I've been living with a stomach disease for two years straight, that's been confronting me at least several times a day, no exception. As a result I've lost half of my weight, and I'm stuck on a water-and-bread diet (Which still has me vomiting often).

What's your excuse for finding each day a struggle?

Death is final, it is inevitable, and it is conclusive. We fight it off till our very last breath to grasp at the joy of life.

Life can be shit, but that just means it is also beautiful, for without pain and suffering, peace and joy isn't as beautiful. Without the darkness, the light wouldn't be as bright.

Suicide is never the answer, for death can not change, but life can. If your life sucks, then change it. If you can't see down the road you're going down, go down another road. you can do this while you are alive, but never when you are dead.

Live, breathe, feel love, feel hate, but FEEL! and you know that life gets better, and our hardships are only paths to make us stronger!.

I love you bronies, but do not, i repeat, DO NOT GIVE IN! DO NOT SURRENDER! LIFE IS YOUR'S! use it, change it, make it something you want!

it gets better, i had a point of serious depression, where life seemed to go nowhere, but look at me now, the optimist, the bard, the thespian. I MADE MY LIFE THE WAY I WANTED! and you can too!

Listen, son, life is hard. This old soldier isn't going to sugar coat it for you because that isn't what you need to hear right now. Life is hard, and it's not going to get any easier. But that is no reason you need to lay down your gun and hide from everything. Taking your own life isn't going to help anypony soldier; not you, not your family, not anypony else.

Life is what you make it. Life is what you perceive it to be. Life might look bleak and you may feel you are slowly loosing control but in the end that's not true. Life can be beautiful, but in order for it to bloom you need to go through the hard times first. If you give up during the hard times you will never even get to try to enjoy the beautiful times.

Every soldier goes though times of doubt. Some more than others. But if you let that doubt seep through your mind it may reach so far in that you won't be able to get rid of it. Don't let that happen. Don't think about the wrongs in the past when you can think about what you can do to change things in your future. Every soldier has the power to change his own life. It's always up to you. But if you have a constant negative outlook on yourself and on your life there will be no chance to change it. If you accept that your life is controlled by the world and others around you, then it will be. Don't let it be.

Only you can change that. It will take time, and it will take work. But there can't be certainty without doubt. There can't be love without hate. There can't be joy without sadness. And there can't be good times without bad times. These times will pass, but only if you take charge of it.

Don't loose what potential you have. Make it into something.

Dum vivimus, vivamus. While we live, let us live.

Taken from the wonderful thread for cheesecake because I can't think of a better way to put it. This is my opinion on suicide.

There are those out there that understand what you are going through. I may be a bit new to this place, but I'm pretty sure that there have been plenty of others who have experienced their share of struggles, and I can bet you all of them came out strong in the end just like you will.~

We are here for you and we are all openly loving and understanding of your pain, but we want you to know that you don't need to end your life to stop your struggles because we can help you through them. We love you and you can be rest assured that all of this is true and honest.♥♥

Don't fucking do it.

Yes, life is shit sometimes, but that doesn't mean it can't also be beautiful. Most of the time, it is. We just sometimes forget that. Shit, I forget it all the time. What we have to keep in mind is that whenever we feel our worst, it can only get better. It's a bumpy ride, a series of ups and downs. But it'll get better, trust me. You can't kill yourself. There are people who care about you. If not in real life, then look here. We care. We want you to be here. We want you to be one of us. We love you.

Fuck shit. I hate my life. I don't feel like I have any direction at all and it's been quite miserable lately. But you know what? I'll get through it. And so will you. We're here for you. We'll catch you if you fall. And all of us, everypony in here: When we get knocked down, we'll stand up taller than ever before. Because that's part of being human. We fight to survive. Every day is a fight for survival. But we'll goddamn do it. If nothing else, then for the people around us.

Look. Don't commit suicide. I've said it before and I'll say it again. It's not worth it. Nothing good will come of it. We love you. We support you. We'll try and help you the best we can. And I'll be damned if we lose somepony this way. It won't happen. I hold absolutely no doubt in the fact that you are a wonderful human being and that your life is worth living. If nothing else, then do it for the people in here. We want you to stay. Okay?

I don't know if I should post, I'm not very good with words but damn. Lemon, you need me, you need everypony here. You can't think in something serious like suicide, that's not and will never be the solution for anything.

Tell use what's wrong. Maybe I'm just a person typing in a computer in an image board but damn that I will try to help.
Everything in you life can change. Happiness to sadness and sadness to rage and rage to happiness again. But you have to be strong and deal with those. We all struggle, you, me. Look here too:

Suicide is only good if your useing it as a gag on vid chat roulette. Actual suicide does terrible things to not only you but just about everypony you know.
Plus youd disappoint everypony including RD and pinkie pie
>> No. 2488065
Whatever you do, suicide isn't a good answer. Honestly, look where you are. This is one place where you can actually talk, and not be paraspriteed left and right. If you need to, do so. Look at the show, for just a moment. It shows that though life can be hard, it can always be better. No matter what you say, suicide isn't a good thing. I don't know what your religion says, or even if you're an athiest, but think about it. Somepony will care. People would cry for you. Not just people you know, look at those on here concerned for you. If you are really thinking about this, just try to look towards the bright side.

Oh yeah, forgot to post one of the most inspirational songs ever written and one of my personal favourites.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TywQYRAjLo4

You say you feel so down
Every time I turn around
And you say you should've been gone by now
And you, you think that everything's wrong
You ask me how to carry on
We'll make it through another day just hold on.

Cause life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow
And you're so far down
But you will survive it somehow because life starts now.

I hate to see you fall down
I'll pick you up off of the ground
I've watched the weight of your world come down
And now it's your chance to move on
Change the way you've lived for so long
You find the strength you've had inside all along.

Cause life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and you're so far down
But you will survive it somehow because life starts now.

All this pain
Take this life and make it yours.
All this hate take your heart and let it love again.
You will survive it somehow.

Life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and you're so far down.
Life starts now.
You've done all the things that could kill you somehow and you're so far down.
Life starts now.

Life is hard, every day is a struggle. But do you know what? It's fucking worth it. And it gets better too, however shitty you feel, it gets so much better. I've never contemplated suicide before, but I know what it feels like to be hopeless and to think that you will be trapped be despair forever, but I was so wrong that I can't even believe it. You have no idea how quickly or how suddenly your entire life can turn around, here's an example:

My freshman year of college, I was pretty much a shut-in. I lived far away from home and I had no friends. I had a couple people I said hi to in the hallways, and had a few conversations with my roommate, but that was it. I was miserable and lonely all the time. But then one random day, my roommate asked if I wanted to get ice cream with him and a few other people. Those 5 people that I went to Dairy Queen with are now some of my closest friends and I'm happier than I ever have been in my whole life

Moral of the story: Take your lumps from life like a champ and get through it. You have no idea how much good and happiness there is in the world for you to find yet. And we're here to help you too, don't ever forget that everypony here loves you and wants to see you be happy. By killing yourself, the only thing you're doing is eliminating your future happiness and robbing the people who love you of your presence. Don't you dare fucking do it

Hello, Lemon. Hopefully you'll get to read this before the thread is either pushed back too much or you forget about it. I want you to know that we honestly care about you and your well being, for which I feel I just must reply. If you are seriously considering such a serious decision, I think it's very important that you know that maybe it isn't the right choice. I honestly don't know what it is that would lead you to consider such a solution, but I do understand how stressing and overwhelming life can sometimes be. Yes, people in life can be stupid and obnoxious, and sometimes, it is those inconsiderate people that seem to have a grip on the direction of your life, but don't think this is always this way.

You always have control over the direction your life is gonna take, for as long as you live; every day, you can get up and do something to make your life better; talk to somepony new, try a new mean of transportation, even change your job or school if you really wanna do something radical, but out there, there's a world with incredible possibilities for you to enjoy and discover. Does it really seem to be a good idea to kill yourself when you have so much freedom available? Answering this question is the most important decision anypony can ever make, and if you want my opinion, killing yourself is a terrible idea.

Imagine you had decided you didn't want to live anymore just seven months ago, before discovering ponies, do you see where I'm going with this? There's beautiful things out there, but the thing is, life is always showing it's worst side, whilst getting to truly appreciate it's beauty needs some searching, but this shouldn't be disencouraging, in fact, it makes the good things in life much better, to know that through so much rubble and noise, there's such glorious things hiding.

Listen, just try to be reasonable with this choice, just as you can put an end to it all, you can also make it better, it is up to you to change if you really want to, just go out there and show the world you are stronger than that. I know you can, we all can.

>Pic related, it's me, hugging you, because I know you can do it.
>> No. 2488079
You'd put Rainbow Dash through that? That seems rather selfish of you. I know, I know, things get rough when it feels like the entire world has turned against you, but you know what? It's still selfish. And not only would you force poor Dashie to go through it with you, but all of us as well...?

No. You wouldn't do that. You know why you felt compelled to post here in the first place. You don't WANT to do it. Something may be trying to convince you that you're wrong, but you're not. You're always right. You're right in that you don't want to go through with it. You're right in that you want to be alive. You want to live, and you want to be happy, and you shouldn't let anypony or anything convince you otherwise.

Right? If you didn't want it, you wouldn't go around telling people about it. But you did, so there's still hope. And look at how much hope there is!

We all want you to be happy. We all want you to stay here, with us. Even if, for some reason, you decide YOU don't even care about being happy anymore, that's no reason to take that away from all of us! You know those ridiculously depressing sadfics that some people write? The ones in which somepony ends up biting the dust and, in the process, tears down everypony else's reality in such a spectacular way that even imagining it makes most readers break out into tears instantly? You don't want to make one of those come true. You don't want to force us to read the saddest non-fiction we've ever read, that we can't ever unread and that no one can tack on a happy conclusion at the end of to make everypony breath easier...



