OH.. SO because you suffer from depression, you think you are an expert, and because I don't have that issue I cannot have any valuable insights
I never claimed it is impossible to understand if you do not have depression yourself. I claimed you, specifically, do not understand.
I think there are folks who have decided to hear what they want to hear and believe that the world is out to get them.
Hey look! More minimizing. That totally demonstrates you understand depression. Also, your attempts to make it about me and only me continue to demonstrate that you just do not understand.
Besides, all I said was that folks thinking about killing themselves should seek help.
Actually, you first attacked this hypothetical suicidal person for "The pain you leave behind for your loved ones".
Your entry was not "Seek help". It was "You're a terrible person who is going to hurt the people you care about". That is why you are not qualified to deal with this issue.
TELL somebody who can help you.... There IS help out there if you ask.
If you want to start to understand, go re-read the part about depressed people know this and do not need this advice.
The thing you have to remember is a depressed person has utterly zero drive. They have thoughts like "I should kill myself....meh, too much effort". (As an aside, that's one thing that makes drugs like SSRIs dangerous....they can solve the "too much effort" part.)
As a result, telling a depressed person that something out there somewhere can help them isn't going to do anything useful. If anything, it reinforces the sense of being "broken".
You have to make it take more effort to avoid the help than to receive it. How you do that is entirely unique to each person's situation and your relationship to them.
