User Topic: What I Would've Missed Out On If I'd Committed Suicide

Here's an article on the Huffington Post on the topic:

It's just a short one, but makes a good point. Here's my favourite quote from it:

I have so many things to look forward to, and you do too. I know that depression is an expert at robbing you of your hope, and making you feel as if you're destined to a life of unremitting misery and despair, but depression is a liar. Recovery is possible.

I still have days where I think "I wouldn't be worrying about this now if my suicide attempt had worked", but they don't happen as often as they used to. I have a good life.

Please read this if you have ever considered suicide.

Thanks for this Pass. I wrestle with this myself. Especially lately. While I'm grateful that I didn't commit suicide, I have some survivor's guilt over not having committed suicide.

A big part of me is convinced that had I went ahead and killed myself like I had planned, my brother would have seen it and would be here today. What stopped me 2 days from pulling it off was I saw the aftermath of a classmate committing suicide and the impact that it had on her friends and family. So I didn't and picked my bags back up. A big part of me is convinced that if my brother had seen me do it, that he would have had the same conclusion that I did and he would still be here today. I know it's illogical but it a big part of my DNA at this point.

I do remember that once I made the decision to do it, that was the most peaceful time of my life. Nothing mattered anymore and I had let it all go.

depression is a liar

Yes it is. I need to remind myself of that.


"I remind myself of this. I am a survivor. I have taken all this world has dished out and am still here. So there is no reason to be afraid. Whatever happens, I will survive. So now onto living. It is time for me to thrive." - DrJekyll