You know... We've entered a pact now, you and I. By telling me about your problems, you've got me caring and worrying for you. It's not the first time somepony's put me through this, so I can somewhat predict how I'll react to all of this. The most immediate effect will be that I probably won't get much sleep tonight, because I'll be busy worrying. It doesn't even matter that I have no idea who you are. You've gotten me invested enough to type up this entire post when I should be doing other things. You've made me truly and deeply concerned for you, and you have the power to do much more than that. You have the power to completely destroy me, and more so, many others around you. You also have the power to make me feel more relieved than I ever even want to be, and spare them the agony of absolute, irreversible loss and regret. Please, if not for your own sake, then for ours. Don't go about being a jerk about this, alright? I'd never forgive you. And I mean never! For all my life, I would never forgive you. I would never forget.

And you don't want Sketch to be hating on you!

Well I think I'm a bit late to the party.. But I'm here!

If you really are considering suicide then reconsider.. No matter how shitty your life might seem you are after all.. Alive!

You are a fucking miracle you realize that right? Imagine that just ONE! thing had not happened as it did all through history. Imagine how many things could have gone wrong through time which would mean your bloodline had not turned out as it did and ended up in you having a life to throw away.

Whatever is wrong suicide can never be the solution.. You are throwing away the most precious thing ever given to you.. Your short chance of experiencing this world.

So many suicidal ponies..But maybe the real difference just lies in that people are more open here?

I know several great ponies in this thread has already said it much better, but.. Lemon, don't you frickin' dare! Life may seem cruel and unjust at times, but trying to escape the pain through suicide is NOT the right approach! Live for tomorrow! If you feel you have the conviction needed to "end your suffering", then take that conviction and use it instead to go forward towards a future where you can be happy!

Honest response?

This is all a part of growing up. You have no idea how many times I've felt like this. And that was before all kinds of shit happened. It's very unlikely that he's going to do it. Suicide isn't planned, it's something you do in the spur of the moment. A brash decision. Those who really would plan ahead are clinically depressed people. I don't see lemon as one of those. He'll get over it.

Still, the support here is a good way of letting him overcome this faster. Which is also why I posted.

Personally, I would say no. People go through times of doubt and depression. His original post implied that he plans on coming back tomorrow. He won't wake up and do it. These things do not work that way. It's his life, and I'm confident he will be fine.

While it may feel like the right thing to do, interfering may make some things worse.

Dude, you probably shouldn't kill yourself. I've thought about it a couple times... but then I thought about all the cool stuff I'd miss. That got rid of those thoughts right quick.

You should also think about the people you'll leave behind. Not just people you know- lots strangers who have never met you will feel sad and terrible reading about a kid who thought death was better than what he had.

I know we all will here.

So don't do it. Join us, Lemon, here on Ponychan, and let's ride the bicycle of happiness and dreams off into the horizon of friendship.

I truly suggest you don't. Without any background we can't assume anything. This may make matters much worse.

But I can't. There's nothing I can say as The doc to help. It's gonna be a tid bit messy but I gotta say it while its fresh.

My name Is Kevin, and bronie all I've got, all that I can say to this is that Life is beautiful. That even while its bleak, awful, and a god-damned disaster it will always have the other side. The beautiful and breathtaking part of it that makes the shitty days worth it, the things you'll feel and experience. Why stop yourself from reaching those point by cutting a life, your life, the life of a bronie that we support and love, short?

It's a goddamn waste, a shame, and pointless. Don't be a fool. Don't be like my brother. It ain't worth it.

Gotta keep your chin up and remember no matter what Dash and everypony here would want you to not make that final choice. Yes, it's been said to death in this thread that suicide isn't something that should ever be mentioned lightly - and there are times when the darkness of this world overwhelms us.

But look at this Lemon, a collective, an extended family you've never met but are still here hours after the fact, some of us worried sick about you.

There might be horrible, horrible things going on for you, physical, mental, emotional, financial, who knows what all this crummy world we live in can come up with; but what I do know is that even as things happen, if you look hard enough, if you keep remembering "one hoof infront of the other" you will make it past that which darkens this specific point of your life and find everypony who was cheering for you waiting.

I know I'll be there.

Guys, I don't think you realize why they NEED to report this. lemon posted on a public website that he was thinking about committing suicide. If he did just off himself (pardon the term, but I'm not exactly in a "walking on egg shells" kind of mood), and nopony here reported it, this website could be held accountable for SOMETHING (I'm not entirely sure what, but I know there is accountably).

But, to be completely fair, we're also not even supposed to know who he is, right? Admins can track an IP, sure, but wouldn't that somehow be morally questionable if not illegal on its own? If he'd left his personal information here, I would agree. That'd be an invitation to step in and try to do something. But we're all practically anonymous here, despite our shiny names and tripcodes.

It's fine. We'll be fine. Lemon will be fine. He's just asleep, sobering up, and when he wakes up he'll step back in here to see if anypony cares at all, and then he'll freak out about us freaking out and then we can figure out what to do from there!

Man, this is a difficult balance to strike... sitting here halfway between jaded Internet critter and the caring person that I actually am. I agree it's nothing that should ever be taken lightly, but I also think there is such a thing as overreacting, even to something as serious as this.

B: Or we ignore this situation and wait to see what happens. In which case he will slightly helped or greatly damaged.

I want to tell you, pony, that life is worth it. Like you I contemplated suicide, and even attempted it. And though I don't know your personal situation, I just want to tell you that life will get better, I promise you. Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but someday it will get better. You need to cling to that hope with every single thing in your being, with everything you have. And sometimes it might feel awful, and sometimes it might feel like there's no point, but I'm telling you there is. You could have your entire life ahead of you, years and years and years, and you will be happy again. I love you, brony, as do the rest of us. Stay alive for us. -hugs-

Greatly helped OR slightly damaged? How about greatly helped or greatly damaged? There are cases where shining a spotlight on a troubled person does nothing but cause more trouble. Somepony can be on the brink of recovering on their own, and beginning to solve their problems and dissolve their secrets one by one - until somepony calls attention to it and blows the lid off the whole thing. Then the poor pony in question doesn't get the chance to deal with anything at their own rate, their friends may start acting strangely, family might start prying into personal business, they may get thrown into therapy that does nothing but stress them the heck out and robs them of the salvation they'd already found for themselves, and suddenly everything's a lot worse than it started out!

Like I said, up there, we don't know enough about the situation to justify taking action. I'm not saying that because I feel like saying it. I'm saying it because I have reason to believe that flinging yourself into a delicate situation can, and often will, make it worse! Lemon's already asked us for help. We've provided him with it. Let's not step over the line and intrude on his personal life, okay?

Dude, don't. Think about what the future holds for you, what life changing experiences you have yet to experience, also think of your family. I'm no good at explaining things, so I'll just come out and say it, suicide isn't the only option. You can beat whatever is troubling you. Take it from somepony, who has gone through the pain of a suicide. It's a living hell when you know you will never see your best friend/son/daughter/mom/dad/brother/sister, don't cause your family this grief. It's painful enough to hear somepony's plan for suicide, but it's even more painful to witness the grief that this stupid action causes many other people. Just remember this, even though life knocks you down, you just got to stand back up and make the best of it, don't throw your life away for something that can easily be resolved.

I know, I know. That's very noble, and I'm very worried too, but sometimes you have to step down and let things untangle themselves, even when it looks dire. Even if it's not all we CAN do, I think all we SHOULD do right now is have faith in Lemon.

Sometimes it looks like the only way to solve a problem is to grab somepony and throw them in a padded cell until you can talk some sense into them. If that doesn't help, then lots of drugs will! But often, you just have to let things... explode, and hope no one gets caught in the blast... With enough support, and a strong enough heart, something beautiful can emerge on the other side, rising from the ashes of its own remains. A newfound will to live, forged in its own fire... But that can only happen if you don't try to suffocate it or snuff it out. There are many situations where being too brash will just make things worse.

The fact that Lemon openly admitted how he feels is a good sign. He's willing to talk to us about it, so that means we DON'T have to throw him in a van and drive him off to the asulym. We just have to keep talking. We have to convince him that he'll be fine, and he can get through on his own.

You hear that, Lemon? You're my phoenix, now. I believe in you. Don't let me down!

I doubt I can say anything that hasn't been said here already. However, it bears repeating that suicide solves nothing. As far as I know, death is final. Once dead, there's no coming back. Why take the chance when you still have your whole life ahead of you?

As far as I'm concerned, the sunshine is always best right after a rainy day. By that I mean that when you get over this, life will feel sweeter than ever, or at least better than it's been for some time. And that's something worth fighting for. So keep your spirits up and remember that we're all here for you when you need it. Bronies do not abandon one another in times of need.

I am unskilled with words,but darned if I'm going to let this go by without saying something.

lemon,listen,you are obviously in a difficult place right now,life itself has become a struggle,and this has pushed you to consider drastic measures.But suicide is the wrong choice.it is NEVER the answer.

Life can throw some messed up stuff at you,but you must respond with nothing less than your best.you are strong,lemon.you can pull through whatever is making you consider this.and you know what? You'l be better for it,happier for it even. One day you will look back on these struggles and realize that,while in the moment it was nearly unbearable,that in the long run you are stronger for it.

I care for you and for your safety lemon,the world needs more strong people,and once you pull through this you will be stronger than ever. You would make Dash proud.

Son. Son. You listen to me. Put a face to my voice - I'm the person who you respect most; picture me - I'm talking to you.

Now I don't know if it's because you never said, Lemon, or if it's because it got lost in the oceans of support, worry and friendliness from the ponies here on ponychan, but I don't remember, and I cannot imagine why you would want to do such a terrible, terrible thing.

Clearly things are pretty well at the bottom for you now. You have to escape, son, you gotta get out. But that way out is not the way you think. So you want to kill yourself? Kill the world that you live in, and by that I mean screw it, and screw it all - get the fuck out. Travel. The world is BEAUTIFUL. Go see it. Get involved with it. Shake off the miasma of the life you lead, go and be reborn, start again. If you were willing to end everything then clearly you don't have strong ties to the life you lead - so go travelling.

Then, when you have seen amazing things, when you have stuff to tell people about, interesting stuff, amazing stuff, then you tell people about it. Tell anypony who will listen. Tell the people closest to you. Tell them why you did it. And I recommend telling a professional why you did it too. Then you can start to repair your life.

