Her mother is not around sadly, but I made it clear that if she was serious about it I'd have her hospitalized.My sister is with her to keep her company and comfort her, as of now she's just crying and sleeping.
Usually, suicidal threats are a conscious means of trying to prevent you from leaving her. You cannot yield to those threats or her manipulative behavior will only be reinforced.Sometimes, people follow through on suicidal threats and, even though they don't really want to die, the effort they make may actually be successful so you absolutely must take the threats seriously.Good luck.
I understand, that's why I'm having someone keeping a close eye on her just to be sure nothing bad happens.
Grazie per l'MHO!
Prego amico mio!

Totally recovered its been over a decade.

That sounds really terrible!
I've developed a somewhat callous view but I don't think pity should ever be a strong motivator behind our actions, at least not to the extent of allowing others to repeatedly fail in their responsibilities or, worse, to let them dictate our lives.
Even from a most compassionate POV, it doesn't necessarily do the other person a favor by conditioning them to think it's rewarding to threaten and coerce others in this way. If they are suffering genuine psychological issues, then they probably belong in therapy or even in a hospital if we care about what's best for them.
It's personally think threatening suicide it's a very dirty move to pull off.
I usually think so as well and I don't think most would follow through with it. I think it's a very childish coercion tactic in most cases and probably more attributed to immaturity than serious psychological issues. With either case though, about the worst thing I can think of to do is simply cave in to such demands.
That's a really horrible thing that happened.
Yeah but I’ve survived. So I’m blessed
I completely agree. Had it done to me too. I found this really reassuring
@Protein_mate Years of psychology my friend. Glad to help!
She did it but I told her that if she was serious I would hsve called the authorities and got her hospitalized.She stopped.
Good for you
Oh sorry, I read this as “should they ever threaten suicide” for some reason. But no ones ever done that to me thankfully.
I completely agree with what you said though.Threatening suicide is a dirty and dishonest tactic.
But imagine how you would feel if they actually did it. Easy to say all that rn
@BrokenSpiritedBoy It would be sad but I wouldn’t blame myself. No one has ever threatened to kill themselves over me, but I have been in manipulative relationships before. He would lie and make threats and say whatever he needed to say get whatever he wanted me to do. After we went our separate ways he never all of his lies came to the light and none of his threats were fulfilled. I promised myself I would never let someone manipulate me like that again. I am never going back to a relationship like that. A suicide threat would make me leave immediately.
That's cold hearted
Threatening suicide is a dirty, manipulative and dishonest tactic.
@Jean-Marie_Céline yea but you guys are thinking that if they threaten suicide they are playing when they might not be
@BrokenSpiritedBoy Just to be sure they are not joking then it'd be right to call the authorities and get them institutionalized.They need professional help.
@ChefCurry It’s not cold hearted. It’s cold hearted of them to put me in a position where I have to feel like I don’t have a choice.
@BrokenSpiritedBoy It doesn’t matter if they’re playing or not. That is not a relationship that is healthy. I would try to get them help, but I’m not going to stay in a relationship that I feel forced into staying in.
@BrokenSpiritedBoy I had a friend shoot himself in the head right in front of his wife. the end.
@highjinx That’s a sad story.
I'm sorry you had to go through that.
It's fine, I should have just told him to go kill himself.
Indeed it is
I hope you know what is the best course of action to take
I told her that if she's serious I'm calling the authorities and getting her hospitalized.
i'd kill myself for you, I'd kill you for my self, I only hate you because I love you , If I can't have you no one can !
@highjinx huh? You probably got the wrong question.
just some of the things that have been said to me over the years.
Is that picture in West Point?
@midnightmoon05 West Point?
never mind... look like it.
Has anyone ever told you you're too nice?
@LMNOP123 Actually yes.
Yes. It sounds like your generosity extends even to those who don't deserve it. Be careful of those who may want to take advantage of it my friend.
@LMNOP123 It's not like she was a bad person. She was with a severe depression. Got better after the treatment. And don't worry I can tell who I should be helpful with.
Glad she got help. It speaks volumes about someone when they decide they don't want to be that person anymore. That comment wasn't aimed toward her. I did my best to not make it sound like that.
you are doing the right thing. you both need to start healing.
YOU ARE A KIND HEARTED PERSON.
Intelligent remark, how you know that? I think that's largely true... they are expressing their grief. Get repetition or written note, diff deal. There is legal side to it oddly, if someone threatens, in USA, supposed to contact authorities to intervene. It still would be a sig they need some help. People can go other various bad directions with their fear, loss, shame, grief...
In my opinion is a highly dishonest and dirty tactic.
Whoa. Watch out there buddy. I could some day backfire on you.
I wouldn't feel like shit, i would've been to eager to watch you attempt it
@tonicandgin I don't recall asking you but alright
pfft you haven't blocked me, so i can respond to comments as i please :p
