I know it hurts. I know it does. Thank you for listening. Please listen a little longer.
I know you're looking for a way out; you're looking for relief. You won't get it this way because relief is a feeling and you can't feel anything when you are dead.
But, I have some really good news for you. Most people who want to commit suicide, don't. Your chances of surviving is high.
I know what you really want isn't to die, but to be free of pain. You feel out of control and this is your way to get it. Other people can help you get that control and help you feel better and you don't have to die. A lot of us have been where you are and have survived and we can teach you how to survive to, and even thrive. You have the ability within you to overcome it.
When someone wants to kill themselves, it's because their coping abilities are outmatched by the pain they are feeling. It has nothing to do with being strong, okay? Almost everyone has felt like killing themselves at one point. And again, most of them survive.
We are going to help you get more coping abilities so that your pain, in time, will be outmatched by your ability to cope with pain and get through it.
Just promise me that you will think it over and you won't kill yourself tonight. I will stay with you, but promise me you will be alive tomorrow morning.
P.S. this is hard to do one-sided because most of it is actually just listening to the person.
