I think this is the wrong place?

Community Member

I am really in need of some help, but I don’t think this is the place for it. I have tries several times to end my life, which I might add is not easy. It would seem these type of government help lines have been taken over and commercialised, press 1 for this 2 for that. Not what I need, I needed a voice not a machine. My family don’t talk to me, with I think is an attitude ok don’t make a mess.
Why is it that so many people don’t want others to finish? My live is worth nothing, when I go, nothing will change, the world will not come to an end, in fact nobody will even know about It except the undertaker. So why not help people? Why do they wish to keep us here?

Hi Lurker 78,

I'm so glad you chose to talk to us - you have already served a purpose that you never knew you would!

A quick glance at some other threads will show you that your feelings of 'what value do I provide?' are not exclusive, and you may find support from reading a few, as much as those who read yours can feel less alone as a result. And all of that happens in a simple little forum!

Trouble with 'just ending it' is that you will be depriving everyone in your future who will some day need your help, support, assistance, love, advice, charity... This is the knock-on effect of what you are suggesting.

- Sorry to correct you, but nothing could be further from the truth.

You are part of the cycle of life and your reason for being here is assured by your existence - maybe not right now, or next week, but none of us can know when we will be required to step up - even asking for help serves a purpose. We all need to love and be loved and you are a part of the process.

Please keep helping us here if you can.
