You never know if someone needs this. Reblog this, even if its not your ‘blog type’. Just do it.
Yes, please reblog
Do it. Now.
i sat here and thought about reblogging this or not but then i realized how many people feel suicidal, and i have too its not dan and phil but i could honestly care less, bc i rather have someone not die then make sure i strictly stay to my ‘blog type’
I don’t wanna lose any of you guys
Eh, I really don’t like this at all
May I ask why?
It’s hard to say. I definitely see where a lot of people reblog it for anyone who might see it and they could think here’s someone who cares, and also just for the simple reason it could help someone stay alive. But for me, and just some context I have dealt with being suicidal and trying to commit suicide before, I am never going to tell someone to promise me they won’t commit suicide or self harm because when you’re in that situation it’s an option. And when I say that I mean, it’s an option when literally all else seems impossible. Like you couldn’t see yourself living long enough to make it to an emergency room. I just feel so damn weird telling someone who is going through so much pain what they shouldn’t do, especially having been on the receiving end of messages just like this myself. Basically, it’s just my opinion. I’m not going to knock anyone for reblogging it or trying to help people in those situations.
It’s a very touchy subject because when I was at the lowest I’ve ever been I was feeling guilt over just being alive. I thought for sure that I couldn’t contribute anything. I was questioning why I was alive when so many others weren’t and hearing things like this from my parent literally put me in an even guiltier state. They wanted me to live for me but I was essentially just feeling obligated to live for them.
I’m really trying to explain this, and I don’t know if I’m making sense. I feel like what would be better would be letting people know that if they are feeling suicidal where they can call to speak to someone (like lifenet in New York). Maybe it’s because I feel like there’s such a rush to tell people what they shouldn’t do as opposed to giving them other options to cope and resources they can use. Or even asking them if they want to go to the hospital.
I don’t know if you want to read all of this but basically it’s an opinion of mine. Feel free to ignore it if you need to.
