We can be hard to figure out and we like our privacy we don’t want your looking over our shoulder all the time but we know your loved one better than anybody else and if you think he’s acting differently than usual acting really down crying all the time for no good reason or getting really may not able to sleep or sleeping too much shutting her friends out or giving stuff away acting reckless, using drugs staying out late suddenly not doing stuff used to love or doing stuff that’s just not like him or her.
Most of us feel sad, lonely, or depressed at times. It's a normal reaction to loss, life's struggles, or an injured self-esteem. But when these feelings become overwhelming, cause physical symptoms, and last for long periods of time, they can keep you from leading a normal, active life.
It might be nothing to worry about. It might just be high school or it might be something more e might be depressed about just feeling down really depressed it might be that person is thinking about killing himself or herself.
It happens more than you think more than it should and people say I had no idea I thought it was just a phase he/she was going through I never thought he’d do it I wish he’d come to I wish he had said something I wish I’d said something when it’s too late so if you think your loved acting differently if she/he seems like a different person says something to say what's wrong how can I help and ask him/her straight out.
Are you thinking about killing yourself it doesn’t hurt to ask?
In fact, it helps when people are thinking about killing themselves. They want somebody house, they want somebody to care maybe you’re afraid you’ll make it worse if you ask like you’ll put the idea in their head believe me it doesn’t work that way it doesn’t hurt to ask in fact the best way to keep a person from killing herself/himself is to ask are you thinking about killing yourself and what if they say yes or maybe or sometimes well here’s what you don’t say that’s crazy don’t be such a drama queen making too much of this that boys not worth killing yourself over its not going to solve anything you’re just trying to get attention you’re not going to kill yourself what you do say is I am sorry you’re feeling so bad how can I help. We’ll get through this together let's keep you safe a lot of people think about killing yourself.
Adults and kids most of them never tried but some of them do so if that person says so I’d be better off dead I can’t live with us I am gonna kill myself take her/him seriously find someone they can talk to about it someone who knows how to help sometimes people want to kill themselves because something happened a breakup, a failure but sometimes it goes deeper and its not going to go away by itself get some help talk to your doctor or a counselor but don’t just let it drop and make sure that they always have someone to turn, someone, they trusts to make. Sometimes it's more than that if you think something wrong the only way to find out is to ask straight-out are you thinking about killing yourself.
