Does one has to harm himself first for people to hear what he was saying was true?
a person was called " very emotional' and no one seemed to pay attention to what he was saying. His thoughts and feelings are ignored until one day he took his own life. Then everyone around him blamed themselves. Now, they noticed and valued him but too late.
I agree with you completely on what you are saying, I want to know the opinion of everyone here on this question
Thanks to Ali asking such questions
I disagree with this train of thought.
Harm yourself to impress me...........I think not. It is cowardly.
Hunger strike? You will not keep me from my supper.
Sail off of a building?...........I am firmly on the ground.
No, harming yourself, does not impress me..........it reads as, well, quite frankly, blackmail. There are laws against such acts.
The truth is...........I would have done more, had you made me more aware.
No...........I will not add guilt to my ongoing responsibilites. Do not attempt to bully me. Just do not. I am too factual;, and too action oriented. Honestly, I am TOO busy " doing" something, than to figure out your "inner message". Lay it on the line. THAT gets my notice.
We ALL have depth of feeling...........I handle mine, and I expect you to handle yours..............NO GUILT TRIPS TAKEN.
NO ONE will know of things untold.............
it is unfair and inhumane to hold us hostage to voices unspoken..........sad, a tragedy, heartbreaking..............but I will not be held hostage to your emotions..........I WILL NOT.
I think the answer is no, however from experience this is something that is hard to answer yes or no.
For people that have never had to deal with depression, anxiety, or very heavy feelings over a long time, it can be hard to understand someone who is in a depressed or suicidal state of mind. We live in a society where physical injuries are the only real ones. Many people do not realize that emotional pain can be just as hurtful.
People who have gone through those situations, or people that are very empathetic, can see the hurt, and feel how painful it really is.
On the whole, it depends on who you're asking to address the issue. Even some doctors will not take emotional pain seriously until it is, unfortunately, too late. The only thing someone can do is to keep trying for help, which can be so frustrating when no one will listen, and when someone is already feeling pretty low, being told that their problems are just "drama queen" or "emo" or "attention seeking" can be very hurtful.
TL:DR Version: It depends on who that person asks for help.
If we just interested in the others, 90% of us will not be here now.
We should not put in our mind that convincing others is our main priority, same time we should know that maybe we are wrong.
By time, even we will discover our mistake or others will.
It is sure nice to learn how people react to this question especially the ones that i do not know of in person.. I have been married to a minister for 30 years and the funeral services I had attended lately appeared to have these as one of the scenarios behind their deaths? ...The eulogies I heard made me wonder when it sounded like they are well loved and was a hero among the living? ..Why?..As a family, a friend, a community of caring people, we seemed to fail to notice these from the very beginning or maybe choose not to ?, are we afraid to talk that no one will ever care?, no one will listen or maybe we all have the same problem ourselves or just plain " mind your own business thing while I mind my own', sort of mentality.....I choose life and that does not only includes my own but the people around me as well. The profession I love so much...

What's a saying today, that you often hear other's say, that irritates the hell out of you?

I keep reading comments from Christians telling people they love them. What exactly does this mean? I said it a few times when I got here, but I was doing it because I knew it irritated the person attempting to be adversarial. I was laughing when I typed it, because I knew it would goad.I assume,...

Most people here don't know this, but I'm 90% deaf. Yes, that's pretty bad, however I talk fine and most never know it. Frankly it does not bother my personal life a bit. However,,,, Every time I go to the checkout at a store and get asked something, or get approached by someone, I shake my head...
