Is it normal to "think of" killing oneself?

When I was depressed, I would think of committing suicide, though I didn't work it out. When I talked about it with my friends, I'm so surprised that almost everyone has thought of it before. Is it really "normal" for people to have thoughts of killing /hurting oneself?

Pinky,

Yes, suicide does enter the minds of most people at some time(s) in their lives. And many people spend more than a few moments thinking about it...some days, weeks, even months.

In a world where we are thinking, mortal creatures, we are forced to think about our inevitable deaths (both naturally, and unnaturally).

Some people get a feeling of freedom or coping, just by the KNOWING, that ending one's life is an "option?".

Of those people who think about suicide (even think seriously about it), very few actually decide that it's going to happen.

It is important, as you have done, to talk with people about your thoughts/feelings. While many people do feel uncomfortable listening to these ideas, it's still important to find SOMEONE whom you trust to talk it through with.

do you feel up to telling us your thoughts about suicide?

I never would have believed I would ever have come to the point of deciding to take my life prematurely. I didn't think we were capable of making such a decision.

My experiences have taught me that death would be a welcomed calm, quiet place. For some people, planning your own death is just inevitable. If people have the right to take away your rights, then you have the right to take away your life.

I definitely agree that it must be normal to think this way of course few of us would ever take that ultimate step. It is the way of the world at the moment what on earth is there to look forward to and who can we really depend on.

Hmmmm....is it a crime to think or feel? Should one be arrested for how they are thinking. I think it's the act that is actually the wrong. Sometimes the 'thinking about it' is what helps make us rational about it. My kids can make me pretty mad and frustrated at times...sometimes I 'feel' like punching them. Do I do it? NEVER!!!! I don't think I'm abnormal or bad or wrong to 'feel' this. I agree with SC 100%. I think it's great that you have people that you can talk to about these feelings. It can really put things into perspective.

thanks all... U know I always thought that I've "problems" thinking like that... Luckily, that's pretty "normal".

But to say the truth, sometimes, thinking too much (of killing myself) is troublesome, it hinders normal life and will make me feel gloomy all the time ...

Endingit,

Your email sounded like you’re thinking about or have decided to end it all?

From my personal experiences and with others who have thought very seriously about suicide - after more consideration, it’s been decided that it’s not a good solution.

Please keep in touch here, talk with people you know, and get more feedback! Two good resources that you can call anonymously and for free are:

1) Boys Town Hot Line: 1-800-448-3000
Provides short term crisis intervention and counseling and referrals to
local
community resources. Counsels on parent child conflicts, marital and
family issues, suicide, pregnancy, runaway youth, physical and sexual

2) Covenant House Hotline: 1-800-999-9999
Crisis line for youth, teens, and
families. Gives callers locally based referrals throughout the United
States. Provides help for youth and parents regarding drugs, abuse,

Tell us more...