But if you're in a burning plane, you parachute out, and THEN you piece together the wreckage. But while you were parachuting you saw some fucking awesome stuff.

You don't use the flames to kill yourself.

I'm sorry, but I seriously cannot feel any sympathy for OP until he states a clear and proper reason to why he want's to commit suicide.

Call my cynical if you want, but if it's for something incredibly silly like "I got bullied at school for liking ponies" (or just bullying in general), I really don't feel sad for OP. Because then he really doesn't have his priorities straight.

Bullying is never a reason to commit suicide.
Actually, suicide in general is never a solution. If anything, it's going to cause more problems.

So if Lemon is to read this - don't do it. It's selfish, it's stupid, and it'll cause more problems than solve problems. And no matter the reason, suicide is never the way.

These sorts of threads ring way too close to home, as somepony who has survived several suicide attempts and years of clinical depression which has only gotten worse in recent months I have but one bit of advice I can give to anypony who is contemplating suicide.

Do not do it, life is an amazing thing no matter how you look at it and any sort of life is better than facing the dark. Not only that but you do not want to live with what can happen to you if you fail. My liver is failing, my arms are a mess and I am terrified of going outside.

Just don't make the mistakes I did, mate. It really isn't worth it.

Everypony needs to chill now. All we can do at this point is wait. Pinkie did what he thought he had to, and I'll stand by him for it.

1 of 4 things will happen now:

1. (worst case) lemon is gone.
2. lemon comes back on in a few hours and raises hell because we told the cops
3. we find out lemon did do something and the cops were able to save him
4. lemon comes back and is happy that we notified the cops because it showed we cared.

Personally, I believe we all have a right to out own lives, and how we end them. But you NEED to take a good hard look at your life and see exactly how your dissision will affect the people you know. I may not have a lot of sympathy for people who do commit suicide with out thinking, but I do for their friends and family.

I challenge you lemon, prove me wrong. Prove to me that you are stronger than you made yourself out to be. In other words, come at me bro.

Suicide... is merely a tool.
A tool which allows you to relinquish yourself of your responsibilities, your shortcomings, your bad side.
A tool that prevents you from feeling good about yourself. One that does not allow for happiness to flourish within you.
A tool that destroys whatever chance you may have for redemption. No other tool in the world has such a devastating effect on a person, and on the people around them.
This is a tool that you do not fool around with. This is a tool that even tools stay away from. I honestly hope you make the right choice, lemon, and give life a second chance.

Just to throw in a two cents... unless you're a psychologist or an expert of some sort, you should probably think twice about whatever long-winded advice you want to post; not trying to be rude or offensive, but it's usually a smart choice to try and get an expert on the matter

Not to rebuke the support you all are giving, support is good of course.

These inspirational speeches and words of wisdom are important and you should take the time to read them lemon. Im usually beaten to the punch by a good speech nowadays, But thats ok. because if you DO take the time to read these, you can see how much we care about you and understand that suicide,while it may seem like it, isnt the answer. You have so much to live for. A rapid succession of bad events or feelings that happen over and over again may seem worse because of bad things that happen over and over again.

Lemon i hope you read these mentioned posts.

First off: Sorry if i'm shitty at helping people it's hard for me to express myself but this is my 2 cents on suicide
Suicide would be a very selfish thing to do.
Think about all the people who would be hurt and confused if you were gone. Do you honestly think that there isn't a single person who cares?
If you do, then your fucking wrong dude because there are people who care about you and you better fuckin believe it bro i mean look the mods even stickied this thread!!
And it's not the just the community here that cares about you it's also your family and friends and even the strangers around you that would miss you..
You gotta take the bad with the good in life but good will always come through at the end so please.. Don't make the wrong choice

I can't believe I didn't see this thread... Lemon, having been in your shoes my friend, I promise you, things will get better.

!!Pinkie Pie, thank you for doing the right thing. Suicide threats such as this one are to be taken very, very seriously and you may have saved a person's life today. I'm positive Celestia will understand. Respecting privacy is one thing, but when it comes to suicide threats like these, taking action is entirely the right thing to do.

>>2488209
I've never attempted suicide, but as a pony who once suffered severely, for many years, from clinical depression myself, I know entirely what it feels like to suffer as you have suffered Lemon. I once often thought about committing suicide myself, and I've gotten close a few times, but just as Dash says, it isn't worth it. Darkness seems overwhelming when it's all you know... yet sometimes your freedom in this life is just one step away. There is a beautiful and wonderful future waiting for you: depression DOES end and it CAN be beaten! For me, freedom came suddenly. In the span of a month, seven years of depression were undone, just like that, as if they had never even happened.

Lemon, don't let the darkness overcome you. You are strong enough, and you have a bright and incredible life to live! Just be patient and endure: you will find your peace in this life my friend.

Just noticed this thread. !!PinkiePie, thank you. You did the right thing, and eventually Lemon is going to thank you. You just saved a life.

Lemon, you're probably pissed right now. With good reason. The police have probably come to your home, and now you've got all kinds of drama. Trust us, though...in a few years, when all of this is behind you and you've shaped your life into something that makes you happy, you'll look back and realize all of the experiences that you would have missed out on if !!PinkiePie hadn't cared enough to think about the long term.

I've been where you are. I considered suicide for many years, and once even made the decision to do it. It was set. I was going to jump off of a building, and was in the process of leaving a message for everypony that I left behind. A chance call from a friend who immediately realized that something was wrong was the only thing that prevented me from following through with it. I have one thing to say to you, though, Lemon: IT GETS BETTER IF YOU WANT IT TO. It's a lot of work, and life is never easy, but if you are willing to put in the effort to improve your life, you can be happy. Sometimes the only thing we can do is hold on and keep our eye on tomorrow.

I'll be thinking about you, Lemon.

I'll be thinking about you as well, !!PinkiePie. What you did took serious courage and I respect you a lot for it. You get lots and lots of hugs.

I'm going to tell you something I never told anypony.

I seriously contemplated suicide throughout my highschool years. I constantly saw myself with my wrists sliced open, laying in the bathtub with a blank expression. I kept thinking of the message I'd leave for my friends and family to find when they discovered me lifeless, and time and again I would run my finger over those veins, pondering whether or not I should open them....

And now? If I could go back to that time and see myself, I want to smack the shit out of me for thinking that. You know why? Because despite the shit I've gone through, I am still kicking and happy to be so. I happily embrace whatever the hell comes my way anymore. This message will probably even be ignored by most here, but I'll pull through it.

I'm going to tell you something I said in an RP, which greatly relates to anything in life:

You are constantly at the mercy of the foul weather that life can give. It can rain misfortune and blow the winds of bad luck around you, soaking you to the bone in despair.

But the thing you have to remember is that all storms eventually vanish. Those dark clouds of misery eventually go away, leaving you with bright, beautiful skies ahead.

Don't let the storm of life blow you away. Stand strong, stand proud, and tell that bitch to give you all she's got, because you are NOT, I repeat, ARE NOT going anywhere!

Hey. Hey you.

I don't know you, I don't about you or all your personal issues and I don't know what all you've gone through or not gone through compared to me. But I do know *exactly* how it feels to be in your position, and I would be more than happy to talk about it. Please feel more than welcome to email me (mouseover my name) and, if you want, give me your account name on any IM program, Steam, etc. and I'll be right on it.

And whether or not you decide to talk to me, I want you to know that you're a fantastic person and that anypony who doesn't understand, who insults you and thinks things like this are solely pleas for attention, just have never been in this place and don't get it--they assume you're something you're not or doing something you're not actually doing, and they just don't understand how hurtful things like that can be. So don't listen to them, at all -- that's a mistake I've made way too many times. Understand and believe that you're worth much more and there are many reasons you should stay around, not the least of which is that myself and many other people would love to get to know you and be your friend.

Lemon, I have to say something. I know, from my brief run with depression and knocking at Death's door that you are not in your best state of mind. Whatever happened to make you this way, you have to get over it. Think of all the things you will miss. All the opportunities you will give up. All the people you will leave behind. Be strong, pull yourself up, seek help from a friend or parent or whatever, but just try to make it out of this low point in your life, because it will make you stronger, and wiser.

I find it shocking, I really do, how quickly a community like PonyChan rushes to help somepony in need. Nice people in the world? I can see them right here, and there are far more out there who haven't even herd of MLP:FiM.

See Lemon, pal, these guys care about you. We know that, although you're in a sticky patch right now, it'll pick up. It gets better. It always gets better, so long as you're there to see it.

You like Rainbow Dash? What would she do under your circumstances?

I never got why people would kill themselves

So if you want to die, you obviously dont give a shit. Like, about anypony 'cause if there is anypony who loves you, you dont give a FUCK about them, and you dont care about hurting them, and if there is nopony, there's no one to give a shit about.

So, instead of killing yourself why dont you just get the fuck out? leave the basement,leave your house, leave the god damned country. Go on an adventure. Spend your time doing something awesoem like tracking down terrorists. Go be james bond, or Indiana Jones. Go fight a shark with a harpoon! Danger? Fuck that. The world is now your oyster.

TL;DR: Feeling suicidal? Good. Nows your chance to live.

Suicide doesn't make pain go away... Love makes pain go away, surround yourself with friends and family, people you love and life will be bearable though ANYTHING that comes your way.

You can't just end it all... I've thought about this so much, why work all this time to succeed in life and then quit? I may not know you or anypony you may have met, but I do know this ... the ones you love will hurt more then you do now if you go...

NOTHING can repair the emotional pain that comes with a loved one dying, not all the hospitals, doctors and nurses in the world can repair that pain...

I don't even know you but, I don't want you to kill yourself... Deep down everypony has a strong side, they just didn't find it yet... Only the ones that cannot take life as its given to them quit, so toughen up and take life one day at a time!

Don't you worry about what will happen tomorrow, or next week, or even what happened yesterday... What concerns you the most is TODAY and today only!

Just think... This problem of yours may be a way of toughening you up! You could be stronger then any of us...

Remember... Even in the face of certain death... Do not give up.

