It's news stations and people that think the exact opposite that ruin lives and force us into suicide.
You're kidding, right? Isn't there an old saying about sticks and stones? Suicide is a choice, a poor one, but one that an individual makes on their own. Granted, some people lack the proper tools to deal with certain issues and for them, suicide might seem like a legitimate way of dealing with an issue. However, this does not absolve them of responsibility for their own actions. No one and nothing drives a person to suicide; people simply make bad choices. To assign blame elsewhere is a cheat and a luxury of those looking for a digestible reason for the inexplicable. When responsibility for a death rests with another person or entity, it is called murder. By definition, a suicide is the murder of one's self.

"Get out"? What do you know about death that leads you to believe that it is an escape? There are people who spend their lives running from an issue, never knowing that the only true escape is to turn and face their demons. Once you die, how is that possible? Would you really want to be haunted forever by something you can never fix?
just ask my dad, he's setting in the ground right now
Are you really so sure he would still choose suicide if he had the opportunity to do things differently?
h*ll ask me. i often find myself alone in my room staring dow the pistol i stole from my ex-boyfriend.
And while you do that, think about this: running never solves anything. So the choice is clear: stay and fight, or cut and run. At least if you stay, you have a chance to defeat whatever hounds you. If you choose the ultimate path and run away, you'll never be free of it.

And to agree with something someone else said earlier, do something about your grief already. All the energy you spend sitting there feeling sorry for yourself could be spent working to overcome the issues you complain about.

I'm not trying to denegrate you or minimize the horrors you've experienced, but you need to stand up and face this thing. Who we are is not defined by the things that happen to us, but by how we react to the things that happen in life.

I wasn't exactly complaning mate, but okay. I actually do believe that my dad would choose to kill himself again if he had the chance, he hated me and my mom and most of all he hated my brother, Tripp who killed himself last year.

I think you are good at giving advice, but your wasting it on me because i'm never going to change. by the way, i kind of like the way the gun feels against my head. The sudden rush of adrenaline you get from just holding it there, feeling the cold against your head.

I'll stop now because i'm rambiling, but thanx mate.

go get help outside the internet and never come back until that help actually works. You can take this as a joke or not if you want but all I know is my advice is great whether it's funny or not O.o

You know what mate? I have been broken since the moment he walked out the door, i don't even know what i bloody did okay. i just got released from the hospital for slitting my wrists okay, and guess what it wasn't an "accident" like i told Dr. Richardson. i am just this shell of a person since he's gone.:(

People are walking around my school wearing shirts that say "No More Emo! Kill Tugg!" They didn't even spell my sodding name right okay, it's either Tug or Tugger!!! Why can't they just understand me? Why can't people unserstand me? Why am i so bloody different then?

*Thinks quitely to himself before crying*

ABC 4 Investigation: Emos exposed

ABC 4 News is sounding the alarm about a teen phenomenon sweeping the nation. Its something we found most teens know about, but few parents had any clue of. Its called "emo" culture.
"Emo" is an abbreviation for emotional. Part punk, part goth, emo kids celebrate sadness and pain. Psychologist Judith Zimmerman tells ABC 4 News, Part of the guiding philosophy of emo kids is pain. That's the sub-current.
Our news team began their study of emo culture on the internet, where we quickly found hundreds of sites dedicated to teaching kids what emo is and how to be it. One site instructs, dye your hair black. Style it in the gunshot wound and never be happy.
Happiness is a sin to emo culture. In a state where the number two cause of teen death is suicide, experts say parents need to know emo culture and understand it.
Not every child who looks emo may be in to cutting themselves, dark poetry or talk of suicide, says psychologist Judith Zimmerman. Some of these kids may just be in a phase. Its important to tell the difference between a fashion statement and a commitment to a lifestyle. Parents need to understand the deeper meanings of why their child might be drawn to emo culture.
WHAT THE F*CK IS THIS??????!!!!
wow, are they JUST finding out that theres a style called emo? thats quite sad. yep can't get anything past them. when I read this it reminded me alot of the 90's when the church, the news stations, and the schools made a big deal about goth culture. Oh well its good to see that at least we're still keeping the media on their toes. Part punk? part Goth? the only thing that emo has in common with punk or goth is that a large majority of both the punks and the goths can't stand emo. lol. whatever. It'll be like watching a puppet show. Should be entertaining. anybody want popcorn?

This is ridiculous! Anybody ever see the movie SLC Punk? wow they werent kidding when they were talking about a conservative mormon stronghold.

First off, people have been cutting themselves longer than emo has even been a style, people have been wearing black longer than emo has even been a style, and so what if someone like Macabre. We're in a gothic forum I'd think It'd come pretty standard to most anyone in here.

"We've never seen anything like this before." what the hell are they talking about?? they said the same thing back in the 90's and the 80's.
