Re: TW- what’s holding me back from suicide?

@Bananatime04 your teachers will probably not tell you this, and your school definitely won't. But: your well-being is more important than your homework.

 

My suggestion would be sort your homework into these categories. 

•Probably just there because our teacher had to give us homework

•There so we can practice a skill we already know

•There so we can practice a new skill

•Part of a small assignment/ test

•Part of a big assignment

Do your homework when it is healthy for you to be doing homework.

When you do homework, start from the bottom category first.

You might not even get to the homework in categories further up. That is okay. You are more important than grades or homework.

Re: TW- what’s holding me back from suicide?

Thanks @Timy_leaf but most of the homework is like actually assignments, essays and long work sheets that need to be done and we only get like a week on each thing and as soon as it’s done there is something new.. also we don’t get given like hardly any time in class to even do half of these things so it’s just so much pressure and I can’t quit gymnastics because it’s my life.. it’s one of the only things I look forward to now and if it was gone then I would have nothing. I have no hobbies or special skills or whatever because gymnastics is just everything to me.

Re: TW- what’s holding me back from suicide?

Hey @Bananatime04. How are you doing?
Haven't seen you around the forums lately.

I also realised that I have levelled up to a star contributor like you.

Re: TW- what’s holding me back from suicide?

I’m doing ok I guess.. I feel like I’ve had a lot of stress taken away over the past week as my assignments have just reduced to none!
Oh shit i forgot I am supposed to be talking to my counsellor like right now.. I’m so sorry
Good job for the star contributor! I don’t really know what it means but I feel like your happy about it?? So good job!
Sorry I haven’t been talking on other threads lately that’s probably why you haven’t seen me.. I just haven’t been at the right state to be supporting other users. Sorry
It’s good to hear from you tho!

Re: TW- what’s holding me back from suicide?

Wait half of it’s just been deleted???
@Taylor-RO did you move it to another thread?

Re: TW- what’s holding me back from suicide?

Hey @Bananatime04, I haven't moved anything at all. It appears you have two threads with the same title. It could maybe be a glitch? How do you feel about making a new thread anyhow? Both of these threads are quite long. They have moved away from the topic of conversation which is totally fine but we try to avoid diary like threads - it can be confusing at times. I could even move some of your more recent posts about school/assignments into a new thread, if that helps? Maybe you could even comment in the high school support thread? I think you would have a lot of experience and insight to offer the community. Sometimes it really helps to hear from others in a similar position Smiley Happy What do you think?

Re: TW- what’s holding me back from suicide?

Oh I didn’t know that @Taylor-RO! I’m so sorry
I’ve actually just got on top of all my assignments so I’m going good at the minute but I’ll have a look at it after I talk to my counsellor.. I actually just missed her when I went to get a drink so I have to wait again!
I might make a new thread but I think I’m gonna make it about things that have been triggering me lately.. like my best friend feeling the way I have been feeling and being open about it is so hard to hear for me Smiley Sad

Re: TW- what’s holding me back from suicide?

I feel the same cause I got held back n my school and supposed to be graduating next month and thinking of all the ideas I could've had done. I feel like if I was anyone else they would kill themselves. If I'm continuing to feel like this for the next two days I'll call it a life and pull the plug and kill myself hate myself

Re: TW- what’s holding me back from suicide?

@Gatluakhey Heart
I’m so sorry that suicide has even been a thought of yours. I know it’s not easy but I really want you to know, I’m so proud of you. Not only are you still here, but you reached out and have opened up to us about what you’re going through. Both of those things are really hard for a lot of people to do and you are incredibly brave. A lot of people have been stabbed in the back by COVID19 so please know you aren’t alone. We are all in this together and if you ever need help with anything, this community will be by your side the whole way Heart I know suicide may seem like the only solution right now but trust me, it’s been a consideration of mine for over a year and I finally realised that it’s not even a solution really. You are loved. Although you are a new member here, you are part of this community now, we love you and will always lend a helping hand. Have you heard of the quote “suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem”? Hang in there, you’re not in this alone and you leaving this earth will not solve your problem, it will pass it on to your loved ones. The fact that you reached out and told us here what you’re going through, tells me you still have a little bit of hope. Is that right? Everyone has their lowest times in life (a lot of people all around the world are right now) but you will bounce back stronger and happier than before! I know it’s hard but if you give up, how will you get to see that? It will just take time.
If you feel as if your mental health is getting in the way of any other aspect of life, it is okay to take some time to look after yourself and get back to those things later.
When you said “ I feel like if I was anyone else they would kill themselves.” that was also something I thought to myself and I really beat myself up for this reason because I thought it was unfair that I had to suffer when I knew someone else wouldn’t have made it that far. But guess what, you are you. You are not anybody else. You are stronger than that! Suicide isn’t the answer

Can you please do me a favour, and keep going? If you ever feel like you want to end your life or you have absolutely anything on your mind that’s bothering you, you can reply to this post and I will be here almost instantly or you can press the “@“ and write bananatime04 Smiley Happy I know how it feels to go through what you’re going through, but I’m still here, I’m stronger and I know you can do it too. There is hope Heart

I’m thinking of you! You can do this xx
