Suicide is a tragic reaction to someone’s stressful life situation but it can be prevented. Many people feel that there is no way to solve their problems and that suicide is the only solution left for them. Many of the symptoms before committing suicide are, talking about suicide. They might say things like,” I’m going to kill myself, ” I wish I were dead, or “I wish I hadn’t been born.” They also might find ways to kill themselves, they might go buy a gun or pills. The most common thing they do is withdraw themselves from everyone and just look very sad. They might start dropping out of things that they love, like their hobbies, and they might also start being less motivated or eating less. 

The many causes of these are suicidal thoughts, which prevent people from coping with problems they face. I feel like people should be more aware and know the signs of suicide to be able to help those people having suicidal thoughts. Many suicide attempts don’t actually kill people and they have to suffer serious injuries that can have a long-term effect on their health. Knowing this fact can help save someone’s life. If you yourself are dealing with suicidal thoughts and want to attempt it please call 988.
