Why are you doing this to yourself? Do you like who you’ve become? It’s only making things worse! Why can’t you see the truth? Do you think this is going to solve anything? These are some of the things I’ve had to say that no one should have to say to their best friend. What are you supposed to do when your friend is slowly killing themselves on purpose? It is always hard to see a friend go through this. My best friend struggles with depression, drug abuse, and binge drinking. He uses anything and everything to find an escape from life. These things make him feel good and forget about everything in the world. He doesn’t care about life anymore. He stopped listening to my pleas begging for him to stop. He doesn’t want any help. With five known suicide attempts what am I supposed to do? I don’t want to look like a terrible friend, but I don’t want to watch him die. It takes a real friend and courage to make the right choice. The best anyone can really do is to never give up on them. Tell them how much you care and how much others care. Show them that there is more to life than drugs and alcohol. Help them find their true potential. Tell them to never give up on life for all good things come to those who wait.
