Hi everyone, and welcome back to this week's edition of the Commaful Advice Column! If you would like any advice on a subject, please DM me and I'll pass it on to one of the lovely advisors!
Today, we have a pretty long letter, so we'll just be answering one. The other letters will be answered next week!
I've been feeling pretty down lately, and well as for someone suffering from physical and mental pain I have to admit it, I'm starting to worry about myself. honestly, I feel so over the living.
Now I have doubt that I won't survive. I wanna talk to someone about it but I've turned to someone bottling up stuff! I've cut off family connections and telling friends my problems.
especially since they act like they don't care when I tell them. and people in life seem just to disappear. it feels hard to carry throughout the day. feel like no one can help me besides death.
basically, I wanna die. and I want myself to suffer in the back of my mind. and I am not deserving of happiness that's something that crawls on my mind. honestly Idk what I'm even talking.
so yeah. I don't know what to do about this miserable self.
Dear lonely stranger,
I know how you're feeling. I may not know exactly what you're going through, but I've felt something similar to that.
Even though you feel like that there's no light at the end of the dark tunnel we call life, then just know that things will get better and that people will be there to support you,
even if it doesn't seem like it. If your friends don't care or listen to you when you tell them your problems, then you're hanging around the wrong people.
Real friends care if you're depressed or feeling like life isn't worth living. And I understand that you feel like the only answer is death, and please believe me when I say that you're wrong.
Death isn't the answer. I had to figure that out myself the hard way. You may think that you don't deserve happiness, but you do. No human being should suffer and be miserable all the time.
My advice is to please get help from a counselor or a therapist. You don't need to die. I had a friend who left because he didn't think life was worth living, and it crushed me.
If you left, then you'd be hurting your family and friends. People do care about you even if they don't show it outwardly.
If you ever need someone to talk to, then you can always DM me, although I advise that you talk to your family about these thoughts you're having (I know it's hard since you've been bottled up,
but talking does help; trust me) or you can call the suicide hotline number 800-273-8255 and they can help you too. I'm sorry for ranting, but know that you're not alone.
I've had those thoughts, those feelings of worthlessness and wanting to die, and I still do to some extent. But you shouldn't have to deal with this all on your own.
Please talk to a trusted adult about this, and as I said before, you can always DM me if you need someone to talk to. No one deserves to be forgotten or to disappear.
That's it for now. Thanks to @goldenphoenix for such a meaningful response.
