This is going to be a bit of a rant but i'm just trying to clear my head. I hate being a teenager. Everyone assumes that just because i'm a teenager i have nothing important to say and I'm completely disregarded.

But more on to the subject I'm tired of un-grateful teenagers. When a few weeks ago my friend told me she was suicidal, i tried to bare with her and get her through it. Even though she has nothing wrong with her life i tried to convince her why she should be happy. Now another friend of mine told me how she hates her life. And thats when i snapped.

Keep in mind these two girls have everything that anybody in the world could want.

They have a good family life

They are both decent looking

They have friends

They come from wealthy familys

Anything that most people in the world would die for... and yet they are ready to kill themselves over something as trivial as there love life isn't going good, or little Suzy is being a bitch to them...

And so after a few weeks of this i told them that i didn't care anymore and didn't want to hear it. I listed the above reasons and they called ME selfish!

and i know its horrible to say but if these sort of people carried out there empty threats... i don't think i'd mind as much as i used to

I agree. Being a teenager as well, I get looked over often as well. And I hear those silly "my heart is a black abyss and I want to go kill myself" things often too, though usually not from my close friends. I try explaining to them that there are children in backwards places like Sudan that would kill for a life like theirs, but they just whine about how bad they have it...

I think that people in developed societies have trouble imagining what it's like to have no idea not only whether you'll have anything to eat tomorrow, but also whether you're going to get blown to bits by a landmine/shot/etc.

That said, you posted this in the PIT, so don't expect much in the way of intelligent answers.

Don't even bother, they just want your attention. Good move on telling them that you don't care! They're just mad because you aren't giving em' any attention.

Maybe there's things going on at home? I.E. Abuse, alcohol/drug abuse sexual? Although this may not be the case, alot of abuse happens in families where you don't expect ti.

Although some people may seem to have perfect lives, they really might have it rough. Some people just can't deal with stress in any shape or form. Don't try to convince them that their life is great, just listen to what they have to say. Well, if your their friend. All they're looking for is someone to vent on.

If you don't know them or honestly don't give a flying ****, then tell them to piss off. But don't assume you know everything about their lives.

Although that could be true i have known their families for a long time now. I'm not gonna assume i know everything about their lives but i know enough to know that they have nothing to complain about.

And its not like i didn't let them vent for the past few weeks. They came to me for help and i did my best until finally a recommended them to a councilor.

They both refused to go and so thats when i said **** it

i think its narrow minded for teenagers to be of the "i hate my life, this sucks" attitude, but it is also narrow minded to assume that because one is a teenager that there aren't any real problems or feelings going on it their heads

Ok, now back to the topic at hand. I know exactly where you're coming from. Being "depressed" and "suicidal", for some reason or another, have become trendy. They label themselves as the above because they are nothing but attention whores and just want a little sympathy. You wanna know the best way to combat people like this? Ignore them. It'll drive them up the fucking wall.

Believe me. The things they are crying over are things such as, "I hate my life because SO and SO just WONT LIKE ME! Maybe its because i'm ugly ((("

Or

"Suzy is being so mean to me! She didn't even pick up my call!! I think she doesnt really like me..."

well. im 19. and im depressed. but the basis of this has changed. im depressed for different reasons than what i used to be, and then there is still **** that ****s with me.
ive learned to live with it.

see i think maybe you should just talk to them girls you mentioned a little more. as it seems too me thats want they want. it always helps to talk.
even though in you mind they should be happy, they can still be depressed. its not that they are ungrateful but that every body was a different views on bad.

for example. one guy could have been beat all the time as a kid. and now be depressed.

another could have been on alot of pills as a kid and now have social issues cause of it. and now be depressed.

both are completely different. but the level if badness is still there. only ones view of bad is different from the others. but it dosent make either one any less depressing.

the reason nobody takes teenagers seriously....

1) They always pass themselves off as "I can do that... I'm mature enough... I'm intelligent enough... I could do that better then you can" (dating, driving, jobs, planning their life, whatever)

2) Teenagers also rapidly go to wanting to kill themselves when girlfriend of the week leaves them. Adults just look at this and go "uhh... try getting divorced when your wife calls the movers using your credit card and takes every last thing in the house and moves somewhere you have no idea where and all you have is a very large empty house and a huge lease/mortgage to pay and she didnt pay a single bill this month and they were all due today and all you have is a number for her lawyer. She canceled her Cell and oh by the way.. you just bought her a new car the week before and she changed jobs the week before to a job with much less hours because she was going to spend time at home with the kids"

3) Until they live on their own paying their own bills and doing it all with their crummy pay job adults just of course roll their eyes when they claim to know everything but still keep screwing it all up. We really like it when they talk about how they're going to be important and special and everyone will know who they are and want their opinion.

I know a guy who has all that, except his dad sometimes hits him. Right now hes currently disowned by his dad (everything in his room except his bed and some clothes were taken away from him), And he was to pay/work to live in his house. hes only 14/15 too. He also cant go anywhere, for some weird reason. He was thinking about suicide/running away but managed to talk him out of it. I don't know how hes gonna handle this though...

Sadly, I actually had a good laugh at that one.
Anyway, in my opinion its because they want attention. If someone were really suicidal, they probably wouldn't say anything, depending on the person. It's just drama. Stay away from drama because it tends to ass rape you.

That's child abuse. Tell him to see someone. Like the police.

The funny thing is, his dads making HIM see a counselor, even though he hasnt done anything.... we told him to tell the councelor about his dad but he refuses... Hes scared his dad will be taken away, and then he ways his mom and 3 brothers would be screwed over, because his dad makes all the money... I really don't know what to tell him

some people never even mention suicide, they just do it, that proves there's no attention to be saught, only to die and leave this world of pain. but i do agree there are alot of teenagers seeking attention, but true pain exists, and its not for attention that they x them selfs.
