improvement, at first this new city received me very badly, I lived a long time in the street and I must admit that in more than one opportunity I thought about taking my life, I did not do it because I was thinking about the pain that would cause my mother, then my life changed and finally emerged.
I read Isabel Allende's book, the power is in you, there I understood many things, then I had a successful career, I was manager of several very important company.
You're right in what you say sucidio is not the solution.
 

8. @samdaman talks in the voice of a VET:

As a Vet, I have had my bouts with depression and almost succumbed to the final resort to solve the problem. I have had more brothers and sisters that I have served with die due to this mental illness state side then overseas in combat. It is a matter that needs to be addressed, but it starts with us as a community. Suicide is a problem that comes from the social lifestyle. With Vets, we feel like we don't have a belonging when we come back to the civilian life and there for isolate ourselves form others. That makes matters worst! Being alone with your thoughts and finding quick solutions as drinking and drugs will exacerbate the issue. We need each other and empathize with one another. There are many that think we are weak in mental stand point, when in all actuality, we are all vulnerable to the issue. Thanks for this post!


 9. @crystalandbones has also been there:

I've been in this dark place before and sometimes it's really hard to break free of it.
I would not be here today if not for the love and support of family and friends.
It's so important to reach out and to share with those who love you about what's going on.

 

10. @hope777 also leaves her experience with suicidal thoughts:

 The first time when I got depressed, by the time I was diagnosed I was down in a very deep dark pit. Thoughts of suicide was my companion everyday. It took me very long to see the light again. But I got good treatment and cognitive treatment. That help me to recognize the depression sooner and not allow myself to go that deep before seeking help. From 1990 till 2006 I was hospitalized 4 times. About once every four years. Since 2007 I do not get that depressed anymore usually just a bit melancholy for a few days and manage to snap out of it. It is a war with your thoughts instead of allowing yourself to become more and more negative you must try fight it. Renew your mind and let rational thought win the war!

We've had to deal with suicide in our family from a most unsuspected person. She was smart, successful, much loved and beautiful. She was on a lot of medication and in my mind it had altered her sense of reality and she just wasn't herself.

·
So sorry about your loss. Just perhaps the medication. These ones need to be checked on constantly so they get into isolation.

Desperate situations do not exist. Suicide is not a way out of this situation. And life is the most precious gift and it should be properly disposed of. In general, suicides tend to people with unbalanced psyche or addicted to bad habits. I think so.

·
Yes but in many case, abject suffering or watching a loved suffer can also be reason for suicidal thoughts, but ofcourse, life is a most precious gift, so we need to help the suicidal ones hold on to life!
·

I don't agree with this at all. Not everyone who commits suicide is unbalanced and addicted to bad habits. I have experienced suicide a lot through my work and some of the men and women that i have met have been some of the most balanced and fascinating people that i have ever had the pleasure to have a comversation with. However life, for some people isnt as rosy as it is for others. Some of the individuals who have taken their own lives have experienced unimaginable horror.... the death of their children.... rape..... the rape of their children.... domestic violence...... for some its a means of escape and whilst i agree that life is precious....... i don't always attribute suicide to someone being unbalanced or having an addiction....... We need to be more supportive of those with suicidal thoughts, rather that reinforcing societal labelling that people are unbalanced....... after all..... whats balanced anyway????

How can I think of suicide if there is a merry and stormy life around me. If I learned that someone wants to commit suicide, I would take it in a turn, and dive headlong into a nightly, cheerful life, and in the daytime it would simply Was asleep. And he would not have had time to think about suicide.

·
Your comment is so so so sweet and logical. I mean, sleep is also a state of unconsciousness, so why not just sleep instead!
·
·

If you just sleep, it will not affect the decision of the suicide and does not change his decision. With the help of night entertainment you can show that there are other pleasant things in life: loud music, night clubs, sex))

·
·
·
When someone gets to a suicidal state, doesn't pleasant things of life no longer count much! Loving and enduring support from friends, family etc is great help at this point and help from experts!

Genuinely have so much love for all yall. If anyone ever feels messed up and needs someone to talk to, hit me up on Steemit Chat.

Cheer! Same name on Steemit chat. No expertise with regards counselling, apart from getting some myself, but I think it's important to get stuff off your chest ASAP when you're head is in a bad place.

·
·
·
Okay, so your expertise is "listening". It is even a talent! Backed by love too! Stay awesome!

Before dealing with suicidal ideals, you need to see not the symptoms, but the root causes. They can be buried very deeply. Well, and such symptoms as loss of a loved one and so on, lie on the surface. You do not need to fight with them.
When I spoke with a man, after attempting suicide, it turned out that his dissatisfaction with life as such, originates at a fairly young age. Well, after his wife left him, all these problems, which accumulated over the years, began to emerge. That's when he went to such an act. After three weeks, he completely degenerated and began to think in completely different categories.

