Question: I feel I want to die…Is this normal for a 15 year old?
For the past, goodness knows how long, I’ve had these waves of sadness which I am oblivious as to where they came from. They come as a down, anchoring feeling(weighing me down), and I cry at least twice during these times. They come unexpectedly, and I really can’t stress how much I don’t know why they happen. However, recently, I’ve started feeling as though my life is utterly pointless, school is stressful (im in my last year, ), and I heard college is the same, and so is getting a job. we never get a break from stress and hardships so I think, what is the point in staying alive if all that’s coming my way is this unrelenting sadness and stress? In short, I want to die. Suicidal, sure. I don’t have the means to do it, however, leaving my friends is something I’d never want to do, but I’ve been told to put my happiness before everyone elses, and this seems to be the only solution. Is this normal for a 15 year old to be feeling?
1 st thing is that ..i want a promise from you that you will not commit suicide at any cost.
there are worse situations for other people than yours and god has given each one of us some sort of sufferings in vrious ages.
even though you are 15, there is a whole lot of beautiful life waiting for you with wonderful things to happen. do what u enjoy most,listen to movies, freak out with friends, go on a weekend holiday.. drink..disco… and see that such suicide feelings are very negligible..thanks
When I was your age, I felt exactly like you do. At times I was feeling down, feeling sad, I felt I had no purpose and there was no future for me. But I can assure you, it is temporary. One day things are going to turn around. They did for me. They will for you. Bet you anything, there are plenty of fun things that you can do right now to cheer yourself up. Go ahead try to do something fun. It’ll be good for you. The other thing I would like you to do – I don’t know where you live, or what school you go to, but I am sure there is a school counselor, advisor, teacher or person that you trust and can talk to. Posting on this site was a great idea you had. Talking to someone at your school, church, community center, or health center will be even better. Go ahead call someone today and set up a time to meet. Once you meet them, post again on this site and let me know how it went. D. 🙂
It can be normal to feel this way. Suicide is not the answer. I’ve been in your position. I tried ending my life but it didn’t work. If it had I would have missed out on so many amazing things. Things that I didn’t believe could ever come true. Yes schools stressful and so is college but it’s also rewarding. I’m in college now and I feel accomplished when I finish papers and get good grades. You need to find your happiness and it’s not from suicide. Suicide only passes your pain onto someone else. I know from experience that my family and friends were hurt very much with my attempt. Things will get better. Don’t ever lose hope! Find something you enjoy doing and do it! That’s what helps me. Please don’t try to kill your self. You will miss out on so much joy and so many people will be hurting. You deserve to live. Stay Strong
AT THE AGE OF 15,THERE ARE LOTS OF HORMONAL CHANGES OCCURING IN YOUR BODY. THESE HORMONES ARE DIRECTLY RELATED TO YOUR MOOD DISTURBANCES. THERE ARE UPS AND DOWNS IN THE LEVELS OF HORMONES IN OUR BODY, THAT MAY CAUSE SUCH FEELINGS OF COMMITTING SUICIDES.
THESE VARIATIONS ARE ALWAYS TEMPORARY AND WILL GO AWAY IN THE COMING FEW DAYS. TILL THEN HOLD ON…MOVE ON..
