Picture of How to Kill Yourself
So you want to kill yourself? Is that why you're here? OK, well, I'm sorry you feel that way, I know it can all feel horribly, tremendously wrong. I've been there. I've stared at sharp objects behind fences and wondered what would happen if I were to jump on them and end it all. For about an hour or so at a time. Fun stuff!

Was I the only one who felt this way? The only one who would have such feelings? What can I say, I was a teenager and I thought I was unique. What I was was stuck in a depression that was eating me alive even as I found it to be so comfy in its absoluteness. Fortunately it was a phase that I was able to put behind myself with a conscious effort.

My friend Paul wasn't so lucky. He fought his depression several times over for a couple decades. After a long battle he chose to fight alone, he took his own life. He wasn't the easiest guy to know, but at his best he could make me laugh and think about all sorts of new ideas for hours on end. I still miss Paul even though it's been over 10 years since we last hung out. This Instructable is for him.

Important Note: If you or a friend are considering suicide please call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline 1-800-273-TALK (8255). It is free and confidential and they know a LOT more about this stuff than I do.

why do u think you are worthless? the problem is that you think too much.. stop being negative, life its hard people have problems try to fix it don't walk away from it, fill your heart with love, hopes, dreams.

when you fall pick your self up, and when you think you cant do anything try again harder,we are all dealing with the same devil but at different levels, don't quit ,never loose hopes, fill you mind with positives, do yoga, exercise i know that there is something out there that other people will be inspired, you doesn't have to be a nerd to survive

please take care of your self and think about it, there are much more of life that u can fill your mind rather than suicide.

I ain't sure I will comply to the "Be Nice" policy of this web site. In fact, I don't rally care about being nice. I break all the rules now.

I am just looking for ways to end my life without pain. I would do it using a gun, but I don't have one. What are my alternatives?

Anyone know how to cope with stuttering? I'm 14 and have been dealing with this disability for most of my life, and I really don't think I can handle it any more. It's just so damn frustrating, it feels like tripping over the same thing over and over again with no way to ever help it. I really don't think non-stutterers will ever understand how hard it is to not be able to say exactly what you want to say, when you want to say it. It's just a natural thing to you. This problem, obviously, destroys my social life and makes me awkward and anti social. On the other hand, my grades are doing really well (106 GPA) and I'm involved in the swim team and band. But my impediment is just slowly eating away at me. My mom really isn't much of a help (my dad is non-existent) and the situation is way too awkward for my friends. If it all just went away I would be in heaven. I would be able to effortlessly order my food. Or be able to clearly communicate with friends, teachers, and strangers. Hell, I would probably be able to get a girlfriend. But then I realize that these things will never happen. Then I imagine what will happen in the (very near) future. I won't be able to get my dream job. Getting a partner will be nearly impossible. It all just seems hopeless now. Any advice? (Sorry for the disorganized paragraph)
I had a terrible lisp until I was 16!!!!!!! after a month of speech therapy I was good, now 4 years without it :) u can do it buddy !!!!

I have advice, messege me on facebook Kaneki Yamada - theres a pic of kaneki from Tokyo ghoul on there.

There's even facebook groups you can join. My daughter is 16 and stutters, too. You are not alone and it can get better once you learn some skills to help your speech.
kdee7 Seanabon29 days ago
I highly recommend a speech therapist. If you are under 18 years old, you should be able to get one through your school for free. Speech therapy can really help alot. There's also online groups and websites you should check out.
I used to stutter, but I went to some speech classes and almost "fixed" it. I get that friends aren't exactly helpful, but it helps to find someone else who stutters/stuttered and work through it with them... it's what I did and now I don't have as bad a stutter :) name doesn't really one calls me by it anyways. But I would love to help and talk to u. Or anyone here...if u have a kik or # u wouldn't mind sharing with me I would love to talk to u..I can definitely understand what ur trying to say

The world would be better of without me
Even my family hates me i just wish my life was over :(

Don't you have to much to live for

I wish there was something I could say to help you, just please do not give up, I just wanted you to know that I sympathize and you are not alone, I am in the throes of a deep depression, I feel weak sad and angry, I cry for anything, my dogs, my mom. I haven't felt good about anything (I'm crying right fukin now and I'm so tired of it.) I'd already be gone if I didn't have to care for my eldery mother, My pets are my only solice. I'm so lonesome, I have no real friends anymore, I'm getting scared because I'm beginning to think of how to check out. Sorry I get long winded, just know someone is praying for you.