One of the problems that people run into when dealing with suicidal people is that they try to think of things logically. You aren't suicidal and don't understand why people would commit suicide, so if you try to see it through your own perspective then obviously it won't make sense. Suicide isn't a logical choice. It's the result of a deeply troubled mind that has become wrapped around the axle and feels trapped to the point that suicide is the only option. It's the end result of a downward spiral that hollows a person so much that they simply want to end it all. The person isn't thinking, "I don't like my life, so the best choice would be to end it." It's a lot more complicated than that.

When I was suicidal, I knew my family love me, hell, I even had an awesome boyfriend (who I still have) But when I would get in a suicidal mood, I would feel like, they were better off with out me, because even though they loved me and I knew that, all I ever did was stress their lives out and make them upset and things like that. That's how I felt about it, no matter how delusional or silly it seems. Which is does now, but then, not so much.

All I can say is this:

I guess I'm trying to say that our lives seem short and bleak. They seem pointless and cruel, but that's because we only pay attention to the shortness and the bleakness and the pointlessness and cruelty. In actuality, we are more than just a flash of light in a starless night with a new moon. We are luminous. We are the torch that shines out to sea, not just for the days that we have here, but forever. Our journeys will end, but at each ending, we can turn and look back at what we've seen, at the horizon that marks the curve of the earth, wipe that tear from our cheek, turn once again, and start the next great adventure.

Some of you may say, "But how do you know there is something more? How do you know that our life is more than a flash of light on an endless sea?" Truthfully? I don't. I don't know any more than you do. I don't know what will happen. But you know what? I know that I don't need to know. Nor do you or anypony else. All we need to do is hope. And that brings me to the next song: "Hope" by Rush. It's short and bittersweet, it's sombre but uplifting. And it's self explanatory. To be honest, I'm going to be a music critic for a second and say that it's probably the best song off Rush's Snakes And Arrows album. It pertains more to our lives than any other song Rush put on that album.

Back to life. We can hope that we are not a mere flash of light, and I think that most of us will. It gives us a reason to live each day. It gives us a reason to go out there and make mistakes and learn from them. It lets us be human. It allows us to experience our perfection. Then we will find that we aren't a mere flashbulb on an endless sea sailed only by ourselves. Then we can have the courage to look out at everypony else and find out that we are surrounded by light. Everypony shines out to everypony else, and that is the base interaction of our love for each other. We are literally surrounded by others in the same world, not isolated from everypony in islands of our own self-pity and fear, although it may seem that way sometimes. But again, you only have to look. Break the barrier, like Pinkie Pie.

And you know what? Song number four: "Surrounded" by Dream Theatre. I guess you can tell that I really like prog now. That's three bands out of four that are prog bands. I digress however. "Surrounded" really speaks to me. It's an anthem about love and about life and having the courage to throw the shutters away from the window to look out and see the light given off by everypony else to guide you, even if it may seem easier to lock the door and draw the curtains and pretend that the world never existed outside the little room we all have in our mind.

I wrote this because I know that you're out there, reading this. I know that my time wasn't wasted, because I know that you learned something from this. I know I learned something from this, and I wrote it. And, to be brutally honest, I'm flat out of words to put in this reflection. I'd just like to leave one final song for you, and you can consider this one my final gift to you… for now. I'd like to mention the song "Slow Marching Band" by Jethro Tull. It is a song about starting a journey after ending one. About beginning anew, even if you don't know what's out there. I'd like to end by reminding you that, not only am I here for you, but we all are, whether you know us or not. I'd also like to end by saying that this is what we do. You know who you are and what it means to be that. With that, I'm going to go to bed and go to Luna and say, "I love you," and go to Twilight and say, "I love you." But first, I'm going to look all of you straight in the eyes and say, "I love you."

Dear Lemon:
We all go through hard times every now and then, sometimes too hard. Sometimes it feels like there is no other way out. but let me tell you, if you have the power to end yourself, you definitely have the power to stand back up.
At the end of the day, it is YOUR decision to make, and only YOU can put a value to YOUR life. The moment you decide it's worthless, it's lost all value, and seeing how you came here first, I'd say you still value your life.
So do yourself a favor and do the smart thing. Stand up tall, smile, and say it out loud "I Will Live!" and don't worry about falling down again. We are your friends, and we will catch you when you fall. We will be there for you every step of the journey until the very end.

Dude. Don't do it. I've been there, feeling like I'm gonna try to kill myself, even tried. I've grown and become a better person since then. It's not worth it to commit suicide. You need to work to make things better, like this post here: >>2488029

Listen to the Soldier and listen to me. You have to take control, life isn't going to get better and suicide isn't the answer. It's the easy way out.

I mean, I had no friends, I was failing at school, had no motivation and no hope for the future. That was the low point. But remember, things get worse before they get better, so hang in there and take control, don't let your life get the better of you, get the better of your life, take control and make the part where it gets better happen, rather than ending your life in the low point.

It doesn't take much effort to make a thread about killing yourself; there's little risk for posting it since you can easily just use a proxy while posting. I'm glad they at least called the cops on him/her so that there's some real life consequences for your actions - that way, if he's really looking for help, he will get it one way or the other.

Although I'm not sure what the police can do with just an IP address - the ISP have those. Either way hope this turns out well.

Please please please please please don't do it.

I know life sucks. I should know. But there are things worth living for. If you can't think of anything, think of ponies. You don't want to miss the second season, do you? I know that isn't the best thing to look forward to, but it's the best i've got. I don't know you, i don't know anything about you. All i know is that ponies might be the only happy thing in your life. But we are always here for you. Don't forget.

I know that this is a horrible comparison to this, but it also is the best i've got. For the last few weeks, i've been Hearing voices, sometimes they will stop for a few hours, sometimes they will go on for days. But the only thing that's been able to help is ponies. anything to do with ponies.

Basically, what i'm trying to get at is that Ponies can help. Its that little piece of normal that takes you from reality for 22 minutes, gives you an escape.

Please please, make that your escape instead of suicide.

I wish I had paid attention to this earlier, but I can't change that now.I know that what I say probably won't matter, and I know this will probably sound cliche and stupid, but here goes: This isn't worth it. I don't know what 'it' is, but I can tell you now that suicide will not make it better. I have felt similar to the way you do now, I think, and I know that it can get better, even if it doesn't feel like it. I know that, especially, people can can make it seem like it's not worth it to go on. People can be hateful, people can be evil, people can make you feel like there isn't any point to your existence, and like there isn't any good in the world to prove you wrong. But there is. We, as in, all of us, don't want you to die. I don't know your name. I probably never will, but that doesn't matter, because I know that you're another human being and your life means something. There are too many wasted lives already. Please don't become one of them. You'll be leaving everypony else behind, and we'll miss you. I hope that you see this, and everything else that has been said. You don't have to do this.

If you read this, Lemon, Which I hope you do.
To quote, portal 2, "When life gives you lemons, Make life take the lemons back, I dont want your damn lemons, What am I supposed to do with these?" Point is, when life seems to be pushing you in a certain direction, or making bad things happen for you, make life take those damn decisions back! You are the one in control of your life, you have to keep fighting for what you want. Everyday is a beautiful thing, Everypony here loves you and will always be here for you. So just remember to give back the lemons, and make your own lemonade out of whatever you want.

This is why I feel so close to this community. I'm not spending as much time as I want to here, many probably don't even know me, but still, I feel like we all care for each other in a way or another.

I used to be somewhat suicidal aswell, falling it deep depression when I felt my life isn't going anywhere and I just don't have the strength to change it.

Yet, a year ago I decided to change. I had to realize that there are things I cannot change in life, but there is one thing I can. Myself.

It all depends on how you take things. How you feel inside. I'm again at a point where it seems a bit hopeless, but now I have no bad thoughts anymore.

I just think of better things, that each day brings new hope and new chances. I enjoy the small joys of life and somehow the world is brighter ever since.

We are no gods and cannot tell what the future holds. Throwing away the little time we are given on this world is not an answer to any of our problems.

I recall I used to struggle to stay strong. You don't have to. It all ended up with me hurting others around me to prove to myself I'm still strong, in a wicked way and slowly, I stopped caring for others, stopped caring for myself and even worse...I stopped feeling.

You don't have to go down the road I did.
Let it out, collapse and cry! No shame in it. After years of depression and apathy, my best, most beautiful moment was when I was reading some sad stories here on ponychan and I started crying. I cried coz I cared again. I cared for others, I felt symphaty, and I felt alive again. My cold, rock solid heart started pumping again.

After that point, I felt like I'm whole again. Sure people don't change in a moment, it takes time to heal wounds, to stand up tall again, but as weird as it may sound, I felt I have won. Faced myself, my weakness, the cross I am bearing.

Please, have faith. You don't have to believe in God or any deity. Believe in yourself. Believe in the world.
Once a friend told me one night "There's no God". And I said "Then we have to look after each other". And yes, there are people out there who care for each other and who will care for you aswell. You are never alone, just reach out your hand. I myself have been blind for many years and refused to believe that. I was so surprised that people I've pushed away and havent talked to for years called me and asked how I am. We met again and they cared.

Stay with us brony. We care.

Kind of late to here, and I'm really lousy at this, but I can't just sit by either. I don't usually share this sort of stuff, so make sure to read it all the way through, okay lemon?

Now, I can't say life is great...even somepony like me who has a life that looks pretty decent from the outside has issues. Everypony has their own special mix of suffering. Life hurts at times, sometimes even I wonder how "Hell" as it were, would really be any different than the kind of suffering that anypony already faces.

I've had bouts with depression, and it doesn't really ever fully go away. It can get better though, so that you don't feel depressed all the time. (this might not apply to you, like I said, everypony has their own special blend of suffering.)... But you have to be willing to fight for it.

In all seriousness? The way I get through most days, is just by saying to myself "I'm not gonna let something like this beat me! ...No way am I gonna give up!"... Even when I have times, when I hate this crummy world, or hate my physical body for all its problems and pains, or even worry about my lack of direction... Even with all that, theres still a part of me that likes something about this world, or some person who I'd miss if I moved on to whatever is after, or things I still want to do or learn...

