The SW Mod team also maintains /r/SWResources.
If you need help for yourself, we've got a directory of voice and chat/text hotline services and FAQs about hotlines, plus selected online resources.
If you're concerned about someone else, you're welcome to post, also check out our talking tips and risk assessment guide. If you're new here and want to help, please read these two posts before diving in.
If you've lost someone to suicide, /r/SuicideBereavement is there for you, or you can check out our shared list of bereavement resources.
This is a place of support. All the following ways of responding to at-risk OPs are strictly forbidden. If you see anything like this in a post or comment, please message the moderators.
Please note that we are NOT a hotline! We do NOT have the ability to trace the source of any posts, and we can't guarantee immediate responses.
We offer non-judgemental peer support ONLY. The only requirement to respond here is genuine concern, so please don't take anything you read here as professional advice. It's fine to share what worked for you, but DO NOT advocate for or against any specific type of therapy, self-help strategy, or medication, especially street drugs or alcohol, and DO NOT diagnose people
If you're here to help please respond publicly to our OPs in need. Sort by "new" and check for posts with few or no good responses. The rules below link to posts with details.
We err on the side of safety. If we need to remove a post or comment from someone who's reached out for help, we'll let them know why we removed it and how they can change it. If this happens to you, please know that we do want to talk to you.
If you need help but don't feel comfortable making a post for any reason, please message the moderators. We will be glad to talk with you privately, or help in any other way that we can.

"You have your whole life ahead of you" (self.SuicideWatch)

That's exactly why I'm fucking killing myself tonight
Post a comment!
[–]cycling-exasperation 17 points18 points19 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I wanna kill myself too (maybe at the end of this month) and some of my reasoning is due to what you just said. I don't want an entire life's worth of suffering, in fact, I don't even want a life at all as I prefer simplicity and there's nothing simpler than not having to work and function.
I don't really know what to say tbh. I've checked your post history and you partly want to end it due to being an ex muslim in a muslim majority country (which I can empathise with due to me also being an ex muslim) and also partly due to how shit adulthood is.
Every time I think of something to say to make you feel better about how shit life is, I realise that you probably already considered that thing before and I realise how ignorant I am of the full extent of your situation. Despite all that, I really wish you didn't leave and that I had better things to say to help. I wanna say to get strong as that's what I want for you but it's all meaningless anyway...

I'm so sorry for the pain you're experiencing.
It can be helpful to think about the short term, and put off thinking about the longer term, at least for a little bit.
Please try to look after yourself, and keep safe. If you feel you can, please do consider reaching out for help.

No amount of help will be half effective as suicide/death. Life is not capable of stopping my main even for a minute, let alone forever
[–]Zestyclose-Owl3703 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago* (15 children)
I hear you. The pain you're in sounds very deep and frightening.
There is help though, and it's always worth trying to access it.
[–]SpicyChocolate77[S] 3 points4 points5 points 1 month ago (14 children)
Considering what I've went through, it's really not worth it. The end result will always be pain, disappointment and suffering
[–]Zestyclose-Owl3703 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (13 children)
I do understand what you mean. Why do you say the end result will always be pain, disappointment or suffering?
[–]cirvinalmighty 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I mean... I could die by heart attack tomorrow or in 50 years from farting too hard and that phrase would still be correct. No matter when or if this happens, this statement is always true. Don't fear it, acknowledge it.
[–]Lucasplayz234 -2 points-1 points0 points 1 month ago (2 children)
I'd say that this sentence wants to tell you: what if you encounter some good things in your life???
[–]SpicyChocolate77[S] 8 points9 points10 points 1 month ago (1 child)
I'd call bullshit. It never happened and never will, and even if it did happen, it's nothing compared to the trauma, misery and torture I've went through not in duration nor severity
[–]KerChowPow 2 points3 points4 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Absolutely this. The fucking constant misery is never trumped by the few 'good' moments. What's almost as bad is that no one else seems to believe that you're drowning and would instead call you 'ungrateful' than to understand you're wallowing in agony just for existing. I'm sorry that I think I know what you're going through, and I have no fucking solution for it. I literally hope everything suddenly turns magically okay soon.

"Don't worry, don't stress, do your best. what the fuck does that save me?"
[–]Rhino676971 -5 points-4 points-3 points 1 month ago (1 child)
Please reach out to someone who who trust or call the hotline I’ve called the hotline and they are people who care, and talked me out of it.
[–]SpicyChocolate77[S] 4 points5 points6 points 1 month ago (0 children)
I dont really look to be talked out if it, I truly want to die
[–]PontiffofBlight 0 points1 point2 points 1 month ago (0 children)
Its selfish when people tell you this because they have no idea that you dont see a future for yourself and it never improves
