'Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.' And the truth is, everyone has thought about suicide, some have even tried. Suicide isn't really about killing one's self. It's about the feeling of powerlessness and the desperate need to escape. It really comes down to a person feeling like no one is listening. I've worked in a psych hospital for several years, and if a person want to commit suicide, to really kill themselves, they'll do it. If someone has failed, they wanted to fail. They wanted to get caught or stopped or talked down. There are so many people who have tried to commit suicide, it is not a condemnable action. As for whether or not you should date them, that really comes down to how well you trust this person and your ability to work with them. Having now known of this, that only means you know that they are reaching out for someone. If you're alright being that person, being the support they need, then go for it. People struggle so much in life, and just because you date someone who hasn't ever tried to commit suicide doesn't grantee they won't in the future. I feel your struggle and hope things work out0

Yeah because we all have things in our past we aren't proud of.
"Do not judge one by their past, instead look at who they become from it."
Although some of us have very rocky pasts.
They have helped mold us into a better individual.
That person was at a time or place in their life where they lacked self worth.
I would be interested to know what caused that.
I would let that person know that I value them and they are better than the negative things they felt about themselves.
The persons mindset s probably different now.
Why would I leave a permanent stamp on the person defining him/her by past actions?
That isn't right in my opinion.
I see people as they are now.
We have all been 'someone else' or 'not ourselves' at one point.
Life has a way of doing that to you.
I would just be glad him/her saw the light and made it out of that dark hole.0
