I get the sense you’re very burdened by the immense suffering happening around the world every day, to the point that the comforts you have in your own life are always tainted by guilt. I imagine you find yourself questioning why you were chosen to have so much when there are others with so little, and that your ambitions towards a better life for yourself are roadblocked by your doubts that you deserve to have them.
I can hear how important it is for you to be independent and to not impose upon anyone else with your own struggles. I would guess that being so independent can often also leave you very alone with your thoughts, and I’m glad you came here to get outside your own head a bit. We’re all about people making their own choices at Youthspace, and we’re not going to judge you or tell you what to do, I hope that will make you feel comfortable here knowing we won’t try to override your independence.
Six years is a long time to struggle through thoughts of suicide, and I imagine it really pisses you off that others resort to suicide for reasons that seem so trivial in comparison to the big world issues that weigh on you. What keeps you going when things get particularly bleak? Where are your thoughts of suicide at right now?
Know that we will continue to be here for you as you work through these thoughts.
