“suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem”
1) who the fuck are you to tell me my problems are temporary!? I’ll have you know they’re permanent and something I’ll have to deal with my entire life even if i get it straightened out.
2) “your fixes are a temporary fix to my permanent problem” if i go off my meds/stop therapy, if I’m not constantly working on myself, I’m right back where i started. Sounds pretty fucking temporary.
I think these people have their saying backwards and the sad part is, they’ll refuse to understand and just continue to argue about it…. Humans *eye roll*. If you really want to help i have 3 rules
1) sit down
2) shut up
3) open your ears
Don’t just say shit to ‘me’ like it means shit, because it doesnt. If you’re not going to take the time to even understand what the problem is, then you are of no place to give advice. You can’t help something you know nothing about and even if you’re thinking “I’ve dealt with someone that’s depressed before” stop right there and remove that thought from your mind. Everyone is different and sometimes it might be more then just that, so you have to shut up and listen to the person. Why is that so difficult? “I’m suicidal” and the other person is either trying to put a bandaid on an arm that’s hanging there or a cast on a paper cut. Like dude, just shut up for 1 minute and honestly listen.
