Okay, so this is in reference to this thread: http://suicideproject.org/2014/08/a-big-hug-to-you-guys-and-a-suggestion/
A lot of people I talked to expressed their willingness to enter such a place, where they could actually forget about the pain, even for a moment. But there was one guy who expressed his reservations over this (and quite valid I’m afraid). You could simply read the comments in the above linked thread and let us know what you think?
By default, any topic in this category would also be visible on the homepage to everyone, irrespective of whether they’re interested to look into this or not. They could feel while everyone else is happy, they’re not. But this shall not be the case, people who have landed onto this site through Google aren’t looking for a place where they could forget their pain, and why would be they interested in this? That was a very valid point by Durmmy and I thank him to bring this up. But, don’t you think, that anyone who’s come here, could find something worth discussing and relating to somebody? Somebody with the same interests as yours, even a tiny bit of connection would help so much in eliminating the alienation feeling and loneliness. Once this is underway, you could actually make so many friends over here, who understand you and will be there for you, but have been anonymous until now. You could choose to contact them in RL, don’t you think it’d help, both them and you? We are not just random persons lending support to each other, we’ve all been there and know what exactly it feels like, so we’d always be lending people support who need it, and want when we need it for ourselves.
Anyway, I e-mailed the admin to create a new forum category wherein we could discuss only the happy (or the pain free) aspects of your life. Any topic of your interest like sports, outdoor activities, anything.
And we could go ahead with this only after the concerns have been addressed and people are willing to give this a shot. You don’t have to contribute, you could always choose not to read. Or just read, and have a chuckle? Well, we’d be very glad for that.
Lastly, if the people do not want it here, we could simply create another forum for this. So you don’t get to read somebody’s ‘That funny moment when he had to urge the resist to fart, while sitting beside his crush’ when you’re like ‘I’m done on this Planet’.
Take Care people.
And thanks again Admin, you’re da boss.
