I didn't even realize that she was that depressed, until I
receive that call from her mom telling me that she had killed
herself. She was my best friend, and now I would never be able
to talk to her again. The only way I can visit her is by starring
at her grave stone with her favourite flowers covering that dirt.
If only I had seen the signs; maybe, just maybe, she would
still be alive.
Teen suicide seems to be a common thing in society today.
Every day a teen takes their life in a desperate way to get out
of the life that they feel is so bad. Instead of seeking the
help they need, they avoid it and take the easy way out. They
never consider the consequences of their actions and the affects
that it will have on the people around them. Teens that consider
suicide are usually depressed and you may or may not see the
signs. A teen that is depressed has many of the following symptoms
loss of appetite, closed, quiet, lack of interest in things.
Teens who are feeling depressed should seek help wherever they
can, before they do something they will regret. It has been proven
in some cases that a teen who tries to commit suicide wants to
live, but they end up dying because of what they did to themselves.
Think about this for a moment you are a teen that has just swallowed
a bottle of pills, you now realize that you want to live. You
are lying on the floor struggling for each breath, then at your
final moment you shed a tear and wish that you had asked for