Hey, we all know that is not true. If that was, wouldn't someone have tried to kill you? Ok, not helpful, but we don't think you are just a waste of space. Don't hurt yourself just because you think the world would be better off without you. There are people that love you, and they don't want you to kill yourself.

Thinking if to write dis Or not.. I feel worthless I feel like I always mess things up.. my mom told me I'm. Not a true member of this family cause I always mess things up. I had a group of friends now I don't I am a failure to God and myself I don't belong.. I've Being going True dis depression for 10 years Or more I'm 21 now. I never told anyone for 9 years it's long I no.. many time I feel like cuting myself Or drink bleach Or hang myself Or stab myself in the heart... but everytime I think about doing it I think about what if God have a big plan for me down here whatif God say that I'm. The one to make a change. In this world... then I forget. About hurting myself...
I called myself a failure because I don't get along with my friends and family they see me as a No. It all I have a tendence to always be right.. I have the worst anger ever and I upset everybody with it I try not to I really try believe me but it's like it have sum in me that's telling me to get vex.. I pray to God alot and ask him to take it away please cause I'm hurting people I don't want to. I cry everyday asking him y you want me to kill myself and then when judgement day come you ask me y I did it and den u judge me for something I've praying for every day for the past 10 years huh ...I can't take it anymore I'm tired of being tired.. some days I'll Do anything for people and other days I just like to be by myself... I can never do anything right.. when growing up I tried to do everything to make my dad proud but I never did.. I'm just a failure... point. To my story I'm worthless to life.

just want to share my opinion...


what you think about yourself it will happen to in your life. ex: you think you are worthless...then you gonna become one....

so please, don't think you are worthless and start thinking that you are precious and your life gonna's not instant...but time will heal you...

Thank you.
I want to kill myself sometimes, but I also love life, and sometimes I'm afraid of death. Bottling emotions up is just too much fun I guess
Same! Botteling up emotions is the best!! :b

I'm just so done with life :(
Hey. I really just made this entire account on this site just to say this to you:
People dont just say "it gets better" for no reason. I know this from experience. I once thought of killing myself and I still do on occasion just to avoid doing something. I have a solution. Not a dumbass lecture on how to live your life. Find a hobby. Pick up any hobby you sre interested in. Gaming, music, anything that you can reward yourself with. 2, I suggest going to a place with people, to socialize and just have a good time. Meet someone, or find a new friend. 3, find some new music. Beleive it or not, thats most important. Do not listen to anything that makes you feel sad, down, or anything that makes you think about the past. If you find that this isnt helpful, then just... Stay strong. If you have noone to talk to about this, find someone to. I am the most greatful person alive when i stopped myself from taking my life. How did i get out og my depression? I stopped listening to the asses who told me i was just feeling sorry for myself. I shut out the haters and forced myself into a healthier lifestyle. I am now happier, healthier, and best of all in a better place. I cannot stress this enough. Dont end it. Repeating, people say "it gets better" for a reason. Because it does. For me it did, and you would be supprised how much it will for you. Thanks for reading all of this.
Best of luck,
Thanks for some hope...

Why am I still alive, 2 of my best friends killed themselves and another one died in a plane crash, my best friend has abandoned social media and any form of communication, I fail at school and my girlfriend doesn't know for sure if we can stay together. I wish I was dead, I have a group of friends but I don't know, they don't understand me. If there's someone that reads this, know this that I have killed myself probably, I see nothing but grayness around me. I feel alone. My dads gun is loaded and underneath my pillow I will end it soon, I can't take it anymore. No one that will miss me, and no one that cares. I'm a failure at life, a misplaced kid that should have died years ago.
