It doesn't have to end like this


The lovers Romeo and Juliet, Guilty ruler Adolf Hitler, NFL former Steelers player Terry Long. What do all these victims have in common? The answer is suicide.

Suicide is NOT the way out. Suicide hurts not only the fact you're not around anymore but it hurts you're loved ones also. Their pain will not be as harsh again as you passing away to Suicide. Reason? Because they will feel responsible for you're death. They will also blame themselves for not being able to say something to prevent it.


-*rolling eyes, big sigh, eyes watery* "I'm fine."

-"I don't want to be here anymore."

-Being mopey.

-Not talkative.

-Sad looking.





Why would teens with their whole lives ahead of them decide to kill themselves? It's a question that burns deeply inside of parents, brothers and sisters, friends, and strangers when a teenager commits suicide. Nobody will really know why some teenagers do it, because we are not that teenager who took their own life. We do not know the feelings they felt, or experienced exactly the same situations.

Most teens who survive suicide attempts say that they tried to kill themselves because they were trying to escape a situation that seemed impossible to deal with, or they were trying to escape feelings like rejection, guilt, anger, or sadness.

What causes these feelings? Well, the kinds of problems that teenagers face may be the complete opposite from adults, but the problems are very real to the teens that are facing them. Sure, taxes, groceries, and gas money may be a stressful problem to parents and they may think that teen problems are nothing, but honestly to teens their problems are huge.
