Dear Samantha,

What should I do if I don’t want to live anymore?

-Anonymous

Dear Anonymous,

The first thing I want you to know is that I’ve been there. I’ve been exactly where you are, even if I haven’t been through the exact situation you’ve been through, I have felt the way you’re feeling, and I have wished I were dead. That being said, I have also been through recovery. I’ve learned that nothing is worth taking your own life for. Wherever you are now, whatever you’re going through, it will pass, and you’ll be glad that you stuck around. Because it’s the best feeling when you’ve been suffering for so long and working so hard, and you realize one day that you’re getting better. If you have felt this way for more than two weeks, you might be clinically depressed. Do all that you can to talk to a doctor. I understand that situations sometimes prevent you from going to a doctor–monetary issues, a bad home situation, or even just fear of what you might find out–but do everything that you can to talk to a professional and find out if what you’re feeling is a medical issue. If you can’t afford to go to a doctor, talk to a councilor and find out about getting free therapy through the school. I also understand that not everyone wants to come forward, because it’s hard to take thoughts and feelings that you’ve been keeping to yourself and say them outloud to someone. But no one can help you if you don’t tell them, and trust me, you deserve help.

I know you’ve probably heard it before, but you can always call 1-800-SUICIDE if you need to talk to someone who will listen. And remember that, even if you feel like no one else in the whole world cares, I do. I promise, I do.

-Samantha
