not just followers, everyone.
I’m here if any of you need to talk<3
The best part is, this post actually does something, it offers support, unlike one of those useless “reblog if you care” posts.
The average high school student has the same levels of anxiety as people put in mental hospitals in the 1950s.
Over 25% of my year group has self harmed recently.
Some of my best friends at school cry themselves to sleep because of the pressure of school.
I’ve talked to people considering suicide and having mental breakdowns because of all the work they have to do and the high expectations.
So don’t you dare tell me that there is nothing wrong with our education system.
I’ve seen a lot of posts on my dash tonight about users who are threatening suicide, with other Tumblr members posting in effort to try to get ahold of them. I think you all should see this:
IF THERE IS EVER A TUMBLR USER WHO HAS POSTED A GOOD-BYE MESSAGE, SUICIDE NOTE, VIDEO, OR ANYTHING OF THE SORT, PLEASE FOLLOW THIS POST.
1. Scroll to the top of your dashboard.
2. See the circular question mark icon at the top? It’s the third one over from your home symbol. Click on that, and a screen similar to the one in the picture will come up.
3. Where you can type in questions, the box with the magnifying glass at the top, type in the word “suicide.”
4. Click on the first link that shows up. It should say, “Pass the URL of the blog on to us.”
5. Type in the user’s URL and tell Tumblr admin that the user is contemplating suicide and has posted a message indicating that they are going through with it or will be attempting. Hit send! Tumblr administration will perform a number of actions to contact the user and take the necessary steps to prevent the suicide.
TUMBLR: THIS COULD SAVE A USER’S LIFE. PLEASE DO NOT IGNORE SUICIDE THREATS.
Reblog this to keep other users aware. Suicide isn’t a joke, and neither is someone’s life. If you didn’t know this, someone else may not, either. Pass it on.
I actually had to do this once. She lived.
Most Shocking Moment:
1. Beyonce’s Lip Sync Performance at Inauguration (44%)
2. Paris Jackson’s Attempted Suicide (33%)
3. Lil Wayne’s Death Scare (16%)
A lip synced performance won for “most shocking” over an attempted suicide and a death scare?
Well. Nice to know where the general public’s loyalties lie.
In Shenzhen, Guangdong, China, a sixteen-year-old boy was standing on a bridge, threatening to jump off and end his life. Hundreds of onlookers watched in horror as he refused to cross back onto the safe side of the guardrail. Police had arrived and were talking to the boy, but no one could get through to him.
Just then, Liu Wenxiu, a nineteen-year-old hotel waitress, was walking home from work when she saw the boy and knew that she had to do something to help him. Wenxiu had once been suicidal herself, so she knew how the boy felt. Telling police that she was his girlfriend, the girl managed to get close enough to talk to the boy. She shared her own sad and difficult life story, listened to his, and showed him the scar on her wrist from where she had tried to commit suicide herself.
“He said he’s hopeless, ‘so don’t waste your time to save me’. But I told him, ‘I’m not saving your life, I just want you to realize how silly you are being. Look at me, I’ve been there and I’m now here,’” Wenxiu said.
Finally, the girl was able to lean in and give him a hug, and then she unexpectedly gave him a kiss, as well. Police were then able to take the knife that the boy was holding and lead him back over to the safe side of the bridge.

The second you all can actually PROVE 42 people killed themselves because of that documentary, I’ll believe it, but until then I’m gonna think you’re making that number up. I highly doubt that many people would kill themselves over a documentary.
If it’s true though, I’m sorry, and I feel sad for the people in question. But if it’s false, which I’m pretty positive it is, you’re a sick person for MAKING UP 42 SUICIDES. Like, what posses someone to make up a LIE about a suicide, much less 42 suicides?
If you fake committing suicide just because you feel like a certain group of shippers is being betrayed in a false light, then you’re a sick human being.
No, scratch that. If you fake committing suicide for ANY reason, you are sick and demeaning the people who actually have those problems.
I see nothing wrong with people who are anorexic, bulimic, overweight, gay, straight, cut, suicidal, smoke, don’t smoke, drink, don’t drink, Christian, Satanists, smart, dumb, etc. Anyone should be allowed to do what makes them happy and comfortable. Just because you don’t agree with someone’s choices in living doesn’t mean they need help or are wrong in any way. If I want to cut myself, I will, and if I want to drink until I’m dead, I will, and if I want to have sex with every person of my gender in a ten mile radius, I will. Peoples’ opinions should not dictate how you live your live.
I’m not going to tell you not to have sex with people, but I do think you should consider getting help with your suicidal thoughts. I don’t think you are a bad/wrong person, and obviously you don’t have to listen to me, but I also don’t want you to die. And I’m pretty sure there are more people out there who don’t want you to die either…
I’m reposting this because people keep changing the source