No matter what comes or doesn't come after this life, it is the end of this experience, so if you're just going to have to start over again, why not go all out till the end? Whether you win or lose in the end...stops being important to you at least once its over, so why not aim for the best result? If you're gonna suffer whether you fight or not, whats to stop you from fighting? These are the questions that keep me going... In the end, I may just be prolonging my own suffering, but I refuse to give up hope for something better.

In the end, when you boil it down...Things work out, or you die. So, as long as you don't die, and hold out long enough, process of elimination says that things will work out in the end. Sure, it may be the logic of an idiot, but if it lets me win, or at least keeps me from losing... Sure, I'll be an idiot.

You know, I still think it's better if people let it out somewhere and if they have nopony else to, then it's better to do it here than supressing it.
What makes this community so wonderful is the level of love and caring. It's just heart-warming.

Let's not lie to ourselves, life can suck sometimes. Watching colorful animated ponies and their happy lives will certainly help with sucky moments, but reading how people try to help, care and give a hand is something that will last.

>>2488368
I have posted about this before. The morale of my post was, that even if it is fake, I want to care.
I don't mind if people exploit it, if they laugh at me or mock me for it, even if it will hurt me I will care for each and every soul out there who I think are in need of help rather than being the old cynical cold hearted man I used to be.
I will never go back there.

I know how you feel Lemon, I've felt suicidal in the past myself. I truly hope you can find joy again soon. I've said this in every suicide thread: Often people contemplate suicide because they want to feel relief from something that is bothering them, but if they do end their own life, they do not feel relief. Nopony really WANTS to die. They just want something to get better. Also, the great thing about suicide is that it's not something you have to do now or lose your chance, you can always do it later. The point being, as long as you are alive, things can always get better. You just have to give them a chance to do so. Besides, we're all going to die someday, so why rush it? Just enjoy being a human being while you can. You are a member of the most advanced, intelligent species on the planet. You are at the top of the food chain. You have a mind which is capable of so many amazing things. Please don't throw all of that away. Death is not the answer, brony. You will make it through this, we are here for you. We will support you and listen to everything you have to say, and we will try to find something appropriate to say back. We love you. You are important, to somepony in your life, and to us. We would all feel an immense sadness if you ended your own life. Please don't do something like that. You know you don't really want to. Nopony does.

Another thing: Every single person who lives or has ever lived, will or has at some point considered suicide. But most of the time, they quickly realize that it's a dumb "solution," so they look at other things. It's crossed my mind, and anypony here who claims it hasn't is a shitdamn liar.

So when it comes up in your head, laugh at yourself for thinking such a silly thought, and realize that next week you're gonna look at yourself and think how dumb you were to consider that.

Yeah, part of it is "white teenagers with REAL problems." You're right, when you break it down from that angle, it's absurd. The whole thing is basically a product of society.

The only issue is that somepony considering suicide is totally blind to the reality of the situation, and they are only looking at things relative to their immediate surroundings.

Or being a naive teenager. If you ever seen the pictures from the Balkan War you can very quickly see that children there lived in a completely different circumstances. Or look at Sudan, the genocide, and all the child soldiers there.There's lots of examples of where it could be much worse.

That being said, you can't make rational arguments with irrational people. I'm with what N said above, telling somepony that all they have in life is a cartoon show about ponies is not going to help in the long run. It's an amazing show and I love but this daily "I'm-sad-and-I-need-instant-gratification" thing is getting old. Anyways that's just my opinion. :>

I think the amazing thing about MLP FiM is that it can even get those of us who tend towards cold-hearted cynicism to start to feel okay about opening up our hearts and reaching out to others. Its as if all some of us really needed was to be told "Its okay to be soft, to be caring, to reach out to others."

If there is the possibility that I could save even one person just by reaching out to them, it doesn't matter if four out of five of them are just trying to hurt me....I'll still reach out, even if its just my own selfishness of wanting to be true to my own heart.

Lemon, this talk of suicide ends today. Most of us have been down that road, either in extreme cases of actual attempts at ones own life, or by simply thinking if the end came it wouldn't matter. But the fact is, your life isn't exclusively your own. Everypony you interact with is a part of you. Even if you have given up on yourself, they haven't. And it is not your decision to make. You owe it to everypony that stands by you to live.
There is something admirable about somepony who doesn't fear death. They have pushed past all instincts of self preservation and go against the core of nature. Most of us can't do this. But it's even more admirable of a person who doesn't fear life. Somepony who will refuse to be the victim of circumstance and rise up. Only a few in history have been able to do this on their own, but luckily for you, you are not alone. You have the full support of everypony here at the very least. And that is an amazing thing. You have your choice of getting feedback and advice from the community, or even one on one from a peer or mentor here. I'm sure anypony would be willing to talk through email. In short, Lemon, you have an army of friends and well meaning strangers to back you. I know you'll do well.

I don't know what to say. How can I? I don't know you're life, I don't know what you're dealing with. I don't know if you'll even take the time to read my message, but I'm going to type it anyway.

I won't talk about myself, because god knows what has happened in my life probably has no bearing on your own. But I will say that no good can come of these thoughts. If you think you're worthless, you're not. If you think no one cares, you're wrong. There is always somepony who cares. There is always something you can contribute. I believe in the potential of the human race to accomplish greatness. And I believe that potential lies in everypony, including you.

But if you end it now, you won't know what you're capable of. You won't know what good you can accomplish. You won't know the extent of your own potential. Heroes are made every day. Who's to say you're not one of them?

You are a member of the human race, the people who tamed the earth and irrevocably changed everything about life on this planet. You are a member of a species that is constantly evolving, that is constantly changing. Today, we are able to accomplish miracles with the push of a button, things that were only dreams thousands of years ago. Just being human gives you a lot to be proud of.

You have the power within you to shape the world around you. You need only believe in yourself.

I just don't see the problem with giving a virtual hug to somepony who might be needing help.

We are not giving advice in the way of telling exactly what to do. We are sharing our own experiences, how a bunch of us fought his/her own problems. Why does it hurt anypony to see some threads like these going on, I don't know.

What makes this fandom greater than any other for me is that many actually care for each other and not just fancy about how deeper they can get into their fandom by coming up with and discussing more and more ridicolous things about the show.

There are plenty of sites on the net, and plenty of boards here on ponychan, etc where ponies can have their "undisturbed" moments of fandom, I personally don't mind having some threads on /oat/
about people's issues.
>>2488394
The flaw in Maslow's theory is that there are plenty of moments occasions when it doesn't work.

Also, you can't go and tell somepony "[/]Hey man some dudes on the other side of the planet are starving, you should be happy that you have something to eat[/i]". It just doesn't work like that.

Uh, you do realize there are a wide variety of different image boards here...and as far as I can tell, only /pony/ is particularly supposed to only be for "talking about the show". /oat/ is like what they have on forums for talking about, well, whatever. While it may be a bit more of a place for being non-serious, I don't think this breaks any rules about the board or anything.

That said, if we had a /help/ thingy that might be a solution that would make everypony happy, as long as those who wanted to try and help checked there often enough.

If you are an average representative of what the people from /co/ are like...well, I'm glad this isn't /co/. While you may have good points or reasons for what you say...I don't like the way you say it. I know I have no real power of any sort, as well as being new here myself, but to say that absolutely "people also don't want to see that type of shit either", when there are those of us who say that seeing these threads and the uplifting responses is one of the things we feel is really great about ponychan... seems either willfully ignorant, or just like you're trying to force your viewpoint onto us.

True, things like this shouldn't be in /oat/

BUT

There is nothing wrong with seeking help from one of the few places on the internet where people legitimately care about each other. Sometimes, it's even better help than even a professional can give. I don't see any problem with this.

in this situation I realize the purpose behind keeping it in /oat/ (making sure lemon sees it)

I've been trying to figure out what to writeo n this.

And all I am going to say. Taking your life is selfish. You have so much great things you could do. Yes. You may have a bad life... but a lot of people have a much worse life but they don't kill themselves over it. Enjoy your life. Make something better of it. You have a great personality, I bet. And just wanting to end it is very silly of you.

I use to be like you. I always wanted to die or kill myself if everything was going bad in my life or my parents yelled at me for something I did wrong. It was dumb of me. I was acting like I had the worse. I had depression a lot. I still do. But I have better ways to deal with it. I have friends, family, God, and myself. We are your friends even if you don't have friends in real life or your family is not being nice to you at the moment.

I've seen too many suicide threads lately and it is upsetting me. Taking your life is not always an option unless you are old and you have a decision from having a sickness for too long that it's you die or live half alive for the rest of your life. Enjoy every single thing you have. Life is short.

Rainbow Dash wouldn't kill herself if she didn't win something or she was sad. She would come to her friends and people who LOVE her.

That is all. I'm out. This will probably fall on deaf ears but I said my piece.

trust me, i took down his IP address, did a quick google and found out the town he lived in, i called the proper authorities, they told me they have an investigator on the case. i gave them a link to this thread, and they did a quick lookover (with my guidance as to where to look) and basically, because he was waiting for the rainbow dash toy to come in the mail, they said it would happen no sooner than noon. If he is being truthful in that hes gonna wait for rainbow to show up, then the police said they had plenty of time.