·
You comment is so so so sweet. Who knows it could be mentioned in another post! You get it right, many of these issues accrued over time and treatment as too look far back!
·
·

The fact is that I studied psychology. I worked as a teacher. Look, if you treat the symptoms, then we just remove the problem for a while. But she will return again. Therefore, it is necessary to fight not with manifestations, but with deep meanings.
You have intrigued me. You need to write on this topic yourself. If my thoughts are interesting, I can throw here a link))

I personally think it is one of the best posts I read here. 💜 I wonder if we as a little steemit village should think about using the steemit chat for suicide prevention. It is a proven fact that people who were able to share their thoughts and worries and found support didn't commit suicide. Just leaving my thought here...

·
No doubt, we are sure something in this regard is in the making and it is very obvious that this topic concerns many steemians. Thank you for dropping by! And your comments is so awesome!

Now I am blushing😊

Suicide or giving up is never an option, It is like facing away from a car because its coming on your way and you think either the car will move away itself or it will graze down and kill you.
We have to work out on other options like moving away from its path right or left, sometimes we have to jump so that it goes under us, sometimes we have to take it further and lay down so the car crosses over us without killing us. But we have to work out something to deal with the threat.

Sometimes the pain is so hard, the circumstances are low, and you are tried of hurting yourself, and the pain lies, depression lies, despair lies, and you hate yourself, and there's feeling that it's impossible to get better, standing in the ruins of life, there's so much negativity which we think are created by our circumstances, misfortune, and the people around us, BUT, are actually the result of our cowardice and the lack of tolerance.

Whatever may be the situation, suicide is never a solution. Sometimes, it may be hard to resist, but it's never impossible.
Remember,

Once you survived the crucible, you grow stronger for it.

There are so many ways to help survive those hard times. A good communication is always better solution. Mediation, peaceful music, refreshment and also psychologist advice are always useful.

You are so lucky for you have life, don't just waste it rather enjoy every piece of it.

Well said. Very beautiful comment! Life is a gift! It is not for us to take! The Giver of Life Jehovah has gifted us with life!
·
·

thank you for your sweat reply!!
I got to know about YHWH just few days ago, it feels so good to look around and see people having beliefs and appreciating their Gods :) We might have different beliefs, thoughts, origin, but we actually stand on the same viewpoints, never let ourselves down, it's our beliefs and faiths that keeps us alive and humane.

·

·
Glad to know you learnt of Jehovah! Stay inquisitive and learn more about HIM! He is Love!

Sorry about your mood and glad that this post was timely. Sometimes all we need is "words" at the right moment and we are fixed! There is a Creator Jehovah and He cares! Great things are bound to happen soonest!

@unmean-stweets странные люди те, которые налаживают на себя руки. Я вот честное слово не понимаю таких людей. Это сколько же нужно смелости, чтобы убить себя. Я так точно никогда таким методом решения проблем не рассматривала.

·
Got the translation for @patelincho even though she doesn't really speak your language and your comment is so awesome. Thank you for the effort. Indeed, it is hard to take one's own life and certainly not a solution? What is your language?
·
·

It's Russian

·
·

русский и украинский))

Philippines is not a suicidal people,
We look the view of life in Gods hands

Thats the big aspect of ones life believing,
That somebody up their,
As long as you live, breath
There is always a beautiful sunshine after the hard rain!

·
Well yes. We have a maker Jehovah and he loves us dearly. All the sorrows life brings is courtesy of Satan and this knowledge goes a long way!
·
·

Religion affects human life,
I am not against islam but there quran teaches about suicide in the name of Allah will bring them to heaven and welcome as hero!
I think, it cannot be change..

I see a high ranking suicidal people too in india,
Its the way they evalute individual status, from classes, degrade the value of human life..
As it has a tag price..

·
·
·

You have created a special comment thread here and nice to see your from the Philippines! No doubt, you have great points. Regardless, humans were created with consciences and even in the existence of religion we can still express our inborn ability to express love. So love all the way! Consider visiting us and feel free to post in tagalog/filipino. We value that! Following you!
Kumusta!

I fell great when there is filipino here,

Bihira kasi filipino sa steem..
Ok lang buhay kabayan..
Happy steeming

following you too

Shall we open a psycho-trail? Let's find a psychologist on Steemit who can teach community to heal persons with suicidal thoughts.

·
You have great points. This is a really great niche and it is evidence that there is interest! Pretty sure something is being worked on.
·
·

I'm sure that positive reaction from the community has a healing effect in itself, but still there has to be more to learn to that topic. You did it good @unmean-stweets, so…

Namaste <3 :)

Thank you for the mention @unmean-stweets
