I Know My Thoughts Of Suicide Aren't LogicalSuicideI Know My Thoughts Of Suicide Aren't Logical<div class="ExternalClass270A5BCD2D644254B67BCFAD4F5CDD49"><p>​<span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3">I know that these thoughts of suicide that I am having aren't logical but at times I feel like it is the only option I have other than running away. I told someone that I loved them and that I had conflicting feelings and I poured my heart and soul into this message and know they are ignoring me. I know how utterly helpless I sound right now but I just cant seem to walk myself off this ledge to safety. </span><br></p></div><div class="ExternalClass879ECBA82C4045AFA299FADB394EEAE4"><p> <span class="ms-rteFontFace-1 ms-rteFontSize-3">Relationships are complicated and have the potential to be really messy. It definitely sounds like the most recent turn of events ended up being rather confusing and frustrating for you. At the same time, it also sounds like everything is very recent and might still be developing. When something like this happens, it can be really helpful to take some extra time, take a step back from the situation, and let things happen on their own for a few days. Of course, doing this is easier said than done but giving your mind a chance to back away from a stressful situation by focusing on other things in your life might be the break you need. Consider devoting yourself completely to school work, starting a new hobby, or focusing on your physical fitness.