Look, I'll be honest...
A few days ago, I had box-cutters to my neck. I spent half the day contemplating how I'd allow it to happen, but then, for whatever reason, I posted a thread on here. Now I don't know that reason for sure, but I do know this: I cared enough about this situation to at least bother with it, and that's what you've done too. I know you can make it through this if you can post about it, because you haven't lost all hope...
I want you to know that you don't deserve death. The people that love and care about you don't deserve your death. No one deserves that right now, because you're too good a person to be let go like this. You're strong. Strong enough to bear the bumpy nature of life so far, and I don't see why you wouldn't be able to overcome this; you've done so well so far!
Please, try to feel better soon. I love you. We love you. No one wants to see you go.
Please, take care.
>> No. 2488482
Dear Lemon,

I don't know when you'll read this (or at all), but I want to tell you something. Everypony here has had (or is going through) a rough patch in their lives, some more than others, and that's life. There is a special magic in the rough patches that really make you appreciate the smooth parts. Sometimes it doesn't seem like there's an end to the rough parts, but they eventually pass.
We may seem like faceless people posting behind a name, but we still care about you, because you came here. Love is something that springs eternal, and it is a rich spring of love we have here amongst the Bronies. Life is truly a gift we must treasure, for the loss of life is indeed truly sorrowful, especially when we lose somepony we love. But, from that sorrow we learn a better appreciation for what we have. I don't , want you to leave all your loved ones with that sadness, especially now, when life has only begun. I can only hope that you can see the compassion we have for you and your situation, as many of us have been in your shoes, and I hope you can forgive Pinkie for doing what he/she did to help you. It may or may not seem like a horrible act in the present, but I'm sure you can find it in your heart to forgive her further down the road. Just remember, there are a lot of people here who care about you, even if we never meet, know that there is somepony out there who does care about you.

I hope you find the peace your heart certainly deserves, and please continue in seeking in the help you need. We'll be here for you with all the love and support you could ever ask for and more.

Sincerely,

CrochetPony

These sorts of posts are really bad in general. We all have a right to contribute to the community of which we are a part. Not one person in this thread (who is a part of the community) is saying anything to detract from the community. We just think that things should be handled in a different way.

I agree that it's fine to save a thread of this nature from automatic pruning, and to make sure the guy sees the advice posted in it (to which end I have contributed).

>>2488447
I am curious as to if this is directed at me. I have not disrespected the guy, and save for that of an external origin, I haven't seen any of that in here.

I again recommend making another board, an /advice/ or /help/ board, for personal issues. I am 3 days new to this site, and I can assure you it IS a problem, one that might have crept up on the older members of this community (including the staff) without them noticing. Nothing I say in here is intended to do anything other than help.

My advice to lemon was blunt because I don't believe in the approach of sitting down and feeding him more rainbows and crap, I think that's a large part of the problem. I believe in grabbing the lad by the shoulders and giving him a good shake until he snaps out of this dangerous line of thought, to bring him back to reality instead of burying him under sugar.

And like I said, you did the right thing by contacting the authorities. But there is a bigger issue here than just lemon. I've been here 3 days and I've seen WAY too many threads like this already. Every one of those threads is a person whose life is in danger. It's a problem that seriously needs to be addressed.

lemon, look how awesome this place is. We may be strangers to each other, but we tolerate and love one another. And that includes you too. We love and care about you. If one brony goes down, it will make us all depressed, and it will be hard to recuperate from this. We do not want you to go down. We want you to be here with us, and no matter what, we bronies will be here for each other

I never got why people would kill themselves.

So if you die, you obviously don't give a shit. Like, about anypony 'cause if there is anypony who loves you, you don't give a FUCK about them, or hurting them, and if there's not, there's no one to give a shit about.

So instead of killing yourself why don't you just get the fuck out? Leave the basement, leave your house, leave the mother fucking country. Go on an adventure. Spend your time doing something awesome, like tracking down some terrorists. Go be James Bond. Go fuck up a shark with a harpoon. Danger? Fuck that, you were going up against 100% death rate before, you're being safe now. Fuck everything man the world is your oyster.

Sometimes I wish I was suicidal. I'd pull the barrel out of my mouth and point it in the air, start a revolution, LIVE. Move to Barcelona or Rome or Berlin, hit the bars, bang some chicks. STD's who fucking gives a shit?

And then when I'm done, maybe I wouldn't want to kill myself, 'cause I've seen how beautiful the world really is...

Pony here who has been at mental hospital 3 times by now, and i'm 15. Trust me, things could be alot worse.
Just to clear things up: I'v not been in the hospital out of my own free will. I have been diagnosed with depression 3 times. I don't feel depressed. I'v never ever tought about hurting my self, nor others. I'm the last guy who you would think that is depressed.
Now when that is out of the way, i'm gonna try to do something that i'm terrible at: Making others feel better.
>>2488003
I really feel for you. I have two phobias, one is Puking, another one is bees. I could not imagine living like that for TWO YEARS! You really are strong, and i can understand why you are feeling down, but suicide won't solve anything, it'll just make things worse.(I bet you'v herd that a few times by now.)
>>2488019
Wise words.
(at this part i realized that i'm far too lazzy to read ALL the replies.)

Just... Try to find something in life that you enjoy doing. I bet there is something like that there. I have plenty of stuff that i enjoy, and i think that has kept me trough all this crap. )over 2 years of my life in hospital, and how it has fucked up my life.) Don't think stuff too much and stuff.
I don't honestly know why i'm posting this, everypony is proboably gonna thin kthat i'm some sort of moron, but well, "haters gonna hate" like i'v learned along the years.

lemon, I have no idea what is going on in your life right now or whether or not you are reading this but if you are, I want you to listen carefully to me.
Life is cruel. It is unfair. Some people get ahead with no effort on their part. Others can work their hardest and just barely make it by. Life is one never-ending struggle. It is a bully that just won't let up. It will never truly let you have things the way you like it.

DO NOT LET LIFE WIN.

If you take your own life, that is letting it win. It proves nothing because life will just keep going along trying to ruin everypony else.

I need you to be a real hero to me and the rest of the world, lemon. Something very big is going to happen in the next few decades that I think is going to bring people closer than ever to taking life by the balls and telling it to leave us the hell alone.
If you look at the number of calculations per second that computers have been able to perform per $1,000 of value from 1900 (when they were mechanical engines) to today, you will see that computing power is growing exponentially each year. It is projected that by 2045, the growth will reach an asymptote. This means that in 2045, computing power will no longer be a practical limitation to us. More advances will occur in a month than in the whole of human history (likely because we will have handed this task to computers programmed to be more intelligent than us). This is called the Singularity.

Just think. We could download you into a computer. You could live forever in whatever world or worlds you want to. You could express yourself with pure thought, unhindered by physical ability. You could share your darkest fears and insecurities with an intelligence that knows you better than you know yourself.
This is potentially only 34 years away. And even if it takes more time or less time to realize it, you will never know whether we do or not unless you keep living.

But guess what? We don't even need fancy machines to get us through life. We have each other. We have friends. We are friends. We support one another when we are down and together we can take whatever life throws at us.

This is why we need you to be a hero to us, lemon. We need you to be an example to other people that life is worth living.
You aren't alone. Many people struggle with depression of some degree or another. You are in a unique position to help these people with their difficulties.
Even if you don't have it now, friendship and happiness are potentially just around the corner. You'll never know whether you missed the one thing that could make everything worthwhile if you end it now.
So please, lemon. Please help to demonstrate the magic of friendship and hope. People are closer than ever to one another. 50 years ago, the thing you are reading this on would have been considered a superpower in and of itself. You have the ability to make a difference in people's lives and have others make a difference in yours.
We, and by that I mean the whole world, just need you to stick around and help us because we intend to put on one hell of a show and we'd love for you to be right there on opening night.

I'm going to say this and only this to all my fellow bronies who are so actively against the suicide threads:

There is absolutly nothing wrong with reaching out and trying to get help. The fact that one is WILLING to seek help shows that they are willing to try and help themselves with getting better and in the end it could help save their lives.

Did we blow this particular thread out of of proportion? Maybe, maybe not., but unless you actually KNOW the person behind the post, any and all suicide notes should be taken seriously. Those who jest them might as well hand any serious ones their own death certificate, because by doing so, you help them to believe that nopony gives a shit about them and next thing you know, we have another body in the morgue.

Is this guy paraspriting? Maybe, but we don't know for sure, and I'm damn proud that the Pony Community went out of its way to show that, if this guy is serious, than we have nothing but love and kindness for him, and the fact that !!Pinkiepie mod contacted the right people about it is probably the best thing we could have done. Not only does it help this guy if the threat is real, but it also means that if the guy is being a total parasprite, then he'll get his due, and it'll show that, here at Ponychan, we don't mess around with crap like this.

TL;DR: Ponychan is a place of tolerance and love, so either love these threads, or just hide and tolerate them, because if you keep mocking them / hating on them, you'll eventually regret it.

Hello Lemon, my friend. I mean that friend part too: you are a brony and I've always said, new bronies are just old friends we haven't met yet. Whether new to the 'chan or new to me doesn't matter. You are a brony, and thus, a friend.

First, my apologies -- I usually gravitate towards /chat ... and thus missed this thread until recently. I'm going to give you a wall of text (a great many of my postings tend to run towards the "teal deer" end of things) but I do hope you will read it all. Some of it I've said elsewhere, some of it was advice given to me back in the day, but all of it is a gift from me to you. I hope you will accept it as such.

There are some important things here I think you need to hear:

I love you, my friend. I care about you. I don't want you to die.

I believe in your pain and sorrow and feelings of helplessness -- I've been there myself, and so I know how bad you have to have been feeling to be seriously contemplating this.

I have a statement I want you to contemplate, and then a couple of pieces of advice. These are things that were shared with me, and that helped me, so I'm passing them along to you.

Suicidal ideation is not chosen: it happens when pain exceeds the resources for coping with pain.

That's all. So you're not crazy, or weak, or a bad person because you feel (or felt) this way. Heck, feeling suicidal doesn't even mean that you really want to die -- it just means that you have more pain in your life than you can cope with right now. It's not a matter of being weak-willed, willpower has nothing to do with it: it is like if I were to pile weights on you, eventually the weight would become too much and -- no matter how much you willed yourself to remain standing -- you'd collapse.

So, when pain (of any sort: physical, mental, emotional) exceeds pain coping mechanisms, suicidal feelings are the result. What you've been feeling is an imbalance of pain vrs pain coping mechanisms. And that feeling is awful.

There are two things you can do to get through this:

1) Find a way to reduce your pain.
2) Find ways to increase your coping resources.

Both are possible, and, ideally, both should be pursued.

Now to the advice.

You need to hear that people do get through this -- even folks who feel as badly as you. Statistically there is a very good chance that you are going to survive this and pull through. I hope that this gives you some hope -- as hope is important.

