are all suicide hotlines this useless or was it just this one because i was not even able to talk about my problems
>>734498927 all suicide hotlines are that useless they are all staffed by people who want to do something to feel lie they are helping people without actually helping people calling the cops or going to an ER are the only sure ways of getting help for suicidal thoughts
op here the saddest part about this story is the fact that it is %100 true call suicide hotline because you are thinking about killing yourself get yelled at by nigger to go to library even though all you wanted was to talk with someone about your problems who could at least pretend to care
Why don't you just make a thread here? Yeah, you'll probably get a lot of an hero requests but just sift through that bullshit and maybe you'll find a glimmer or two of solid advice. /b/ is an ocean of metaphorical runny dog shit speckled with tiny bits of Internet gold. Don't kill yourself friend, maybe that feeling won't always be there.
>>734498927 yeah, they're mostly shit. i called one when i was a teen and she (also black and interrupting) told me to call 911 and that she couldn't help/didn't know how to. sorry you're feeling down anon.
>Stoner friend bored in french class. >likes to do prank calls. >calls kids help phone >pretends to cry because he says his dad hates him >phone person tries to talk but he keeps whining about his dog >phone person gets upset and tried to converse >stoner doesn't have it, gets louder >eventual shouting match ensues >He says m'kay bye and hangs up.
>>734498927 Well you aren't dead yet so get some 1 on 1 professional help with a therapist or psychiatrist.They will actually know what the fuck to do since they aren't just volunteers wanting to do a good deed.They are the pullout method equivalent of mental health help where as professionals with a degree are some of those high end birth control devices or pills
>>734499307 this. it will fuck up your family forever. you may think theyre better off, and will get off over it eventually. We dont, we just learn to live with it. The memories never fade, and theres a hole left behind. May sound dramatic, but its true. Especially with suicide, because the people left behind will always feel like there was something they could have done to prevent it, even if thats not the case
>>734503823 He may be right but he does not seem to understand how to change people's minds. You've got to be more subtle and make the other person think those thoughts by themselves else they run a high risk of rejecting the new information. Simply stating something how it is might go against someones preconceived notion of the "truth" which can cause the listener to reject it for it must not be true because this says otherwise.
>>734504067 >don't kill yourself-it upsets the people around you. Go fuck yourself, you selfish prick. If you don't want to be haunted by the memory of the loved ones who offed themselves, then maybe you ought to try helping them BEFORE they get that bad.
>>734504703 Are you fucking kidding me you faggot? The only selfish prick is the one killing himself letting loving people behind. Why do you think it's called "the easy was Out"? Maybe it's easier for you because you don't have any people loving you fucking Beta cuck
>>734504768 Same way everybody else does-BY TALKING TO THEM. Just pick up the phone, get them talking and listen to what they have to say. People have a primal desire to connect with other people, and often all you have to do is just let them talk.
I can't tell you just how much shit my best friend has unloaded on me when everybody else fucking abandoned him. And it was because I was the only one person who would care enough pick up the phone. Through the years I've even talked him down off the ledge a couple of times-as he has to me. While it's not much, it does take a little effort. But the reward is that your loved ones don't kill themselves-that's worth it to me. It clearly isn't to a lot of other people.
>>734505120 You must be the dumbest fuck ever. I think you're just baiting but anyway: You clearly have no idea about suicidial people. If they hide it, just like you just said, you can't fucking see it! I knew a boy that was the fucking happiest dude ever. One day he suddenly jumped in front of a train. He never told anyone about his real feelings. So how could have a Family member or a friend helped him?
>>734505120 >all the time How about you run a million miles and tell me how you expect people to do things ceaselessly. Even the nicest person has a shitty day and can be a little insensitive from time to time.
>feel that family and friends don't give a shit about me >get suicidal over it >try to explain situation to "loved ones" >get yelled at about how I'm being selfiesh and just thinking about myself >realize that "loved ones" really don't give a shit about me and see me just as a device to make them feel good about themselves >decide that to get revenge on the people that should have cared about me >an hero
>>734505406 >People have a primal desire to connect with other people That they can deny because they're too busy believing some lie they've gotten spun into, just because it worked out for you in your situation doesn't mean that you've found a one size fits all solution. Sometimes people have to want the help, and sometimes they have to initiate the dialogue before they can start getting over their unfortunate problems. How about you spend more time thinking about how people are vs your childish assumptions. When I get suicidal thoughts, I don't want to tell anyone because I don't want to inflict pain upon them.
>>734505184 No, everybody's selfish. That's not always a bad thing, but like everything else people need to keep that in check too. The truth is the guy in your life who offed himself wasn't important to you. Maybe you think so now that he's gone, but at the time you couldn't be arsed to care. To the extent that caused what happened, that's on you.
>>734506420 They do, but only about the bottom line and as much of an asshole company as they are, the customer service helps helps keep the customers. Think about it, who started killing Net Neutrality? Verizon. Who has the highest rates? Verizon. Why do people stay with them? Fuck if I know, tho last I recall they do have the best reception.
Get some sunlight, take yr vitamins, and eat healthier, dude.. also sleep more. You'll feel better in a few months. Trust me. Depression is a symptom of something else. It doesn't exist alone. Fix it.
It's funny, because I used to get fucked up and mutilate myself at punk shows like the dude in your pic, OP. Still have the scars. I'd take drugs all the time, drink tons of booze, the works.. I almost died a few times.
>>734505880 So talk to somebody who you know will listen to you. >childish assumptions It may sound childish, but that's what works. Indeed, it's the only thing that does consistently.
It doesn't work all of the time-sometimes people are determined or you get them too late and other shit has taken over-and it can't stop suicidal thoughts running through people's heads, obviously. But it can keep the trigger from being pulled for a little while; sometimes that's enough.
>>734507009 >it's the only thing that does consistently. >It doesn't work all of the time kek, nigga what? I agree, talking to people CAN help but unless the person really wants help then it will be a vain pursuit and you'll have wasted time talking to somebody that doesn't actually want to get better when you could have talked to somebody else that does. One must know how to pick their battles and understand that they can't save everyone, even if everyone only pertains to the group of individuals they know.
>>734499491 worked as a staff manager at a suicide hotline center. We purposely hired people that seemed the most apathetic since we're paid on the volume of calls we get, not the length of each individual call.
