Suicide or Seeking Attention
6 months ago · · Suicide,
We’ve all seen and may have fell victim to excessive use of the internet and more directly, social media. We turn to social media to express Our opinions, talk to friends, and publicize our accolades and ever our failures. It is a new norm where mental health falls victim or flourishes at the hands of the internet.
Earlier this week I saw a musical artist take to social media to state something like “I’m goin to commit suicide”. In my opinion by doing this I believe that this was not a cry for help but a cry for attention. No doubt that she was in a dark place, it just wasn’t dark enough for her to take her life.
I have personally been in a place where I contemplated it, planned it, but never did it and especially never posted about it. I did goto therapy. Those who truly feel as though they have no hope and that is the only option do not publicly make an announcement because it feels as something almost “normal” to them and justified. I’d like some feed back or opinions please. I want to hear opposing or supporting point of views please
