This website is like a suicide hotline but with text chat instead.  I would appreciate it if you guys helped spread the word.

Guys, seriously. Signal boost. I needed this the other night, and a few weeks ago I was talking with someone who needed it. This is the best freaking thing ever. 


I am so glad I found this. I hate calling hotlines. this is perfect, everyone must know.

A reply to someone that believes suicide is selfish and cowardly

its not cowardly or selfish.
you have NO IDEA what the person is going through. 

in no way is it selfish, in fact it is selfish to want someone to stay alive because of how it will affect you, or the ones that love them. to endure pain in your own life for someone else’s happiness is hard and i can’t imagine it being selfish for someone to give away everything they have

if someone feels so much pain in his or her life that they want to end it, i hope you don’t look down on them as cowardly or selfish but instead you should understand that they went through so much suffering to want to never live again. to never grow up and have a family. to never live their dreams. to never see their friends again. to never be able to do whatever they wanted to do.

hands down it is brave to talk to someone and ask for help, but how about this? It is cowardly not to listen to someone. It is selfish to put off someone’s feelings as invalid. it is really fucking hard for people to ask for help because PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO LISTEN

and YES you need to reach out- but for fuck sakes it is the hardest thing to do…how about help out, how about listen, how about encourage people to talk about killing themselves

because the stigma about asking for help is from the problem of people not wanting to listen
