So my friend wants to die
Basically, I've got a friend who shall remain nameless (as if it would matter since this is a forum), who has managed to convince himself that life is not worth living, and damn he makes one good case. I talked to him on MSN for nearly 3 hours on the topic. He wants to kill himself, not because of some emo reason, but because he literally can not find a single reason worth living. He is a very intelligent person and had a decent life planned out for himself.
Then one day in highschool he just gave up on it all. Right after graduation he fell into a slump and became hugely anti-social. Didn't go out or do things with friends for nearly an entire year, and just recently visited some friends as a group. He dropped out of college, won't get a job, and I have talked to his parents saying he cries himself to sleep on a nightly basis, and I am at a complete loss as to what to do. I want to call someone but I don't know if he really would do it. He has said "I'd have killed myself long ago but I'm too much of a coward"
I have a pretty good idea that the reason he feels this way was a total complete heartbreak he went through during highschool, and after it happend he pretty much had a nervous breakdown. He claims he feels this way not for some "stupid emo reason" but he "can't analytically find a single logical reason to survive any longer":|