You need to give yourself some distance between feeling and acting on those feelings (you've already done this by choosing to wait to get Rainbow Dash.) Just because you feel like killing yourself doesn't mean you have to kill yourself. It is very encouraging to me that you're reading this -- because it means that you've gone another few minutes without acting on the suicidal feelings you have. It shows that you can keep on living, even when you're not sure yourself if you can.

Also, remember, people often turn to suicide to seek relief from pain -- but relief is a feeling, you generally have to be alive to feel.

Another thing -- know that some people will react badly towards your suicidal feelings, either because they are frightened, sad, or angry. They may actually increase your pain instead of helping you, despite their good intentions, by saying or doing thoughtless things. You have to understand that their bad reactions are about their fears, not about you. But know that there are people out there that can help you -- that can be with you through the horrible experience of feeling suicidal. They won't judge you or argue with you, they'll just care and try to help. Please find one of them, soon!

You can try:

* Calling the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. It's toll free and available 24 hours a day.

* Check your phonebook (or Google) for a Crisis Center near you, call them.

* Call psychotherapist, or a close friend you can confide in.

But do try to call somepony You remember what I wrote earlier about "coping resources?" Just being able to talk about our problems with somepony is a valuable coping resource. It releases a huge about of stress.

In other words, you're clearly dealing with a huge burden -- please, my friend, don't make that burden harder by trying to bear it all yourself!

Finally, and (at this late hour) I hope, the only real part of this posting that you'll actually need, remember that suicidal feelings are, in and of themselves, traumatic. After they subside, you need to continue caring for yourself. Remember to treat yourself gently, for you are a child of the universe no less than the trees and stars -- you have a right to be here, and a right to be happy here.

Therapy is a really good idea. So are the various self-help groups available both in your community and on the Internet.

Now, I hope you feel a tiny bit better -- if for no other reason than knowing that I care about you enough to build this wall of words around you to try to help you weather the storm of your feelings. I wish I could do more for you, and I hope that you'll take my advice and seek help for yourself.

You are a brony, old friend. You are part of the Herd. We would miss you if you were gone. We would be diminished, for truly, none of us is as loving as all of us.

Your friend,

Loquacious

Yeah, it is always safe to assume OP is telling the truth.

We have had quite a few bronies admit suicidal tendancies lately, and I am glad that we were able to convince our friends to reconsider. Please listen to us, lemon. You cannot do anything to change your position after you kill yourself. All you will have achieved is dying as a sad person. As long as you are alive, you always have the agency to change your situation. Please don't do it. We love you. We need you around to make this community better. At the very least, do not make decisions rashly. Before doing anything, give yourself a good deal of time to think it through.

I think we actually went beyond that and showed that even if lemon was just paraspriting, we have nothing but love and kindness for him. I mean, reading through this thread, there are several posts that start or end with something like "I know you might just be a parasprite" and then start shoveling love, friendship, and kindness at him. It sort of sends a message of "no matter who you are, you will get love and kindness and you will like it."

I want it to be known that I detest the concept of committing suicide. However, in the context of this thread, I want to say why.
How can anypony think to take from this world something unique, something beautiful in that regard. I'm not an advocate for the "We love you, dont do it" form of helping, I prefer tough love. That wont do much good for this, though. So how about this:
See the file I posted with this comment? I give this picture to you lemon as a show of, even though I dont know you, because you are unique, how I feel you should survive. This picture was drawn for me by an ex of mine who is no longer with us because she took her own life. I feel that she would also feel this is a good use for her beautiful art, if it does help you feel better.

I'm not sure what I can say to help you make it to tomorrow. I wish I could say that I knew what you're going through, but the simple fact is no one can and will know since we have to have experienced what you're going through first-hand.

What I can do is tell you what I think keeps me going day-by-day. Many a time I have a hard time just getting out of bed each day, meself.

Personally, I have some unfinished business to take care of before I go. I have a cat I'm taking care of until she passes (she's 11 years old right now), grandparents that need care since they are in their 80's, a brother that's a little too dependant on others for help (that might be the longest stretch for me), and I want to see Big Ben before I go.

I lived a pretty chaotic lifestyle in my childhood years, so that's contributed to a lot of problems for me that I deal with today. They're not easy, and I can only imagine what you might be feeling at this time. If not for my unfinished business I probably wouldn't be writing this to you as well.

I guess my point is that there are still a few things I want to do before I meet good ol' Grim. There's only 1 shot to live in a person's life. There are things in this world that can and will make somepony happy, if even for a brief moment. What they are differs for each person, might be as simple as going to get some ice cream, or as complicated as working up the courage to see a major landmark, or sky-dive, whatever it is that would make you smile, if only for a moment. It's those moments I live for, and once I find them, I cherish them more than anything I have in the world.

I just want to let you know, Lemon, that there are good times, many short, some long, that are worth the time to go and find. It's hard, yes, but it's all the more satisfying when we do find those moments.

Your Rainbow Dash toy is a good moment to live for. Who knows, once you get it, there may be even more moments for you just like that. Once you go though, well, who can say there would not have been another one? The years are there, it's up to us to enjoy them for what they can offer.

I've seen a lot of these topics and for each and every one I've passed them without batting an eyelash at them.

I'm only here, now, as a promise I made to myself three years ago when I said that I would be there for anypony that ever seriously considered suicide. Well, here I am.

Now, you may have said your farewells to your loved ones and you may have written down your last words on a note of some sort. You may have made many faux suicide notes, I don't know, but I bet every night you tried to sleep you stared up at the ceiling and counted the lines or the cracks time and time again as you desperately wished to block out the pain that you were feeling.

Every second, every fleeting moment in time passing was just another instant for you to kill yourself but you didn't and you may not know why, you may even hate yourself for not doing it when you had the chance.

And I bet you spent hours doing anything you could to get that pressure off of you. And I bet you felt like complete shit the whole time. And I am willing to bet that the only reason why you're waiting for your Rainbow Dash toy to come in the mail is because you honestly believe that Dash is the only person in the world who understands you even though you're well aware that Rainbow Dash doesn't exist but it makes you feel better regardless.

I, me, am here to tell you that if you haven't already taken the plunge and that if you're lurking, reading this, or really are asleep that I have stared at the same black hole that you're staring at; I've gazed into that void many times, I did so for three fucking years, never thinking I'd ever get out, or see the "light at the end of the tunnel."

I want you to know that even though I don't know you, I know how fucking much it hurts to live. But that's life, life is beautiful and you know it can be beautiful. Whatever scars or baggage you carry with you is temporary, this life is temporary, but at least know that it's not forever. Nothing lasts forever, you have the ability to get yourself through this. All you have to do is take one foot at a time, just baby steps.

Now, you may be dead but I hope for you that you're not because by committing suicide you're robbing yourself of the life that you've built, of all the thoughts you had, and of all the dreams and emotions you've experienced.

If you don't care about your family, if you don't care about your life, if you don't give a flying fuck about where you're at, about what is happening in your life. If you don't give a goddamn about any of that, know this one thing:

I care, because life matters to me. You matter to me, know that; and as long as somepony cares about you, well, I think that's a pretty fucking awesome reason to go on living, don't you?

"All suicide threats should be taken seriously. However, the way he went about discussing it makes it sound as if it was more of a cry of help (which basically is what most threats of suicide are) and not that he deep down actually meant to kill himself. Plus, a lot of suicides aren't really planned out too far in advanced either, and the fact that he was waiting for a Rainbow Dash toy to arrive makes me think he wasn't... as serious about it as he might have been at a later time. Great call contacting the police though, but if they thought it was serious enough to bring him to a hospital, he probably won't give a reply for a bit of time. There is no use in waiting in drowning yourselves in worry, you've done as much as you could do. You've done more than most would do"

No that's fine! I was afraid somepony took my post the wrong way.

And another thing, to this "tough love" idea... it's good to want to help, but calling a suicidal person selfish isn't going to help much, and in general doesn't work too well anyway. You can say it's selfish to want to kill yourself and cause pain to others, but from their point of view, it could be seen as selfish-ness on the part of those who don't want them to commit suicide for their own happiness, despite forcing the person to continue their painful existence. In NO WAY am I advocating suicide, but just pointing out how they may see it from their perspective.

Everything above this, for the most part, is agreeable. This and below, you kinda aren't helping.

It does make me think of this, though:

"When life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade. Make life take the lemons back. GET MAD! I DON'T WANT YOUR DAMN LEMONS! WHAT AM I SUPPOSED TO DO WITH THESE?! DEMAND TO SEE LIFE'S MANAGER! Make life RUE the day it thought it could give CAVE JOHNSON LEMONS! DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM?! I'M THE MAN WHO'S GONNA BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN! WITH THE LEMONS! I'm gonna get my engineers to invent a combustible lemon that's gonna BURN YOUR HOUSE DOWN!"

Now this I'm gonna have to plead with you to stop. If people are giving lemon "tough love" then that's fine, I think it's good to get doses of it from all sides.

You have bronies telling him that "we care," and others telling him that he needs to toughen up and rise above it. If there are parasprites making fun of him that's one thing, but if people are actually trying to help him out by giving tough love then why are people getting so uptight about it?

I don't think it matters if the OP is a parasprite or not. Either way, this thread can be a great support for anypony feeling down. I hope it gets archived so that we don't lose all of this heartfelt advice and care, and maybe we can solve these problems before they get this far. Though everypony wrote this for Lemon (and we do care about and sympathize with your situation Lemon), it can apply to everypony

In the hopes that this thread gets archived and with the belief that the more advice and different (constructive) opinions the better, I guess I'll post my own experience.
I've thought about suicide a lot. Pretty much ever since I was old enough to understand what it was. I suffer from mild depression, I don't have much appreciation for my own life, I don't see the point in living, and I really just don't enjoy it. That's Life. However, every time I think about it, I always reach the same conclusion. It's not an option. The same adherence to logic that leads me to depression also prevents me from commiting suicide. I don't know how old you are, but I'm 20. I considered suicide the most at age 17. Don't you think there's a reason that the majority of suicidal people are young? Either it's some huge weird coincidence or it means that something usually happens, whether it be biological or social, that makes life more tolerable as you grow and experience it. At this time you/I haven't even lived half or even a third of our lives. How can we or anypony else be sure that it's going to continue to be bad. It'd be like quitting a book or movie a third of the way through because there's conflict and you just know it's going to have an unhappy ending. I made a promise to myself when I was in the thick of it that if I still felt the way I do now about life when I'm 40 or 50, then I can commit suicide. Until then, It's not an option. Although it pains me a lot; although it seems like such a long time sometimes, you/I have to bear through it because logically, emotionally, or however you look at it, it's not a good answer .
There are other reasons I have as well, but most of them are already present in this thread or will be added. To Lemon or anypony else that has hit hard times, just please really think it through from all angles and trust in other people's advice even though I know it seems like no one could possibly know what you feel like.

There's a difference between sugar coated lies and trying to sound sympathetic. I'm sorry, but those "stop being a whiny bitch" "man the fuck up" posts do nothing for the majority of people who are suicidal, and considering the community this guy is expressing himself to, I think he qualifies as the kind that doesn't take to that kind of talk.

I'm not saying that it doesn't work, because I know damn well that it does when that form of thinking is used on certain folk. But there's a time and place for stuff like that and this doesn't feel like one of them. But I'm not gonna bash your post too much, because you seem to have good intentions.

First of all, I would like to apologize for the length of my last post, but I don't regret it (The length was required to fully express myself).

Secondly, I think we should cut down on the bickering and allow all opinions that aren't downright paraspriting. I'd like this thread to be able to be archived for anypony to go to for support. Lemon and the people who read this aren't going to stop at one "tough love" post and call it quits.

Yeah, you didn't go up in a mansion, but they gave you the best life they could afford, and the second that last bit of life tickles out and your lungs cease to breathe…

They've fail the most important task that they will ever receive. They failed to give their child a life that’s worth living, and that's a failure as long as they live, of themselves, is unforgiving.

Hey.

Hey guys.

Wake up and see that this thread has deteriorated way past what it originally was. So much hate and petty name-calling.The state it's in would make ME kill myself, if I was on the edge. And that's the opposite of what it's for.

How about we just ignore the parasprites, quietly report them, and let the mods deal with them- QUIETLY, !!Pinkie Pie. I appreciate your fighting the good fight, but it's only stoking the fire.

Last post before I continue my lurking, I promise, because now I'm being a hypocrite.

To the mods floating around out there: I'm sure it would take quite a lot of effort and I know you mods are always really busy, but I think it would be a great idea if after this was all said and done; some of you could archive this thread and delete everything that isn't constructive advice, so we can have a permanent "depression advice" thread instead of having to repeat the same thing time and again.

I know it may sound spammy of me, but I wish that all of the ponies out there that even think about suicide would watch this movie. It was a powerful movie that gave me a good reason not to commit suicide. Sure, it may be kinda chritianponyty, but it did represent some of the aftermath of suicide pretty well. There was a guy in 11th grade who committed suicide at my school. Completely tore people apart when they herd the news. There were groups of people crying everywhere after school. Needless to say, please don't even try suicide. There are people who care about you even if you don't think there are. Everypony goes through struggles and some harder than others. We just have to live our lives the way we can and accept that life can be a pile of pony crap, but why do we need to make it stink for others too?

Meaning no disrespect, but -- as a counter to this general "tough love is good" argument: neither the American Association of Suicidology (an American organization founded in 1968 under the auspices of the National Institute of Mental Health and specifically devoted to suicide research aimed at preventing suicide) nor the Mayo Clinic (a non-profit world-wide medical care organization) mention the sort of "tough love" being advocated by some here as a productive activity when dealing with suicidal individuals.

The AAS article on: "Understanding and Helping the Suicidal Individual" ...

http://www.suicidology.org/c/document_library/get_file?folderId=232&name=DLFE-30.pdf

... specifically states "be non-judgemental" ... "don't lecture on the value of life" ... and "don’t give advice by making decisions for somepony else to tell them to behave differently." Telling somepony you think they're being a wuss and they should man up because life is good flies in the face of the expert's advice.

While the Mayo Clinic article "Suicide and Suicidal Thoughts: What To Do When Somepony Is Suicidal.[i]" ...

http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/suicide/MH00058

... specifically states "be respectful and acknowledge the person's feelings" and "don't be patronizing or judgmental." Telling somepony to pick themselves up by their bootstraps and just get over it is not respectful, and is quite patronizing and judgemental -- again, exactly what the research out there says [i]not to do.


By the way, both the AAS website and the Mayo Clinic section on mental health problems (specifically suicide) have some good resources both for those who are feeling suicidal and for those (like us bronies) who care about them and want to help.

The point I'm trying to make here is that while the tough-love / man-up approach espoused by some may work for a few individuals in particular cases -- as a general rule, those organizations that have spend decades and celestia knows how many hours of scientific work researching these problems have not found those approaches to be helpful when dealing with somepony in a suicidal crisis. To the contrary, such approaches usually are harmful.

In other words, the professionals who help millions of people worldwide deal with this crap everyday think the tough love approach doesn't work. Decades if data say so. So while I appreciate that those espousing tough love want to help, and I get that they're helping by offering what (in their personal experience) helped them, the fact that it actually helped those bronies was a statistical anomally 'cause usually it doesn't.

TL;DR Poster being replied to is wrong. Well intentioned, but wrong. Science says so.

I see it gets late, and my tag-fu grows weak! Further, it seems that some of the people I was hoping to address are (fortunately) no longer part of the conversation. While I hope that my post above winds up being helpful -- if nothing else, by helping us know that there are resources, and help, out there both for those going through a crisis and those wanting to help our friends in crisis -- should it be deemed a distraction, I will in no way take it amiss should it (and this post) be removed!

As I've said before, I think the mods here are great -- and I leave the matter in their extraordinarily capable hands.

For Lemon -- we love you dude, we want things to get better for you. And that's going to take help and work. But we've got your back through it.

For everypony else -- I'm so glad that you care enough to want to help a brony! You guys rock!

I've been avoiding this thread for a good while, manely because I've been afraid I was going to post something nasty. But I'm going to be as absolutely nice as I can;

Suicide is one of the easiest things for a human being to do, but at the same time the most selfish. No matter how many problems are weighing down on your shoulders, no matter how many horrible people you are having to deal with, it's simply not worth it.

Because, after all, think about it for a second. You hate this world so you want to leave it; let's assume for a second you're religious. Suicide is a cardinal sin, and more or less is a one way ticket to whatever realm of eternal torment you'd like to select from that rainbow.

Now let's assume you aren't religious. In that case.. What's left for you then? A cold, dark empty void. Nothingness. Nonexistance. Think about that; not even the good things in life are left. You might try to say "there are no good things in life," but that's a load of bullshit. You enjoy some things no matter weither you want to admit it or not.

When I was young I was frequently bullied, beaten up, you name it. I had a myriad of psychological problems, and my parents solution was to medicate me. A year or two ago, my parents split up and I finally made the decision to stop taking that medication.

Immediately side effects began to set in. I felt horrible for months; even after I overcame the powerful effects of withdrawal stemming from medication i had taken for going on fifteen years, I found myself frequently in a horrible mood. More than once, a thought gnawed at the end of my brain; "You don't have anything to live for, just quit."

And in some respects, I really don't have anything to live for. Even now. But every time that little thought entered my brain, I cast it out; it was stupid. What was there to gain from it? I don't know what lies beyond the realm of death, so why do it? I'm not strong-minded... But I'm not that weak. I don't hear that thought anymore.

Suicide is stupid. It's selfish, quick gratification that in the end really brings none, for the ultimate price. I don't know you; I don't know if you're strong, weak; But get help. And I mean real help beyond all these strangers on a forum about fucking cartoon ponies.

Beat this.

Although I try not to judge people by their desicions, to be honest I think that life is a priviledge, not an obligation, and there are some things in life that are worse than death, I have to say that Im impresed of the care and love that you gave to OP and others who were in the same situation, so no matter the outcome of this story, be assured that all of you did the right actions, including the mods, so dont feel guilty if this ends bad, once again, Im proud of you ponychan

Hey Lemon, I've been there before.
I've looked at myself and wondered what the world would be like without me. I've stared at the blade of knife, tears in my eyes, wondering why I shouldn't do it. Every time, I stared in the mirror, I knew I was going to soldier on through another day because I knew I was loved. I didn't have any real friends and my family to this day barely knows who I am, but there is love, nonetheless. Every day, I am grateful that I chose to live another day.

Look at yourself, bro. You are loved. You are loved by everypony here, and I as well. You're not a stranger to any of us, you're a brony. We will stick together and love each other through everything that the world has to throw at us. Life is worth it, Lemon, it truly is.

I don't want to comment about Lemons situation. Don't even want to touch the subject. I just hope the homie comes out all right. Joke or no joke. Real Talk

What I WILL comment on is how the Mods are handling this. !!Pinky, you my nigga right now. Real talk, cuz. I mean, before all my gang shit, I was a moralfag, and what you did makes me SO fuccing proud of you right now.

To have to MAKE that decision MUST'VE been tough. And your worried, and your scared and you probably feeling a bit sicc too. But yo, you real G in my book cuz, I tip my fuccing hat go you right now.

And the other Mods as they assimilate into this thread, you guys are doing it right. Keep it craccin.

Like, I can't even put it into words how I feel about you !!Pinky. FUCC that "Its just teh interwebz" bullshit. You are a real person who disregarded internet reality to save a REAL life. That, my nigga, makes you more human than ANY motherfuccer I EVER banged with.

I'm sorry to joke, but it's how I cope with sad/stressful situations, it's gotten me into the trouble honestly. I never mean any harm by it.

Lemon, don't do it. If you...do...it will give everypony here, and everypony one you've ever known...lemons.

And no amount of sugar can turn those impossibly bitter lemons into lemonade.

Don't give us lemons, Lemon! Let us give you our sugar. Let us help you turn your lemons of life into lemonade, Lemon!
